HTC has announced that it would be delaying the launch of the Grip, announced at the MWC in Barcelona, until later this year.

According to the Verge, the company said in its official statement that after extensive wear testing and user feedback they have decided to align Grip with the entire product portfolio for health and fitness launching later this year.

The company also said that this will be a state-of-the-art comprehensive portfolio of products for this category powered by Under Armour RECORD.

Earlier this year, HTC announced the Grip as a smartband meant for people who are  looking ahead of a basic band and are serious  about tracking their workouts. In other words, the HTC Grip was to try and plug the space being vacated by Nike’s Fuel band. As HTC’s Jeff Gattis told IndianExpress.com it was designed for athletes and meant for people who are committed about  tracking their workouts. They clearly don’t want to compete with the large basic, also-ran, band segment.

The Grip was supposed to sell at $199, but was not supposed to be sold in India.
