Apple has earned itself a good reputation for developmental standards; everyone would be expecting the company to create another legacy with the hotly anticipated iWatch – Apple’s initial attempt into the wearable market.
Samsung Gear 2, LG G Watch and Moto G should be bracing up for a new competitor which would arrive in a grand style. So we have been following the iWatch closely, and we have rounded up everything we know thus far.
This article would be updated as soon as we have further details about the iWatch, you could bookmark it to get involved.
There are several versions about the iWatch specifications; Reuters earlier claimed the wearable device will have a 2.5-inch rectangular screen, the report was laughed off by some pundits; reason being the iWatch would be too large as compared to the Galaxy Gear which is just 1.3-inch. A 2.5-inch iWatch wouldn’t qualify for a wearable and Apple who has been adamant in releasing an iPhone with a larger display knows that.
Other leaks have suggested the iWatch to have a curve display, some even suggested the iWatch would look just like the Moto 360, but will come in two separate models; 1.3-inch display and 1.5-inch display.
To climax it all, a Taiwan report claimed the iWatch would launched in three models; a 1.6-inch model and two 1.8-inche model. The latter would have two versions, a regular 1.8-inch iWatch and a high-end 1.8-inch sapphire display iWatch.
However, the iWatch is believed to feature multiple sensors, and they would all have dedicated uses. It would also feature a 250mAh battery and support for wireless charging. The iWatch is expected to run on the new iOS 8.
From the look of things and the company’s philosophy, we can believe that the iWatch will make a debut at Apple launch event in October.
There is no official statement from Apple, but multiple sources believe there could be no other special month than the month of October.
According to analyst Wanli Wang at CIMB Securities, Inventec and Quanta both based in Taiwan have contracts with Apple to produce the iWatch.

The report claims the iWatch would hit store-shelves with a price tag of $199.
Apple would be trying to get iWatch to the mainstream, so its highly unlikely Apple would overprice the iWatch, $199 doesn’t look terrible but we can’t be entirely sure until Apples gives an official price tag for the wearable device.
