Apple is rumored to be gearing up to debut its first wearable device when they unveil the new iPhone 6 in September.

'iWatch'

Dubbed the ‘iWatch’ by eager Apple enthusiasts, the rumored wearable device would be a smartwatch that would feature HomeKit and HealthKit platforms. Based on these new health apps, some speculate that the watch will operate as a health-monitoring tool.

Other tech companies, such as Samsung and LG, have already successfully released smartwatches that can connect to a person’s smartphone, and one might assume that the ‘iWatch’ would connect similarly to one’s phone.

It’s unclear how the ‘iWatch’ would work in conjunction with the iPhone. Depending on its function, the ‘iWatch’ could be announced at the same time as the unveiling of the iPhone 6 in September, or it could be included in Apple’s iPad and Mac computers event in October.

In keeping with their secretive nature, Apple has remained silent on the rumors. However, Apple did obtain a patent for a smartwatch design in July. Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 6 at a conference Sept. 9.
