MacRumors:

Japanese blog Macotakara points to a pair of reports in today’s edition of Taiwanese newspaper Economic Times addressing rumors surrounding Apple’s smart watch effort. According to the first report [Google translation], Apple has begun sampling 1.5-inch OLED displays from RITEK subsidiary RiTdisplay.

The report also claims that RITEK’s joint venture RitFast will be supplying the touch sensor technology for the watch.

The report today echoes a report in December that Apple had plans for RiTdisplay’s 1.5-inch displays, and also says that Intel is in the mix for Apple’s efforts. The report claims that the Cupertino device maker has hoped to use a 1.8-inch display for their smart watch. However, that display proved too unwieldy, and the company decided to go with the 1.5-inch size.

The second report [Google translation] is an overview of the smart watch industry, with “market rumors” floating that Foxconn already has orders for Apple’s smart watch in their pipeline, for what seems to be a small-scale trial, with order volumes around 1,000 units
