The Samsung Galaxy Watch3 and Galaxy Buds Live have tripled the sales of their predecessors during the first weeks of availability (they went on sale on August 6). This report comes from Korean agency Yonhap News, which adds that Mystic Bronze was the color of choice for the buds – half of the people who bought them picked the bronze version.
The Buds Live reached 300,000 sales in the two weeks following the launch. You can read our review if you’re wondering whether you should get a pair for yourself.
The Galaxy Watch3 sales hit the 60,000 mark, triple what the Galaxy Watch Active2 achieved early on. The Watch3 also broke Samsung’s record for first-day sales by moving 7,000 units. Not bad considering the higher price point – the Watch Active2 started at €300 (€400 for the stainless steel version) while the Watch3 started at €430.

Note that these sales numbers are for South Korea only, but the strong demand should still be very indicative of their popularity globally.
