Apple iwatch

 

Not satisfied with just smartphones, MP3 players, and computers anymore, the rumor mill has now tacked on “smartwatch” to the list of potential hot items that Apple will develop and manufacture. Dubbed “the iWatch,” chatter about Apple producing this sort of wearable tech is timely, considering that smartwatches seem to be on the mind of a number of other companiesas well.

From bendable glass to an OLED screen, we gather all the dish on Apple’s iWatch. Please note that we’ll continue to update this roundup periodically and feel free to let us know if we missed any rumors ourselves.

Apple board member offers crumb-sized insight into the matter.
At a meeting held by software company Intuit, Bill Campbell, who is an Apple board member and friend of the late Steve Jobs, hinted that Apple may have its eyes on wearable tech. Not going into specifics, he said that when it comes to future Apple devices, customers should expect “a lot of things going on with the application of technology to really intimate things.” According toBloomberg, Campbell specifically referred to glasses and watches as becoming just as “intimate as the cell phone was.”

ETA: By the end of this year.
Piling on to its February rumor, the same people who spoke to Bloomberg about Apple gathering a 100-person team for the iWatch also said that we can expect to see the final product by the end of 2013. Additional speculated features include checking location and map coordinates, as well as a pedometer.

We got ourselves a patent application!
Though it dates back to August 2011, a patent filed from Apple under the title “Bi-Stable Spring With Flexible Display” was discovered by AppleInsider. The patent describes a bendable touch-screen that can be rendered into a phone or worn on — and here’s where it gets juicy– the wrist. And while the document doesn’t specifically point out it will be used for a watch, it does state that the glass can carry out tasks like ordering a playlist or “reviewing a list of recent phone calls.”

How many people does it take to make an iWatch? A hundred, apparently.
According to Bloomberg, Apple is rounding up a team of 100 employees to develop its smartwatch. Citing people who are “familiar with the company,” two important members of this team include James Foster, Apple’s senior director of engineering, and program manager Achim Pantfoerder, who has 13 Apple patents under his belt.

It may feature curved glass.
The all-right-that’s-at-least-more-legitimate-when-it-comes-to-tech-rumors New York Times reported that Apple is tinkering around with bendable glassin order to develop its iWatch. Fanning the flames of this rumor is the fact that earlier in the year, Corning Glass Technologies, which is featured in the iPhone, announced that it has created flexible Willow glass.

And so the rumors begin…
Citing a Chinese blog site called Tech163.com,Business Insider reports that Apple is working with Intel to create an iOS-toting watch. In addition to Bluetooth capabilities, the device will have a 1.5-inch OLED screen. So, why does this rumor hold more water than all the other fluff that comes out of the tech mill? Perhaps it’s because in 2011, Apple released the iPod Nano, which can be fashioned into a watch, and the idea of an iWatch isn’t that far-fetched.
