After Apple announced its watch on Monday in an event held in San Fransisco, the Indian watch maker, Titan is looking for a technology partner to develop its own smart watch.
“We are looking for a technology partner and we aim to bring out a watch in a year’s time. It will be a utility watch,” Titan Company managing director Bhaskar Bhat said as per the Economic Times report.
