Well, the cat’s out of the bag, courtesy of The Wall Street Journal. It is my favorite “go-to” resource for all things Apple. Because of their strong association with Apple Inc., their information is extremely reliable.
It looks like we will have a spiffy IWatch for sale in late Fall – just in time for gift-giving during the Christmas season. And, coincidentally, I have a birthday around the same time. (Hint! Hint!)
The IWatch is going to be a welcoming gadget in my life. I am tired of carrying around my phone when I am out for a walk and often wished I could just strap it to my wrist. Hands-free is the way to go and it is more efficient.
Here is the WSJ scoop:
“Apple Inc. is planning multiple versions of a smartwatch likely to be launched in the fall, people familiar with the matter said, as the company tries to counter wearable devices from Google Inc., Samsung Electronics Co. and others.
The new wrist device from Apple will incorporate more than 10 sensors including ones to track health and fitness, these people said. Apple aims to address an overarching criticism of existing smartwatches that they don’t provide functions significantly different from that of a smartphone, said a person familiar with the matter.”
The IWatch will also be a health and fitness tracker so now we can stay really obsessed with our health if that strikes your fancy. As a cardiac patient, I know I will value this commodity in the IWatch.
