Rumor: HTC Preparing To Launch Two Wearables Devices Next Month

August 29, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

By the time we hit the holidays, we’ll be swimming in so many wearables that we won’t know what to do with ourselves. As the first two Android Wear smartwatches launched earlier this summer, we’re due for a following from Motorola with the Moto 360 here soon as it’s believed to be getting shown off next week. Samsung launched the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo earlier this year in the Spring, and they just unveiled their new smartwatch the Gear S, which was supposed to be shown off at IFA next week as well. LG is also set to launch their new Android Wear smartwatch the G Watch R, which they unveiled recently, and ASUS as well as many others are set to lift the curtain on their wearables.

HTC is included in this grouping of OEMs attempting to get their wearables to market, and the most recent rumor is that HTC is not going to be launching just one wearable next month, but two wearable devices for us to ponder throwing our money at. Smartwatches and wearables are still trying to find their footing in the eye of mass consumers, and perhaps something we see from HTC will be one of the devices to accomplish the task of grabbing the attention of the mainstream market. The news of the rumor comes from Upleaks, a lesser known tipster who leaks tidbits about our favorite electronics via Twitter.

There aren’t a whole lot of details in Upleaks Tweets, but he does seem to mention a few pieces of information that are worth paying attention to. He mentions the alleged names(model numbers?)of the two HTC smartwatches, referring to the HTC CWZ smartwatch, powered by none other than Android Wear according to Upleaks, which he states is coming to multiple regions including the U.S. sometime in September. He also mentions in another tweet, the HTC WWY smartwatch coming in September, which he later follows up with a tweet stating that it might actually be more of a fitness tracker like Samsung did with the Gear Fit. Whether or not any of this information turns out to be true or not remains to be confirmed, but we won’t have to wait long to figure any of that out as IFA is just around the corner and only days away.
