On Sunday, it was reported (again) that Apple is working on its smart watch, a rumor that in the past also included Intel in the story . Bloomberg now reports that an inside source at the company claims that Apple employs no less than 100 employees who work for the development of hours. Such a large team indicates that Apple is more than just interested in testing the technology, but developing a real product, and as soon as possible.
According to the sources, the team works in the field of hardware and software, which includes development, marketing and management personnel. Foxcone, an Apple product manufacturer today, is also involved in the process and not only it, as there are several other companies that help Apple develop. Most of Apple’s ability to test is how to enable a curved screen that will be efficient in power consumption alongside large battery life, without compromising the design or physical size of the product.
The watch as previously described will allow access and connection to the iPhone or iPad in Bluetooth communication, but it can also operate independently. You can receive notifications, emails or notifications from social networks, run various apps and browse the surrounding maps.
From the development of a product like a watch, products can come out much more interesting. Some believe that Apple wants to take the clock one step further, and when the company manages to develop such a product and integrate it with a flexible screen, it is inevitable that we will see how technological products become part of everyday clothing. As a kind of “wearable computer” that is with us not only in a box with a small, mobile screen, but part of us physically.
Technology makers certainly cannot ignore the success of Pebble Watch, which has swept the network by storm and become one of Kickstarter’s most successful projects with an impressive achievement of over $ 10 million, though it should be remembered that its price was only $ 99. Google, as you know, is also working on a wearable computer, which is not Google Glass, which is hidden from view.
