The vast majority of people I know carry along at least one mobile phone. Even the simplest models - the ones that are a little bit smaller than a brick, the ones still using small black and white old fashioned LCD screen - feature a clock display.
You would have to look very hard for a mobile phone that does not have Time display of one sort or other.
How many people that you know do not wear a watch because they they have time display on their phone? I know one such person.
I do not think that there was significant drop in watch production in recent years.
It is the same with dedicated e-book reading devices. Just ask here if you find an owner of an e-book reading device that does not own at least one PC or notebook, or netbook, or pda, or smartphone or a combination of them.
I own 9 computers that can be used to read books, yet the vast majority of my reading gets done on my trusty Sony Reader PRS-500.
