While there are other wearables out there to go for at the moment, Apple fans should be waiting for the much-rumored iWatch to be shown off. Well, you might have to wait till October it seems as that is when the device will get unveiled. That’s according to a report from Nikkei, the Japanese business newspaper.
The upcoming Apple iWatch will reportedly come equipped with a curved OLED touchscreen and biometric sensors which will keep track of your health by collecting data such as calorie intake, sleep pattern, blood oxygen levels and more. The device will run a version of iOS 8. The biometric sensors should work with the company’s new Health app in iOS 8. Previous rumors have suggested that the iWatch will be available in two sizes: 1.3 inches and 1.5-1.7 inches. As you probably know, the company’s upcoming iPhone 6 is also expected to be coming in two sizes (4.7 inch and 5.5 inch).
According to the report on Nikkei: “Apple appears confident of the new product. According to a parts manufacturer, it plans monthly commercial output of about 3-5 million units, which exceeds the total global sales of watch-like devices last year.”
Meanwhile, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White said yesterday that the iWatch will launch alongside the next-gen iPhone in September. And we have also heard rumors that the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone will only be launched by 2015.
