HTC has confirmed that it will not be releasing an Android Wear smartwatch despite the repeated leaked photos. There is still a possibility that they may be working on their own software for the device.

In the past few weeks, several photos of the HTC and Under Armour smartwatch have surfaced. The back of the watch showed both of the companies' logos which did not seem fake at all. Neither of the companies have confirmed that they are working on the smartwatch.

Now, HTC is confirming that they are not developing an Android Wear smartwatch. HTC President of Smartphones and Connected Device Chialin Chang told Tbreak that they are not going to launch an Android Wear smart watch because he thinks the company still has not enough experience in the field.

"Android Watch is one thing but even Apple is as a big brand is declining [in watches.] We are not going to have a watch in the short term," said Chang.

There are two possible things that Chang meant in his statement. One is that there is really no Android Wear smart watch being developed or any smart watch for the matter. The device in the leaked photos may have been a very old HTC and Under Armour smart watch prototype too, Android Police reported.

Another possible thing is that HTC might actually be working on their own operating system for the smart watch. They may also opt for Samsung's Tizen OS instead although there is still no evidence to support the possibility.

Under Armour is also silent about the issue. The proprietary operating system may be designed specifically for fitness freaks considering the branding partnership.

HTC's next smartwatch may not appear in the following months. Fans should not expect one this year after the company's official statement.
