Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) saga with its smart watch, takes yet another turn, despite a committed April release by its CEO, Tim Cook. The downturn, this time, is that the features that the iWatch will come in its first release may well be disappointing. For none of the promised health tracking features are expected to be available just yet.
While Apple Inc. impresses that its first attempt is to ensure an April release and therefore, it will release with the features that are currently supported, the underlying news do emerge behind guarded lines.
Apparently, the crux of the matter at Apple Inc., is that the exacting-maker of stylish products has found suppliers and makers of the sensors which run the various health-tracking features, wanting.
As Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) insiders reveal, the multitude of sensors required to record the pulse, of the person, or the heartbeat appear to be inconsistent in performance. Therefore, the lack of high-performance hardware to link it much-publicized health-recording features has put the big Mac in a quandary.
Further, the recent public commitment by Cook, does not give the company much room to leverage. Therefore, Apple Inc. has chosen to do what is the best in the situation. Release the iWatch, sans the much touted features.
It will apparently offer a full-range feature support subsequently, when the sensors to record the users metrics is not thrown hay-wire by the hair on his wrist or otherwise. For, faulty readings could well draw the wrath of not just the users by regulatory authorities as well.
Thus, Apple Inc. will release its iWatch without the paraphernalia of health-tracking features. Disappointing news indeed, considering that the wait for this fancied piece of stylish-gadget has been so long!
Apple Inc., as per industry news reports, has ordered its overseas manufacturers to produce five-to-six million of their Apple Watches for the first quarter.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), according to experts will look to develop two models, the Apple Watch Sport, an entry-level model. The second would be the Apple Watch with a stainless-steel case and sapphire crystal.
