iWatch Could Include Sleep Tech

Posted on the 06 February 2014 by Anna Peterson

According to recent rumors, Apple has hired a sleep tracking specialist to work on its much awaited piece of wearable tech, the iWatch.

Apple's piece of wearable tech - iWatch.

The iWatch will cost somewhere between 110 EUR and 170 EUR.

Roy J.E.M Raymann is an ex-Philips Research senior scientist who has been involved in sleep monitoring for years. Raymann’s known for his non-clinical sleep research facility and his work on wearable and miniaturized sensors. Apple has refused to comment on the rumors, but given his background, Raymann definitely seems like an obvious choice for incorporating sleep technology into the Apple’s iWatch.

With this information in mind, we can say that the iWatch could be a 24/7 wearable instead of just another expensive piece of jewelry.

Latest reports suggest that the iWatch will also focus strongly on health. This is backed by the fact that Apple’s been hiring health experts since last summer. IOS 8 is said to feature Healthbook, a new health and fitness app that will be able to track things like the number of burned calories, steps taken, weight gained or lost, as well as blood pressure, hydration etc.

Apple should launch the iWatch sometime in the second half of 2014.
