HTC’s plans to enter the fitness wearable arena will have to wait a little while longer. The company has now confirmed that its plans to release a “fully integrated digital ecosystem of products”, in collaboration with Under Armour, have been delayed again until sometime in early 2016.
You may remember that in early 2015, the HTC Grip was first shown at the Mobile World Congress. In July, HTC said its plans for the Grip were being revamped in favor of a new and “entire product portfolio for health and fitness launching later this year.” Now it has been confirmed with HTC that the release date for those products has changed once again:
“As we continue to develop the Connected Fitness platform and elevate our product offerings, Under Armour and HTC have decided to launch a fully integrated digital ecosystem of products early next year. This global launch will provide the tools needed to help athletes of all levels track, manage and improve their health and fitness. Our teams have done a remarkable job bringing these products to life and we’re excited to share them with the public soon.”
