We no longer have to wait for an official statement to come out of Apple for the iWatch because there have been enough rumors and Apple’s promotional strategy of making famous people put on its smartwatch has worked its charms now. After some medical and fashion-oriented people, Apple is targeting sports people (which seems a lot reasonable). The recent leaks state that Apple is taking the help of professional athletes to get involved in the development of the item we’ve all dubbed the iWatch.
Just like the iPhone 6, the smartwatch is also going to be loaded with sensors which means we are going to get readings on things like pulse rates, glucose levels and more. And so we don’t need an explanation regarding why these athletes would be good promotional figures for the iWatch.
Lakers’ Kobe Bryant and LA Kings’ right winger Dustin Brown, who are part of the NBA and NHL respectively, have rumored to be testing the iWatch at the moment. Bryant was spotted hanging around the Apple campus and the rumors say that this is when he met Apple design head honcho Sir Jonny Ive who thought that it wouldn’t be a bad idea to have Bryant as the early testers.
