Apple continues bulking its Engineers for upcoming iWatch as it hires two more engineers from Nike’s Fuelband team. The Engineers will join team working on Apple’s long-rumored iWatch, which is expected to make debut in the fall.
Apple picked up Ryan Bailey and Jon Gale in June, as 9to5Mac initially reported from their LinkedIn profiles. Bailey has past experience of working in product development at Nike and testing and improving the Fuelband.Gale, on the other hand will work as a sensing systems engineer at Apple. He has experience of working on the hardware and firmware at Nike’s Digital Sport products.
Both the engineers will add much to the upcoming iWatch owing to their skills at Nike.
Last week, Apple reportedly hired a top executive of luxury Swiss watch maker TAG Heuer. So Apple is hiring a mix from health, fashion and sports experts.
However, its some how strange that Apple is making too many hires close to the product’s launch as we are expecting that the iconic iWatch will in this fall.
If the report by Re/code they made sometime earlier is accurate, then Apple might unveil iWatch in October. This means that the work on iWatch has been almost finished and what Apple might need may only be marketing experts.
Apple’s first wearable device iWatch is expected to aim at fitness and home automation. The iWatch may offer you to monitor hydration levels,heart rate, and sweat. Famous athletes like Kobe Bryant are said to be testing the iWatch.
