HTC Might Have Leaked Upcoming Android Wear Smartwatch in Official Video

HTC_Design_-_Behind_the_Scenes_-_YouTube

Another leak out of HTC is making the rounds, this time surrounding its reportedly upcoming smartwatch powered by Android Wear. Android Wear is Google’s smartwatch platform, which is already available running on the Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch smartwatches.

The leak is taken from an official design video which HTC released, focusing on the company’s unique take on hardware design. While a few narrators are going on about HTC’s craftsmanship, the camera focuses on a worker at his station, going over a few 3D images, with a smartwatch in plain view sitting next to him. Is it HTC’s upcoming Android Wear watch? It very well could be. 

This is not the first mumbling of an HTC-made Android Wear device, as a reported render of the device was leaked not too long ago from @evleaks. While not much information was given alongside the leaked render, this new leak does not offer much either, besides the squared look.

htc-smartwatch

To check out the full sequence, give the video below a quick watch (pun intended). It is short, running about a minute long, but keep your eyes peeled around the 0:35 mark for a few glimpses at the design.

Throw your thoughts below in the comments.

    Does anyone believe these “leaks” are leaks anymore or that companies are planting this stuff in places for marketing purposes only… leak after leak after leak after leak

    What’s the point of a smart watch if you just leave it charging on a stand on your desk? You can do that with your phone.

  • Colts5609

    Yawn….another smart watch. Might just be me, but I am as excited for smart watches as I was for 3D TV. Really don’t care anymore, I care just enough to comment.

      So she is a hoe?

      • Chris Stuart

        1) a hoe is a garden tool, a ho is a female of questionable morals who may or may not sell her body.
        2) She wouldn’t be a ho, she would probably be a web cam worker.

    Sorry but this smart-watch stuff is already getting so old. I can go out and buy a real watch that will outperform any of these in terms of battery life and spend way less money doing it. This is a gimmick end of story. Last fall I almost walked out of the Verizon store when the lady rep was trying to sell me on the galaxy gear and after telling her 2 or 3 times that I was not interested in spending $300 more for a dumb watch that I would never use she then gave up but not before I started to get mad at her. I told her that if she did not have a Note 3 in white that I would be on my way out the door. I ended up returning the Note 3 back to that same store a few short days later and ended up keeping what I feel is a better performing phone that Samsung Note 2. FAIL ON VERIZON AND SMART-WATCHES at least for me.

    • sirmeili

      So do you have a dumb phone because it can outlast your smartphones battery life and spend less money doing it?

      • pyro74boy .

        For the record I get great battery life out of my almost 2 year old Note 2 I can easily go 2 days plus on pretty heavy use and worst case scenario one full day of use with the battery meter still showing %30 to %40 percent by the time I end up plugging it in before I go to bed at night. Not bad when I do a lot of streaming video all day long. Trying to compare a smart-phone to a smart-watch is not really comparing Apples to Apples in terms of battery performance so what are you trying to prove to me?

        • sirmeili

          I can get a week out of dumb phone (or more). You said that they were dumb because “I can go out and buy a real watch that will outperform any of these in terms of battery life and spend way less money doing it.”

          So how is that different than if I say “I can go out and buy a real phone that will outperform any of these in terms of battery life and spend way less money doing it.”

          You said they were dumb because you could get a cheaper watch that had better battery life. The same is with your phone, but yet you still decided to get a smart phone.

          Smartphone cost > dumb phone cost
          Smartwatch cost maybe > dumb watch cost (some watches actually cost more)
          Smartphone battery < dumb phone battery
          Smartwatch battery dumb phone functionality
          Smartwatch functionality > dumb watch functionality.

          You say it’s getting old, but you obviously don’t care too much about battery life when it comes to a device that you actually want to buy. I understand if you don’t want one because you don’t see the functionality, but the reasons stated were in direct opposition to how you chose another electronic device.

          • pyro74boy .

            You forgot to mention that some of these real watches [non smart-watches] can go a year or longer before you ever have to do ANYTHING with the battery. LOL Lets see a smart-watch outperform that. It was very silly of you to try to call my out on this because I was NEVER once trying to compare the battery life of a smart-phone vs the battery life of a smart-watch. Nice try but EPIC FAIL ON YOU.

            I love it when someone like you tries to use my own words against me but still gets burned in the end. LOL

            So you go right ahead and waste your money on these stupid gimmicks but your not selling me on any of these smart-watches at least not at over $200 or $300 bucks.

            Nice try but you still failed at trying to put words in my mouth. LOL

          • sirmeili

            Call it an epic fail if you want (though I will disagree with you). People seem to agree with me (at least 2 on my previous comments), while yours has not been upvoted. For whatever weight that may hold (perhaps none at all).

            You were complaining that a once a day recharge on an electronic device was “too much” for you. Which you admit, you have to do on occasion with your phone. Also, with the moto360 nor this supposed HTC watch yet to be released, you really don’t know if they will last longer. Most smart phones on the market today have this same restriction. Are you also calling all those devices crap because they have to be charged once a day? Perhaps you are, and if so. then kudos. You only get to charge your phone every other day.

            So I’m sorry that you don’t see why you are in part being somewhat hypocritical on the subject. What you call “gimmicks”, I call quick and easy access to notifications, search, and navigation. All “Gimmicks” I currently have on my smartphone, which I use. The smartwatch will only make it easier for me to access those functions.

            Also, I’m not so sure how you feel I was “burned”. I’m feeling quite cool over here :)

          • pyro74boy .

            I take no issue with people disagreeing with any of my opinions that is your right but you went out of your way to try to put words in my month trying to make it look like I was comparing the the difference in battery life with smart-watch vs a smart-phone. This was you trying to compare the difference in battery performance not me that’s not the same thing. [That’s where you got burned.] LOL

            You’re not really saying all that much because I can do every single thing that you can do but the difference is that I can do it on a bigger screen and don’t have to focus on a little tiny screen. This is why laugh when I see people trying to brag that they have one of these smart-watches telling everyone about all the cool stuff that they can do on their little tiny watch when I can say wow look at me I can do the same exact things on my bigger and better screen and I did not have to spend an extra $300 plus dollars doing it. LOL

            You have the right to your opinion but so do I.

          • MistaButters

            He never said you were comparing the two. He used the comparison to demonstrate your hypocrisy, by showing your reason to not buy a smartwatch directly conflicted with you owning a smartphone.

          • pyro74boy .

            Really I don’t ever remember asking you for your opinion. LOL This site is full of all kinds of haters I run into them it seems like more and more on this site and all this based on the fact that I was posting my true feelings about how I feel. As I have to keep on repeating myself I love the D.L site but the comments are full of very rude people who act like it’s sin to not have their own opinion about ANYTHING and then try to gang up on someone like me based on the fact that they don’t agree with what someone said.

            Really people I proved my points right or wrong or anywhere in between. So at this point there was no need for you people to reply back to me crying. LOL

          • MistaButters

            I know you didn’t ask. Also, it’s not that I am a “hater”. It’s not even that I think smart watches are awesome. I don’t own one. I was just clarifying his point because it seemed like you didn’t understand what he was saying.

            Had you said you weren’t interested because you thought they were too expensive for what features or functionality they offer, that would have made sense. A lot of people don’t want to pay $300 for another notification screen.

          • pyro74boy .

            It’s so hard to tell who is hating and who ins,t on this site. I just think it’s so funny how people start to attack others [not saying you] based on only difference of opinion. I really think that the comments have been taken over by the trolls and It’s sad because everyone has the right to their own opinion.

            What you just said is how I feel. I think sometimes [a lot of times] people just don’t understand what I meant when I say things. I just think this site would be much better off with out all the hate in the comment space. I don’t even taker issue with people who disagree with me but when they result to attacking me to try to prove their point that’s when I always take issue. Opinions are really the same because everyone has one.

          • we-see-through-you

            its clear that pyro74boy wants a smartwatch… he just can’t justify purchasing one and its HURTS… lmbo… go work a few more hours at your job and purchase the device… we ALL can see that you want it…

          • Guest

            If I wanted it I

          • pyro74boy .

            If I wanted it I would already have one. It’s not a matter of money. Why is it that people like you ASSUME that just because I said that I’m not rich that this automatically means that I can’t afford to buy them? What I did mean by this is that for $300 dollars I would much rather spend my money on something that is truly worth that amount of money. Really stop hating just because we don’t agree on this and have A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION.

          • Mech_Engr_09

            You’re a real douche. Why don’t you go and cry some more because you can’t afford a smartwatch and justify your $20 walmart watch. Who gives a fcuk if you have to charge the thing everynight? Is it really that hard for you to literally take 5 extra seconds to do something. Lazy ash doucheebag. I think you need your assss beat.

          • pyro74boy .

            You’re a perfect example of the kind of hater that runs his mouth over D.L and tries to insult my intelligence to try to justify your points.LOL You’re also very dumb for putting words in my mouth because I NEVER ONCE claimed to not be able to afford to buy a Smart-watch. I said I wasn’t rich and that I was not WILLING to buy one and that I did not want to waste my money on one that’s not at all the same as not being able to afford to buy one you little child. Attacking me won’t help your case any. You replied to me crying & insulting me. Get lost punk,

          • imronburgundy

            Correct punctuation is key.

          • pyro74boy .

            So sorry I’m not a perfect speller such as yourself. I have a reading and writing disability. This is not an excuse this is how it truly is. Did it make you feel better to insult me based on the fact that I have a disability? I can’t help how I was burn.

            Really people get lost if you have to hate on someone like me and jump off topic.

          • Mech_Engr_09

            Awe someone is getting upset. Better get him a tissue. We are gonna see tears soon.

          • pyro74boy .

            I’m not crying LOL But you sure are when you have to lie and claim that I can’t afford something.LOL

    • NexusMan

      This comment is old. If it tells time it’s a real watch. You can also buy a rotary phone that outlasts your smartphone’s battery. Your point?

      • pyro74boy .

        My point was and still is that I’m not going spend anything over $100 bucks [TOPS] for a device that is full of gimmicks. These smart-watches are a waste of money in my opinion and are made for people who make tons of money to flush down the toilet. I’m still lucky enough to have my unlimited data plan and if it was up to the lady rep I was dealing with I would have spent $1000 bucks [before tax] on hardware because in order for me to keep my unlimited data plan I have to pay full retail price for the phone of my choice. I guess if I was rich and made out of money and had all kinds of extra money laying around then I might be willing to buy one. But that is not the case here,

        • Daistaar

          “My point was and still is that I’m not going spend anything over $100 bucks [TOPS] for a device that is full of gimmicks.”

          • Mickey A Valentine

            Yes, yes he did.
            My Armitron only lasts 3 months on a button battery.. If only my smart devices were wind up like my pocket watch. Gosh darn.

          • pyro74boy .

            The S-pen is very useful and if you ever used one you would agree.

          • Daistaar

            I’ve used it numerous times. Doesn’t do anything a finger doesn’t. Plus I’ve seen people lose them and still have a fully function device. Seems like a gimmick to me.

          • pyro74boy .

            You remind me so much of the experts claiming that there is not going to be a market for the Note line of phones. LOL Now everyone and their mom is copying the design of the Note phones including the next iphone6 [Or whatever it’s going to be called.]

            The S-pen is a dream for drawing pictures And really if you really must go there then I can name all kinds of different features that some people might think as being a gimmick on each and every single one of these phones regardless of who made it so I’m sorry but I still fail to see your point.

        • Mech_Engr_09

          Then get a better job where a $229 isn’t going to make or break you. Broke asssss fool.

          • pyro74boy .

            When did I ever claim $229 was going to break me? Not willing to pay this much for something and not being able to pay for something are two completely different things you moron. Yes it’s true I’m not rich but I have more then enough money to cover a $300 or $400 dollar smart-watch so stop putting words in my mouth and assuming that I can’t afford to buy one because this is simply not true.

          • Mech_Engr_09

            I have one on my wrist right now as well as a shiny new g3 full retail. So suck a dik asshat

          • pyro74boy .

            I spent over $700 cash [not including accessories] for the Note 3 and had more then enough money left over to cover the $300 price tag for the Samsung Smart-watch so please tell me what the hell it is that you’re trying to prove to me Mr hater?

            LIKE I SAID BEFORE NOT WILLING TO BUY SOMETHING AND NOT BEING ABLE TO AFFORD TO PAY FOR SOMETHING ARE TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THINGS YOU JERK.

            So I have no idea what it is that you trying to brag to me about. LOL

          • Mech_Engr_09

            Wah quit cher bichin phagboy. So you’re telling me you bough the note 3 and the galaxy gear, but you can’t see the point in buying a g3 and a g watch? I smell b.s.

            WOW I have a job thank you very much and for the record the Note 2 is by far the best phone I have ever owned regardless of what you think. LOL Not saying that there are not newer and better phones out there because I’m not a fan-boy.

            Happy hating and happy trolling LOL

    • Robert Crotty

      um….. $300, is around what you will spend on a nice, dependable watch. I have a Michael Kors that was $225, and multiple Fossil watches that are around there and even more expensive…

      • pyro74boy .

        I would much rather spend this money on a real watch and the battery life will be the difference between night and day in terms of performance. I want to be sold on this idea of the smartwatch but so far not so good.

        i think they’re gonna do what they did with the moto x. Start it off priced way too high, kill their sales for it and offer up all kinds of discounts and price cuts months after it’s been released and piss the people off that did buy it full price.

        • Bryan Mills

          I still don’t see why people are excited for this or the new Moto X. Their pricing isn’t going to change, nothing new added, and Lenovo will be owning them soon.

          • sirmeili

            My motoX is performing like a champ. It has not slowed down once in the 8 months I’ve owned it (like every other phone I’ve had), and the software updates just keep making it better. Lenovo or not, I plan on getting the MotoX+1 when it comes out unless the go back to their old ways of adding a bunch of crap on the device (bloat). I may have paid the same for my phone as a “faster” alternative but the phone feels no slower to me than those other phones. So I basically paid the same amount for what I considered the same performance. I don’t really care what the details are to make that happen, it just is.

            Also, I consider Lenovo an innovator in the laptop space (The Yoga series), and I am hoping they continue to allow Motorola to innovate in their own space (Which Lenovo already stated they would let Motorola operate as a separate company).

          • Mech_Engr_09

            I love how people who own the moto x always start their comments with ” I’ve had the moto x for x number of months and it runs like a champ/other douchey noun, I love it so much. It makes me doubt whether I want to have kids or just buy a crib for my moto x.” I picture you there clutching the phone looking like this….

          • sirmeili

            I’m so sorry that you can’t take my experience as what it is. If my phone ran like crap (like my Gnex eventually did), trust me I would be the first one to say it. Perhaps you are jealous, I don’t know. Yes, I like my phone. Yes, I plan on getting the next MotoX (I’ve always favored Motorola Phones, though I moves away from them after the OG droid for obviously reasons).

            One of the biggest complaints I hear about other phones is that they start to lag after a while or after an update (or even have some lag immediate even though they have the “best specs”). Mine has yet to do that, so if you think that makes me sound douchey, then so be it. I’m a douche.
