A designer named Carlos Quijano has recently posted some renderings of what may be iOS 8 'Healthbook' app. In case you don’t know, this is an application that will be working with your iWatch and monitor your fitness activity, for instance, the number of miles you walked or the quantity of calories you burned. Useful piece of software, I must admit.
As noted by several sources, Apple’s long-anticipated iWatch will be a peripheral device. What that means is that it will probably require iPhone connection in order to be fully functional. MobiHealthNews reporters claim that the wearable gadget “will not be a smartphone on your wrist”. Kind of depressing statement, don’t you think so?
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.
You can enjoy the concept below.
Apple has heated the rumors about iWatch by posting a employment advertisement seeking a 'User Studies Exercise Physiologist' to design and run user studies related to cardiovascular fitness & energy expenditure.
No more rumors claiming that Apple’s long-anticipated iWatch will use solar power as a source of energy; as noted by several reliable insiders, the new wearable gadget will be equipped with a usual lithium-ion battery, manufactured (most likely) by LG Chem. However, there’s no information about the battery capacity of the would-be device.
9to5Mac reports that Roy J.E.M Raymann from Philips Research, an expert on sleep research, will work for Apple's iWatch team.
Before joining Apple, Raymann served as a senior scientist at Philips Research working as a lead on various sleep related research projects. He founded the Philips Sleep Experience Laboratory, a non-clinical sleep research facility, and also lead projects researching various aspects of sleep and activity monitoring through the Philips’ Consumer Lifestyle Sleep Research Program and the company’s Brain, Body, and Behavior group. Raymann’s research covers many projects related to monitoring and modulating sleep patterns through non-medical means.
According to Katy Huberty, Morgan Stanley analyst, Apple will reach $17.5 billion iWatch sales over the first year of release, showing a better performance than iPad with $12 billion in the launch year. Such optimistic forecast bases on the belief that iWatch will become an additional accessory for any iOS user rather than positioning itself as a completely new product.
According to the latest New York Times report, the company from Cupertino is currently working on new methods of charging its iPhones, iPods and the widely rumored iWatch. This methods, if to believe Apple’s former employee, include solar and wireless charging.

Contrary to the information that appeared earlier, the company from Cupertino is working on one iWatch model, not on two.
According to research firm DisplaySearch, Apple’s next-generation iPhone may get a full HD display. Apart from that, analysts predict that the long-anticipated iWatch will feature either 1.3-inch or 1.6-inch display. Finally, they think Apple will release a larger iPad. But everything in its turn.
