Amazon UK launched a Wearable Technology Store today
Today Amazon emailed Tech Assimilate to inform us that it has opened the Amazon Wearable Technology Store aimed at UK savvy shoppers who want to buy into the next big IT thing. At the time of writing the store contains over 100 different wearable tech products including activity trackers, smart watches, smart glasses, wearable cameras and more.
Xavier Garambois, Vice President of EU Retail at Amazon said that “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.” Garambois added in explanation of the store opening “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.”
The Amazon UK Director of Consumer Electronics, Andrew Milliken, heralded the store opening saying that sales of wearable tech are now really taking off so the devices really will benefit from having their own store section. However he said that Amazon’s new Wearable Technology Store isn’t just about selling such devices it also is home to a ‘Learning Centre’ including product details, compatibility information, images and videos, reviews and in-depth buying guides, as well as the latest expert recommendations.
Amazon went on to highlight some of the wide array of wearable tech products on offer in this UK Amazon Wearable Technology Store right now including; the A Sauvage wireless charging trousers (£889!) as seen on Tech Assimilate recently and various smartbands, smart glasses and health monitors.
