    Google translated from a russian newspaper "Izvestia". Apple filed an application for trade mark "iWatch" with the Rospatent.

    So it's pretty much confirmed now, Apple is working on it.

    I think there is a chance Apple will announce it on Monday. The WWDC invite with the roman numerals, and one side of the W cut down looks like a watch hand. I've been thinking about it, and Apple's watch has to appeal to both men and women... it has to look like a fashion accessory, otherwise they will hugely limit their market. It definitely won't be like the pebble.

    I think Apple's watch watch will be similar in form to this one:

    No. It isn't "pretty much confirmed". Apple has done similar actions for products that they never produced before. Ever hear of the iSlate? Apple bought that too.

    From here

    Simply put, we cannot base Apple's intentions based on this action alone. Especially when the only sources of these rumors are the same guys that have said that Apple will make a Television.
