Is this what HTC's first Android Wear smartwatch looks like?
In case you were hoping that HTC’s first smartwatch would feature a round design (like Motorola’s Moto 360), it looks like you’ll be in for a disappointment.

@evleaks today posted a render of what is said to be an HTC Android Wear smartwatch (quite possibly the company’s very first model). Reportedly, the “hardware is 100% faithful reproduction,” while the Sense UI-like skin isn’t real. As you can see on the left, the alleged HTC Android Wear watch doesn’t look too different from Samsung’s Gear Live and LG’s G Watch (both of which are already available to buy). However, the HTC device seems to have a metal wristband, whereas the watches made by Samsung and LG normally come with plastic / rubber bands.

There’s no word on what features the HTC Android Wear smartwatch will bring, and neither on when we should expect to see it in stores. Anyway, according to previous rumors, HTC intends to release several wearable devices before the end of the year, most likely including this smartwatch. We’re expecting the device to cost around $200, as this seems to be the standard price for smartwatches. Let's hope more details about this will be available soon.

True

If this had those speakers, it would be great clarity music and calls.

Don't give them ideas! There are enough idiots in public places playing music through their phones on loudspeaker as it is!

Still hate the square design though. but even though its not a actual watch by HTC metal band is very nice looking compare to the other smart watches. but nothing beats MOTO 360. I'll have to wait till SONY ANNOUNCES their smart watch 3 before buyin the 360

Ermm.. I may be the only one who notice it but... Why does the top left icon on the watch face says Peter Chou (CEO of HTC), saying "Evleaks, I got a new photo for you"

Really, folks, did you even bother reading the article? "The hardware is 100% faithful reproduction, while the Sense UI-like skin ISN'T real."

Look at those Bezels, there's not even an HTC Logo. And the Sense UI... Evleaks is not so true...

Ugly as hell, if you are not bezeless, put a metal frame above it please... it's so easy.

Exactly. I don't understand why they don't cover the black frame around the display.

What good is an HTC watch if the only time it ever shows is 10:08?
