The HTC Grip tracker is a wrist-borne fitness tracker developed by the Taiwanese electronics giant in collaboration with Under Armour.
The collaboration sees the HTC Grip tracker integrate seamlessly with Under Armour Record, the apparel label's new fitness tracking app. The Record app lets users alog and track workouts, set challenges and goals and generate data from devices such as the HTC Grip.
The Grip is equipped with GPS and is capable of tracking a variety of metrics including distance and speed untethered, meaning you don't have to also have your smartphone on you. Its curved 1.8-inch PMOLED display can also display calls and notifications from connected smartphones.
What's interesting about this collaboration is that it brings together two brands that are relative upstarts in their respective industries but are joining forces to take on more established competitors.
