Like hands a clock, rumors that Apple is developing a Dick Tracy-like wristwatch have come around again. The New York Times reports today that Apple is experimenting with wristwatch-like iOS devices that sport curved glass. The advantage of the “iWatch,” as some have labeled it, is said to be in the company’s expertise with curved glass. The smart wristwatch notion isn’t exactly groundbreaking: A lot of smartwatches, fitness bands, or some hybrid of the two, were talked up last month at CES. Some of those devices include the long-awaited Pebble wristwatch, which made its debut at the conference, and the 007-inspired Martian Passport Watch. Rumors of Apple working on just such a device have been circulating for months.
