Can Apple lead again in innovation?
Apple has consistently created revolutionary products. The iPod revolutionized how we listen to music, iPhone changed the mobile phone business forever and iPad made us more immersed in our digital world of apps and connectivity.
For the past weeks, there has been an rising rumor that Apple is once again on the verge of innovation. Reports are pointing out that Apple’s next product will be a wearable device capable of the functions of your smartphone and more – the iWatch.
What to expect with the iWatch?

Personal Assistant. The iWatch will obviously have a personal assistant app like the Siri. It might be the Siri itself with more improvements.
Health Monitoring. Another feature of the iWatch will be health monitoring. Since it is always attached to your body, it can monitor your pulse rate, blood pressure, temperature and other health information. This will be useful to athletes and ordinary people alike.
Maps. Imagine speaking to your watch the place where you want to go and it shows you a map to guide you from where you are up to where you want to go. That’s iWatch!
Making Calls and Messages. This makes me imagine movies about spies where they communicate using their watch. Messaging can be done by voice typing. It’s awkward to type on you phone, talking to it is cool.
