Apple is Working on a 1.7-Inch iWatch for Men, 1.3-Inch iWatch for Women?

Apple is working on two versions of a smartwatch, a 1.7-inch model for men and a 1.3-inch model for women, according to David Hsieh of DisplaySearch.
The device will reportedly feature an OLED display; however, at this point it’s unclear if it will be flexible.
DisplaySearch also says that Apple has delayed its development of a television to focus on wearable devices.
Paul Gagnon, director of North American TV research at DisplaySearch, said Monday that, “It appears that Apple’s long-rumored TV plans, which were far from concrete anyway, have been put on hold again, possibly to be replaced by a rollout of wearable devices.”
The iWatch will likely be lighter and more energy-efficient than its rivals and could contain biometric sensors to collect health information, says DisplaySearch.

AT&T to Sell the Pebble Smartwatch Starting September 27th

AT&T has announced that it will begin selling the Pebble smartwatch starting September 27th.

It’s time to rethink what a watch can be. As the most successful KickStarter campaign to date, the Pebble smartwatch extends control of your iOS or Android smartphone while giving you options to customize with apps for an active lifestyle.  Beginning September 27, AT&T customers can purchase the Pebble for $150 at att.com and in select retail stores with broader availability expected in October.

The Pebble smartwatch is a customizable, Bluetooth enabled smartwatch that wirelessly connects to your smartphone. Call alerts, emails, and text notifications all appear on the Pebble as they arrive to your phone. No need to pull out your smartphone to see who is trying to get your attention. Perfect for runners, cyclists, golfers or anyone with a busy or active lifestyle, the e-paper display makes the watch incredibly easy to read whether indoors or outside and it’s water resistant to boot. Users can also download applications onto their Pebble from a host of third party developers.

“As the exclusive carrier for the hot new Pebble smartwatch, this innovative device adds to AT&T’s extensive lineup of industry leading accessories for today’s connected world,” said Michael Cowan, Director, Accessory Portfolio, AT&T Mobility. “This smartwatch is fun, practical, and easy to use. It is simple to see why people have been clamoring to get their hands on it.”

Features:
● Press a button to change the watchface to fit your personal style. Download new watchfaces and applications, or design your own through existing third party sites.
● Great line-up of pre-loaded and downloadable apps perfect for runners, cyclists, golfers or those who are just busy.
