iWatch to come in two sizes with 8 GB storage; available in 2015

Along with the iPhone 6 launch on September 9, Apple is expected to foray into the wearable segment with the launch of its first smartwatch which has been dubbed as the iWatch.


Previously, the iWatch has been rumoured to come in two different sizes and different materials where the pricing could range from $300-$1000. The rumoured sizes varies from 1.3-inch to 2.5-inch and we believe it will come in two different sizes.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iWatch might have a rectangular design and would include 8 GB of internal storage with 512 MB LPDDR3 RAM. Kuo also believes there will be two sizes of 1.3-inch and 1.5-inch to accommodate different wrist sizes.

The fact that wearable devices don’t need much memory explains our prediction of an 8GB version with 512 MB built-in-memory. We expect casing material to be of 2-4 different types, with aluminium the most likely as it has been widely used in Apple products. A gold casing option is also possible, to add a luxury image to the product. We believe iWatch will be rectangular in front/panel side shape. And lastly, like some other wearable devices, we expect there to be a number of holes on the back side of the device that can be used to monitor user’s vital health signs such as heart rate.

So, it is confirmed that the iWatch won’t go on sale until 2015. Apple will just announce it and it will also give developers time to make compatible apps for the iWatch.

Apple will be live streaming the event on September 9. We would provide timely updates on our website, as well, and you can also follow our Twitter Handle – TheTecholic to stay updated, if you cannot connect to a live stream.
