Greenville, SC (from 2014 New Age Electronics Dealer Summit) – October 2, 2014 – New Age Electronics, a leading distributor of consumer electronics and gaming products and services and a division of SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), announced that it has expanded its Emerging Technology Strategy with the signing of multiple new vendor lines specializing in categories including smartwatches, fitness trackers, home health monitoring, home automation and app-enabled technology.

Earlier this year, New Age Electronics launched its Emerging Technology Strategy to support this wave of innovation, a multipronged approach supported by a dedicated team of seasoned product management and sales veterans that specifically focuses on emerging technology categories and advises retailers on the best products to bring to stores and online, while serving as a launch pad for cutting-edge vendors who represent key emerging technology categories.
New Age Electronics continues to expand its emerging technology portfolio by adding the following new vendor lines spanning key emerging categories:
Wearable Devices: ConnecteDevice Ltd., HealBe, MyKronoz, Now Computing, Omate, Wellograph
Home Automation: AwoX, iControl, Lumen Bulb, Smarthome Ventures

"By building a selective, best-in-class portfolio in this space, New Age Electronics is able to supply our retailers with a robust offering, while providing our vendors with highly individualized attention as they take a deep-dive into Retail."
