More than two-thirds of teens don't wear watches, and only 19 percent of Americans bought a watch in 2011. Right now, more than half of people who buy smartwatches wind up ditching them because the novelty wears off. Literally the only reason some folks think the young might adopt watches now is that Apple made one.
But old people? Old people love the shit out of wearing their technology.
If you know any elderly people who've leapt into the future and bought themselves an iPhone, the odds are good you also know folks who keep their phones on a cord around their neck. Wearing your gadget makes it harder to lose or forget, and most old people are already still wearing watches out of habit. It's a match made in heaven! Or at least in the Paradise Valley Retirement Home.
