San Francisco – WEBWIRE

Olio Devices, the company behind the luxury connected timepiece Olio Model One, today announced its watches are available for sale at five physical Nordstrom stores across the United States. While select styles of the Model One have been available on Nordstrom’s website since late January, this announcement is representative of a larger expansion for Olio, as the brand looks to increase its presence in high-end brick and mortar retailers.

All 14 styles of the popular watch will be sold at the following Nordstrom locations: Valley Fair; South Coast Plaza; downtown San Francisco; downtown Seattle; and King of Prussia. Further, to compliment Nordstrom’s renowned customer service offering, the Olio team is training all Nordstrom employees in-person so they can effectively demonstrate its beauty and utility to consumers.  

The Model One started shipping in October 2015 as the first product from Olio Devices, a company that aims to blend intelligent connectivity, uncompromised quality, and enduring style into personalized premium watches that help users save time. Lauded by consumers and tech lovers alike, the first limited batches of Model One timepieces each sold out within a month of release. Olio also recently made its first foray into brick-and-mortar retail, releasing a batch of watches at Stephen Silver, a luxury jewelry store on Palo Alto’s famed Sand Hill Road. Today’s partnership announcement signals an even bigger step for the company.

“Nordstrom’s watch and jewelry department is one of the most renowned in the industry, and we’re thrilled to be a featured part of their collection,” said Steve Jacobs, Olio Devices’ CEO and co-founder. “Offering luxury products alongside highly trained employees, Nordstrom’s mission is to provide customers a simple and delightful shopping experience - one that perfectly aligns with our goal of combining form and function into beautiful, and useful, accessories that make life easier - making this the perfect partnership. This will also give consumers the chance to see the watch in person - feel the weight, play with the technology - an aspect of traditional shopping experience that’s often missing in the connected fashion space.”

In addition to these locations, the Model One will be available in five other U.S. Nordstrom stores later this month and the company has plans to add more throughout the year.

Olio Devices is also announcing partnerships with several smaller retailers across the country this year, including a recent launch at luxury Michigan watch and jewelry boutique Metals in Time.

Starting at $595, all styles of the Olio Model One are available for purchase at select retail partners. For more information, please visit
