Although there’s no shortage of fitness metrics devices but it seems that the Apple’s iWatch is also expected to monitor your health and fitness, and now it looks to have just as many senior medical executives behind it to track the technicality of the watch.
Apple’s new product category, while still not officially confirmed, has created jobs for at least half a dozen biomedical experts, according to Reuters.
Of course, it has reportedly picked off these medical researchers from other notable institutions, including Vital Connect, Masimo Corp, Sano Intelligence and O2 MedTech.
The point to note is that the new recruits’ work is said to be going into iWatch sensors that could keep account of your activity and vitals including steps, heart rate and blood pressure. Can these be more accurate and better then the previous products on health tracking is what the customer going to question google after it is ready to launch. Apple has always entered late in the market with an existing market product but always came up with a product that is much more better and trust worthy then the already existing ones. can this watch be another marking example of ultimate finished wearable product that you can rely on?
For all these answers we need to wait till march,2015 because that is what apple says will be the month when they will launch this.
Sleep tracking, while not a part of today’s report, has also sent an expert to Cupertino by way of Philips, according to previous iWatch rumors.
One part rising star, one part sneaker all-star
The newest medical guru who may have a gig at Apple is Divya Nag, founder of Stanford accelerator StartX Med and co-founder of another startup that is using pluripotent stem cells to treat heart disease. She’s two weeks into working on an unspecified healthcare product, according to Reuters, and her background lends further reason as to why Apple had to meet with the FDA.
Apple is also likely to be partnering with Nike, which recently announced that it won’t be making any more FuelBand hardware beyond the FuelBand SE.
The cozy relationship between Apple and Nike means we might see the swoosh logo at the press conference if not Nike’s proprietary Fuel score.
Apple’s deal making and hiring certainly seems to suggest that it’s mounting a wrist-worn competitor to Android Wear and the stylish Moto 360.
Citing various anonymous sources close to the company, 9to5Mac reports that Apple will begin an “extensive testing program” with its Apple Store employees in mid-February to prepare for the March launch.
Representatives from Apple Stores all across the country will journey to either Cupertino, California (where Apple is headquartered), or Austin, Texas, to get hands-on experience with the watch. This program will reportedly last from Feb. 9 to Feb. 16.
Since the Apple Watch was unveiled in September, the tech giant has been perfecting the technology by running the device’s battery through a ringer of tests, as well improving the charging mechanisms, per the report.
Love or hate the tech giant, it’s hard to deny that it makes a splash when it steps into a market. So for a large chunk of consumers, buying a wearable before the Apple Watch just isn’t an option. As part of a six-month study of the wearable market, PriceWaterhouseCoopers asked 1,000 consumers to share how they feel about the wearable market, and found that 59 percent of them were most excited by Apple’s entry into the market.
It is expected that
Apple Watch will have up to 19 hours of mixed-use battery life
An important thing to note is that Apple Watch requires you to have an iPhone. “If you’re going to be an Apple Watch person, that precludes you from being a smartphone owner on Windows, Android, or anything else.
Lets hope to find out the real watch by march this year.
