HTC was meant to launch its first wearable very soon, but the company has delayed the launch until sometime in 2015.




The head of HTC America, Jason Mackenzie, spoke with Re/code today, where he said: "We had originally planned to have a wearable launch in this time frame. It ended up just not being ready". The article also had Leader of the HTC Creative Labs team, Drew Bamford, chime in, where he said: "When we come to market with our product we want to make sure the product has a strong point of view and there is a really compelling reason to strap it on your wrist." He added, "We honestly don't think anyone has gotten it right".


We should hopefully hear more at the press event dubbed "Double Exposure" later on today, where we should be greeted with some new handsets, the NVIDIA Tegra K1-powered Nexus 9 tablet, and the company's new action camera to compete with the new GoPro Hero4.
