Apple iWatch has seen its fair share of rumors in the past few weeks. Yesterday, analyst Brian White of Canton Fitzgerald mentioned that Apple will unveil its timepiece in September, alongside the upcoming iPhone 6. White also mentioned the iWatch will come with a $200-230 price tag when it launches in the fall.
Now, according to a new report, citing industry sources, Apple is expected to reveal the purported iWatch in October. While the specifications of the device are unknown at the moment, the report mentions it will come with a curved OLED display and some health-related features.
The health-related metrics include calorie consumption, sleep activity, blood glucose and blood oxygen levels. It will also give users the ability to connect to a smartphone and read notifications on it, which we are assuming is the iPhone.
Recently, Apple showcased their upcoming IOS 8, which is expected to hit the devices in the fall, possibly after the launch of the iPhone 6. Apple usually releases a new operating system alongside the refreshed iPhone, and this year could be the same as well.
Suppliers say that Apple plans to manufacture three to five million units each month, which is much higher than the sales of the wearables currently available in the market. The Cupertino giant also teamed up with health organizations, including Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic to manage the health-related metrics.
There’s no word from Apple about it, and there won’t be until the iWatch is officially released. We’ll update you as soon as more information pops up.
