Even though iWatch product has never been confirmed by Apple, it looks like the company is at least mulling to use the name. Apple has reportedly applied for iWatch trademark in several countries, which indicates the company’s interest to secure the name for itself. This could also mean that the iWatch is less than a year away.

Apple has filed applications for iWatch trademark in multiple countries, including Columbia, Japan, Mexico, Russia and Taiwan, according to multiple media reports (1, 2, 3). This is a clear indication that Apple is interested in owning the trademark and potentially means that Cupertino, California-based company intends to release a product under the name in a foreseeable future.

In the past, Apple applied for the iPhone trademark after a year of rumours and a couple of months ahead of the formal introduction. In case Apple follows the same pattern with iWatch, it could unleash the iWatch this fall.

"We believe iWatch is in a greater state of readiness, with the supply chain now waiting for the production go-ahead from Apple. We suspect the go/no-go decision will be made in June and are leaning toward a 'go' outcome at this time," said Glen Yeung, an analyst with Citi Bank’s investment arm.

Nothing particular is known about Apple iWatch or its capabilities. Apple did not comment on the news-story.

Pretty sure iWatch is already trademarked in all those countries, and most certainly in Japan, thanks to companies like the iWatchz. Lets see how Apple sues companies that already sell "iWatch" items because they just now applied for trademarks...
