We’ve been preparing the watch product for so long,” Lee Young Hee, executive vice president of Samsung’s mobile business, said during an interview in Seoul. “We are working very hard to get ready for it. We are preparing products for the future, and the watch is definitely one of them.”

After all these rumor series, we are yet to pin-point the main features of wristwatch product coming from both tech giants. There are some analysts who are claiming that Apple’s ‘iWatch’ to be running on the iOS system and it will feature all the basic features that an iOS device brings to users hand. In the past, we have heard that Apple is facing an issue with iWatch battery in prototype model, and they are looking to drop some features of iOS system to make the final product more reliable for users in real market.
