September is shaping up to be a big month for Apple. In addition to reports that it will launch both 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch versions of its iPhone 6, Re/code’s John Paczkowski is now reporting that Tim Cook and crew will also unveil their highly anticipated wearable device on the same day. Paczkowski is exceedingly reliable when it comes to rumored reports, having also broken the story of the iPhone 6’s debut date as well as the dates of Apple events in the past few years, and so his iWatch report would seem to be about as solid as it gets. Still, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a similarly impressive track record when it comes to predicting Apple’s product announcements, claimed recently that production issues could push the iWatch’s debut to 2015.
The iWatch is perhaps the most anticipated smartwatch of the seemingly endless number of such devices that are expected to hit the market this year.

Apple’s iWatch is expected to take advantage of the company’s new HealthKit platform, a centralized location for fitness and health tracking, and could include everything from a heart-rate monitor to a sensor that monitors your exposure to UV rays.
