HTC has been known for doing things differently. Earlier this year, the company announced the arrival of the GoPro-like device in the form of RE rugged camera - and they recently confirmed plans to jump into the highly covered wearable segment.
Although the M8 maker hasn't revealed any specific details, but promised something "very different from anything currently on the market." That simply means that HTC is not coming up with a regular touch enabled smart watch, just like the Apple Watch or Motorola's Moto 360.
While HTC has previously claimed to be working on a smartwatch, the company recently revealed its wearable devices had been delayed.
Well, it seems that HTC's futuristic wearable is not expected to be made available to users until Q1.
Whether it's called the HTC Watch, HTC One Watch or something else, we've yet to see the device in full action.
So, we've collected all the latest gossip we've heard right here. Here's everything we know so far about HTC's upcoming wearable device.
