Amazon Opens Dedicated Wearable Technology Section

Samsung Gear Fit

Unsure of what fancy wearable to buy? Amazon now has an entire landing page dedicated to them. With the wearable market currently booming, the online giant has a new page highlighting some of today’s best and brightest gadgets—and even some devices you might not have heard of. And we’re not just talking about activity trackers, either; Amazon has narrowed categories down to fitness & wellness, healthcare, cameras, smartwatches and even pets. (No, you don’t need to quantify your pet.)

Among the wearables listed on Amazon’s page includes Samsung’s new lineup of Gear 2 smartwatches, the first generation Pebble and Qualcomm’s Toq, which for some reason has been discounted by a whopping nine cents (from $249.99 to $249.90). You will also find GoPro Hero 3, Sony Action Cam, and some of Contour’s gear. Basically if it fits under the wearable umbrella, it should be listed on Amazon’s little wearable popup shop. There’s even an email listed that allows companies to email Amazon to sell their own wearable products.

In addition to some carefully curated markets, Amazon also has a learning center, where buyers can get a full rundown on what product—activity tracker versus smartwatch, for example—does what. If you don’t follow the wearable market closely but want a quick crash-course on what’s available, that’s the place to look. Of course, you can always turn to us for the latest wearable news, too.
