Apple iWatch - The future of wrist wear?  1 Comments


Rumours of Apple launching a wrist worn device with capabilities matching the early models of the iPhone is swirling on the internet. Already there are several multi function devices being sold by several brands but these are mostly dedicated electronic items to assist the wearer with global positioning, exercise management and music storage device. However the possibility of a small wrist worn device with the capability of the iPhone seems like a techie's dream. If ever such a product gets into stores, it may well be a renaissance for the wrist watch industry. Current youths do not care for wrist watches as their electronic devices already provide the function of timekeeping. But if smart devices miniaturise further and takes on the persona of a watch, I am sure there would be some positive spill over for the mechanical watch industry as well.
