the slow-motion collapse of the smartwatch

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

I'll never buy such a thing. Still it is an open question - will such products occupy the wrist of a younger generation and thus never leave room for a real wristwatch.
Current drop in sales seems to hit luxury watches mostly. Or only?
