Amazon launches wearable technology store in UK
Monday July 21 2014
Online retail giant Amazon has launched a store devoted to wearable technology in the UK which features more than 100 different wearable devices including activity trackers, smart watches, smart glasses, and wearable cameras.
As well as items from established brands such as Sony, Samsung, Garmin, Jawbone and GoPro, the store will feature products from emerging brands.
Customers will be able to learn about devices which are ‘coming soon’ and pre-order new releases. The store also features a ‘Learning Centre’ including product details, compatibility information, images and videos, reviews and in-depth buying guides, as well as expert recommendations.
Xavier Garambois, vice president of EU retail at Amazon, said: “The advances in wearable technology mean that customers can now charge their phone through their clothing, monitor their sleep patterns and even track their pets.
“This new store allows customers to find whatever they are looking for in one place – whether that is tracking fitness, staying connected through smart watches or capturing every adventure with wearable cameras.”
