USA Today and GBH Insights estimate that 20 million Apple Watches were sold in 2017. Even accounting for any errors in the sales estimations the precisely correct answer will still be ‘a lot’.
That makes it the 4th best-selling tech gadget and #1 best-selling wearable. By inference it will also be the best-selling sports watch although many purchasers may have bought it for non-sporty reasons.

Nice try Fitbit. (Fitbit doomed? article)
Whilst I have been watching Garmin Running Power downloads regularly; now at over 5000 and gaining 1,500 over the holiday period, I would also love to see what STRYD’s downloads are on the Apple store
I’ll try to get some figures off STRYD for those downloads (but suspect that none will be forthcoming). So it might be some time before we see if STRYD’s move to also support Apple’s watch was a masterstroke…or not. (I suspect it will be ‘at least a good idea’)
