The international team behind the Kairos smartwatch concept had a phenomenal Baselworld debut signing a strategic partnership with Sequel AG just days after the show closed.
Sequel AG, the global licensee for Guess and Gc watches, will benefit from Kairos’ hybrid mechanical smartwatch concept, which pairs mechanical watch with a transparent OLED watch glass to allow a graphic display, as well as its T-Band technology, which puts smartwatch technology inside a watch strap.
Cindy Livingston, president and CEO of Sequel AG, said: “When we discussed the potential collaboration with Kairos and saw the demonstration of the Hybrid Mechanical Smart Watch and T-Band, we saw an opportunity. The smart watch technology, combined with the design of our products, fit perfectly with the company culture and was too good to pass.”
Sam Yang, founder and managing director of Kairos Watches, added: “Mechanical watch enthusiasts who are interested in the convenience of a smart watch will soon be able to choose amongst an array of leading watch brands that embrace Kairos’ cutting-edge smart watch technologies.”
Sequel has already worked with US smartwatch company, Martian, for its debut smartwatch, Guess Connect.
