More rumors about the "iWatch" today, and they show just how risky it is to take them at face value. According to the latest report from DigiTimes (the same folks who relayed the news about the "August" release date just yesterday), three of Apple's suppliers have delivered samples of the flexible circuit boards intended for the iWatch.
The report also tells us that the unit is now expected scheduled for launch in September, a month later from what we heard yesterday from Taiwan's Economic Daily News. The September date admittedly makes more sense, since it means that Apple would likely announce the device at the same time that it announces the "iPhone 6."

The flexible circuit boards were allegedly delivered to Apple by suppliers Flexium Interconnect, Zhen Ding Technology Holding, and Career Technology.
New to the wonderful world of iWatch rumors? The long-anticipated device is thought to contain biometric sensors that can monitor stats such as heart rate and blood pressure, and Apple is thought to be releasing a new "Healthbook" app with iOS 8 to complement these features. In contrast to the iPhone 6, there have been no "leaked" prototypes of the device, so even its appearance should still come as a surprise come September. (Or August, if you believe the Economic Daily News.)
