While Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch is expected to be revealed in early September 2013, an analyst from the CIMB Group has said that the Apple iWatch may come in late 2014 and not early 2014 as many have thought. According to this analyst the iWatch will be priced from $149 (RM494) to $229 (RM760) and positioned to replace Apple's iPod range of media players. Since this is a financial analyst, the predictions go on to estimate that the iWatch will ship up to 63.4 million units in 2014 alone and will generate up to 19% worth of profits for Invetec, the company said to be manufacturing the Apple iWatch. As it is just a prediction and a really far ahead one at that, we caution you to take this rumour with one big pinch of salt. Unfortunately, there weren't any tech specs, features or exact Malaysia release dates but stay tuned as we'll keep you updated about the latest iWatch developments.
