Last year, a partnership has been announced between Android Wear and HTC but no suggestion of a smartwatch from the tech company based in Taiwan. HTC has now and then plans to devise a smartwatch for years and it seems that it will materialize sooner or later. Halfbreak has leaked and was posted by a Weibo user.
The Android Wear smartwatch will come from the Under Armour branding and will emphasize fitness. The smartwatch will be equipped with a rubber strap, a heart sensor, and other workout-friendly style, Engadget reported.
According to Phandroid's sources, HTC is already working on its first Android Wear smartwatch. Halfbreak will be built with a round display having a resolution of 360 x 360.
The round-faced smartwatch has the same resolution built on the circular dial of the Motorola Moto 360 timepiece. The back of the gadget displays the Under Armour logo and the company that sells clothing and accessories merged with HTC on Healthbox which is an associated fitness system, as cited by Phone Arena.
The timepiece's images do not include a date that is the reason why the leaked photos could not be determined if it's a prototype that has been canceled or the model itself that might soon go into manufacturing. An optical heart rate monitor is visible as well as a four-pin charging system.
Additional features of the smartwatch include pogo pins for charging and two physical buttons located on the side for navigation. The display has small metal bezels.
HTC held an event on September 29 where the company was rumored to unveil a "double flagship". The company launched the Butterfly 3 which is a worldwide version of its most highly-specified device. The HTC One M9+ Aurora was also launched which is an updated version of the HTC One M9+.
