Apple iWatch Coming in September, But You’ll Have to Wait to Buy It, Report Says

I have not worn a watch for several years. Literally everywhere I go, there is a clock. My car, computer, Lunchroom, office/classroom. Sorry apple, if I’m not going t spend $20 on a timex, I’m not going to spend several hundred dollars on an Apple watch. I doubt that my with holding my contribution to your coffers will significantly affect your bottom line.

In the weeks leading up to the Apple event, reportedly scheduled for Sept. 9, most speculation has revolved around the debut of a new iPhone. But a new report adds to long-standing rumors that we will finally see an iWatch at the event, too.

Re/code claims that Apple will unveil a wearable device alongside two new versions of the iPhone.

With no leaked images of the device (now a common occurrence with new iPhone models), some observers had begun to believe rumors of a delay in the roll out of the device, and that 2014 would see no Apple wearable.

While no details have leaked out about the wearable’s looks, the report also goes on to claim that the device will be integrated with HealthKit and HomeKit.

Apple itself still hasn’t confirmed that it will produce a wearable. But the company’s CEO, Tim Cook, has hinted in recent earnings calls that the company would be breaking into new categories this year.

UPDATED: 4:25 p.m. ET: In the run-up to Apple’s Sept. 9 event, iWatch leaks are turning into a torrent of information. According to Re/Code, Apple has considered charging $400 for its wearable device, with lower prices for different models. This report is not a confirmation of the final price, but more of a well-sourced hint at the price range that consumers might expect when the iWatch finally hits retail stores.

Put that hammer away! Don’t smash your poor, inadequate watches just yet.

As it turns out, an earlier report that said Apple’s iWatch will arrive in September has been updated with a very important caveat: You’ll have to wait to buy it.

Re/Code, the same website that revealed Apple’s wearable device will debut at the company’s now confirmed September event, reported on Friday that the so-called iWatch will only be “announced,” and not offered for sale at the event.
