Swatch launched its own smart watches without Apple 13


Swatch Touch

Last week, flashed a rumor about the negotiations between the Swiss company Swatch and the American company Apple. The subject of negotiations, according to the information, was a joint production of the devices range iWatch . It seems that this rumor did not take seriously no one except Nick Hayek, General Director of Swatch, who hastened to refute him, passing by sharing some plans.

According to the CEO of the manufacturer of hours, they not only do not work on a joint product from Apple, but even just do not need such a partnership, because the next year they have already planned out their own smart clock with an attractive set of features for athletes. Here are his words for the Swiss newspaper NZZ am Sonntag:

By 2015, we integrate the opportunities for fitness in our product line Swatch Touch. The device will remain for hours, but will be equipped with the most requested features for tracking body.
< ...>
We already have all the know-how, and we do not need a partnership.

Apparently slipped through the absurd rumor much groundwork for the popular hours, which in the past did not differ friendly attitude to the company that gave the world the iPhone and iPad. We once wrote that Swiss watchmakers can be considered shameful relationship with Apple, denatures their long tradition. Perhaps that is why Nick Hayek could not miss this rumor. But now we know that the market for smart hours will fight not only the manufacturers of portable electronics, but also well-known watch brands. Observe such a confrontation had ever seen.
