Is it possible to imagine a change in the market for high-end timepieces in the coming years? Will consumers of luxury watchmaking resist the call of connected watches?What are the best luxury smart watches?
The prices of connected smart watches & their functions
Connected watches are currently offered at relatively reasonable prices, between 180 dollars and 270 dollars for example to buy a Sony Smatwatch or the Samsung Galaxy Gear. Even if brands like MyKronoz want to attack this market with ultra-competitive prices to “become the Swatch of the smartwatch”, it would seem surprising that future market entrants adopt the same strategy, this will certainly not be the case at Apple which has never accustomed its consumers to low cost prices.
So, match or not match?
The future of connected watches is certainly largely in the health sector, the Apple brand recalled when it brought in blood experts at the start of the year as well as a sleep specialist working at Philips. So will we all wear a smartwatch on our wrists in a few years to monitor our constants?
Beautiful watches will undoubtedly always have their place and their audience, but don’t watch manufacturers have an interest in taking a close look at this market?
