Apart form the HTC One M9, the company has unveiled a new wearable a smart fitness tracker called the re-grip and a gear called re-vive VR head set .
The wait for HTC’s first wearable device has come to an end. We never got the Android Wear device we were expecting bust instead got a GPS-enabled fitness tracker by the name of Grip. This is also the first product of HTC’s partnership with Under Armour.
With a matte black finish, colorful interior band, and curved display, the Grip looks like a hybrid of Nike’s FuelBand 2 and the Microsoft Band. It includes five sensors for tracking your workouts. One of those is GPS, which is always a big deal for runners. A “multi-sport mode” can track various activities from running to cycling. “Simply put, Grip will train you as if you have a team of professional experts coaching you the entire time,” said HTC CEO Peter Chou. “And it is very fun.”
HTC has just announced the Vive, a virtual reality headset developed in partnership with Valve.
HTC’s Peter Chou hyped the new device during the press event today in Barcelona. “We believe that virtual reality will totally transform the way that we interact with the world. Virtual reality will become a mainstream technology for the rest of the world,” he said. “Attending real-time concerts, learning history, reliving memories.” These experiences will never be the same, according to Chou.
