Apple to release iWatch in October, report says

June 7, 2014 

Since late 2012, Web rumors have maintained that Apple is developing a watchlike device that consumers can connect with their smartphones. Japan’s Nikkei Asian Review added weight to those rumors with a report Friday that said the gadget will go on sale in the fall.

According to Nikkei, the so-called iWatch will feature a curved touchscreen and will be designed so that customers can use it to collect health data about themselves. The gadget will run iOS. Apple did not respond to requests for comment.

Earlier this week, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White said he expects the iWatch to be announced alongside the next iPhone in September, with a price between $199 to $229.
