Apple Will Enter the Wearables Market, Launching its Smartwatch in October

We just can't get enough of wearables rumours. Apple's Developers Conference finished a few days ago, and some expectations were met, while some weren't. Although the iWatch was rumoured, but not unveiled at this year's Conference, Apple did drop the news of a smartwatch launch in October. Talk about a fresh breeze of wonderful news, eh?

 

According to Asian Nikkei, Apple will dive into the emerging market of wearable devices, designed to monitor users' health. From October on, Apple hopes to sell 3-5 million smartwatches per month. Following the smartwatch success of Samsung, Google, and Motorola, it was about time Apple got into the groove!

 

No details on the device's specs have been confirmed yet, but the new wearable is said to run iOS 8. The smartwatch will focus on collecting biometric data, just like the Healthbook app will do on the iPhone. Apple's partners in this direction would be high-profile hospitals, such as the Minnesota-based Mayo Clinic and Ohio-based Cleveland Clinic, which will develop ways to analyze the data received from the users, and apply the information to appropriate health management.

Nike is also said to be a partner and to have its services integrated into the device. The smartwatch is said to feature an OLED display, which will provide a brighter screen and use less power. The device will allow users to read text messages sent by smartphones.

 

We are looking forward to Apple's new wearable device. As Apple CEO Tim Cook once promised, 2014 will bring "new product categories."
