Apple is set to launch multiple versions of the company’s first smartwatch, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Anticipated to launch this fall, the iWatch (unofficial name) will use more than 10 internal sensors that will track a user’s health and fitness, among other things.
The watch is expected to come in multiple screen sizes, which goes along with previous rumors surrounding the unannounced device. Shipments of the device are expected to total somewhere between 10 million and 15 million units by the end of 2014.
There is no concrete date for a release, though latest rumors slate it for sometime in October. Apple is still finalizing the watch’s specifications before it sends the device into mass production. That is expected to happen within the next few weeks.
The iWatch will reportedly have a round face and feature wireless charging, if previous rumors ring true. So far, there have been no reports to contradict the rumors, which could signal that they are accurate. Of course, no one will know for sure until Apple decides to announce the device.
Fans should expect a launch announcement for the iWatch this summer.
