More » The world's largest Swiss watchmaker will be bringing what it describes as a set of "useful features" focused on health and fitness tracking to its Touch line of digital watches next year.

Replica Omega mens Watches The announcement, reported by the Wall Street Journal , represents a huge about-face for the company -- whose brands include Omega, Breguet, Longines, Rado and Tissot.

Fake In January the company's Chief Executive Nick Hayek said that there was no point in making a watch that was going to "bomb" and that the best way to compete with the current generation of smartwatches was to offer consumers a beautifully made traditional watch instead.

Fake Swatch has more experience than most when it comes to smartwatches. Ten years ago it partnered with Microsoft on the first generation of smart wearables -- watches that tuned into FM radio signals to bring information like the weather and news headlines to the wearer's wrist. Massively ahead of its time, the watches were a failure and Swatch claims that it still has unsold inventory one decade on.

Replica Omega Watches In July, Venturebeat claimed that Swatch's reticence was due to the fact that it was secretly partnering with Apple on a smartwatch project, a report that the company denied within 24 hours of its publication.

Replica Omega mens Watches Although smartwatches are still in their infancy as a device category, the latest figures from Canalys, published on August 22, show that the combined wearables market of smartwatches and fitness bands has grown over 684 percent compared with the first six months of 2013 and that shipments of smartwatches alone are close to 2 million devices over the January to June 2014 period.

Of course, shipments are not the same as sales but there is no denying that the buzz around the devices is starting to grow.

And, if the rumors turn out to be true and Apple does launch a truly premium 'iWatch' before the end of 2014 this buzz is going to hit a crescendo.

Before the iPhone, the complicated smartphone was a business tool, not an object of consumer desire, and many are hoping that an Apple-branded smartwatch will legitimize what is currently seen as a gimmicky gadget and elevate it into something that appeals to the fashion conscious as well as the tech- or health-obsessed.

The Wall Street Journal suggests that this is the driving force behind Swatch's decision to embrace wearables.
