iWatch reportedly being put through the paces by pro athletes

The Apple iWatch is anticipated to include loads of fitness capabilities, and to test them Apple has reportedly turned to several professional athletes. If there’s anybody who would know what they need out of a fitness gadget, it’d be those for whom sports is their job. And so, Apple is reported to have called in athletes from the MLB, NHL, and NBA to help in testing out the wearable.

According to 9to5Mac:

Apple is said to be working with Los Angeles Lakers basketball player Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Kings right winger Dustin Brown, and a few other star athletes, including a player from the Boston Red Sox, on the testing project. The athletes are said to have signed non-disclosure-agreements regarding the existence of the upcoming Apple wearable device. Nonetheless, Bryant was spotted at Apple’s campus last month meeting with Apple design chief Jony Ive. Indeed, the meeting between the pair is said to have been in regards to “iWatch” testing.

The testing is said to have taken place “on multiple occasions over the past several weeks”, with the athletes in question visiting Apple’s Cupertino headquarters for briefings. The integration of fitness sensors and tracking in an iWatch would tie closely to the Apple M7 motion co-processor that’s included in modern iOS devices as well as the health-tracking HealthKit software built into iOS 8.

We aren’t expecting to see an iWatch for several more months, but what would you like to see it track, fitness-wise?
