Apple working on bendable Willow Glass smartwatch

Apple is working on a Willow Glass-based smartwatch, according to sources at the consumer electronics giant.

The New York Times reports Apple is experimenting with wrist watch-like devices, which run on iOS and are built using Corning’s Willow Glass.

The news comes after Kickstarter project Pebble Watch raised $US10 million for a smartphone, while Google continued developing its Google Glass augmented reality glasses.

“Apple is already in the wearable space through its ecosystem partners that make accessories that connect to the iPhone,” Forrester analyst Sarah Rotman Epps told The New York Times.

“This makes Apple potentially the biggest player of the wearables market in a sort of invisible way.”
