Swatch is looking forward to increase its sales by increasing prices and reduce the making costs in 2015 so as to deal with the fallout from spike in its home currency. Analysts have predicted that the upcoming device from Swatch will provide a good boost in terms of sales for the company and will face competition from Apple’s internet enabled watch which is due to be launched later in 2015.
