The introduction of the Apple watch in this tier has the potential to greatly unsettle the watch market and change the playing field. Many Fashion watch companies are considering broadening their product lines, but what does that mean? What features should they offer? Do they need to abandon their traditional watch designs? Can the technology product lifespan match that of a classic watch?
