Apple is expected to sell more than 10 million Apple Watches in 2015

That iThingy You're Wearing

Apple is currently on track to sell more than 10 million Apple Watches in 2015. That’s according to a new report from Digitimes, which has a hit-or-miss record when it comes to Apple news.

But the publication says that Apple has also placed an order for 4 million watches for the busy holiday shopping season.

The report also has an interesting tidbit about the second-generation device. While the current watch has exclusively been built by Quanta Computer, Apple is apparently looking for a secondary partner to help build the Apple Watch 2. The company has talked with Inventec, Wistron, and Foxconn Electronics.

Just last week, another report said that the Apple Watch 2 could officially hit the market sometime in the second or third quarter of 2016. It reportedly will offer better battery life and possibly some type of FaceTime camera.

The original watch landed back in April. Since then, along with a number of new bands, Apple also unveiled a rose gold and yellow gold version of the Sport edition. Back in October, the high-end Apple Watch Hermès also hit the market.

And yesterday, the official Apple Watch charging dock arrived with a retail price of $79.
