We have been waiting for more information about the iWatch. It is one of the most highly anticipated products, but we know very little about it from official sources. Apple Balla reports that, the iWatch is known to have a lot of different health features, including their new app that focuses on tracking a large number of different health aspects, bringing Apple into FitBit’s market in a way that might allow them to take it over.
The new rumors pertain to the kind of screen that the iWatch will be using. A plant in Taiwan that produces screens is said to be producing one for a new 4.8 inch iPhone that might be coming out soon, but they are also said to be producing a special screen for the iWatch.
The screen is expected to be flexible, making a contoured fit possible that will go with the natural curve of the wrist, making it more comfortable than a traditional screen and fit more with the design of products like the FitBit. The China Times has reported the story and, while they don’t have a perfect track record for producing rumors, it does seem like something that is possible for Apple, and even something that would be expected. Using the high tech sensors that the iWatch will be using, a unique design isn’t out of the ordinary.
We’ll have to wait on official word to confirm the information, but it is nonetheless an exciting possibility when it comes to a product that is sure to be as popular as anything Apple has released since the iPhone.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
