China has begun assembling small batches of Apple iWatch smart watches

This was reported by 29 April, The China Times, citing sources among suppliers.

Apple has never announced the specs of a new wearable device. However, the company's CEO Tim Cook hinted that it would not be smart glasses. Therefore, information about sending iWatch to production is unofficial. According to media reports, the device will be in the form of a medium-width bracelet with a touch-sensitive color screen.

The output of iWatch is scheduled for the summer, so there is a possibility that the components for the gadget are ready. The Apple device includes a motherboard and a SiP module containing a processor and memory. Such components are typical for various devices, such as MP3-players. However, this information is not enough to predict the appearance of the future gadget.

According to the source, three million iWatch will be released in the second quarter of 2014 - a very small number for Apple. In the third quarter, their production will increase to 14-15 million. These shipments are already comparable to the number of tablets the company is selling.

Smart watches, fitness bracelets, glasses and other gadgets that the user can wear on themselves in everyday life - one of the trends of the technology market.

According to the forecast of the analytical company IDC, about 19,2 million “smart” wearable devices will be delivered to the world market this year, and by 2018 this figure will increase to approximately 112 million units. If the sources of the Chinese resource were not mistaken, then IDC will have to revise its forecast this year.
