Apple Is Testing Watch-Like Device

Want the powers of communication at your wrist, like out of some sci-fi novel? Apple reportedly is developing a “watch-like device” according to the Wall Street Journal, and it may have some of the features of a smartphone.

Sources say Apple has discussed this kind of a device with Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., also known as Foxconn, and that company is developing technology for Apple and other customers that could be “making displays more power-efficient” and helping chip manufacturers “strip down their products,” the Wall Street Journal reports.
