We don’t often take into consideration estimated manufacturing prices for gadgets as of late, however an evaluation from Counterpoint was launched this week that estimates the fee to supply a Pixel Watch (LTE) is round $123. That’s neat to consider, proper?
In a useful breakdown for this value, you understand what number of items are required to make a watch like this tick. The show, case, mobile connectivity, sensors, battery, processor and reminiscence, plus even the watch bands. All of it provides up, as they are saying. The graph under breaks down the proportion of the whole price for every unit. As you possibly can see, processing and reminiscence prices take up the biggest portion at 26.9%. If the $123 per unit is correct, that’s $33 being spent on processing and reminiscence alone.
If we would like, we may all the time take it a step additional and understand that the precise manufacturing and delivery of every unit has its personal price, too. As far we all know, Counterpoint’s evaluation doesn’t account for these issues, so Google’s precise price to fabricate and distribute the watch might be a bit greater. For Google’s sake, we hope it’s not an excessive amount of greater, although.
Pixel Watch retails at $349 for the WiFi mannequin, so when all is claimed and carried out, it’s assumed that Google is making a tidy little revenue. To run a profitable enterprise, that appears essential.
