In recent weeks I spoke several times with two sources in
Cupertino pertaining to future products to be released by Apple
later this year for the holiday season in the U.S. and Europe.
Judging on the basis of the information revealed in these
conversations, Apple has been working for a long time on a project
that appears to be in its final stages of touch-ups.
What became clear is that the much anticipated Apple smart watch
is not so much a watch as it is a smart band. It would appear that
just as Apple has done with the iPhone and iPad, here too the
technology giant plans to create a focal point around which a new
ecosystem will evolve. To be more specific, Apple is looking to
launch a smart band towards the end of this year whose collection
of sensors will be able to be used not only to monitor the
activity of the wearer, but also to operate other devices as a
Filed for future claim chowder.
