According to reports, Apple's iWatch, dubbed the Diet Watch, may not be available until 2015 globally. The watch equipped with the latest sensor technology could track calories and steps as well as heart rate.
Chinese analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that complexity of watch design is the reason behind the delay. However, the product from Apple's stable could be launched in October, alongside Apple's next IPAD MINI CASE.
Reports said iWatch would include more than 10 sensors to take health measurements and other data and access to features such as messages and notifications through integration with the iPhone and IPAD 4 CASE. A sweat sensor is believed to be one of the sensors on the watch.
In an attempt to boost the sales of the smart watch, the technology giant recently poached senior executive Patrick Pruniaux from Swiss luxury watch brand Tag Heuer.
iWatch is expected to compete with other smartwatches manufactured by Samsung, Sony and Qualcomm.
Apple applied for a trademark for the iWatch in Japan, a patent official said earlier this week.
It has also been revealed that Apple has signed up a host of sports star to try the wearable - including basketball star Kobe Brant, who was recently spotted at Apple's Cupertino campus.
