    To say I've been excited about Google Now on a smartwatch is a bit of an understatement. I've ranted about how Google Now and wearables were a match made in heaven more than once. And the minute Android Wear was announced, I stopped what I was doing and vented about my buyer's remorse over the $250 I had just spent on Pebble Steel. Things have changed somewhat, though, and I'm now perfectly okay – even quite pleased – with Pebble Steel. Android Wear has finally hit virtual shelves and the launch hardware is, dare I say, boring and bland. And turns out, our Michael Fisher found the new ...

    The most contradicting and controversial rumors of the year have everything to do with Apple's iWatch. Some have said that we'll see two iWatch models launched this year, while others assume that Apple isn't ready for a launch in 2014. Now rumors are even considering a third iWatch model being produced as well, and these rumors continue to point to a 2014 launch. Taiwan’s Economic Daily is contradicting some of the recent rumors from KGI securities, and claiming that there will be three iWatch models instead of two. One of these models will have a 1.6-inch display, and then the two ...

    Looking forward to Apple's iWatch? Sure, just you and a couple billion other iOS fans who have so far been eyeing all this Android Wear business this summer with thoughts of “just wait; you'll see.” And based on the rumors we've heard so far, the iWatch really is shaping up to be a force to be reckoned with, not just with some very premium hardware but also deep OS-level integration with Apple's other mobile devices. We've been hoping to see the iWatch arrive sometime this fall, with reports leaning towards availability maybe sometime in October, following production hitting full-blast ...

    Most of the rumors that surround Apple lately have to do with the company's plans to build a wearable. We're still not sure that it'll be called the "iWatch," but we do know that the company has been hiring people from different sectors in health and fashion in order to build its first smartwatch. The sudden death of the Nike Fuelband has left a ton of very talented people available for such a task, and Apple is already taking action. Two former Nike Fuelband employees have just updated their LinkedIn profiles to confirm that they work for Apple. The two new Cupertino employees are Jon ...

    Rumors continue to arrive regarding what we can expect from Apple's iWatch in the coming months. We've already heard that the company is working on a probable October launch, and we've also heard of sports celebrities wandering the Apple campus, aside from other rumors that there will be two variants of the iWatch. If you're wondering what these two variants are, and what they'll do, you've come to the right place. A source familiar to the matter has just shared that Apple is already testing two iWatch models with very different designs. There is a "Sports" model, which apparently has a ...

    The latest details to arrive on Apple's rumored plans for its iWatch streamed in overnight, talking about multiple hardware versions and a bevy of sensors providing the wearable with all sorts of data about the user and his or her environment. At least some of those sensors are rumored to gather health data, which makes perfect sense considering the heavy focus on HealthKit we saw at the iOS 8 launch earlier this month. But now some new info has come our way that makes clear just to what extent health and fitness are to be a part of the iWatch, with word that Apple's recruiting pro ...

    We've recently heard some reports mentioning the future possible size and launch details of the upcoming Apple iWatch, but this latest bit from the Wall Street Journal -- which is most of the times accurate when it comes to Apple -- seems to contradict to a certain extent the previous Reuters report. Today's report claims that there will be not one, but "multiple versions" of the iWatch. In addition to this piece of information, we're also being teased with the fact that Apple's wearable "will include more than 10 sensors including ones to track health and fitness". The report is based on ...

    Rumors of an upcoming Apple iWatch have been piling up for months, and it seems 2014 may just be the year (if recent reports are to be believed). Today, we're learning of even more details of this upcoming wearable to add on to what we've already heard about -- the device's screen size and launch timeframe have allegedly been exposed, among other details. According to sources of Reuters, Apple is looking to ship 50 million iWatch units within the first year of it being sold. No other wearable has hit this mark quite yet, but because of Apple's brand recognition, this could be a ...

    The fact that there was no hardware announced at WWDC 2014 makes Apple's fall launches quite compelling. We were expecting the company to launch the iWatch and some revamp to the iPhone at the event, and at the moment all we have are progress reports. The latest rumors from China are in today, and it gives us a clear picture of what to expect for both the iWatch and the iPhone. When it comes to the iWatch, rumors are slowly getting more detailed. This report mentioned a launch by Q3/2014, and that we should expect to see components and production from Largan, Foxconn, Pegatron, Quanta, ...

    Apple may be famous for the products it has launched over the last couple of decades, but one thing that it has also become infamous for, is for the products it has decided not to launch, or even for the technologies it has always been late to adopt. Another thing Apple is famous for, and in this particular manner Steve Jobs mainly, is in attracting some very good talent in order to help him make the best decisions while he ran Apple. One of these talents is famous designer Hartmut Esslinger, which Steve Jobs hired in 1982, and which is still highly respected in the industry. If you're ...

    Apple allegedly has its best product pipeline in 25 years, and it now seems one of these extraordinary products will be the elusive iWatch. While the name "Apple iWatch" is entirely still a rumor, the fact that the company is working on a wrist-mounted wearable is now not -- an Apple staffer has confirmed that a smartwatch is in the works. In a profile of Cook done by The New York Times, numerous employees of the company were interviewed. Topics ranged from how Apple has changed post-Steve Jobs, all the way to the iWatch. Here's the exact quote: They point to the development of the ...

    Apple's making sapphire. Or rather, GT Advanced Technologies is handling the production in its Arizona plant, but these materials are destined for Apple products. The only questions, really, have concerned just which devices might end up with sapphire, and what it would be used for. And while it might be nice to see sapphire protecting the displays on all of Apple's upcoming gear, could there really be enough to go around? We've already heard rumors that production issues could limit the availability of certain models, but a new analyst report says we shouldn't be fretting, and claims that ...

    The Apple iWatch is coming; this becomes more and more of a certainty with each report. When exactly will the world see it? October of this year is what one of the most recent reports is claiming, though things are not certain at the moment, neither regarding a launch date, nor the sole existence/launch of the wearable. However, if Apple decided to announce the iWatch, UBS (investment firm) believes that the company will likely sell 21 million units in the fiscal 2015, with 36 million units in the year after that. These are all, of course, unverified bits if information, reports, and ...

    Rumors of an Apple iWatch have continually been swirling for months now, and it seems that the time is almost here. Multiple sources claim Apple is scheduling an October event to debut a new wearable, and while the iWatch isn't mentioned by name, the safest bet at the moment is to expect a wrist-mounted wearable to be unveiled. When Eddy Cue said that Apple has the greatest product pipeline in his 25 years at the company, he seemingly wasn't lying -- Apple reportedly is confident enough in this upcoming wearable to ramp up production between three million and five million units per month. ...
