Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months.

Forums Created for the HTC Windows Phone 8X and 8S
Not too long ago, we named the HTC Windows Phone 8X our Windows Phone of the Year for 2012. However, at the time, the device didn’t yet have its own home on our forums. Now, the Windows Phone 8X and its smaller sibling, the 8S, both have their own forums on XDA.
The Windows Phone 8X is HTC’s latest flagship Windows phone device. Packing a 720p 4.3-inch Super LCD 2 display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, a gig of RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage, the device keeps pace with other flagship phones available at launch. Aside from the specs, the device features an 8 MP rear-facing camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera, and an aesthetically pleasing casing coming in at just 130 grams and 10 mm thickness.
Coming in as the little brother to the HTC Windows Phone 8X, the 8S shows its lineage by packing a powerful punch in an aesthetically appealing package. The device features a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, a 4-inch WVGA display, half a gig of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, a 5 MP camera, and a 1700 mAh battery.
