Incorporating powerful technologies into something small enough to wear on the wrist presented some very big design challenges. Which led to even bigger creative solutions. Apple Watch combines a series of remarkable feats of engineering into a singular, entirely new experience. One that blurs the boundaries between the physical object and the software that powers it.

Most people are well-aware of the fact that most Apple devices come with a hefty price tag. This is why it’s surprising that there are actually rumors going around that the upcoming Apple iWatch might be priced cheaper than expected. This speculation is grounded on the prediction that health insurers might be subsidizing the cost of this device.
This is what Timothy Arcuri of Cowen & Co. said: “we continue to believe it is possible the product (iWatch) is backstopped by some sort of insurance subsidization model similar to the carrier subsidization model for the iPhone.” He added, “We continue to feel this product will differentiate itself with existing wearable products primarily from a health perspective with a number of key innovations including noninvasive blood cell count and blood pressure and other more pedestrian features like heart rate.”
Many sources have also claimed that the iWatch will be a fitness-oriented device.
As for the release date, the device might hit the markets by September. Its speculated price is around $250.
Apple recently discussed with The New York Times about the future of its devices. One of the innovations that it is looking forward to is a solar charging smartwatch.
Sources say that the company is looking into ways of creating a smartwatch screen that has solar charging capabilities. Whenever the device is exposed to sunlight, the battery would automatically be charged.
Also, the report reiterated that this smartwatch will also be featuring a curved glass screen. There’s a possibility that it will make use of wireless charging as well.
At the moment, these reports are still unverified. However, it’s not a crime to hope.
Netizens have been keeping a close eye on Apple’s new recruits for its iWatch project. It seems that the company’s newest member is an expert in the field of sleep research. Mr. Roy J.E.M Raymann hailed from Philips Research. He has quite the experience in terms of wearables. He excels especially in sleep research. This is further proven by the many sleep related projects he had during his stint with Philips. These projects aimed to provide the wearer with a good night’s sleep.
Though an attempt has been done by others, especially those behind fitness trackers, it seems there still isn’t a sleep tracking device that’s worth noting. Apple may be on to something here.
It’s safe to say that Apple is taking its iWatch project seriously. Hopefully, we’ll be able to know more as it takes shape.
There is a lot of speculation going around regarding the Apple iWatch. This doesn’t come as a surprise since many have been eyeing it since talk about the device began to spread.
One of the heavily debated topics about the iWatch is its exact display size. Earlier reports concluded that it will be sporting a curved glass design. However, it seems that there is still a possibility that this won’t be the case. Accordingly, Apple is working on two prototypes at the moment. Both of which are equipped with different sized screens. Some rumors claim that Ben Shaffer has a hand on the iWatch’s design. He was part of the team behind the Nike Fuelband, hence, some think that the iWatch may be catering to the fitness community.
Other contrasting reports state that Apple is actually aiming for a flexible OLED display
Hopefully, everyone’s questions regarding the Apple iWatch will be answered soon.
2013 served as an introductory year for the smartwatch market. Big tech companies have been joining the race since then. Now that it’s 2014, smartwatch enthusiasts are looking forward to the newest releases, especially Apple’s highly anticipated iWatch.
Though it’s sad to share this bit of information, it seems that some Apple insiders have claimed that the release date for the smartwatch might be pushed back. Accordingly, some manufacturing issues are to blame. It seems that this problem has rendered some of devices unfit for use. Apparently, the manufacturers encountered some hurdles while applying surface treatments to the watch chassis’ metal injecting molding.
This may put a damper on your mood, but do not fret. Apple has faced such issues in the past. The company will surely be able to bounce back. For now, you can rest assured that the iWatch will be released by the end of the year, maybe around the same time as the iPhone 6.
