HP-Watch

The great smartwatch boom is starting to consume electronic makers and HP is not exempt. The company is partnering with designer Michael Bastian to produce its own next-gen timepiece. Unlike the latest wave of smartwatches from LG, Samsung and Motorola, Hewlett-Packard’s timekeeper won’t be based on Android Wear and will instead be a compatible companion for Android and iOS smartphones.

HP’s smartwatch will have a 44mm stainless steel casing and will feature interchangeable bands available in plastic, rubber and leather. Bastian’s design is said to draw inspiration from the luxurious interiors found in high-end automobiles, which sounds kind of cool, depending on who you ask. As for the watch’s software, HP will use a multi-platform app to push emails, text messages and other notifications from your phone to its smartwatch. Reportedly set to launch this fall, pricing and hardware details remain unknown, but considering the direction of this particular smartwatch, specs don’t appear to be a major focal point.
