According to fresh data coming from Slice Intelligence and reported by Quartz publication, it seems that around 2.5 million Apple Watch orders have been processed in the United States in the first five weeks of its availability.
The report mentions that more than half of the orders placed so far came on April 10, which is the first day of pre-orders. Slice Intelligence points that the the Apple Watch is currently averaging 30,000 orders per day after it has seen a notable rise on April 24. That was the day when most initial Apple Watch pre-orders that weren't high in demand, began arriving to customers.
If we take these numbers into consideration, it seems that Apple Watch sales are outpacing early sales of the iPod and iPhone, and even topping those of the iPad. Dan Frommer with the publication further makes a valid point:
"To be sure, it’s still early days for the Apple Watch and the broader wearable-gadgets market. It took Apple more than two years to sell 2 million iPods, and several months to sell that many iPhones. And, to reiterate: This is a projection based on one company’s data in one country. Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment on its accuracy."
