HTC fitness band hits FCC
Although HTC unveiled the Grip fitness band they developed with Under Armor, it looks like that device is not ready to hit the market yet. Due to unknown reasons, HTC Grip has been delayed a few times and now it looks like is has been put on hold for a while. Now, it appears that HTC might launch a different smart wearable before the Grip finally becomes available.
The wearable that has just been listed by the FCC website is a fitness band with model number 2PPN. Unfortunately, there is not much to figure out by going through the FCC documents, only the fact that this HTC fitness tracker has Bluetooth connectivity. Apart from that, its basic layout suggests that this is a cheap fitness tracker similar to the Fitbit Charge or Xiaomi Mi Band. Considering the category it will probably belong to, it is safe to assume that HTC 2PPN will offer a step counter, sleep quality tracking, maybe even a heart rate monitor.
The official name of this wearable will probably be more attractive than "2PPN," but HTC still has to officially announce it. Let us just hope it will not end up facing the same delays as HTC Grip and both will eventually reach the market sooner or later.
