When it comes to providing information about Apple’s upcoming devices, John Gruber has a reasonably reliable reputation. He accurately leaked early details about the iPhone 5S and the more affordable iPhone 5C. Gruber mentioned recently that we could expect to see the Apple iWatch next month.
Apple may be planning to hold an official event on September 9 to announce its new flagship, the iPhone 6. The company may also introduce the smartwatch during the same opportunity. Like other smartwatch models, the iWatch could have built-in sensors to monitor blood glucose, blood pressure and heart rate. The data can be transmitted to Apple Health for analysis. It is reported that the app will debut on the upcoming iOS 8.
Apple is clearly not the pioneer in the smartwatch market, but it is expected to offer game changing features. Models released by LG and Samsung already capture the public’s attention.
On the other hand, Motorola will also draw plenty of attention with its Moto 360 that features a flat-tire display shape. Regardless of its late entry, the Apple iWatch is expected by analysts as a device to “watch for”. It could have Quantum Dots Display for longer operational time and Sapphire Glass protection to resist scratches.
