The new store will also sell products of emerging brands like Basis, Amazon and Misfit.
Amazon in its announcement said, “Customers will be able to learn about devices which are ‘coming soon’ and be amongst the first to purchase the latest technology by pre-ordering new releases, including the A Sauvage Wireless Charging Trousers.”
The store also has a learning centre for those who are not familiar with the inner workings of the devices which are lined up in the store.
The tutorial will include, compatibility information, product details, images, videos, buying guides and product reviews. With this recent move, Amazon is stepping up to encourage the usage of wearable devices among consumers, who have so far not really warmed up to the idea of wearable technology.
