According to a new report, the often rumored #HTC smartwatch will finally see the light of the day in February next year. The company is already invested in the fitness wearables segment with the #Grip fitness band, launched in partnership with Under Armour.
The revelation about the HTC smartwatch was made by Evan Blass a.k.a @evleaks, who is a popular figure in the industry and has insider information about products. Considering that a February date is being pitched, it’s safe to assume that the company will release the smartwatch during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (February 22-25).
It goes without saying that the smartwatch will be running Android Wear, which should make it an attractive offering. Evleaks has very little in the means of confirmation right now, so we’re going to take this report with a grain of salt until there’s some conclusive evidence to prove the report’s legitimacy.
A smartwatch made by HTC could just be the remedy for the company and its current misfortune, although we feel the timing will be very crucial. What do you think about a potential HTC smartwatch?
