Q3/Q4 Digital, Print Opps: Fossil launching wearables for Holiday 2016


Subject: digital, print

Company: Winmo), a Richardson, Texas-based clothing and accessory maker known for its watches.

Opportunity: We told you in November about Fossil’s plans to increase marketing behind wearable technology (more here). Now, the company is set to launch wearables for eight of its brands: Chaps, Diesel, Emporio Armani, Fossil, Kate Spade New York, Michael Kors, Misfit and Skagen. These wearables will be available for Holiday 2016 (Q4) and will include display and non-display watches and trackers. The launch will include more than  100 products and follows Fossil’s acquisition of Misfit last fall. 

To support these products, Fossil Group will launch branded apps across all brands, three product categories and two operating systems. The focus will be on maintaining a “fashion-first” focus, while providing consumers with the wearable products they desire. Fossil Group’s chief strategy and digital officer, Greg McKelvey, said: “One of the distinct advantages of a fashion company over traditional consumer electronics manufacturers is our product cycle. We demonstrate remarkable speed to market, from development to launch, in order to meet the retail industry’s seasonal new product deadlines.”

Sellers – especially those with a fashion or lifestyle focus, should reach out for digital and print dollars surrounding the launches. Focus particularly on digital and social branding/direct response dollars given Fossil's higher investments in those areas lately (research R/GA
