Apple iWatch

The Apple iWatch is a rumored smartwatch project that operates as a small "wearable computing" smartphone-type device that's worn on a user's wrist. Apple put the rumors of the iWatch to rest on September 9th, 2014, when it officially released the device under the name of Apple Watch instead of Apple iWatch.

The iWatch is expected to be a wristwatch made of curved glass, possibly Willow Glass from Corning, that pairs, or connects, with another Apple iOS device like the iPhone or iPad to push iWatch-specific content to the device.

As far as features, the Apple iWatch can make calls, check caller ID and access visual voicemail, access stock and weather updates, provide fitness capabilities via pedometer and health monitoring sensors, offer map coordinates and directions, and more.
