Unlike Samsung’s smart watch, Apple’s iWatch is predicted to be an all-purpose device rather than just a smartwatch. It can be used more for automating your home environment than as smartwatch.

Samsung’s smart watch is just for hooking up with your phone. But Apple’s iWatch which is yet to arrive on the scene has multiple uses. It is basically a personalized Man Friday of sorts. The iWatch performs anything and everything you can think of. From temperature control to number of calories burnt to weather updates. It is a virtual control panel from which you may manipulate everything in your life. 

Cantor Fitzgerald’s Brian White talked to Taiwanese and China Apple suppliers. He said in his research note, “As an Apple supplier, our contact offered insight into the “iWatch” and described this potential new device as much more than an extension of your iPhone but as a multi-purpose gateway in allowing consumers to control their home (i.e., heating/cooling, lights, audio, video, etc.).”

Therefore, not only does it synchronize with your iPhone but it is a means of tweaking the various functioning gadgets in your house. Thermostat settings, dimming and brightening of tube lights, music acoustics and television channels all come in this category. It will be quite a handy gadget alright.

Even safety issues can be resolved via the iWatch. From burglar alarms to smoke beepers, this singular portal wrapped around your wrist will work its magic in your home sweet home. Since Apple is all about lifestyle and making a dent in the universe, this smart and small gizmo will allow you to perform functions from the comfort of your couch. 

The personal computer was not a mobile device. Then came laptops and for the first time mobility became a reality. And with smart phones and now smart watches the level of freedom has expanded a hundred times. An iWatch is the ideal companion for anyone who wants to lie back and relax while doing the things he should be doing on the go.
