The *what* Microsoft Surface?Maybe in some alternate reality where Microsoft's science fair projects are somehow relevant (or "successful.")
It's also in the range of highly unlikely to next-to-impossible.  Cancer that is present in so many places at once is also (90% if not 100% probability) metastatic cancer. And by then it's at an advanced stage (usually stage 4.)  Good luck with all the "healthy eating." For the sake of being fair and allowing for small miracles, it's not "impossible." But every such claim is and should be regarded as dubious *way* before we take it at face value. 
It's little details like this, finely tuned, perfected and integrated so seamlessly, that really set Apple apart. All those little things add up.
Remember the watch industry exactly as it is today. It's going to look a whole lot different. It too, now belongs to Apple.
Microsoft's strategy:   Kill Windows Phone.    I'm waiting for the big "reset" or "fold into ____ division" announcement.   I honestly expected it around two years ago. But, ever Zune-like, MS hangs on to a dead platform way past the advanced stages of decay.

It then becomes a question of how long different segments of this population are willing to wait until they upgrade.   iPad sales will *naturally* level off. No one can expect iPad sales to follow the same course as iPhone sales. iPads are treated more like computers or devices that are complementary to computers. They aren't "priority" devices like smartphones...
Know what'll happen to a lot of the non-watch, phone-only folks?   They'll TRY the Watch. Because Apple. Apple stuff ALWAYS gets tried (because Apple, and Apple's reputation... and because ... stuff people WANT ..... because Apple.) Even if you consider JUST the Apple Store. Walk into any one. You'll see it's always jammed to the rafters, with people trying stuff out.    That's all Apple needs. Just TRY it. At the store, or with a friend who has one, etc. And they...
The day Apple iPhone'd watches.    Apple's revolutionizing touch:   Computers. On-screen typography. Media players. Digital content distribution (iTunes, App Store, etc.) The music industry.  Retail.  Phones.  Tablets.  And now watches.   What's next?
The Apple Watch just did an iPhone on the watch industry.
