So we have been hearing rumours of an Apple ‘ ‘ project for some time now. Recently, Samsung also weighed in, stating they had a ‘smart’ watch in development. Rumours have now been reported that Google will also be developing a product in this vein.
This may well prove just to be another urban myth however with the launch of Google Glass it seems ‘wearable’ tech is an emerging area; whether it’s something consumers actually want or not. Will Apple and others be able to convince people they need a watch if they don’t currently wear one? Many people use their phones as time-keepers.
There are already some ‘smart’ watches available that will work with some functions of iOS devices (i.e. notifications) such as the Pebble; which was initially produced using a Kickstarter campaign and also supports Android.
