“If the rumors are true, Apple may unveil a wearable device along with its new iPhone at an event on Sept. 9,” Nick Statt and Donna Tam write for CNET. “But will that wearable be the long-rumored “iWatch,” a wrist-based smartwatch built off Apple’s iOS mobile operating system that aims to take on challengers from Google, LG, Motorola and Samsung? If it isn’t the iWatch, just what will Apple CEO Tim Cook and his team introduce in the wearables market?”
Statt and Tam write, “If Cook doesn’t unveil a smartwatch in September, company watchers say there are at least four other ways Apple can get into the wearables game.”
Four ‘iWatch’ alternatives Apple could unveil on September 9th:
1. A plain ol’ fitness tracker
2. iPod Nano refresh
3. Siri-connected headset or ear buds
4. Smart jewelry
