Nearly a third of US teenagers, according to a recent study by the influential investment firm Piper Sandler, already possess an Apple Watch. It comes after a New York Times article detailing how parents are purchasing Apple’s wearable for children as young as five.
According to the most recent of the two Taking Stock With Teens reports, 31% of US teenagers presently own an Apple Watch, and another 16% have plans to get one.
Although the poll is thorough, Philip Elmer-DeWitt, who studied the most recent report, questions if it is actually representative.
My opinion: In its 21st year, this thorough poll still oversamples wealthy areas in North America. Trends can be best captured with it.
That does seem plausible considering that 31% of all US youths would fit into that category.
According to the same study, 88% of American teenagers want to get an iPhone as their next phone, and 87% already possess one.
There’s a good likelihood that the majority of people who wear smartwatches at all do so because of the Apple Watch. According to a recent estimate, Apple continues to dominate the wearable industry, selling more than three times as many watches as its closest rival, Samsung.
With the release of the SE 2 last month, Apple’s position has probably improved. The model is probably going to be a popular choice for parents to purchase for their children because it has a starting price of $249, the same CPU as the Series 8, and it has the new Crash Detection and Emergency SOS capabilities.
With the capacity to follow their children and, in the case of the cellular model, the ability to place and receive calls and send and receive messages without the cost and dangers of an iPhone, many parents believe that an Apple Watch offers a decent combination of safety and cost.
