According to Chinese site Tech.163, Apple is keen to take advantage of a smart watch that has been developed by Intel, and features a 1.5 inch OLED screen.

The report suggests the 'iWatch' could run a version of iOS, enabling it to easily download apps, and could even be available to buy next year.

Rumours of Apple's interest in a smart watch follow the extraordinary online success seen by the inventors of the Pebble watch, which connects to other smart gadgets via Bluetooth.

The creators of the Pebble claim the device can access GPS on a smartphone to track speed, distance and pace data for runners and cyclists, can act as a remote control for music, and alert the wearer to incoming messages with a vibration.

As an independent company, the inventors hoped to raise $10,000 via Kickstarter in order to develop the product, but so great was the interest that they pulled in $10m in funds and are set to begin production next year.
