While many diehard Apple fans are already camping outside of stores to get their hands on the soon to be announced iPhone 6, alleged leaks have emerged on Reddit of Apple’s hotly anticipated first wearable tech.
Dubbed the “iWatch” by fans, it is said to have a flexible multi-touch screen, a day long battery life, and will be waterproof for up to 20 metres. “Mass production is scheduled to start in January. This is the most complex and expensive product to manufacture to date,” stated the post.
The iWatch has captured the attention of fitness fanatics with its HealthKit Application. This App allows for its users to monitor their steps, calories burned, blood sugar levels, cholesterol, vitals and even their sleep patterns. With a stored database, the App allows for users to monitor their progress over the day, week, month or year.
“Having a company like Apple educating everyone on why this stuff matters can help the whole category become mainstream faster,” said Jason Jacobs, creator of similar health tracking App, RunKeeper.
However, the App has not been without its privacy concerns, especially in light of the recent celebrity nude leaks scandal. With many worried about the security of their personal health data, Apple have stated that there will not be any forceful integration in its social sharing function.
Full details of the product are to be revealed tomorrow during Apple’s press conference.
