While Apple is believed to be unveiling its rumored iWatch at its September 9 event, its availability has reportedly been delayed till next year. According to Re/code, Apple will unveil a range of iWatch models and one variant could be priced at $400, and others priced lower as well. The publication adds that Apple hasn’t finalized any pricing yet, but has considered $400 as a possible price point for one of the variants.
Apple’s plans of unveiling multiple iWatch variants is consistent with earlier rumors of there being three variants — one with 1.6-inch display, and two variants with 1.8-inch displays. There is no word on what iWatch variant will be priced $400. In comparison, the forthcoming Motorola Moto 360 is expected to be priced close to $250. The possible lower priced variants could compete with the likes of the Pebble Steel and the Android Wear powered Samsung Gear Live, which are priced below $200.
From what we know so far, the iWatch is expected to feature a flexible AMOLED display and will be loaded with sensors. It will be deeply integrated with iOS 8 features like Health and Homekit, which Apple unveiled at WWDC earlier this year. While Apple is expected to unveil its first wearable device alongside the iPhone 6 on September 9, the iWatch is reported to have been hit by numerous production delays and a recent report claims that it will only be available next year.
