Apple is quite serious about its iWatch. Reports suggest that Apple is on a hiring frenzy right now to increase the work-force on the development of iWatch.
We are quite skeptical if Apple can do the magic once again. It is known the Samsung and Sony attempt on a smart watch failed miserably, we still can’t stop asking the question if Apple can make the iWatch a special device like it did with iPhone and iPad.
The company has reportedly brought on Marcelo Malini Lamego, the former CTO of medical device company Cercacor, to serve as a medical sensor expert, according to NetworkWorld.
Rumors also say that Apple is busy trying to integrate fitness and health focused software in the iOS 8 that is to be launched later this year.
Those apps also rumored to integrate with the iWatch, which would come with a variety of intelligent sensors that can track your body’s movement and health status.
The same attempt that Samsung tried to do with its smartphone, well Good luck Apple.
Although Lamego joined Apple in January, the company has been adding staffers for research and development of the rumored iWatch for some time now.
Michael O’Reilly, the former chief medical officer and executive VP for medical affairs at Masimo, joined Apple last summer to work on the iWatch, but according to 9to5Mac, it’s not his only project. The company is also currently looking to hire a user studies exercise physiologist.
