According to a new report from Wall Street Journal, the much-rumored and long-awaited iWatch will be released in multiple screen sizes and will feature more than 10 sensors to track health and fitness data.
WSJ claims that Apple’s smartwatch could launch as early as October with production to begin within two to three months at Quanta Computer Inc., a Taiwanese manufacturer that has long been Apple’s supplier for Mac computers, said the people familiar with the matter. Quanta will begin some trial runs next month.
Another report from Laoyaoba claims that the iWatch is awaiting certification from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ( FDA ) before it enters mass production. The report claims that Apple has finalized the design and specs for the iWatch, but the company is trying to get the device certified as medical equipment.
The site also reports that the iWatch will come with a number of advanced health sensors, including sensors to measure heart rate, blood pressure and blood glucose. It is rumored that Apple has also developed an in-house sweat analysis sensor for the iWatch, which will work with iOS 8‘s Health.app.
