Apple has just sent invitations to the press for an upcoming event on September,9th. The rumors have pinpointed the date already, so it is hardly a surprise.
Apple is expected to unveil the worst-kept under wraps iPhone the 4.7" iPhone 6. If we are to trust some previous rumors, the iWatch smartwatch will be joining the next generation iPhone as well.
With the recent LG G Watch R announcement and the upcoming Moto 360 smartwatch, Apple should be in a hurry to capture some of the wearable momentum. It has already snagged a former Tag Heuer's VP of sales, another proof the iWatch announcement is happening sooner than later.
Apple already announced it's first Watch last September along with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 PLUS but didn't release into markets. Today, Apple has sent out invitations for an event to be held March 9th in San Francisco where Apple Watch will be official released. The title of the event is "Spring forward," a reference to Daylight Savings Time which begins the day before.
While no launch date for the smartwatch has been announced, Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that the device won't launch before April. Additionally, Apple Store employees are said to be in training for the release of the timepiece.
Apple will reveal a launch price for the Watch at the event along with pricing for the mid-range and high-end versions of the device. Apple has said that the entry-level Apple Watch Sport will start at $349.
