Apple Files in Russia to Protect “iWatch”

Interesting news to those of us who are tracking the work of Eric Migicovsky. Business news outlets yesterday reported that Apple, Inc., has filed for trademark protection of the term “iWatch”.

Apple has already announced plans to roll out an iWatch sometime – perhaps next year in 2014 – and presumably this is in response to the outrageous interest in the Pebble, Migicovsky’s invention that broke records last year at when Migicovsky was raising money to make the device. The news outlet adds this interesting comment at the end of their news report about Apple’s trademark application in Russia, when they referred to:

… an interview with Pebble founder Eric Migicovsky, where the owner of the smart watch makers said that he doesn’t have any comment regarding a possible Apple buyout.

Interesting. We’ll keep tracking this one.
