3.) HTC Halfbeak
A long time ago in 2017, some images of a smartwatch from the house of HTC were leaked.

As visible in the images, the watch has a circular dial design. According to rumours, it will pack an OLED Touch Display. One can notice that a logo of HTC along with the logo of a sports brand called Under Armor is present.
The name Under Armor is enough to describe its fitness features. The leaked name of the watch was termed as Halfbreak, though it more sounds like a codename. HTC is currently suffering from declining sales due to which they might have postponed the launch of this gadget temporarily. The colour scheme visible in the image looks eye-catching, for more details we have to wait for the official announcement.
4.) Apple Watch Series 4
Apple’s Watch Series 3 in overall is an excellent piece of technology, and however, due to premium pricing, their market is tiny.

This upcoming Watch Series will come with an all-new Apple chipset coupled with the fast memory. Apple Watch Series 4 will come with some essential features like water resistance, sleep monitoring, heart rate sensor, etc. According to rumours this time Apple will present a more independent smartwatch.
