As per the news reported, iWatch referred to by Apple followers but not officially named by Apple will be mass produced from July onwards. The production will be a boost to Taiwan’s Quanta, whose work for Apple has been focused only on laptops and Ipods so far. This unnamed watch is in the trial production at Quanta. Sources have confirmed that Quanta will remain its main manufacturer accounting for at least 70 percent of final assembly.
The production of watches will be Quanta’s first foray into a niche product category that remains skeptical with regards to its success and ability to generate profits. According to sources, Apple expects to ship 50 million units within the first year.
Moving on to the looks, it seems Apple iWatch will contain a rectangular touch display which can be charged wirelessly. The touch display will be decently sized at 2.5 inches when measured diagonally. With a slight protrusion from its band, the watch will offer an arch shaped view.
Likely to be integrated with Apple’s new Health app and HealthKit develper’s tool kit, the watch will also contain a sensor to the monitor the wearer’s pulse. This again is estimated since the name of Heptagon, a Singapore based supplier has been mentioned in the supplier’s list.
Will the iWatch redefine the way people use consumer electronics to interact with the healthcare industry? Let’s wait and watch for the official launch of iWatch !!
