John Gruber, author of the popular tech blog Daring Fireball, may have shared a secret today. In a blog post, Gruber offered some brief commentary on Motorola’s upcoming smartwatch. After mocking the Moto 360’s almost-circular display, he claimed that Apple will be announcing their “wrist wearable thing” next month.
For the most part, Apple has kept its wearable very secret. It’s difficult to form a realistic picture of the device with such little information. The wearable will probably come in multiple screen sizes to accommodate for smaller wrists, it will have some health-related sensors, and it might have a curved display. That information leaves a lot to the imagination, which has led to some pretty interesting concepts. Some have speculated that Continuity features could be incorporated as well.
Although this could have been more of a humorous jab at Motorola’s product, Gruber has close ties to people at Apple, and a history of making accurate projections for iPad 2 and iPad mini. If this statement is true, we can probably expect to see Apple’s wearable alongside the new iPhone(s) on September 9th.
What will Apple have to do to interest you in its wearable device? Share your thoughts in the comments.
