Rumors about Apple’s first smartwatch keeps piling up day by day, and now, a new report from the Wall Street Journal says that there can be more than one. According to the famous journal, Apple is planning to release “multiple version of the smartwatch” that will be launched this fall, in the sense that there will be “multiple screen sizes.” Also, WSJ believes that the more feature in the watch is intended to differentiate itself (or themselves) from the competitors.
As mentioned, the smartwatch has many screen options, and will include “more than 10 sensors” that is related to or capable of tracking fitness data. Some of the sensors that rumored are accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, compass, heart-rate monitor, altimeter and an ambient light sensor. As Google’s smartwatch partners and Samsung already have some of this, Apple is ambitious to cram in most of this feature into the small watch on your wrist.
As you also remember, recent rumors reported by the New York Times points to a possibility of a wireless charging for the wearable, but not necessary Qi. Some of the ways like inductive, solar, motion charging are all have been considered. Again, the WSJ suggests that the product will be launched in October, which supports other rumors that has been leaked out for months.
