At JCK Las Vegas 2015, wearables were at home amongst diamond and gem retailers. Indeed, Mark Hanna, CMO of Richline Group, hosted a talk that was so well-attended it was standing room only. Three wearables manufacturers in particular stood out.
Richline Group will showcase the latest from Cuff—a collection of jewelry pieces made to hold a tiny plastic “notifier” device that alerts you to incoming calls, texts, and/or emails. The technological aspect is modular; wearers simply move the mobile device into one of many Cuff pieces, such as from a bracelet to a pendant.
Cuff is one of the more style-centric wearable collections available for wholesale, which makes it a good fit for jewelry retailers who may be slightly wary of stocking a smart device. The collection retails from $29 for a simple leather-like cuff to $199 for a package that includes the device and all available jewelry styles.
Elemoon is that rare breed of wearable: a sleek bracelet whose functionality is matched only by its fashion sense. Made of natural white or black polymer with a gold- or silver-plated lining, Elemoon not only is equipped with a circuit of LED lights in a rainbow of colors that can be programmed to match any outfit or mood, but also has all the usual array of features expected of a wearable: fitness tracking, custom notification alerts, a find-your-phone feature, etc.
“I wanted to make wearable tech sexy, fun, and more appealing to a bigger market: women,” says Elemoon founder Jing Zhou. Mission accomplished.
Garmin was one of the first to produce a popular activity tracker. And its sporty watches and bands—which range from the slim Fitbit-style $99 vívofit band to the rugged, steel $599 fenix activity watch—are some of the heartiest and most functionally diverse wearables on the market. A great match for your terminally fit clientele!
