SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Sales of Apple Inc’s (AAPL.O) smartwatch have exceeded internal expectations since the device’s April launch, Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri told Reuters in an interview on Tuesday.

He also said a strong dollar has created challenges for Apple. Gains in the dollar versus other currencies in recent quarters have cut into the revenue of many U.S. multinationals that sell products overseas.
