Development Still Under Way For The iWatch

Reports by Apple Balla have pointed to an October release of the long awaited iWatch, but new hires might suggest that they aren’t as near completion as many people might have thought. Following the reports that Apple brought in an executive from TAG Heuer, the Swiss watch maker, it has now been revealed that they have hired two engineers from Nike, who previously worked on the FuelBand.

That FuelBand is something that Apple is hoping to overshadow with their own iWatch. The two men they have hired know exactly how to do that, since they have worked on not only the original design of the FuelBand, but the technology behind the sensors that is uses. Those sensors are going to be vital to the iWatch, since there are incredibly ambitious plans for health tracking that includes not only things like pulse rate, but blood pressure and even blood glucose levels.

It is interesting that they are still hiring employees so close to the date that is expected to be unveiled. The originally reported October release date could be off if they are still not happy with the design, although they could simply be working on the next model already. Apple releases products when they want and without warning, so we will have to wait and stay tuned for the official word from the company. With iOS 8 also coming out later this year, it will be an important release since it will integrate with HomeKit and other features that Apple has in the works.

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.
