Apple reportedly focusing on fitness tracking in iWatch, iOS 8
Some exciting info has popped up today in regards to iOS 8 and Apple's much rumored iWatch. According to 9to5mac, the iWatch may very well be leaning toward the fitness tracker route, more than that of "just" a smartwatch. It looks like iOS 8 may be leading with health and fitness tracking integration which means that an iWatch accessory would make for a perfect pair.
An iOS 8 app codenamed Healthbook would be capable of monitoring and storing fitness stats like steps, calories burned, miles walked and even track weight loss. Beyond that, Healthbook would be able to monitor vital stats like blood pressure and hydration levels.
The wearable iWatch would have various sensors that would tie into Healthbook and provide the app with all of the necessary information — and also meaning it would be very reliant on the users iPhone.
Of course take this for what it's worth as we'll certainly see plenty of rumors between now and the fall when the iWatch is said to launch. Hit up the link below for more.
