Apple Inc. is seeking to get an ‘iWatch’ trademark in Japan. 100 employees of the company are working on this handheld or wrist computer device that will feature biometrics and tracking sensors for health-related data. It can do many tasks of iPhone and iPad.
Apple Inc. wants to get an ‘iWatch’ trademark in Japan. Apple has actually filed an application on June 3 in Japan Patent Office for the device which was made public on June 27th. It is being in rumors from many months that Apple is working on a wristwatch device. But Bloomberg reports today that Apple seeks to register trademark for a product categorized as handheld computer or watch device. Apple's Tokyo spokesman Takashi Takebayashi gives no comments on it.
Sony's SmartWatch is in markets from one year. Sony has also released a second version of its watch device called SmartWatch 2 recently. While Apple's rival Samsung has also announced back in March that the company intends to launch its own wristwatch device. Tim Cook knows that its company also needs such device to compete with rivals especially Samsung. Also there is no new product announced since October and its shares go down 25% this year. But now ‘iWatch’ Trademark application filed in Japan shows that Apple will release wireless wrist device following iPhone and iPad. But earlier reports shows that it will come in late 2014.
