iWatch to feature optoelectronics



China's Electrical Engineering Times reports that the coming iWatch will boast optoelectronics to monitor the heart rate and blood oxygen levels of the user.

Apple is said to have chosen the light-based technology over electrocardiography, a more accurate method which measures electrical impulses, due to the former's ability to continuously monitor heart rate with no action from the user. Most ECG-based products require multiple contacts, meaning users must either attach multiple diodes to their body or touch the product with both hands to get a reading.

iWatch сoncept by Belm Designs



A new concept of iWatch was presented by Mark Bell of Belm Designs for a contest featuring future products from some of today’s tech-giants.

We toyed with different shapes and even based a few on current offerings on the market today. We found that when it comes to a watch or in this case a “Smart Watch”, a traditional circular shape was most favorable. Most people are quite comfortable with the shape and it still exudes class and style.

Apple will use iOS 8 for iWatch and implement some sensors to monitor fitness and health signs  for  'Healthbook' app. An expert on sleep research and a 'User Studies Exercise Physiologist' have been hired to work on the project.

According to Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty, Apple may gain $17.5 billion from iWatch sales over the first year.
