iWatch Concept by Zumtobei Design
The most awaited company jumping into the wearable tech race will be Apple with its plans to launch the iWatch. If a news report from Reuters is correct, Apple’s iWatch could launch in October.
The device is expected to carry a curved OLED 2.5 inch touch screen that is to be supplied by LG with wireless charging capabilities. The device is rumored to be running the iOS 8, which is now available for developers in its beta stage. The operating system is already making waves in the industry for its integration capabilities between other iOS systems, including the Mac.
As far as all Apple products are concerned, the amount of features packed into its devices have always been astounding. Apple always wins in terms of design, look and quality. All Apple devices have the premium look and feel that win over customers by the millions. Apart from focusing on these, the iWatch will concentrate on health tracking while, sleep data, blood sugar and calorie counter are expected as standard features. The iWatch can also display incoming messages without having to pull the phone out.
The new health app that Apple revealed recently will be the one running the watch. This has been developed in hand with Nike. This comes at a time when Nike shut down its fuelband division. Tim Cook, CEO of Apple unveiled the health app, which will collect health data based on third party apps installed in the phones. Apple expects to sell ten to fifteen million pieces of the iWatch by this year.
