These slides use ideas from my (Jeff Funk) class to develop a business model for Samsung’s smart watch. Its smart watch works with Samsung’s mobile phone to enable users to more quickly and easily access information. In the future, its smart watch is expected to perform many of the functions that its mobile phones now do. These slides analyze athletes, the elderly, youth, and travelers as potential customers for Samsung’s smart watch. It describes several scenarios under which these users can obtain value from the watch now and in the future.
