For women, yes, I see it being a problem to gain a large market share. For men, on the other hand, current smartwatch formfactors are not that different from watches like the G Shock, for example, which people currently wear just because they like it. I see it being inevitable.

Some Pebble experience

I've been using the Pebble for about 8 months, and it meets my needs, but I don't believe that niche will generate a large market.

During my work week I can glance at my watch and see whose email has just arrived without fumbling for my phone; I can even do this casually in a meeting, glance at my watch while driving (only to get a name) and see who is calling my phone before I yank it out of my pocket or off my belt. I have not tried most of the other apps, don't need them (yet).

 

Weekends the Pebble sits on the nightstand and some piece of Swiss timekeeping is used. Occasionaly I will look at my analog watch to see why my phone buzzed. LOL
