Wrist wars: HTC is working on a smartwatch too
According to Bloomberg's source, HTC has forged a smartwatch based on Qualcomm's Toq (pictured above), which caught our eye at IFA last year thanks to its innovative colour E-Ink Mirasol display.
If true, HTC's smartwatch will easily best the Galaxy Gear and Sony Smartwatch 2 in the battery life department, earning it major practicality brownie points.
HTC is also reportedly working on a Google Now-powered watch, along with an smart bracelet that plays music (and presumably tracks your steps).
There's no guarantee that HTC will show off its hi-tech wristwear at Mobile World Congress, but we'll do our best to get a sneak peak at the front lines when we land in Barcelona next week.
