It is reportedly said that the Cupertino based tech titan is in fact testing two different prototypes of the iOS powered iWatch. Further, both these smartwatches are said to be equipped with a 100mAh battery. The battery capacity is far lesser than the one Samsung Galaxy Gear uses which is rated at 315mAh.

The Apple iWatch, the Chinese site says, will be able to support wireless charging from 3.2 feet away. PhoneArena interprets saying that the the wireless charging would not be based on Qi's standards, but would use a magnetic resonance system. In the same context, the same magnetic resonance technology is rumored to be used in Samsung's upcoming smartphones. Thus if you have multiple chargers, you could placed them around your home or office, they may be able to boost the battery whenever you come in range.

If the device gets launched at the expected date, it would surely come against Sony's Smartwatch2 and Samsung's Galaxy Gear.

However, the iWatch is one product which the company has not officially spoken about as of now. Thus nothing is confirmed which makes us take the news with a customary grain of salt.
