Make Calls On Your Wrist! We’re Getting A Glimpse Of The Apple iWatch
Flexing its innovative genius, Apple has — somehow, someway — condensed the finesse of the beloved iPhone into a sleek wristwatch! The name of this new incredible concept, according to Entrepreneur, is called the iWatch.
Apple’s new, still-speculative wearable technology infuses Nike FuelBand‘s design and a minimalist version of Apple’s iOs 7 interface into a sleek, smart wristwatch. Users can access a few of their favorite apps and even make calls on iWatch with just a swipe of the fingertip.
So who’s the mastermind behind this concept? At first, a mock-up design of the Apple iWatch was released by Thomas Bogner back in October.
But a San Francisco-based tech interface designer, Todd Hamilton, pushed Bogner to the side and created a better, more efficient interface:
“[Bogner’s iWatch] was an impressive concept that got a lot of people excited including myself. However, it had a major flaw: the orientation of the interface made it impossible to use,” Hamilton said on his blog. “It needed to feel natural on the wrist and look like something Apple would actually produce.”
So basically, instead of being horizontal like Bogner’s, Hamilton suggested the iWatch be vertical. This version also “updates the operating system in order to give viewers a better vision of what the operation of the device might really look like,” according to Mashable.
The iWatch is rumored to rival Samsung’s Galaxy Gear Watch.
While Apple is keeping the iWatch hush-hush, there’s talk that the tech giant will aim to make the smartwatch health-focused. Apple has hired biomedical experts — like Nancy Dougherty — who are developing technological medical sensors, Business Insider reports.
