Apple iWatch may be coming

Feb 11 2013, 5:35pm CST | by

For those who remember the comic strip character, Dick Tracy, the idea of a video communications device worn as a wrist watch is old tech. It may in fact, become new tech if rumors are true that Apple is developing a smart watch.

CUPERTINO, Calif. – Look out Dick Tracy, Apple may be developing an iWatch – a computer that could be worn on the wrist.

According to a report in the New York Times, Apple is developing a smart watch that would utilize the same iOS operating system used on iPhones, iPads and some iPods. Featuring a curved-glass screen, the iWatch could indeed feature a video-chat feature, such as Facetime.

As of Monday, Apple has not commented on the New York Times report. Some tech experts speculate that such a device could also monitor a wearer's vital signs and perhaps perform voice-activated commands.

Other companies are already developing smart watches. Pebble, which uses Bluetooth technology to link to a user's smartphone gained a $10.2 million funding record on Kickstarter, an online entrepreneurial company. TikTok and LunaTik are wrist-worn tech that converts iPod Nano into a smart watch.

Only time will tell if Apple will release an iWatch.
