What’s becoming more clear about Apple’s so-called iWatch, is that it’s not about the watch at all. It’s all about biometric sensors. WSJ:
The new wrist device from Apple will incorporate more than 10 sensors including ones to track health and fitness, these people said. Apple aims to address an overarching criticism of existing smartwatches that they don’t provide functions significantly different from that of a smartphone, said a person familiar with the matter.
The smartwatch will likely come in multiple screen sizes, said one person familiar with the matter. Another person at a component supplier said shipments of the smartwatches are estimated to total between 10 million and 15 million units by the end of this year.
The exact specifications of Apple’s smartwatch are still being finalized before mass production starts, said people familiar with the matter.
Yes, The Wall Street Journal paid someone to write that drivel. Italics are mine. No sources, and no details on what the watch laden with biometric sensors will actually do.
