A new report from KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo says the iWatch won't enter production until late November. Kuo previously predicted that the device would enter mass production in late September.

“We have pushed back our estimated time of iWatch mass production from late-September to mid-/ late- November. We also lower our forecast of iWatch 2014 shipments by 40% to 3mn units,” Kuo wrote.

Apple's development of the iWatch is said to be more difficult due to new features that include a flexible AMOLED screen, a sapphire crystal cover, a much smaller form factor, and higher waterproof standards. In addition, the redesign of iOS for the smaller screen may be a difficult challenge.

"We believe developing the hardware and OS of iWatch will be a much more difficult task than for Apple’s existing products," said Kuo.

Apple is reportedly planning to debut the iWatch in October hiring TAG Heuer's sales director ahead of the launch. The watch is said to be available in a 'Sports' model and a 'Designer' model.

maybe wait to see how others are doing. Apple follows a lot but at least they get it right.
