Is Apple creating a wearable for the health market?


Apple is building a new wearable that will offer new insights into users’ health according to a new report.

The Economic Daily News claims that suppliers are being sought to create the new device, which has been in development within Apple for the last couple of years and would be able to check heart rate changes, pulse blood sugar levels among other health tracking issues.

The report suggests that the new product will have a screen as apparently it’ll be able to use 3D Touch as a key part of the functionality, and has been developed over the past two years as part of an internal project by Jay Blank, (previously Apple’s director of fitness for health technologies) who is listed as working on ‘special projects’ at Apple on his LinkedIn profile.
