Apple iWatch – What will it be like?

Nonstop gossip surrounds Apple’s genius Smart watch – the iWatch (as they have filed for the trademark protection of this name in Japan, Russia, Mexico and Taiwan, according to various reports) is gaining momentum day by day since this would be Apple’s first new venture after Steve Jobs’ death and its very first step in the wearable technology sector, like that of the Google Glass by Google. According to Bloomberg, Apple has a team of around 100 designers working on “a wristwatch-like device that may perform some of the tasks now handled by the iPhone and iPad”. That information is said to be based on conversations with two people familiar with the company’s plans.

As there are no solid announcements yet from Apple’s side regarding this device, it is still expected that this wearable gadget would allow the users to access their iPhone or iPad without troubling themselves to take them out of the pocket. According to NYT’s Nick Bilton and others familiar with the company’s explorations, “Apple is experimenting with wristwatch-like devices made of curved glass”. The watch may have Siri – the always reliable Apple’s Smart Digital Assistant, maps and health monitoring (in broader aspects) as it would work with the iOS platform.

Sony was the first to start this movement with its SmartWatch and has also announced thelaunch of its newer versioned SmartWatch 2.
