HTC delays its first wearable after mixed user feedback

HTC Grip was expected to be available this past spring, but now with summer nearing the halfway point, HTC has confirmed that it has delayed the release until “later this year.” Originally reported by Engadget, HTC sent us the following statement:

“Through our partnership with Under Armour, we have continued to refine our vision and approach to the health and fitness category. Our goal is to offer best-in-class products for our customers and partners. After extensive wear testing and user feedback, we have decided to align GRIP with the entire product portfolio for health and fitness launching later this year. This will be a state-of-the-art comprehensive portfolio of products for this category powered by UA RECORD. We are excited to launch this new comprehensive product suite and will share further details as we get closer to launch.”

There is no indication what specific products HTC will launch, or how many wearables are included in the “new comprehensive product suite,” but HTC seems to be committed to bring something to market. Eventually.
