Poll shows a mere 80 million Americans "interested in purchasing" Watch

Apple Inc's new smartwatch may be a tough sell, with 69 percent of Americans indicating they are not interested in buying the gadget, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

However, the survey also showed limited awareness of the watch. The poll was taken after Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook rolled out the product on Monday, and only about half of respondents said they had heard news of the timepiece in the last few days.

69% uninterested, 6% unsure, and only 25% of Americans interested. In other words, more than enough to exceed even the most optimistic analysts' expectations.
