Apple to announce multiple watches at WWDC

Apple iWatch

Rumours are starting to stir ahead of next weeks WWDC, this time around the press dubbed “iWatch” .. No evidence of a piece of wearable tech has yet leaked out of apple HQ. However, the chances of an unveil at the WWDC are very likely.

Most of these rumours are founded simply by the fact Apple have thought to have hired hundreds of hardware and software design staff.. Swiftly followed by the application for a patent for a wearable computer designed for the wrist.

But wait.. Apparently Apple won’t just be releasing one “smart watch” – apparently a collection is said to début. All believed to sport round faces, and not oblong as previous rumours suggested.

One thing we can be sure of, is if they do in fact release a wrist based iOS device, it will almost certainly have close connections to the HealthBook app.

As always, the more talented web goers have been hard at work mocking up potential concepts of the watch, the most popular on the net seems to be the “Goliath”, mocked up by Danny Mindspi from Argentina, which you can see in this YouTube video

I think the price point will prove crucial on this, not only does it have other smart watches to contend with – but also a market saturated with “health bands”

Will I buy one..? That all depends on the feature set, and again the price point..

Am I excited at the news..? Of course! What kind of an apple fan boi’ would I be if I wasn’t!
