Yes the smartwatch was very interesting. But the non-backlit display for a platform that supports limited features and no apps is, as you suggest, probably a non-starter with consumers who have swankier albeit power hungry options.

Human-powered watch

 The heat-powered watch was a long-overdue development. I suspect it will actually make more money as an introduction to the firm's serious generators than in actual consumer sales.

There are watch movements that generate electrical energy from the wearer's actions, (evolved from the classic mechanical self-winding watch). Quantitative data on actual power is rather scarce, though.I wonder how they compare in possible output?
