According to The Wall Street Journal, Apple is claiming that its upcoming entry to the smartwatch market, known as the “iWatch” will have ten or more sensors for collecting health data.
The report claims that Apple is working on multiple versions of the wearable device, which should be released later this year. The iWatch is will likely be health-focused and will work with Apple’s new Health app, which was announced earlier this month at the Worldwide Developer Conference.
The app and its associated framework, known as HealthKit, already has built-in support for different types of devices without the need for a third-party application. Apple has been hiring numerous health technology executives from various companies.
