Remember times past when the sales of iPods led to Windows users switching to Macs? I wonder if a similar situation will occur with the Apple Watch and the iPhone. Because you need an iPhone to link with an Apple Watch, will this spur more iPhone converts as the Apple Watch gains momentum?
And before you pooh pooh the starting price tag of $350 for the Apple Watch, just remember how much iPods used to cost.
- March 2002 – Original (non-touch) Wheel 10GB $499
- September 2003 – 20GB and 40GB for $399 and $499
- September 2006 – iPod Video 30GB, 80GB for $249 and $349
iPod purchases led to purchases of $1000+ Macs, so could a $350 Apple Watch lead buyers to a $650 (unsubsidized) iPhone 6?
