HTC looks like it'll be releasing a smartwatch soon. The phone manufacturer has announced that it's working on its own wearable computing solution called the One Wear. The target launch date is late this summer or early fall.
TKTechNews reported on Friday that some people already have access to the device. With Google working on its own platform for smartwatches, Samsung's Gear line already available and rumored devices from manufacturers like Apple apparently on the way, the smartwatch space might be the next major electronic battle ground. In Q1 of this year alone, smartwatch shipments jumped over 250 percent.
So far, Android has taken a strong lead and runs on more than half of all devices. As the name implies, HTC's One Wear will be running Android Wear and generally set to compete against the Motorola 360, also set to come out later this year. With the battle over what people wear around their wrists set to heat up in the coming months, just about anyone could still take the gold.
