Popular electronics maker Apple is reportedly preparing to launch its own smartwatch, with sales starting in October. Partner OEMs will begin making parts starting sometime in July, and Apple wants to manufacture 3-5 million units per month. The rumored "iWatch" will use a curved OLED touchscreen and monitors health, such as calorie consumption, blood pressure, blood glucose, and sleep activity. Additional smartwatch specifications are unknown.

Following the release of Samsung Galaxy Gear watches, and other rivals jumping into the market, Apple is expected to answer back. As the Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy smartphones lead the market, being able to pair smartphones with smartwatches will help extend customer loyalty.

Apple still hasn't publicly announced a device, but analysts expect a press event to be held shortly before the device debuts.
