iWatch will have round face design, sources claim

Apple follows in steps of Moto 360

The Apple iWatch will use a round face design instead of a rectangular one, says Rosenblatt Securities analyst Brian Blair. Blair recently returned from a trip to Taiwan, where he says he picked up the iWatch information from supply chain sources. The design is said to be similar to that of the Moto 360, but with a "slimmer profile."

He adds that the device should go into production in July or August, and that there will be different models. That may include one for men and another for women.

Most smartwatches -- such as the Pebble and the Samsung Galaxy Gear -- have so far used flat rectangular displays. The Moto 360 is in fact the first smartwatch to be announced with a round face, and has garnered a lot of attention as a result. It will also be one of the first devices with Android Wear, a version of Android purpose-built for wearable electronics.
