When Apple announced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the company also introduced a new device in its line-up, the Apple Watch. Since the announcement, the wearable from the Cupertino based company has been quite controversial and we still don’t have an exact date for the launch. The Apple Watch should end up being one of the most expensive smart wearable gadgets when it launches. So far, we were fairly sure that the timepiece would be launched in January or February 2015. Recent rumors push back that date, though.
According to the latest rumors, the Apple Watch has once again been delayed to Spring 2015. A leaked memo from company officials to certain retailers mentioned that the Apple Watch will only be launched in Spring, but gave no reason for the delay. The manufacturing process of the Apple Watch might have been compromised by the fact that the sapphire screen manufacturer for Apple has filed for bankruptcy recently. Since the Apple Watch has a sapphire screen display, these issues might have impacted the launch timeline. The timepiece from Apple is one of the most hyped wearable devices, mostly because it will probably end up being one of the best options out there. The fact that Apple chose to introduce the Apple Watch early shows that the company is acknowledging that competition is fierce in the wearable market. Making the Apple Watch known well before its launch might keep people away from other options such as the Moto 360, LG G Watch R, Sony Smartwatch 3, Samsung Gear S and Asus ZenWatch.
The anticipation surrounding the Apple Watch is noteworthy and many have settled to wait until the wearable is finally launched. We should see the stylish timepiece sometime in March or April, as per recent rumors. While the wearable market is in constant development and many are wondering whether smartwatches are becoming a “thing”, a trend or a crazy, the Apple Watch is slowly marinating and the company promises something mind-blowing. Tim Cook said that once you get the Apple Watch, you will start wondering how you could have lived without it before. Well, I’m not so sure that a fancy and expensive smartwatch would be something so crucial to my daily life, but let’s be patient.
