Wearable Company Misfit Goes Baselworld 2016

The Baselworld 2016 is not just about Swiss luxury watches anymore. The wearable companies invade the traditional Swiss trade show.

The Fossil Group owns a long list of brands and can present them in its own little Baselworld. Fossil Group brands include besides Fossil, Skagen many fashion watch brands like Marc Jacobs, Emporio Armani, Relic, Karl Lagerfeld and Michael Kors.

Misfit got acquired by the Fossil Group, in November of 2015 to gain access to Fossil Group’s world-class design teams and global expertise in sales, marketing, and distribution. Fossil Group brands feature an extensive line of men’s and women’s fashion watches, jewelry, handbags, small leather goods and accessories that are found in department stores, specialty retail stores and specialty watch and jewelry stores in the U.S. and approximately 150 countries.
