Apple iWatch with Curved Glass Rumored

It is not a new rumor that Apple is supposed to work on an iWatch. Today though the rumor is back in full force getting covered by the New York Times. According to the report Apple engineers are experimenting with devices made with curved glass that run iOS.

I am not ueber excited about the new smart watch trend. I was a fan back when the first wave of Bluetooth watches came out in Japan about 15 years ago. Now with age comes the preference to wear the classic Steve McQueen Tag Heuer Monaco and not a shiny curved glass smart watch.

The New York Times speculates that Apple is using Corning's new bendable Willow Glass for the iWatch design. Besides this there is nothing concrete in the lengthy report. It is clear that wearable technology is now on a fast rise. Apple has dabbled in this segment with the Nike partnership, but clearly there is room for more wearable products from Apple. If it will include a smart watch remains to be seen.

Taiwanese publication UDN notes that TPK -- thought to be making touch modules for the iWatch -- has pushed back a predicted third-quarter profit surge into the next quarter. Since suppliers often experience such surges in association with Apple orders, it could mean that iWatch production has suffered setbacks.
