Apple smartwatch to come this Fall [Daily Tribune (Bahrain)]
(Daily Tribune (Bahrain) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Apple is likely to launch a computerised wristwatch this fall that includes more than 10 sensors to take health measurements and other data, according to a published report.
The Wall Street Journal also said yesterday that Apple Inc. is planning multiple screen sizes for the device, which some people have dubbed the iWatch.
Samsung, Sony, Qualcomm and others have already released smartwatches, but the gadgets have mostly functioned as companions to smartphones, offering email notifications, clock functions and the like. Samsung's Gear 2 line, released this year, added fitness-related apps and has a heart rate sensor.
There's been longstanding speculation that Apple has been working on a smartwatch. The main question has been when it would come out.
Apple intensified speculation this month when it said the upcoming version of its mobile operating system, iOS 8, will include tools for managing health data. The software is expected in September, along with new iPhones.
