Report: iWatch to have October launch, curved OLED touchscreen

Apple’s rumored iWatch will launch in October with a curved OLED touchscreen, Nikkei Asian Review reports. The report, which only refers to the device as “a wearable health-monitoring device” and “watch-like wearable gear,” claims iWatch will run on iOS 8 and use biometric sensors to collect health data. Apple plans on selling 3-5 million units monthly, and the company has partnerships with the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic “to develop specific ways of analyzing the collected data and applying it to actual health management.” It’s also reported that Apple and Nike have “likely” agreed to integrate their services, which is not unexpected — Nike has stopped production of its FuelBand fitness tracker, which would have been a competitor.

Update: Re/code is corroborating the Nikkei report, claiming that Apple does indeed plan on scheduling a special event for its wearable device in October.
