HTC’s first Android Wear watch, codenamed “Halfbeak” internally, has leaked out ahead of its official debut. The device appears to have been designed in partnership with Under Armour with a seemingly rugged form factor and a focus on fitness.
HTC has reportedly been working on Halfbeak for over two years. Some reports claimed the device was initially scheduled to make its debut in the fall of 2014, but HTC told us in October of that year that it had been delayed so that the company could “get it right.”
Now it appears Halfbeak is closer than ever to making its official debut. Leaked images of the device confirm it will be powered by Android Wear, with a round face that boasts a 360×360 resolution. It also has three physical buttons on its right side, and sensors on its back.
Under Armour logos can be seen on the back and top side of the watch, all but confirming this is another product of the partnership between HTC and the U.S. sports clothing and accessory manufacturer which first started in early 2015.
Couple that with the rugged design of the watch, like its sturdy chassis and rubber strap, and it’s clear this will be a fitness-focused wearable. It’s still unclear when the device might become official, but now that images are leaking out, we should hear more soon.
