I think the key difference this time is that the smartwatch is connected to smartphone (or information network). A wristwatch has been the place to check the most important information (i.e. current time) for achieving job efficiently. Today, email and SNS msgs are a part of such info. In that sense, I agree with what NTKN says above.

I think Smartwatch's often overlooked setback is that it usually requires two hands; one hand or wrist to wear the device and the other to operate it. This is an unfavorable condition, considering most users can operate a smartphone with one hand. It could be great if a technologies like the following gets applied... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10bzMZJO4Vk

Smart watch screens are too small and impractical. In fact, this is why the tablet is making so much progress alongside the smartphone. Most people I know who have smartphones have migrated or are migrating to the bigger screen smartphones.

A smart watch is an adjunct, not a replacement, for a phone. I started wearing a Pebble recently, after not wearing a watch for some years, and it is convenient to have time and notifications on my wrist rather than having to dig in my pocket for the phone.

I do not see much of a market for watches. They are obsolete relative to a smart phone, which can tell the time just fine. Tablets and smart phones are what most people need, along with a laptop for work and school. Most electronics are just commodities these days.
