According to the latest report from DigiTimes, labor shortages were the reason for the slow launch of the Apple Watch back in April. Apple’s main supplier responsible for the assembly of the wearable device, Quanta Computer, was unable to find the required number of workers during the Lunar New Year holidays and this caused supply constraints.

Looks like there will be no fingerprint sensor. However, the waterproof and dustproof device will get a 3.500mAh battery.
