Apple registers for iWatch!
Apple applies for ‘iWatch’ trademark in Japan!!
Let’s rewind a bit. We all love James Bond his cool gadgets. In the movie ” For your eyes only, Bond had a Seiko Wristwatch which recieved digital message read-out and contained a 2-way radio/transmitter for voice communications. Smartwatches like Sony Smartwatch, Pebble E-Paper watch can do that and much, much more. And now a company which is known for it’s innovations has jumped into creating it’s own masterpiece.
Reports are coming, that tech giant Apple have registered for the trademark of iWatch in Japan. The filing was made public last week by Bloomberg. Apple apparently is seeking a protection for the name which is categorized as “being for products including a handheld computer or watch device”. Just last week, we talked about another smartwatch “sony smartwatch 2”.
Wearable technologies like Google Glasses, Sony Smartwatch haven’t been able to create huge waves so far. Normal watches itself has lost their existence these days. When asked for time, the person next to you will most probably look at his/her cell phone to tell you time.
Tim cook, CEO of Apple Inc. at All Things Digital’s annual conference himself stated that
There’s nothing that’s going to convince a kid who has never worn glasses or a band or a watch or whatever to wear one. Or at least I haven’t seen it. So I think there’s lots of things to solve in this space, but it’s an area where it’s ripe for exploration, it’s ripe for us all getting excited about. I think there will be tons of companies playing in this.
A couple of years ago, wearable technologies were a tech-enthusiasts’ dream, and now that they are emerging one after another, it could be the next “THE” thing.
Samsung has already moved miles ahead in the smartphones and tablets creation if compared to apple. Apple also hasn’t been able give birth new innovations, it was previously famous for. According to rumors, apple has assigned a team of 100 of their best designers & developers who were behind the creation of previous iPhones and iPads.
If apple indeed comes up with “iWatch”, it would help to gain it’s lost ground from likes of Samsung, who have been very aggressive and have plans to create their own Smartwatch, and Microsoft is also brain storming on this area. All of these smartwatch will possibly have the capability to change the way we look at time from our watches. According to me, wearable technologies have still a long way to go, and it’s more of a techie’s dream than a must have accessory.
