Supply chain sources reportedly told Chinese blog site that the watch would be Bluetooth-enabled and sport a 1.5-inch OLED screen.

This smart-watch may debut in the middle of next year.

Apple will not be the first company to release a smart watch, as Sony released one a few months ago for Android devices. With it, you can read your latest text messages, emails and status updates and see who’s trying to reach you, even when your phone’s at the bottom of your bag. You can also choose from loads of exciting new apps on Google Play to make sure to make your SmartWatch even smarter.

Customers have also expressed interest in an Apple made Smartwatch for their iOS device. The one feature lacking on Sony’s Smartwatch was the ability to receive calls on it. Apple may make this possible. Also, it will be interesting to see how Apple uses voice commands in their watch via Siri.

With their small and square design, previous versions of the iPod Nano have done double-duty as watches. Different manufacturers sell watchbands that you can attach to the Nano to wear it on your wrist.

Aside from displaying the time, the Nano can play music, display photos, and keep track of your fitness history.

Apple bumped up the size of the 2012 Nano so it can no longer serve as a watch. So perhaps the company could have a true smart watch in its sights as the next technology frontier to conquer.
