Apple’s “iWatch” Wrist-Device Coming to Stores in Late 2014

According to analysts, the wearable digital device by Apple termed the “iWatch” will be very useful indeed. But it is not expected to enter the electronics market soon. More than a year remains before the full-fledged version comes out. Till then consumers are waiting with bated breath for the high-tech heavenly contraption to arrive on the scene. Currently Apple lacks the necessary components for creating an iWatch. Therefore manufacturing of this object of desire will be delayed till the year 2014.

Moreover, Apple is probably going to opt for a wrist-device instead of glasses as reported in 9to5Mac. At least, it will consider the iWatch before it comes out with the glasses. Google Glass has already set the world on fire with its wearable technology in the form of a pair of spectacles with a whole computer fitted right in the viewing space. Apple too wants to do something for the first time. Its purchase of certain parts has been seen as a move towards making an iWatch some time in the near future.

Among some of the special features of the wrist watch are the phone call-receiving capability and message service. Social network reminders and missives too count in the set of resources. Finally there are several modules that have to do with health-related statistics. Vital signs may be monitored via this device. The usage of iPod’s Touch-based Nanotechnology will get center stage in the iWatch. A 1.5 inch OLED display screen is to feature in the making of the wrist-wrap.

Furthermore, full integration with other Apple accessories will ensure better functioning. Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook is already keenly interested in this gorgeous gadget yet he says that it will take some getting used to.  How the consumer market will respond to the innovation is worthy of surmise. While the hypothetical reaction is very positive indeed, how the actual product will fare is a question that will be decided by fate.

So for now at least Apple seems to be tinkering with its tools in an effort to produce the iWatch. There are rumors in the air regarding opposing pressures from Google, Microsoft and Samsung which want to come up with better products for the sheer sake of one-upmanship.  One thing which is a dead cert is the application of biometrics in the iWatch. And while it may have the word “watch” in it, it is far more than a watch. It is a world waiting to be explored.
