DigiTimes is saying that Nike may be getting ready to launch a smartwatch as soon as the first half of 2014. The rumor claims that Nike's potential smartwatch is "currently under trial production at EMS firm Flextronics International".Nike already has its FuelBand device that does include a clock, but no one would claim it is a smartwatch. A report from
There is no info on what functionality would be available or what software would run, but it seems safe to assume that it would likely be quite similar to a FuelBand with the companion app built-in and support for other apps. We would hope that if Nike is planning a smartwatch, it would open up compatibility more than its iOS-only app.
This is of course assuming that the report is actually true. DigiTimes' "supply chain sources" don't exactly have the best track record, because plenty of products that make the testing phase never actually make it to market.
