Quick Take: Cramer: iWatch Equals Disruptor

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Is Apple (AAPL - Get Report) working on an iWatch device? If so, TheStreet's Jim Cramer and Debra Borchardt break down how it will affect the tech giant.

It seems as though the question is no longer whether Apple is developing an iWatch, but rather, will consumers wear one?

Borchardt was quick to note that many investors seemed to think the same thing about tablets, only to see exponential growth for multiple years after its introduction.

Although wearable devices now seem to be in, it's still a relatively new segment with consumer technology.

But that didn't stop Cramer from saying that it will help Apple turn the corner and at least give the bulls and analysts some ammo. Right now they've pretty much got nothing.

He also cited the "glut of iPhones" that appear to be oversaturating the market and that iPads and tablets are not growing at the same explosive rate as a couple of years ago.

But the problem: The iWatch likely won't be available until sometime in 2014.

According to Cramer, Apple needs this product now, not next year, but a new product will at least be encouraging to see. Hiring has recently accelerated, which is also a promising sign, he added.
