I disagree. The people who thought watches were primarily for telling the time gave up (in large part) on wearing them long ago, in favour of their smartphone. Those people never wanted something wrapped around their wrist to tell the time when their phone was good enough, and this won't win them back. The people who still wear watches just like watches, and those folks will think this Apple watch is crass. Why do I need to talk into my wrist for a reminder when I can just as well do it with my phone (which I have to be carrying anyway).

I wear a watch because I like it. I could care less if it has a date window, stopwatch, day, calendar, or whatever. I wear it because I like it, all those things are just gimmicks.
