HTC’s smartwatch possibly called the One Wear, tipped for a late August release

    I might just pass on LG and Motorola’s offers in favor of this. At worst, if this will turn out to be poop, I’ll get the Moto or LG later (perhaps at a discount).

    Bring on the sexiness HTC!

      Looks like MS is also going to release one, but it will be cross platform for Windows, Android and iOS.

      Lots of choices coming. Hopefully some of them are worth buying.

      Don’t forget that the rumour mill believes that Apple may release a smartwatch product soon too.

      I’m not an Apple fanboy at all. However, I must admit that Apple is often good at taking a concept and making it “work”.

    • It’s Me

      What Apple has been good at is entering an established category and then disrupting it by taking it in a direction others weren’t going. They did that with iPod, iPhone and iPad. All established categories that Apple disrupted with something different. They gain attention by disrupting the status quo.

      I’m not yet convinced they’ll do they same with “smart” watches, but I do think they’ll try. Wearables is a new category, so everybody is doing their own thing and it’s hard to disrupt the status quo when there isn’t yet a status quo to disrupt.

      Anyhow if Apple come out with one its be only compatible with ios device so its worthless… i prefere to have one thats work with multiple platform.

      From the sounds of it then, you’ll have to choose from a third party (i.e. Fitbit or pebble) or Microsoft. All of the first party ones seem locked to a platform. Samsung’s are even more restricted, to only certain phone models.

      That’s now what I have seen in the rumors of the Lg and moto model..
      Even the Lg rep told us it’s would be compatible with android and ios..

      Also we use the Samsung gear on all our android just need a special apk.

    • It’s Me

      I guess we’ll have to see. It would be odd not to support ios, just from a financial point of view.

    Am I the only one around here who doesn’t want a smart watch?

      Some people like to walk, others like to run. One isn’t necessarily better than the other.

      I don’t either, but I could see why some like it.

    • marorun1982

      I dont really want one myself..
      I prefere my Armitron thats has no battery and self recharge itself..
      But its could be useful.
