HTC Android Wear smartwatch render makes its way online


HTC was among the initial batch of Android Wear partners announced by Google earlier this year, but so far we’ve yet to see any images of HTC’s device or get any spec details about it. That’s changing today, as a render has surfaced that claims to give a preview of what the HTC wearable will look like.

@evleaks today posted an “artist reproduction” of HTC’s Android Wear device, showing a smartwatch with a square face and a metal band. It’s worth noting that the screen is not accurate and just for fun, the hardware shown in this render is said to be a “100% faithful reproduction.”

Considering HTC’s history of creating quality Android hardware like the One (M7) and One (M8), there’s understandably a lot of hype surrounding HTC’s impending Android Wear device. The unit shown in this render doesn’t appear to have any super amazing features or anything like that, but since this is just a reproduction, it’s probably not a bad idea to hold off on making any judgments on HTC’s smartwatch until we get a look at the real deal.

What features do you hope to see included in HTC’s Android Wear device?

    Round will win. Square is easier so earlier but round will win. Comfier on wrist and looks less geek.

    I don’t like it at all. HTC must design it like m7 or m8 design understanding, simple and elegant. This is looks like cheap China made trying to look quaility but seeing not kind of design. I don’t have shape preference, round or square but it must be useful and elegant as i say. If this is the result, HTC will lost the smartwatch race.

      It’s a reproduction render. Don’t make instant judgment. Did you even read the article?

      And you can’t “lost” a race. You lose a race.

    TBH, very HTC-style render. Metal build and super thick bezel.
