It was just last night that I was reporting on Android Wear and mentioning the LG G Watch and the Moto 360. I talked about how the Moto 360 appeared to be a superbly crafted piece of wrist bling. Rumour now has it that HTC will be releasing a smartwatch running Android Wear.
What makes this interesting is that we know how impressive HTC have been lately with the design and construction of their devices so it is exciting to think of what they may do with a smartwatch. The rumour comes courtesy of tktechnews has runs on the board after leaking a video of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active just a few days ago. This is what makes the rumour believable, plus we all want it to be true.
It’s been an interesting few days here in Taiwan.
Sources have provided more than rumors but a actual demo of the HTC smart watch.
I did ask for a name. Tentatively it’s called the One Wear, slated to launch late august early September of this year.
The design is round much like the Moto 360, will be available in a polycarbonate and metal flavors.
With HTC looking to enter the Android Wear game, maybe it seems a bit premature to be looking to leap head first into buying one of the first offerings. HTC can produce great looking hardware so I would assume they would be able to do the same with a smartwatch. It still waits to be seen whether they try and skin Android Wear. Android Sense Wear?
Does this rumour make you want to wait or will you just go out and buy an LG G Watch or Moto 360 the first chance you get? Which would you prefer, a smartwatch made by Moto 360, that we know looks amazing, or one made by HTC?
