Apple Watch

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is known for taking extensive efforts for the development of its products – its iWatch is no exception. The coveted product iWatch, also known as Apple Watch, is the most personal product ever made by the company. The company took unprecedented efforts by building a top secret health and fitness lab to collect useful data for Apple Watch.

Apple Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) employees volunteered for various physical exercises at this state of the art lab. They have been running on trade mills, practicing rowing, yoga and a large variety of activities that are focused testing different health parameters. The employees were not even aware that they were wearing an iWatch while doing all those activities.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) also decided to test Apple Watch in different weather conditions. It sent its employees to different parts of the world, just to see how the Apple Watch functioned. The company even created “climate chambers” to test the product in controlled weather conditions to see how it performs in extreme conditions.

But why build a secret health and fitness lab? Well, iWatch is not just an ordinary watch. It will also act as your health companion that will collect important information such as your heart rate, the distance you walk, the active calories you burned in your day and even the time you stand up.

The watch gives you visual presentation of your daily health and also gives you a gentle tap when you need to stand up and take a walk. Dr. Michael McConnell, a professor of cardiovascular medicine at Stanford Medicine, commented that Apple Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) efforts will bring new milestones in the field of cardiovascular technology.

Apple Watch will be available in stores next month. It will be available from a price range of $349 (Apple Watch Sport) to $17,000 (Apple Watch Gold Edition). Apple Watch will add a new way we collect our medical data. That is why this new product is set to create sensations in health and fitness industry.
