HONG KONG WATCH & CLOCK FAIR

TALKING TRENDS AT THE ABSOLUTE HOROLOGICAL CONVENT


THE FUTURE IS SMART!

Smart watch technology emerged as a clear winner. It points to the future and there is no doubt about that. In the fair, Smart watch zones created new business opportunities. There some interesting exhibitors here. The development of smart watches sees great potential in recent years. The survey conducted by an independent research agency during the Watch & Clock Fair last year also found that buyers and exhibitors regarded smart watches as the industry’s most popular item this year.

Wearable Tech at Salon de TE presented a vast selection of branded smart watches with the latest technologies and functionalities. In addition, the OEM Smart Watches zone inaugurated last year and returned to wide industry appeal this year. Thus, a lot of prominence and importance will be given to smartwatch technology. Multifunction features connected to smartphones via WiFi or Bluetooth are constantly developing to provide news and investment updates, do fitness tracking, record distances and GPS locations. There will be a lot of development in these areas.

High-end technology offering a variety of multi-functional features are becoming very popular. Watches enabled with NFC chips and QR codes as well as sharing facilities will gain importance. Within this segment, there is also a good scope of watches that merge the traditional analogue system with smart technology.
