Update: See the official Apple Watch commercial here, which is the real name for Apple’s smartwatch. You can see the original article below that we published before the official news arrived at the event today.
The Apple event countdown is almost up, with Tim Cook due to take to the stage to announce not only the iPhone 6 but the infamous iWatch as well. We now have a last minute heads-up on potential iWatch specs and an iWatch price based on the rumors.
It now seems a forgone conclusion that the iWatch is going to be announced, as we told you earlier that Apple is even inviting members of the fashion world to their event.
What are we actually going to see though on stage in terms of iWatch specs and what the wearable device will be capable of? Samsung has already wowed the world with their Galaxy Gear, while Google are perhaps leading the way with the stylish Google Glass tech.
Apple are playing catch-up and they are going to have to unveil a device which will simply blow consumers away in order to distract attention away from the rival wearables that consumers are already interested in.
Based on rumors, the iWatch could be coming with a sapphire-based curved display screen. Interestingly, just like the iPhone 6, we could be getting two sizes of the device as well – a 1.3 inch iWatch and a slightly larger 1.5 inch model.
There is thought to be 512MB of RAM on board and 8GB of internal storage which should be plenty for the minimal tasks that will be required on the watch. Health sensors are thought to be integrated as expected but one potential stumbling block of the device could be a retail price of around $400.
We’ve also heard whispers that the iWatch won’t be ready to launch until 2015, which is an anxious wait and against Apple’s policy of launching new products almost directly after the event in which they are associated with.
Either way, the September 9 event is just minutes away and we can’t wait for the official details. Are you really excited about finally seeing this secret watch in the flesh?
Give ur your ideal specs and your opinion on whether a $400 price is reasonable or not.
