The oft reliable @evleaks has struck again with another great leak (although I’m already a little sceptical but I’ll explain later). His latest leak gives us our first potential look at the HTC Smart Watch, a watch that HTC has said they are working on. Similar to the Gear Live and G Watch, the HTC Watch utilizes a square display rather than a circular one. The band looks to be made of metal and looks like your traditional metal watch band.
While I’m sure that the HTC Watch will look something like this (there’s only so much you can do with a watch) I’m not sure this leak is legitimate. My main concern is with the content displayed on the screen. Google made it pretty clear that they would not allow any customization to any of their new platforms: Android Auto, Android TV and Android Wear. While it’s possible that this is just a watch face, the fact that it’s showing content as well makes it look much more like a skin than a watch face.
Again, this could be the actual design of the watch and just a poor choice for the screen content but it leaves me to question the validity.
