The iCompanion wearable: there is no iWatch

The iCompanion wearable: there is no iWatch

If you're thinking that today's big announcement from "unnamed sources familiar with the matter" surrounding the so-called "iWatch" is simply an expansion of what we've seen in the past with the iPods of old, you're sorely mistaken. Instead the only possible course of action Apple will be considering is one in which they open up another new category of device. If Apple cannot create what I'm about describe as the "iCompanion", their supposed "100 product designers working on a wristwatch-like device" won't deliver a market-ready device.

Apple’s stock drops to a new low

Apple’s stock drops to a new low

Shareholders were a bit upset when Apple's stocks dropped all the way down to $443.77 a few days ago.

Shareholders were worried because $443.77 is a 35% drop from the $702.10 stock price peak that Apple had back in September.

Others are already predicting that they’ll buy one and wear it each day, and before long, just about everyone else will, too. The iWatch has somehow joined the pantheon of Apple greats, like the iPod and iPhone, before it’s even launched.

A Siri iWatch could dominate wearables

A Siri iWatch could dominate wearables

Oh, the irony: tech manufacturers by the dozen attempting to dissuade you from pulling an iPhone from your pocket, and it might be Apple that actually manages it. That's not to say the Cupertino giant - or the rumored "iWatch" - is aiming to replace the iPhone, only leave it snug in your jacket or purse more of the time by shunting glanceable functionality to your wrist. It's a strategy we've seen several other manufacturers (most notably Pebble, currently glowing rosily from its multi-million Kickstarter success) try, but there are some very good reasons why Apple could be the firm to take the smartwatch mass-market.

iWatch: Time for a New iPod

iWatch: Time for a New iPod

Just in case you're unhappy with how large you MASSIVE iPod nano is, say hello to the iWatch. While this design isn't actually in production at this time, it's an extremely neat concept, featuring 10 GB of music storage and Bluetooth capabilities so users can listen to their music without being physically attatched to their arms (which would look really weird). While I would prefer an adjustable band for those of us with larger-than-normal wrists, you have to admit that the solid white bezel/band looks extremely slick and stylish, as we would expect of an Apple product. Let's hope Apple notices Peter Burns' design so that we may one day enjoy the pleasures of wrist-mounted audio.
