HTC is reportedly set to launch three wearable devices at the upcoming Mobile World Congress, including a rumoured Google Now smartwatch.
The Taiwanese manufacturer would introduce a HTC smartwatch, based on Qualcomm’s Toq smartwatch and use that company”s Mirasol display, featuring Bluetooth connectivity and a music player, apart from an electronic bracelet that plays music.
Sources have revealed that another smartwatch that HTC is working on would be based on the Google Now service, The Verge reports.
Although the Google Now concept is promising, there hasn’t been any smartwatch in the market based on the concept and it was speculated last October that Google Now watch could be ”ready within months”.
It is unclear if the search firm itself would produce Google Now smartwatch or Google-owned HTC would unveil it under its banner.
HTC CEO Peter Chou said last year that wearables were ‘critical’ for the sinking company, but that its planned smartwatches had to meet a need to stop them being gimmicks, the report added.
