The Janaury issue of WatchPro is out now and available to view online or download to you iPad, Kindle or Android tablet.
The latest issue is guest edited by Helen Wood, Fossil Group UK managing director, and the company’s senior management team. The issue explores the idea of competition on the global business landscape through a number of features dealing with various corporate fields; from human resources to merchandising to digital presence and branding.
Wood also seeks the opinions of business experts outside of the watch industry; turning to Chris Good, president of Estee Lauder Companies UK and Ireland, for his take on retailing and giving a brand an omnichannel presence.
We also launch the first issue of SmartWatchPro, our new quarterly pull-out supplement dedicated to the smartwatches. In the debut issue we talk to Roger Enright, Samsung UK’s product director for IT & Mobile, for his thoughts on market growth, where the technology is headed and what it will take to make smartwatches a mainstay of the tech sector. We also ask some of the watch industry’s most influential buyers where they stand on this emerging product.
Ahead of January’s Geneva gathering of luxury watch brands, we also take a look at the best watches that will be on show at SIHH.
