The Apple iWatch will reportedly be introduced during a special event on September 9, with the rumor mill and hype machine continually driving interest for the expected announcement. Apple has been under pressure to announce a new product category, with CEO Tim Cook previously stating the wrist could be an ideal place for a new Apple product.




Details regarding the iWatch remain unknown, but previous reports indicated the screen size could range from 1.3" up to 2.5" - and Apple could release multiple screen sizes to consumers. Similar to other smartwatches already available, health and fitness should be major selling points for Apple's announcement next month. However, hardware specifications and pricing details won't be known until September 9, as Apple prefers to remain secretive leading up to its events.


Most smartwatches are designed for Google Android-powered devices, and while the iWatch hype has ramped up in recent months, Apple will have to compete against Samsung, LG, and scores of other competitors in the suddenly crowded market.
