apple-iwatch-sms-readThe Apple Watch is a make or break moment for Apple. It is after all a new product category in which Apple is venturing into, not to mention it is also a market in which while there is a lot of interest, a clear and obvious leader has yet to emerge, so like we said, the Apple Watch could either end up leading the pack like Apple did with the iPhone and iPad, or it could end up flopping.

That being said Apple seems to be pretty confident about the wearable. A report from The Wall Street Journal has revealed that Apple could have ordered as many as 5-6 million Apple Watch devices from their suppliers. The 5-6 million units are said to be a combination of the three different models that Apple showed off last year, but the exact breakdown remains unknown.

However half of that 5-6 million figure will go towards the entry-level Apple Watch model, hinting that Apple expects more customers to be going for its cheaper option rather than its mid-range or even high-end Apple Watch Edition model. Pricing for the other models has yet to be revealed, but the entry-level Apple Watch Sport is expected to retail starting at $350.

Many are expecting the Apple Watch to be huge for Apple. An analyst predicted that it could account for as much as 36% of Apple’s revenue growth, with another analyst predicting 10 million Apple Watch units to be shipped in 2015 alone. In any case we guess we will have to wait and see for ourselves, but in the meantime those who are interested can pick up the device in April when it has been released.
