Apple iWatch rumours received a boost as Bloomberg reported the California firm has 100 product designers working on the development of the wristwatch-like device. The iWatch is reported to manage a few tasks of the iPad and the iPhone, though Apple is yet to confirm the numerous rumours circulating in the market.
With the addition of 100 designers, experts suggest that the Apple iWatch might be out of the experimental phase and gearing up for the creation of the final device. The team developing the iWatch is reported to include managers, members of the marketing group, and software and hardware engineers who previously worked on the iPhone and iPad.
The notion of wearable computers has attracted technological firms since a long time and with the iWatch, Apple might take the lead. Bloomberg reported that the iPhone manufacturing company has made attempts in the past to create wearable computers, but the efforts did not produce the desired results.
Apple iWatch is rumoured to feature a 01.mm thick bendable glass screen called Willow Glass from Corning, the manufacturer of Gorilla Glass. The smart watch is also speculated to include Siri and maps to aid the users. Wearable technology is on the rise as other firms are also experimenting with the idea of its existence.
Google has been developing eyeglass- embedded computers and is reportedly planning to introduce them in 2014. As the Apple iWatch rumours grow, recent speculations have brought forward Samsung’s interest in developing a watch-like device. Rumours suggest that Samsung might launch the Galaxy watch on March 15.
