Apple Inc. is set to sell its first wearable item this coming October with the goal of producing 3-5 million smartwatches a month in their first run. This is reported by Nikkei. The devices are probably going to have curved OLED (organic light-emitting diode) displays and sensors that will collect health data from blood glucose and calories consumed.
The industry has just been waiting, assuming that Apple would produce a smartwatch at some point after Samsung released its Galaxy Gear watches. CEO Tim Cook has promised “new product categories” for 2014.
