The age of the iWatch is nearly upon us. It's been years since Apple launched an entirely new product, but, according to reports, its eagerly awaited smartwatch is set to be introduced this fall. The Wall Street Journal reports that the iWatch will be available in different designs and screen sizes. Plus, it will feature over 10 sensors that can record data, including health measurements. After the recent preview of the upcoming iOS 8 (which will feature the brand-new app HealthKit), it's clear that monitoring user health will be an important initiative for Apple's future.

While many of its competitors have already launched their versions of the smartwatch, overall sales of these devices have struggled. Now, it's up to Apple to launch the product into the mainstream, much like the now-ubiquitous iPad did for the tablet. It's shaping up to be a big fall for the tech giant; Apple is also expected to release the long-rumored iPhone 6 in September or October.
