Apple are expected to launch their first wearable device this year, the Apple iWatch, we may see the device at Apple’s iPhone 6 event next week, or we may have to wait until October to see the iWatch.
According to a recent report by Nick Bilton from the New York Times, Apple’s Jony Ive is impressed with the new iWatch, and he thinks it could be some competition for the Swiss Watchmakers.
According to a designer who works at Apple, Jonathan Ive, Apple’s design chief, in bragging about how cool he thought the iWatch was shaping up to be, gleefully said Switzerland is in trouble — though he chose a much bolder term for “trouble” to express how he thought the watchmaking nation might be in a tough predicament when Apple’s watch comes out.
The Swiss Watchmakers pretty much have the watch market sewn up, Apple could be perfectly capable of disrupting the watch market, as it has done in the past with other devices, like the iPod, iPhone and the iPad.
We have seen a number of new smart watches launch recently, like the Samsung Gear S, the LG G Watch R, and the Moto 360 is also expected to launch soon, we are looking forward to seeing what the new Apple iWatch is like.
