An Apple Watch Time Clock?

There's been lots of buzz about the new Apple Watch, scheduled for release in early 2015. A major focus of the smartwatch will be on fitness apps, like tracking your daily physical activity to show how much time you've spent moving, exercising, and standing. You'll also be able to receive notifications via a physical tap on the wrist for things like incoming mail and messages. It's going to be compatible with the iPhone 5 and later models running iOS 8.2, which you'll need in order to pair it with the Apple Watch.

These kinds of gadgets always start the gears turning for our engineers, thinking of ways to incorporate time and attendance into a smartwatch. If you're a private contractor, consultant, or legal professional, it seems like a natural fit for recording time spent at each of your clients so you can accurately bill your labor hours. Tracking your hours on an Apple Watch sounds like a nice edition to our current suite of desktop applications.
