Earlier today we heard that the Apple iWatch may launch in October, although everything we heard previously about this new iOS smartwatch pointed to a September launch for the device.
Now according to a recent report, one of the reason that the Apple iWatch will launch in October, is due to the device being delayed by the FDA.
As the Apple iWatch is expected to come with a range of biometric sensors, and it will have a strong focus on health and fitness tracking, the device apparently needs certification for the U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration), and this is holding up the release of the smartwatch.
Production of the iWatch is said to begin next month, and from what we heard earlier, Apple will launch the device in multiple sizes. We previously heard that there would be a 1.3 inch version of the iWatch for women and a 1.7 inch version of the smartwatch for men, although rumors of another device appeared earlier with a larger display.
Apple’s iOS 8 is also expected to come with a range of health and fitness tracking features built in, Apple announced their new Healtkit at WWDC earlier this month, and we are also expecting the new iPhone 6 to also come with some of these new feature.
We are looking forward to seeing what the final design of the iWatch is like, we wonder if the device will look as good as the new Motorola Moto 360, which is expected to launch at Google IO later this month.
