Is 2014 finally going to be the year of the smartwatch? Most of the major manufacturers are jumping into this space with wearables like the Samsung Gear 2 and the Sony SmartWatch 2. And now that we know Android Wear will be hitting the market later this year, there's word that at least one more company is entering the fray. What you see here is one of the first renderings of the upcoming HTC smartwatch.

As far as we can tell, there's no real official name for the HTC smartwatch just yet, but it is said to be powered by Android Wear. You'll notice that it doesn't take on the round format of the Moto 360, instead taking on the standard square shape that's being used with the Samsung Gear Live and the LG G Watch. The rendering comes by way of @evleaks, a source of many a mobile leak over the years. The image itself was created by Phone Designer with the interface rendering coming from Ferry Passchier.

Aside from the standard square face, the other notable feature on the HTC smartwatch is the classier metal band. This is said to be a "100% faithful reproduction" of the upcoming device, but we really don't know much more about it. Of the Android Wear smartwatches we've seen so far, the Moto 360 has got to be the sexiest, as it's the only one with the more traditional (for a regular watch) round face. As far as the HTC smartwatch, with its metal construction, I wouldn't be at all surprised if its final name joins the "One" family in some form or another. The One Watch, perhaps?
