According to a ChangeWave survey, consumers show a similar level of interest in purchasing a rumored iWatch from Apple, as were interested in buying an iPad just before the Apple tablet was announced.
14 percent of respondents indicated that they are ‘somewhat’ likely and 5 percent ‘very’ likely to purchase an iWatch, with current owners of Apple products significantly more likely to buy an iWatch.
There are numerous rumors that Apple could release iWatch this year. Ran Avni created iWatch concept video that features a 1.6-inch Multi-Touch display and a magnetic watch band. Let's watch:
After meeting with Apple's suppliers in China, one analyst believes that Apple will release a TV with a new accessory that allows a user to control a TV using finger gestures.
Bloomberg reports that Swatch CEO Nick Hayek does not believe that potential iWatch could replace the iPhone. At a press conference in Grenchen, Switzerland, Hayek hinted that a smart watch from Apple will fail due to the small size of the display.

Bloomberg claims citing a person familiar with Apple’s plans that features under considerations for the device include allowing users to make calls, check map coordinates and see the identity of incoming callers.

PR managers of Incipio admit that these straps are the best. Well, we need only to know their price ... but so far we've noticed only the following message: "Incipio offers new and unique design of straps for iPod nano iWatch.

What happens when Apple introduces a square-shaped new iPod and adorns it with an analog watch face for a lock screen? A whole new cottage industry sprouts up, whereby entrepreneurial types dust off old and mostly worthless watch straps, cut out an iPod nano-shaped compartment in them, and charge you $19.99 for the privilege of turning your tiny PMP into a somewhat bulky wristwatch. The saddest part about this is that we've got a feeling they might be on to a winner here.
Every day we continue receiving new messages about the iPod nano with 1.8 inch screen. Some users even think that Apple is planning to release a new wrist watch called iWatch. Although it does not mean that if it releases the device, all children will wear it on their wrists. The most interesting is that some users already wear their iPod nano on their wrists!
We suppose that the new device may sport FM radio or even a camera, though unlikely. It will be priced at $ 100 or less. Can we really wait for it next week?
ADR Studio, which is an Italian design firm, recently tried to create another "Apple style product" and called it iWatch. As you see, it's a new kind of watch with aluminum casing, 16 Gb capacity and ability to connect to any mobile iDevice via Bluetooth or Wi-fi. The idea of iWatch is that it should answer calls coming to iPhone in your pocket, and internet access should allow reading RSS feeds and even viewing photos and weather. There is also a pico projector built-in to project images and videos.
