We started this week with some big Apple news in the form of iOS 8’s debut, and now we’re ending the week with some another major report concerning the Cupertino firm.

Sources speaking to Re/code say that Apple is planning to hold a “special event” in October to introduce us to its first wearable device. Details on the device are still light, but it’ll reportedly take advantage of HealthKit and its ability to gather information related to a user’s health and fitness.

An Apple smartwatch device has been floating around the rumor mill for quite some time, but with the recent debut of HealthKit and the Health app, it’s looking increasingly like Apple’s wearable will focus more on collecting health data than the typical smartwatch. While we’ve yet to get any concrete evidence about the wearable’s features, it’s rumored that Apple has been toying with both wireless charging and curved glass for its device.

Are you interested in Apple’s oft-rumored wearable? What features do you hope to see included with it?
