iWatch: New Part Renders Reveal Design Clues

Apple is expected to unveil its first wearable device tomorrow, but we’re still in the dark about what the alleged iWatch will actually look like. We’ll probably get an official look at the new gadget at Tuesday’s big event, and today we may be getting an early peek at the fabled iWatch.

Today’s leak includes a fresh batch of alleged renders of the iWatch, revealing some potential components and design for the rumored device. Two images of the gadget’s display housing unit appear to show a simple square design with a circular cutout on the bottom. That hole will apparently hold a “sensor plate” that touches your wrist and presumably measures your vitals.

The information was first published on Reddit and also offers up a few possible specs and features for Apple’s alleged smartwatch. Apparently it will offer a flexible touch display that could “add a new dimension to the UI.” The iWatch may also offer a water-resistant design, a battery that lasts over a day and will come in eight different models with two sizes and four color options.

We’re excited to see what Apple has planned for its first wearable, and recent reports have us thinking the iWatch could be another big hit for Cupertino. Then again, the squarish design pictured above doesn’t look particularly impressive, so it may all depend on how the company can tweak iOS to work on a new smaller screen.
