  • Apple's iWatch Reportedly Enters Production in Small Quantities Ahead of a Fall Launch

    According to supply chain sources cited by China Times, Apple’s suppliers have already begun producing the iWatch in small quantities, ahead of a prospective launch during the second half of 2014. This sentiment echoes an earlier report from notable analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo. The site’s sources also suggest the iWatch will take advantage of a system-in-package (SiP) design that allows a multitude of chips to be placed on a single module. This could allow Apple to fit the multiple sensors rumored for the smart watch into a tiny area while keeping the device small enough to be worn comfortably on the wrist.

    Rumors have pointed towards Apple’s iWatch containing several different biometric sensors allowing it to track health-related statistics like heart rate, sleep quality, movement and more. The sensors will aggregate data that will be stored in a rumored “Healthbrook” application, slated for inclusion in iOS 8.

    Along with including health sensors, the iWatch will likely function similarly to other smart watches on the market, integrating with the iPhone and iPad to provide notifications and quick access to frequently used apps and services.

    The Cupertino California company’s iWatch is expected to ship in two different sizes to accommodate different sized wrists and it may also come in multiple price points and materials. According to recent reports, Apple’s iWatch could make an appearance as soon as September, but a solid launch date continues to remain unclear.

      I think they will start with one version. But this could evolve to so much more really. Different bands. Or watch face holders. Loads of possibilities.
