apple iwatch

An Apple wristwatch is closer to reality than previously thought, reports coming out of Cupertino suggest, as it emerges that some 100 product designers are currently deployed on the project.

Intimations that a so-called iWatch is in Apple’s plans initially surfaced late last year. However, don’t that make you think that said device is likely to be little more than a floaty, vaporous concept right now.

According to sources familiar with goings-on at Infinite Loop, in fact, a huge team is already working on “a wristwatch-like device that may perform some of the tasks now handled by the iPhone and iPad”, suggesting that Apple is not only serious about a timepiece but that the putative gadget long ago left the tentative experimental stage.

Earlier reports suggest that Apple is already testing prototype watches across its California campus and that they feature a curved form factor and run the same iOS operating system as Apple tablets and smartphones.

The iWatch is also purported to sport a 1.5-inch display and heavily employ Apple’s much-maligned-but-actually-much-improved voice commands app, Siri. It's thought that the device will function as peripheral to be paired with users' smartphones and will not make or take calls.
