Slice Intelligence: The Apple Watch price cut is working

Apple’s decision to cut Apple Watch pricing is working, as average daily sales over the last month jumped 250% sequentially, according to new data from Slice Intelligence — as noted by AppleInsider

Last month Apple gave the smartwatch a permanent $50 price cut with the 38-millimeter model of the Sports model available starting at $299 and the 42-millimeter version starting at $349. Slice's statistics account for the last month of sales, excluding March 21, the day Apple cut Watch pricing.

The research group also says that sales of the iPhone SE pale in comparison to 2014's iPhone 6 launch. Specifically, iPhone SE generated 4% of the sales iPhone 6 saw during its first month of availability. Fifteen percent of iPhone SE buyers upgraded from a non-Apple smartphone, while 54% hadn’t purchased a phone in the past two years. The latter isup from 49% for other iPhone models.
