It is the fashion device: many of the greats of the industry seem to be very interested in the Smart Watches, and Apple is no exception. Months ago that we have been talking about the theoretical iWatch of Cupertino, and a patent confirmed the rumors of its emergence.
It is patent 8.8787.006 granted by the Patent Office of the United States, Apple actually tried to register in July 2011 and that three years later is given the go-ahead. Among the curiosities is the name of the device: Apple used the name ‘iTime’.
The patent does not give commercial product information, but yes serves to know the features that Apple thought three years ago for a device of this type. They talk about an electronic bracelet in Cupertino with a mobile device that could Interestingly be to this bracelet if the user wished. Therefore, we would be talking about bracelets as receptacles in this case.
The patent also speaks of the control by gestures and elements such as gyroscope or accelerometer, in addition to the key paragraph: the possibility of “Exchange of information” between the smart watch and phone of the user, which for example would control the reception of SMS or playback multimedia.
Patents they are not in the way any definitive confirmation the launch of commercial products, and in fact the brand iTime is not recorded by Apple (the domain iTime.com belongs to Network Solutions currently), but all these data provide more value items that seem to point to the release of a proposal of Apple in this market.
