September Might Bring HTC Smartwatch As Well
Apparently, September will be a great month for all those who love geeky devices. Other than the iPhone 6 and iWatch rumored to be released on September 9, HTC might also be releasing its smartwatch in the same month. The news about HTC smartwatch coming in September was leaked by a new rumor page from China — @upleaks. The tweet also said that it will be coming to North America, Europe, Middle East, Asia, Japan, Brazil, Korea and Taiwan.
@upleaks further claimed that the smartwatch would run Android Wear software and it would be called HTC CWZ. No details about its specs and features were revealed.
However, @upleaks is a relatively new page and we are unsure about its credibility. Let’s see what we have heard about HTC smartwatch from trusted sources up till now.
HTC Chairwoman Cher Wang announced back in February that HTC smartwatch will be made available by Christmas. She added that HTC will be focusing on the battery life of their smartwatch as they are aware of the fact that people will not be taking off their watch to charge it after every few hours. Furthermore, she revealed that the smartwatch would tether to a smartphone via a Bluetooth, rather than working independently.
Another report suggested that HTC smartwatch will be named One Wear, and slated to launch in late August or early September.
Smartwatch industry has been joined by almost all of the major technology-devices manufacturers. LG G Watch R and Samsung Gear S were launched few days ago, while Motorola and Sony will also join the club soon. HTC is a little late to the party but their success largely depends on the design, cost and features that their smartwatch will offer.
People are praising the LG G Watch R because of its round design that is more stylish than other smartwatches. The design of the smartwatch is important in attracting sales — something HTC devices are well known for. We hope that their smartwatch will be as good as their One M8.
P.S. For all those geeks who are looking forward to other devices as well, you can expect iPhone 6, iWatch, Moto 360, Moto X+1 and Nexus 6/X to be released in coming months.
