iWatch Held Back by FDA Certification

If we are going to trust the Chinese media then the developmental stage of the iWatch has already been completed. But don’t get too excited because the bad news is that the Apple smartwatch is being held back from the manufacturing process because it appears that this wearable needs to clear a certification process through the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration).

As we have been hearing from all the previous rumors, the iWatch is going to be fully equipped with different sensors including heart rate, blood pressure and blood glucose sensors and to top it all up, the recent reports are suggesting that Apple has even included a sweat analysis sensor for the iWatch. At the moment Apple is busy clearing the certification process which we are sure is going to take a long time.

For all those wondering why the FDA would want to interfere in a tech device such as this, let’s recall the new additions to the iOS 8 including the HealthKit application that has been developed in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic. If this app is to transmit health-related information and relate it with the medical records systems of many health institutions in the US (Mayo Clinic, Stanford Hospital & Clinics, Penn Medicine, Johns Hopkins Medicine, and the Cleveland Clinic have been disclosed as partners at WWDC), then it sure needs the FDA certification.

About the Geek Mind

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.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. 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.
