Upcoming Smartwatches 2017

1. HTC Halfbeak

The next best upcoming smartwatch is HTC’s Halfbreak Android wear. According to the leaked images of this smartwatch, we can say that the smartwatch will arrive in a circle casing as opposed to a square molded body as beforehand observed in Samsung Smartwatches. In the Display area, it will come with an OLED screen with 360 x 360 pixels resolutions. However, it is not confirmed that it will offer some protections for the screen or not, but we believe that it can come with Gorilla Glass protection.


Halfbeak may remain for the OS, in the leaked picture it is incompletely demonstrating Halfbeak, while the serial number and assembled number are obviously noticeable and we can say visible. On the rear panel, it has an Armor and the HTC marking (branding) which is indicating that HTC may have worked together with the accompanying brand to make the item. It will likewise accompany a Heart Rate Sensor at the back.


However, the quality and finishing of this smartwatch are not at its best, as you can look into leaked images too. But still it seems in development, maybe it is a concept design of the smartwatch, which isn’t finished yet properly.

2. Google’s Smartwatch

Angelfish and Swordfish, the two upcoming smartwatches from Google, is in the rumors right now. Both wearables will be announced in 2017, as per the market news which we are getting. The launch date we can expect in somewhere in 2017 because it looks Google will do little late in the new smartwatches.

So anyway let’s talk about the rumored smartwatches one by one. Both wearables will be packed with a very quick Google’s assistance.


Tipped design


It is clearly mentioned via (AndroidPolice) one of the biggest leak maker, that the Google’s smartwatch Angelfish will be 42mm and 46mm sizes. The device will come packed with GPS, LTE connectivity that feels interesting too, and there will be a heart-rate monitor, which will help you in checking your heart rate. The Smartwatch is said to come with a Lenovo’s Moto 360 like design. It may come with Android Wear 2.0 OS, but it’s not much clear yet. The Angelfish will come with two other buttons including one more. However, the exact procedure of these buttons is yet not clear.


Swordfish will come with a much less bezel circular display, as compared to the Angelfish. It will have a single button unlike to the Angelfish. However, the procedure of this button is also not clear. The device might not come with LTE, GPS, and most important heart rate sensor in the higher model too.

It may launch with Android Wear 2.0. After looking into the specifications, we can say that Swordfish will be a cheap Device, whereas Angelfish will be a high-end. The price of the both smartwatches will be dissimilar to each other.

3. Microsoft Surface Watch

Microsoft, the tech giant is also in the news because of the rumors of their upcoming smartwatch. As per reports, Microsoft’s prototype smartwatch testing project has moved on to its Surface team, which means they are very deeply invested in the project now as the main projects are handled by the Surface Department.

The Surface brand tag is currently used for their Laptops, hybrids, and PCs, and for long it is being also used for the upcoming rumored Surface Phone which hasn’t become a reality yet. As we believe that in the year 2017, they could launch long rumored Surface Phone along with the expected Surface Smartwatch.

Everybody might feel that Microsoft is not anymore in the smartphone and smartwatch market, but to prove everyone wrong and make their mark in this industry they will launch their Surface devices in 2017, which will bring a change in the history of the industry. The specs of the smartwatch are yet to be revealed, but as per strong rumors it will come with an Oxynitride Aluminum body, which will be more harder than regular metal.

4. OnePlus Smartwatch

You all get confused, right? Why we are here talking about the OnePlus smartwatch. As we all know that OnePlus head denied the launching plan of OnePlus smartwatch; but we still believe that there is more chance to update the decision. The market situations are dynamic; it changes as per the conditions, as per the new technology, and most important as per the demand.

We never believed that we’d see a 4GB RAM smartphone under 10000 (120$), but the result is in front of you all. Nokia was the biggest smartphone company that we all remember; now it looks a smallest, that’s because they failed to understand the market demand, the upgraded technology.

The whole scenario we’ve created to explain you a simple concept, that every time there is a possibility. The OnePlus smartwatch may launch in 2018. Companies like Apple, Samsung, Sony are preparing their smartwatches even Google too. In upcoming few months, the biggest companies will change the market competitions, and create more space more demand in the smartwatch market.

The OnePlus will be surely waiting for this, and in 2018 they may launch a smartwatch with their new device which will be named as OnePlus 6. In future, there will be a trend to launch a smartwatch along with their flagship device as we believe. That’s our views, but we cannot say anything 100% correct, we’ve tried to explain every possible thing.

  • Hi there, trying to find moto 360 2nd gen 42mm with cognac leather band, but hasn’t seen this on any of the online portals. Yes, it is there on Amazon, but at crazy prices.. Any lead where to find this one, with the original price of INR 20K.. thanks a lot in advance

  • Hi Sachin. Good article. What watch would you buy if it was your first in 2017? Also, why is it so hard to find “wristbands” for the Sony Smart watch 3? What is going on here? I bought the watch (with bright green watchband) for $69. I don’t care for the band too much so checked around for replacements, and it is ridiculous. To buy a silver metal watch band (WITHOUT THE WATCH), I could not find anything under $225. I can’t find even a basic black plastic band anywhere. Why would Sony do this??? Why not YOU invest in a small company to make these metal watch bands for Sony SW 3 and sell them? )) You could probably make them for under $50 and sell them for $75. That is a huge profit margin. So discussed with this very basic issue.

  • IP 67 only specifies immersion for up to one meter for a defined time and pressure which does not mean “if you are in a deep pool then no need to worry it will be still safe”. IP 68 would be the minimum required for this type of activity with the Moto 360 3

  • The Huawei needs to be thinner than the 2016 model. Such a modification will make it the cream of the crop.
