There are only three smartwatches based on Android Wear official, which include LG's G Watch, Samsung's Gear Live and Motorola's Moto 360.
According to a render revealed by the entrusted Twitter leaker @evleaks, the alleged HTC Android Wear smartwatch will have a square design, again. Reportedly, the hardware of the device is a 100% faithful reproduction while the skin that appears similar to Sense UI is not real and just a placeholder.

However, it appears like this alleged smartwatch in question appears to feature a metal wristband while the other such devices mentioned above feature plastic or rubbed bands.
Beside the leak of the render, the other details on the possible specifications or features and the availability or pricing of the Android Wear based HTC smartwatch remain unknown. Going by the previous rumors, the Taiwanese tech firm is in plans to launch several wearable devices by the end this year and it is believed to cost around $200.
