Amazon Launches Wearable Technology Store
Posted on May 3, 2014Amazon has launched a Wearable Technology store. The wearable tech category is just beginning to explode. Many devices are already available, such as activity trackers, healthcare devices and wearable cameras. The category is expected to really explode as smart watches arrive from major brands later this year and into next year. Some of the brands the store is carrying include Samsung, Jawbone, GoPro, Basis and Misfit. The store also carries wearables for babies and pets.
John Nemeth, Director of Wireless and Mobile Electronics at Amazon, says in a statement, "Wearable technology is an exciting category with rapid innovation and our customers are increasingly coming to Amazon to shop and learn about these devices. We're thrilled to bring our customers a store with the largest selection and great prices that helps eliminate the guesswork when deciding which wearable devices best fit their needs-whether that is tracking activity, staying connected through smart watches or capturing their next adventure with wearable cameras."
The store features a Learning Center that provides how-to videos and buying guides. You can find the Wearable Technology store here on Amazon.com.
