There have been whispers about a launch date set for the Apple iWatch in October this year. Apple has expectedly declined to comment about the gadget so far when approached by multiple parties.
Nevertheless, a recent profile published by the New York Times on the current CEO of Apple, Tim Cook. The profile highlights Tim Cook himself, his leadership skills and management preferences. It also features employee and colleague praises about him as well as how Apple has had to cope post Steve Jobs and the pressure the company has been faced with.
It’s a good piece to read on how the company has evolved since Cook became CEO three years ago. Employees praised Cook in being a man who has intellect and is approachable. The employees who wanted to be left anonymous however, pointed out that Cook is less involved with minute tasks in the iWatch product development and has chosen to delegate finer details for the iWatch to the members of an elite and executive cabinet such as Jony Ive.
What we do pick up on reading this profile is that the Apple iWatch is for a fact, confirmed to be in the works. It’s no more a question of does it exist, rather it is a question of when will be launched. Cook has been said to be more focused on the overall implication and workings of the device. The iWatch is expected to feature abilities to monitor heart rates and other vital signs and how this will help the user in their everyday health care as well as making doctors more informed and effective. With these features said to be included, it is not a surprise if Apple’s Health and HealthKit play a big role in the iWatch and its workings.
