Apple's iWatch will reportedly make its debut on September 9th

While the news has been scarce for the rumored iWatch, we now have a solid source saying that the iWatch will reportedly make its debut alongside the iPhone 6 at an event in September.

According to Re/code, Apple's first wearable device will make its grand debut at a yet-to-be announced event on September 9th. The iWatch has been shrouded in secrecy with only a few clues leaking to the general public. It is highly likely that the wearable will work in conjunction with Apple's Healthkit and Homekit, two features that were unveiled for iOS8 at WWDC in June

Although there isn't a hint of what the device will look like, there has been speculation that there could be two models. Earlier reports suggest that iWatch could be produced in a standard and athletic model with reports that Apple is tapping professional athletes like Kobe Bryant, to test the highly secretive device.

If the speculated release date is true, this could be one the best kept secrets Apple has had in years.

I'd be surprised to see the iWatch on September 9th. My guess they will unveil the iPhone 6 with a 4.7" and 5.5" as has been heavily rumoured. I still think an Apple smart watch is a while off.

So far everybody in this category is pretty lame.... Moto 360 looks like the best but even that looks like crap. And there is virtually no use for this thing outside of google now. So far nobody likes these watches. If apple comes up something thats good then good for them.

I'm waiting for the rumored Microsoft smart watch with integrated blood glucose sensor.
*That* would be something really useful. I hope it will be on sale this year with a good enough sensor which delivers rather reliable data.

One thing can be certain, Apple did not just throw something together just because company A did or because company B did it. I'm prepared to see something that actually ties in quite well with their current ecosystem.

Certain? I didn't know you attend their product development meetings JHBrown! I mean I know you love the company but didn't realise they love you that much too! Wow!

Agree. Apple doesn't just put things together to play catch up. I'm glad they waited and are ready to release something. Most smartwatches out there are garbage, except the one from Motorola. That one looks amazing.

Uh, you dont have any idea what they are doing and neither does ctebah.

Neither of you have the slightest clue if this story is even true, you just both jumped in to do some completely unwarranted cheerleading for a completely mythical Apple product based on little more than your fandom for them.

"Apple doesn't just put things together to play catch up"
"Apple did not just throw something together just because company A did or because company B did it."

Yeah they do or else neither of you would have seen the need to run in and parrot that tired old line of nonsense knowing that other companies have already released smart watches or are going to before Apple does anything.

Maybe read before posting. It's same as think before speaking.

We are commenting on an article that makes assumptions about a device that "may" be in production stage. Therefore, most replies will be "assumptions". Didn't think anyone needed this explained.

Now show me a product that Apple has rushed to the market recently just to play catch up.

Apple has been playing catch up since Jobs died.

What's the sound when something flies waaaay over your head, whooosh?

I don't know. I think you'd have more experience with that.

What type of request is that? Any thing I give you will be summarily rejected by yourself because you are incapable of being impartial when it comes to that company's products.

And by what standard would we even use? We already know that hard-core Apple fanatics either think that a product that came after an Apple one was "rushed" to "copy" Apple or if it came before, it was "rushed" to beat Apple to the market. So using that standard of deranged logic, THIS would have been "rushed to market" because they are trying to put a "me too" "copycat" smartwatch out there before they get left further behind.

You know, the language Apple fanatics like to use for other companies.

But because this is Apple, the people that typically use that language want us to ALL know that this is going to be a completely original piece of perfection (without having the slightest clue if this is even a true story), basically preparing us for their usual display of double-standards they use when it comes to Apple products.

Here I'll repeat once again for you:

Now, maybe, just maybe, criticizm for other products comes from actual reviews. Samsung's smartwatch didn't really recieve any good reviews. Think about that before you call people Apple fanboys.

BREAKSCLUSIVE: Unannounced device to be announced at unannounced announcement event.

Lol I just caught on to your sarcasm. LOL

When I look at "slide to unlock" widgets like the above iWatch mock, I can't help but think "this should do a retinal scan instead."

Edit: I'M GOING TO PATENT THAT IDEA. NO ONE TAKE IT! LOL.

The fact we are expecting it, yet it is the best kept secret in years, just shows how poor at keeping secrets apple is.
It's a great marketing strategy though... get everyone writing about nothing and making speculations - you get a lot more attention than actually announcing anything - how many iWatch stories have we had to date compare to how much information is actually available.

The name is too similar to the Komono Eye Watch. It would be hilarious if Apple was sued over iWatch.

I think what is most likely is it isn't even in production yet, and a working prototype will be shown at the event and release would be a few months later. Similar to what happened with the iPhone which is why that never leaked properly before the first announcement.

Interesting theory, apple allowed leaks of the iphone 6 to distract the online tech sites from the iWatch.

There is no iWatch. These blogs pulled this last year only to go through the whole Apple show with no watch presented.

Some loser just wanted some attention, and he knew the right fish to dangle in front of the tech blogs to get it.

Out of curiosity.... A such absolute, conclusive and final statement is based upon?.....
