3.5% already reserved an Apple Watch

Which model of Apple Watch do you want, have reserved? graph of japanese statisticsICT Research and Consulting recently conducted a survey into Apple Watch buying intentions and found a reasonable number already interested in buying one.

Demographics

Over the 13th and 14th of April 2015 550 people aged from 20 years old completed a web-based questionnaire. No information was given on how the sample was collected, so it is a bit difficult to extrapolate these numbers.

I’m no Apple fan, and I’ve got almost zero interest in any sort of smart wrist device. My mobile phone works as a pedometer, and I cannot think of other features that I’d want. The health benefits of such devices is yet to be proven, and perhaps they might even make you more unhealthy by either giving you a false sense of security or inducing hypochondria.

Checking time by wristwatch or by mobile?

Do you have a wristwatch or a mobile phone? graph of japanese statisticsHere’s a curious look at iBridge Research Plus and reported on by japan.internet.com into wristwatches.

Demographics

On the 4th of August 2009 300 members of the iBridge Research Plus monitor group who were currently employed or students completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 73.7% of the sample were male, 15.7% in their twenties, 33.0% in their thirties, 30.7% in their forties, 19.0% in their fifties, and 1.7% in their sixties.

I have a watch, but only wear it at weekends, as during weekdays at work there are more than enough clocks in the office or the railway station, so why bother? It’s also a watch I got free for Air Miles that has had all its rhinestones fall out and its sky-blue fake leather strap is not really fitting for the business environment, and anyway it gets in the way when I type.

Wristwatchs in Japan

What kind of display does your watch have? graph of japanese statisticsThis is a very straightforward look at a quite straitforward subject, wristwatches. This survey was reported on japan.internet.com and conducted by goo Research.

Demographics

Between the 6th and 11th of August 2008 1,055 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 52.2% of the sample were male, 14.5% in their teens, 19.7% in their twenties, 21.7% in their thirties, 16.3% in their forties, and 27.8% aged fifty or older.

I just got my watch battery replaced (1,000 yen from Yodobashi Camera, in case you’re wondering, but for some reason I had over 3,000 repair points on my card, so I got it for free) on my analogue-dialled stopwatch-adorned watch that I only wear at weekends, on the outside of my left wrist.

Mobile phones replacing wrist watches too

How do you most often check the time when outside? graph of japanese opinionjapan.internet.com recently published the results of a survey by Cross Marketing Inc into how people check the time. They interviewed 300 mobile phone users from their internet monitor group at the end of August, 50:50 male and female, and 20.0% in their teens, 20.0% in their twenties, 20.0% in their thirties, 20.0% in their forties, and 20.0% in their fifties.

You may remember a previous survey about two months ago where it was reported that about 40% of Japanese use their mobile phones as their main alarm clock. I also rarely wear a wristwatch, prefering to peek at my mobile for the time checks. It’s not quite as convenient as a watch, but a watch just gets in the way when I’m typing, I feel.
