But let’s take a step back and take a deeper look over the matters. In the last year, according to the specialists watching closely Apple’s activity, it seems that the tech mammoth hired a lot of senior medical technology executives, building a team of experts in the biomedical field, the hardware field and other medical – tech related areas. This mass scientists hiring is easily observable by checking LinkedIn changes of profiles and jobs, while people familiar with the hiring and Apple’s plans said, under complete anonymity, that the actual number of hires is still unknown.
Since the majority of hires focused on experts in the sensor technology and biomedicine, the facts can only lead to one conclusion: we will witness the creation of the Apple biosensing iWatch, a device with multiple applications in the monitoring and preserving users’ health and well – being. This conclusion is further strengthen by the statements of Ted Driscoll, a partner at Claremont Creek Ventures (a Silicon Valley expert who specialized in digital health and medical devices). According to Reuters, he declared that
Apple seemed primarily focused on recruiting engineers with experience in “monitoring the body’s perimeters.”
Now the medical – tech wearable devices aren’t a thing of the present, as many other tech giants tried to come up with smartwatches that can help people stay healthy and monitor some of their vital functions in order to prevent any unfortunate health problem to occur, but so far, on a very large scale, users didn’t get along too well with their wearable healthy – geeky devices. While Apple biosensing iWatch may change completely this state of facts, let’s not forget that Google’s approach is quite revolutionary too: their experts are working on contact lenses provided with microcameras that can monitor the glucose levels in tears, not to mention that the Google Glass can have tremendous benefits in the surgical field. With these rumors spinning around our heads, it is clear that it will be a hard game to play in the health wearable gadgets’ market. Until then, let’s wait for more rumors on Apple biosensing iWatch and try to make the best out of them!
