How sad is it when what is *supposed* to be a premier mobile platform from a company with all those resources – that has been in the mobile market in earnest since 2010, uses a comparison to fledgling smartwatch sales as a means of puffery.  Wtf. Really. 
I should hope it's decent.    It's really the only market left for MS.    They've been shut out of mobile almost completely.    Same old same old. Windows and Office retreads. 
It's often because it's "the government" that's somehow involved, and these folks are completely pants-on-head paranoid about anything to do with it, even when it's actually for everyone's benefit.

That isn't the point. You're worrying about the stated purpose when the OTHER by-product is just as bad, that the stated purpose just happens to address.   Air quality.
 The operative term is carbon emissions.  Do you NOT think this is a problem notwithstanding your opinion on "global warming"? http://news.stanford.edu/news/2008/january9/co-010908.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_pollution It's what you're breathing, that is linked to large carbon foortprints multiplied person to person, corporation to corporation, industry to industry. Don't worry about the "global warming" issue – if you're so averse to it, when the efforts in...
*First minute of family road trip*   Siri:   "Hello, Quadra 610. Would you like me to take you to Scores Gentleman's Club and Bar again?"   Uh.....
 O.o What a ridiculous thing to say.  Human-induced climate change is a reality.  If you can at the very least acknowledge the impact of, say, air pollution (that *we* cause), then you can appreciate the effort being made in this area.  We essentially pour SHIT into our environment, and it (and we) are definitely the worse for it. Air quality alone should be of major concern to everyone. 
Macs have always been "fashionable" (on top of everything else that they are), and have been sold at Best Buy for as long as I can remember. I bought an iMac from there in April 2006.    Selling the Apple watch at Best Buy isn't really newsworthy. It's just a natural extension of retail. 
If the company producing the most successful wearable on the planet, having sold more than the competition combined in a ridiculously infinitesimal timeframe (that for the moment escapes me), and with a dominant customer satisfaction rating, is "desperate"....  just imagine the market condition in which all the other wearable purveyors currently find themselves. The only "collapse" that's going on is happening outside of Cupertino.  Apple singlehandedly iPhone'd the entire...
