Every time is less so that the Apple Watch finally reaches the market and day after day new data about him appear. A few days ago Tim Cook commented that he always carries the smartwatch, even in the shower, confirming that it will be water resistant, a feature that would be reinforced thanks to a housing that would be preparing the Lunatik accessory manufacturer for the Watch.
On March 9 Apple will hold the Keynote “Spring Forward” where they are expected to release more details of the Watch, among other things. Price, release date, more software features, belt availability … are just a few of the Apple Watch related issues that Cupertino’s could try at their next event.
Lunatik is a well-known manufacturer of accessories for iPhone, iPad, and iPod that would now also be working on a waterproof case for the Watch. This accessory is called Epik Apple Watch Kit and would serve to protect the smartwatch from knocks and friction, as well as to improve its resistance to water, a feature that will already be standard.
A case to protect Apple Watch
As we see in the image accompanying this news, this Lunatik waterproof housing would fit around the Watch screen, causing them to increase their dimensions, something that might not end up liking those users looking for a device. Wristless dramatic. However, it can be a great option for those users of Apple Watch who want to give an extra protection and avoid scratches or blows.
At the moment, the Epik Apple Watch Kit from Lunatik is under development and will not be until a few months after it reaches the market. Besides, seeing the images is inevitable to see a certain similarity between the casing for the Watch and the straps that this same manufacturer released for the iPod Nano that turned it into a watch.
Surely, accessories manufacturers will launch their corresponding proposals for cases for the Apple watch, and within a few months, there will be more models to choose in addition to the Epik Apple Watch Kit Lunatik. But will these accessories triumph among users?
On March 9, many doubts about the Watch
As we said at the beginning, on March 9 Apple will hold a Keynote called “Spring Forward” that can be followed through streaming on the web or with an Apple TV. Although the company has not disclosed any details about the event, they are expected to offer several Watch details, such as the release date or price, among other things.
But Apple Watch would not be the sole protagonist of Keynote. There are also those who believe that it could be the time chosen to present to the world the iPad Pro and the new version of the MacBook Air with a 12-inch screen.
At the moment, thanks to the guys at Applesfera we know that the Watch will have a waterproof and shock resistant shell made by Lunatik, which can be kind of interesting.
