Apple Watch outsells the entire Swiss Watch industry in 2019 • Strategy Analytics
<p>According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, Apple Watch outsold the entire Swiss watch industry by a huge margin in 2019. Apple Watch shipped 31 million units worldwide in 2019, compared with 21 million for all Swiss watch brands combined. Swiss companies, like Swatch, are losing the smartwatch wars.

Steven Waltzer, Senior Analyst at Strategy Analytics, said, “We estimate Apple Watch shipped 30.7 million units worldwide in 2019, growing a healthy 36 percent from 22.5 million in 2018. A blend of attractive design, user-friendly tech and sticky apps makes the Apple Watch wildly popular in North America, Western Europe and Asia.”

Neil Mawston, Executive Director at Strategy Analytics, added, “We estimate the entire Swiss watch industry together shipped 21.1 million units worldwide in 2019, falling 13 percent from 24.2 million in 2018. Analog wristwatches remain popular among older consumers, but younger buyers are tipping toward smartwatches and computerized wristwear.”</p>

Plus the replacement rate for Apple Watches is going to be way higher than for Swiss watches. They're facing the classic high-end disruption problem that Nokia and others faced when the iPhone arrived in 2017: they're OK at the hardware, but the software utterly eludes them. This time, though, there isn't a more-than-good-enough Android to save them. (Not that it saved Nokia or BlackBerry either.)
