There have been rumors now for months that Apple may be releasing an iOS based watch, called the ‘iWatch’. The news is failing to subside and TGBus, a Chinese Tech website are still claiming that Apple are planning to release a 1 – 1.5 inch OLED screen watch,
The reports would indicate that Apple are working with Intel on creating a Bluetooth watch that will work with the iPhone and is expected to be released as soon as Q1-Q2 2013.
While many are dismissing the news as nonsense, there are some analysts who claim it may actually be correct. Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster has said that he believes smartwatches may be a market that Apple find interesting.
Consumers seem to already be interested, as some are already using the sixth generation iPod Nano as a watch, with wristbands available to fit it.
