Wearable technology proved to be a big hit with consumers at the recently concluded The PC Show 2014
Wearable fitness gadgets showcasing at The PC Show 2014 such as the Garmin Vivofit, Jawbone Up24, Pebble and Samsung Gear Fit saw increased consumer interests.
Playing a larger part in empowering consumers to monitor their health, these gadgets have seen increased popularity since its inception.
“Fitness trackers like the Garmin Vivofit cater to a new generation of customers who are more health conscious and more willing to invest in fitness products to help them achieve a healthier lifestyle amid their busy schedule,” said Vincent Lim, Service and Event Manager for Navicom Technology, Garmin distributor in Singapore
Likewise, Jeffrey Ho, Product Manager of Digital Hub Pte Ltd, Jawbone distributor in Singapore added that gym memberships used to be the preferred healthy lifestyle incentive, “We see our products as a fitness alternative, allowing the consumer to track their daily fitness and health activity. The Jawbone Up24 saw brisk business. In addition to individual user interest, we saw a number of bulk purchases of Jawbone Up24 by Singapore-based businesses.”
The much anticipated Google Glass was also featured at the newly launched ‘Know Your Tech’ showcase. Sponsored by Stuff Singapore, the Google Glass impressed show visitors with features and functions such as “voice actions”, which allows wearers to issue voice commands to the device.
The 400 sq m ‘Know Your Tech’ sales-free exhibition zone saw leading brands engaging consumers with hands-on demonstrations of their newest and most interesting products.
The PC Show 2014 also played host to an array of leading brand names such as ASUS, Aztech, Brother, Canon, Case Logic, Creative, Dell, D-Link, Epson, Fuji Xerox, Fujifilm, HP, Lenovo, M1, Microsoft, Samsung, Seagate, SingTel, StarHub and Toshiba.
