Apple is finally hosting its iPhone 6 press conference tomorrow though we’re almost certain that won’t be the only product on display.

Rumors have been swirling around for months suggesting that Apple has another larger iPhone with a 5.5-inch display up its sleeves. Additionally, newer reports have pointed to an early announcement of the iWatch and possibly even Apple’s refreshed iPads.

Yesterday afternoon, Re/Code said that Apple had moved its plans to announce the iWatch in October and will instead reveal the wearable during Apple’s planned press conference on Sept. 9, where it’s also expected to introduce two models of the iPhone 6. Within mere hours of that news hitting, Samsung and LG pushed out press releases announcing new smartwatches. Coincidence?

Motorola on Thursday officially sent out invites for a press event that it’s hosting in Chicago on Sept. 4.

While Motorola has introduced several new phones since it launched the Moto X last year, we’re overdue for an upgrade. Most rumors have pointed toward a device dubbed the “Moto X+1,” which we expect to make its debut during the press event. We also think the company will use the time to discuss the Moto 360, including the smartwatch’s launch date and price, in addition to possibly the Moto G2, a successor to the popular and lower-cost Moto G.

Apple’s highly rumored and often talked about iWatch needs to be a breadwinner. No, Apple isn’t in any sort of dire straits – the company is still performing admirably in the smartphone and tablet markets. However, Tim Cook and his team have been talking a big game, Wall Street is watching Apple’s every move, consumers are waiting for new products and Samsung, Google and Pebble are all taking market share away from segments Apple hasn’t touched: smartwatches and wearables.

I ordered myself the G Watch smartwatch the very first day it was made available. Perhaps I was still starry eyed from the Google I/O presentations, which seemed to suggest this was some sort of revolutionary sort of new gadget that would help me navigate the city, order food, hail a taxi cab and more. Or maybe I just had my regular weekly rush of gadget lust. Either way, I didn’t think much about it, and the minute orders opened up on Google Play I picked up a G Watch smarwatch (I went in blind, choosing this model only because it had the larger battery than the Gear Live), and chose overnight delivery.
