Unlike new iPhones, we haven t seen any part leaks or concrete information about the iWatch yet. One reason could be because Apple isn t planning to launch the wearable until early 2015. So far what we have heard is that iWatch could support NFC alongside health and fitness features to monitor user s heart rate, hydration among other things, that Apple introduced with iOS 8.

The device could also have wireless charging capability. According to a report, the iWatch could cost around $400, and come in muliple sizes.
