Apple’s iWatch to Come in Multiple Sizes, Pack 10 Sensors: WSJ

Apple is reportedly getting close to launching its much-rumored smartwatch. The Wall Street Journal reports that the tech powerhouse is working on a new device that will be available in “multiple screen sizes” and will pack “more than 10 sensors” to track users’ fitness. A flurry of reports suggest the device will be different from the company’s other gadgets in that it will be able to collect data without the need for a tethered mobile device.

The newest rumor adds to a recent New York Times report which indicated that Apple was testing new ways to charge its wearable without plugging it in. The WSJ suggest that production may begin in the coming weeks ahead of an October launch.
