Huawei to launch smartwatch in 2015

The Chinese smartphone vendor Huawei has taken their first step into Android wearables. The company will be launching the smartwatch in 2015.

ZTE earlier said it would be working on its smartwatch.

The company revealed that they are planning about developing a smartwatch that might resemble Sony’s SmartBand Talk.

Huawei said that the upcoming smartwatch will be innovate and beautiful, but did not mention whether the device would feature a square or circular display.

Company CEO Richard Yu also claims that his mysterious device would look nicer than Samsung’s curved AMOLED device.

Huawei’s smartwatch will face competition from the other Android smartwatches in the market. LG, Motorola, ASUS and Sony already have smartwatches running on Android OS.

Company’s executives have stated the smartwatch will be launched in 2015 with competitive price.

Huawei has also launched its TalkBand B1 which is a fitness tracker that’s more of a smart wristband than a smartwatch.

The device has 1.4-inch flexible OLED display on the band.

The device also has fitness tracking features which records how many steps user has taken, or how far user has travelled. It also shows the number of calories burned.

It also has the smart alarm function for the user to wake up at the optimal time. It also sports NFC for pairing with phones. The Huawei device is fueled up by a 90mAh battery that promises six days worth of usage.
