    What brands and products do you feel successfully “speak to you” and effectively target your age group? Why? Which ones do not? What could they do better?
    The brand which speaks successfully to me is “Nike”

    Good! How about their target market based on age group? are there any differences in the smartwatches to suit different age segments?

    Nike’s target market includes a demographic of those aged 11-45 but put a greater emphasis on teens to cultivate long-term customers. Their psychographic segment includes active, fashionable individuals that consider physical activity as part of their lifestyle.

    Although with apparel and sports the market can be broad, for the most part Nike primarily targets consumers who are between the ages of 15-40. The company caters to both men and women athletes equally, and is placing an increasing focus on tweens and teens to build long-term brand loyalty.

    Nike target customers based on. lifestyle, personality, activities and interests. Specifically, Nike aims to active. individuals who take pleasure in sports, gym regularly, are athletes and. passionate with sports, which tend to be part of their life.

    Nike has focused its marketing efforts on the digital space in recent years. The company went high-tech with its push into digital sports and e-commerce. The company introduced the Nike+ running sensor in collaboration with Apple (AAPL).

    Nike marketing campaigns trade heavily on authenticity. They usually feature real athletes rather than actors and set out to tell their stories in a way that inspires other ordinary people to find success through sports. What really makes these ads stand out, though, is that they go beyond the sports themselves.
