February 28th, 2013 by Tech Staff
Will the new arm candy be the Apple iWatch? Apple’s iWatch isn’t just a concept anymore. The U.S. Patent and Trademark just awarded the tech giant a patent for a portable media device/accessory. According to the patent, the device will communicate and transfer data with other mobile devices using GPS data. Mobile form factors are changing. Soon, hands free will be the mobile standard - wearable technology is were we are headed. So what do we know about the alleged Apple iWatch?
Apple iWatch Specs
Redefining the watch, the web is filled with images of different renditions of the Apple iWatch. But, reports say that the smart wristwatch will include a wrist mounted flexible screen (bendable glass), Bluetooth, GPS, and 1.5 inch display. The Bluetooth should include features to talk and listen for phone, video, music, etc. It should also include transmission of data from the smart phone.
Is the Apple iWatch "Stylish"? Wearable?
“Strides in design, battery technology, computing and connectivity are ushering in a new era of wearable computing. No longer bulky, and making one look like they have to wear a utility belt, a design such as Apple’s potential iWatch, the rumored Samsung smart watch or even Google’s (GOOG) Glass project are far more palatable.” (www.forbes.com)
