There have been lots of rumors about the alleged Apple iWatch over the last couple of months, and the latest rumor is that Apple is hiring luxury watch-maker Tag Heuer for its stylish smartwatch. It is being noted that the iWatch is not only about health and fitness but will also be known for its good looks, aesthetics and luxury.
It has been rumored that the company is likely to launch the smartwatch in multiple screen sizes and designs this fall. The device would be fashionable and would have the capability to work in sync with the iPhone, iPad and Mac.
The screen size of the smartwatch is believed to be 1.3-inch and 1.5-inch respectively with flexible AMOLED displays. However, another report claimed that the smartwatch is likely to have a display measuring 2.5 inches diagonally and be slightly rectangular.
In terms of power, the iWatch is expected to be available with a 200mAh to 250mAh battery along with wireless charging.
Meanwhile, the device is anticipated to be equipped with sapphire lens cover, biometric recognition, an NFC chip as well as health-related sensors.
KGI securities’ analyst Ming Chi Kuo who has a good track record with Apple predictions has said that the rumored iWatch will have varying price points, with the most expensive version available at nearly USD1,000.
