63 million iWatches from Apple in 2014

30 August 2013

apple_logo_rainbow_6_color Tech companies Quanta and Inventec are all set to make 38 million iWatches by 2014, although, that number is likely to grow to 63 million according to analysts.

There's no clear spec for the new Apple device, but it is probable that you'll be able to connect the iWatch to your iPhone and do all manner of things. Apple haven't made any formal announcements as yet, but they did trademark 'iWatch' in July.

Gartner's Angela McIntyre reckons the iWatch will cost customers somewhere between $149 and $199.

She said: "That’s within the price range of a nice holiday gift for a husband or wife. Apple products are typically priced somewhat more than competing devices, and people who pay a premium for the Apple brand expect better quality and design."

"If Apple ships more than 63m units the year after launch, iWatch would ramp faster than iPhone, iPad or iPod, which seems unlikely. If Apple gets the iWatch right, it could become the top selling smartwatch."

There'll be big competition however, with Samsung's 'Gear' smartwatch due for launch in September and 'Google Glass' hitting the shelves by 2014 too.

    If you buy two iElasticBands you can strap your iPhone to your forearm. Bargain at £99.

Yes, makes my Rolex look like piece of proper cheap rubbish.
