The long-awaited wearable is compatible with iOS 8-powered iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and will go on sale next year starting at $349 USD.

Apple Watch is the smartwatch of the Cupertino giant, although everyone was expecting for this wearable to be called iWatch. According to the company's CEO Tim Cook, this is "Apple's most personal device ever" and has "a mile long" list of features.

Apple Watch will hit the market in early 2015 in three "collections" - Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport, and Apple Watch Edition. The wearable will also be available in two sizes, 1.5-inch and 1.65-inch. Although the official press release does not reveal much of its specs, it is rumored that the Apple Watch will pack 512 MB of memory and 8 GB of internal storage.

The Digital Crown of the Apple Watch is "an innovative way to scroll, zoom and navigate fluidly, without obstructing the display" and the wearable packs a Retina display with Force Touch, a technology able to distinguish between a tap and a press. In terms of connectivity, this smartwatch features both WiFi 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth 4.0 to easily pair with supported iPhone handsets (iPhone 5 or higher, loaded with iOS 8).

Apple Watch will offer several color choices for the band, including blue, white, and pink. It will go on sale starting at $349 USD. For more details, please check the press release below.
