HEAD in Multi-Year Watch Agreement
HEAD has signed a multi-year license agreement with Elysee Group, Germany, for the design, development and distribution of a line of sport watches available in August across the HEAD sales network, authorized watch retailers and online channels worldwide.
HEAD stands for sports, innovative design and technical excellence. A sports brand that is a global leader in sportswear and premium equipment with an impressive reputation for the extraordinary passion towards all sports activities.
The new sporty watch collection includes different watch series with their own character, named after venues of various Olympic Games. This resulted in outstanding watches for athletes at every level and equally sporty everyday companions. From chronographs and three-hand watches to smartwatches and wearables. Equipped with stainless steel, aluminium or carbon cases and solar movements.
The highlight of the new collection are the modern smartwatches: Los Angeles, Moscow and Seoul, which with various functions exactly meet the modern and healthy lifestyle of the target group. In conjunction with the specially developed HEAD Watches app, the versatile features of the smartwatch can be coupled with popular smartphones to track health checks and various sports.
“Although the smart phone generations are more and more refusing to wear watches, we believe that a watch is foremost a precious accessory for everybody and that to measure the time is something still needed. Not only for athletes, but up to just a fan of the brand, and therefore we are happy that we found with Elysee a partner who shares those values with us.
