Fossil Group, Inc. is among the biggest watch manufacturers in the world, with annual sales of over $3 billion. On March 15, they have become even bigger after unveiling two new smart watch products that will be added to their Android Wear lineup. However, Fossil isn’t stopping there.
The 32-year-old watch designer and manufacturer is committed to launching 100 wearable devices throughout 2016. We warned you a couple months back that wearable technology was going to explode this year so consider this a reality check. It is also a wakeup call for all the other watchmakers that are still on the fence about making the switch to wearables.
This means your station needs to be ready for another digital platform, beyond the smartphone. A good example is Deezer. The web-based music streaming service headquartered in Paris, France has shown strong effort in order to keep up with the times and released an app for the Apple Watch that allows users to control the music player as well as gain access to Flow, My Music, Charts and Mixes.
