Another player could be entering the crowded wearables market. According to Forbes, HTC may be launching a fitness tracker alongside its anticipated One M9 smartphone in March.
All signs point towards the Taiwanese phone maker showing off the next-generation One on March 1, given its invite to a media event in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress. Now an unnamed source has told Forbes that HTC is working with partner Under Armour to produce a fitness band.
The One M9 may ship with Under Armour's UA Record fitness tracking app, which could sync with the wearable to let wearers monitor health data.
So far, the rumored One M9 specs have been less than impressive. HTC is expected to leave the screen resolution at 1920 x 1080 but bump up the next One's rear camera to 20 megapixels. The company is also rumored to be ditching the front BoomSound speakers that have proven popular on its previous devices. We'll be live on the scene at HTC's event in Spain, so stay tuned for the full details.
