The Apple Watch sold out online only an hour after it was made available for preorder. Fans also flocked to Apple stores throughout the world as the watch was available to try on by appointment, but not to actually buy. The watch officially goes on sale on April 24th, but Apple has been pushing hard to make it seem to be a must-have accessory.
Analysts say it is too early to know well the watch will sell. The primary problem for Apple is to still have a high demand once the initial wave of enthusiasm from their famously obsessive supporters dies down. CEO Tim Cook described the sales as “great” to a group of customers.
