Victor Lukerson from Time:
The Piper Jaffray survey of 7,200 teens, conducted in person and online across 41 states, aims to find out about teens’ consumption habits and technological preferences. While Apple’s iPhone was popular among the teens surveyed—two-thirds said they had one—just 16% said they were interested in buying an Apple Watch, according to Re/Code.
Interesting survey, but I think there is a flaw in their numbers. Considering you have to own an iPhone in order to use an Apple Watch - and a third of people in this survey admitted to not having one - the numbers are slightly skewed. Taking into account the ~33% of teens participating in this survey who don't own iPhones, the percentage of interested buyers would increase from 16% to roughly 25%.
I feel like these things should be accounted for when making claims on an unreleased product.
