> Smartwatches in general might be suffering, but it’s looking more and more like Apple Watch is a hit.

Sigh. Yes, John. A hit. Estimated to be in fourth place, just above Samsung in fifth and final place, and just below the fitness trackers.

Let's get real, here. Apple Watch is really nice, but they don't make any sense to people with money who *aren't* dedicated Apple fanbois.

Oh and yes, I have one and don't use it for fitness tracking.

You do realise that these estimates are BS, right?

Didn't Gruber used to criticize CEOs who say that "X product is selling great" without releasing any sales figures?

You'd think they'd just release the Apple Watch numbers like Steve used to.

Depends who you ask. I'm not much of a fan of analysts, but I'm also pretty sure Gruber's doing his PR spokesperson impression again too, so I'll give IDG the benefit of the doubt.

"Cook did not respond to a request for specific sales figures for the gadget.

Apple has disclosed few details about the performance of the Apple Watch, its first new product released under Cook. The company has not broken out sales of the gadget in its earnings, instead lumping it into an "other products" category that includes devices such as the iPod and Apple TV."

Nobody knows the numbers except for Apple.

But ol' Johnny Boy has his marching orders to put on his knee pads and suck some Apple cock.
