More iWatch and Healthbook App rumors and speculations

A new post from mobihealthnews.com reports on more juicy rumors on the speculated iWatch. Here is a brief summary of points made in this article. 

  • The iWatch is supposed to be more an accessory than a primary device, as it is almost certain now
  • iWatch will not have micro needles to test your blood glucose levels or sense tears for that matter
  • On the contrary to previously believed reports, Apple meeting the FDA was to make sure that there are no issues with the iWatch and its related health Apps, remaining unregulated (not regulated)
  • The Healthbook App is being designed to herald in a ecosystem of health Apps and integeration and might not be called 'Healthbook'
  • With the iWatch, similar to other Apple products will not boast the technological capabilities (of say the advanced sensors), but rather showcase the superior unified experience that Apple is known for
  • Healthbook App will be similar to the Apps that accompany fitness trackers now (like the Fitbit) that focusses on a health, diet, exercise, etc.

There were also some interesting mockups of how the Healthbook App and iWatch integration might look like [via 9to5Mac]. 9to5Mac that kickstarted the Healthbook App rumors last month also notes that from these mockups are pretty close to the real deal, according to their sources.
