So what on earth could it be?
After months and months of rumours and numerous smartwatches, fitness bands and virtual reality headsets being launched by other manufacturers while Taiwanese manufacturer HTC has lost out, HTC has finally give us a clue about what their wearable device is going to be.
Ready for it?…
…it won’t be a smartwatch.
Gee, thanks HTC. That really narrows it down.
This revelation came from a HTC spokesperson in contact with VentureBeat, who also said that HTC will work closely with other companies who have already done significant work in developing apps for activities such as fitness. To us, this means that it’s highly likely that HTC’s upcoming wearable will be a fitness band, and probably one which is compatible with a range of fitness apps from third-party app developers. It could also mean that HTC has partnered with a company who is already enjoying success in the fitness wearable market.
Another important piece of news about HTC’s wearable is that it’ll be announced in Las Vegas at CES 2015. We’ll have to wait until then to see what HTC has in store for the wearable market, so stay tuned…
