“Apple’s Apple Watch is everywhere,” Andrew Tonner writes for The Motley Fool. “Unfortunately, the company’s underwhelming Spring Forward event last week suggests Apple’s next great product is more more sizzle than steak.”

“I think it’s worth addressing a significant question that has been largely absent from the discussion. What happens if Apple Watch fails?” Tonner writes. “Let’s start with the worst-case scenario — assessing how a complete flop on the Apple Watch’s part could impact the company’s sales and stock price… Apple Watch’s absolute failure could theoretically shave a mere 4.5% off Apple’s top-line fiscal 2015 growth rate, and that’s assuming the revenue growth figure I’m using here is updated to reflect analysts’ current estimates coming out of this week’s event. Given the impressive MacBook and Apple TV news, these estimates might lowball Apple’s estimated revenue. Again, this assumes zero Apple Watch sales, which we can probably all agree is far from likely.”
