The smartwatch market is very limited and only a small fraction of smartphone market. It is yet to get famed. People are still to be conveyed that there is a class called smartwatch. So it will definitely take time to achieve what the company targets now. But, Sony will have a better brand name for launching smartwatches for the first time. While rivals are working on first generation smartwatches, Sony has already rolled out a third generation stuff. Let's wait and watch what the rest of brands such as Apple, Samsung, HTC, and LG have to do here in the coming days.
