The rise of wearable technology is rapidly gaining pace and we are starting to see plenty of different wearable devices including activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and even wearable cameras being sold across multiple stores. Being quick to spot a need for a “one stop shop”, Amazon UK have today launched their own dedicated Wearable Technology Store.

Well known manufactures such as Sony,Samsung,Garmin,Jawbone and Gopro will feature on the store along with some of the newer and upcoming brands that are entering the wearable market. In addition, Amazon will also include a learning centre for those that are new to wearable tech and will provide information such as product details, compatibility information, images, videos, reviews and buying guides.

To focus on providing people with all the information they need to understand these new devices and make the best possible choice is a great move for not only Amazon but also for the wearable industry too.

Amazon’s UK Wearable Store is now live, so take a look and tell us what you think.
