HTC One smartwatch reportedly coming this February

HTC One smartwatch reportedly coming this February
Unlike other relevant smartphone makers, HTC has yet to launch a smartwatch, despite the fact that rumors about such a device have been around for quite some time. However, things may finally change in a couple of months.

According to @evleaks, HTC fans will have a "One watch" to call their own this February, though it's not clear where and for how much the device is expected to be released.

Last year, we heard that HTC's first smartwatch could feature a circular display - and we won't be surprised if it does, seeing how more and more round smartwatches are gaining popularity. According to a recent rumor, the upcoming HTC smartwatch is codenamed Halfbeak. There's little information about its features, though it's probably safe to assume that it runs Android Wear. Also, its screen might have a 360 x 360 pixel resolution.

Since Mobile World Congress 2016 will be held between February 22 and February 25, HTC might want to announce and launch its first smartwatch then. We're really curious to see this alleged smartwatch, especially since HTC has taken its sweet time developing it. What about you? Do you think HTC can make a smartwatch to rival the best that are already out there?

P.S.: The smartwatch seen above is just a generic watch used to promote Android Wear, not an HTC product.

"Unlike other relevant smartphone makers" since when is HTC relevant nowadays?

Even BlackBerry is relevant. You're confusing relevancy with momentary success. Apple almost went bankrupt and disappeared, but they were always relevant (for example).

After wasn't ever relevant and to let you know I did want to buy stocks back in 92 when it was still in the 7 inch floppy and going under and I used to always tell people will be back bigger and better than anybody because I like them back then used to be able to run organ trail when back in school

Hmm... I wouldn't bother if I were them. I think that smartwatches will be a very tough market in the future for smartphone OEMs, both because people cannot see their usefulness but also because more traditional Watch manufacturers are joining the game. I have had already three smartwatches, one Sony Smartwatch, one Sony Smartwatch 2 and now an LG G Watch R, but for my next one I'm eyeing a TAG Heuer Connected, or, for much less, a Fossil Q Founder. I don't think I'd revert back to Sony for a smartwatch again any time soon, because I prefer my smartwatch to be first a watch and secondarily a bit smarter. I think that buying an HTC Watch would be even more unlikely.

Say that you would never want a Sony Smartwatch again because you want something smart is really dumb on your part. First of all the Sony Smartwatch 3 was the first Android Wear watch to use a quad core 1.2 ghz ARM processor. Second it was the first Android Wear watch bring GPS, WiFi, and use a tranflective display. Lastly all Android Wear including the SW3 have 512 MB of ram and 4 gb of storage (other than LG Urbane LTE). So saying you want something smarter is really dumb on your part, especially when it has the hardware and specs to rival any Smartwatch currently on the market. Looks however are another thing. If you don't like square and prefer a round watch, then sure. Go for it, but to say you want something smarter is really dumb on your part.

Lol it's going to be a super brick with build quality issues for sure. If they can't even remove that black bezel, how on earth are they going to miniaturize a watch?! This is going to be hilarious.
