The world of the smartwatch is still in its infancy, and I guess if done right, it could explode to something entirely different – and large. Foxconn, a well known and long time manufacturing partner of Apple, has decided to take a slightly different route when it comes to a smartwatch. After all, why wait for rumors of the Apple iOS-powered smartwatch to become real, when you can actually go and build one from your very own manufacturing lines? Of course, Foxconn continues to bow down to Apple in a way (so to speak), by demonstrating a new iPhone-compatible wristwear which is capable of letting you preview Facebook messages as well as phone calls, all the while carrying the relevant sensors within to track your breathing and heart rate.
There would also be upgrades in the pipeline along the way, where among them would include a fingerprint reader which is capable of locking down on your health data. Foxconn continues to remain mum on the smartwatch’s launch details as at press time, and it shows that Foxconn has taken the right steps to diversify their income sources.
