Few days back, Apple hired another Nike’s chief design director as they are working on a wearable device.
A source from Nike told that Ben Shaffer, the Chief Design Director and the designer of Flyknit shoes and Nike Fuel Band resigned from Nike where he previously worked at Research and Development (R&D) Lab under whom the company was voted as the most innovative company of 2013. This once again adds up to Apple’s iWatch rumors.
Just a month ago, Apple recruited Nike’s Jay Blahnik who also played a big role in the development of Nike Fuel Band. The two sudden recruitment of Nike’s prominent designer by Apple gives birth to the fact that Apple is developing something wearable and something that will concentrate a lot on fitness and health.
Earlier this year, Apple also snatched experts from companies like C8 MediSensors (Company that deals with Glucose level monitoring devices) and AccuVein (Company that deals with devices used for Veins Mapping).
Last month, Samsung shocked Apple by launching their smartwatch Galaxy Gear. The smartwatch could be paired with Galaxy Note III and allowed users to text and make calls with it. It also had a camera in it and allowed users to access the apps.
Even though this time Samsung came up with the smartwatch pretty earlier than Apple, still we can assure you that Apple’s iWatch will have super extraordinary features that will blow up your mind when it Apple declares it.
