Huawei To Launch Android Wear Smartwatch in 2015 [Report]

    The smartwatch market is getting crowded, with rivals LG, Samsung, Sony and several small time players making a big mark amongst small but targeted market. To a large extent, almost every major player in the tech business, except HTC launching their respective wearable devices.

    Huawei To Launch Android Wear Smartwatch in 2015 [Report]

    Speaking with Engadget during IFA 2014 last week, CEO of Huawei's consumer group, Richard Yu, confirmed the existence of an Android Wear-based smart watch in 2015.

    Although the top executive over at Huawei was tight lipped about what exactly is in the pipe-line, but he said that the watch will be "innovative and beautiful". Yu also added that the device will be more beautiful than Samsung's Gear S watch. Looks like Huawei's smartwatch would be even more useful than the Gear S.

    Well, this will be Huawei's first entry into the world of smartwatches, although the company earlier this year launched its fitness tracking Talkband B1.

    Huawei certainly has something really nice for the world to show. We would expect the device to go official early next year at CES 2015.

    At just concluded IFA 2014, a couple of tech vendors announced their Android Wear-powered smartwatches. This week, Apple could unveil its much awaited iWatch, alongside the iPhone 6 smartphone. Notably, Intel has announced its collaboration with Fossil to jointly develop an Android Wear smartwatch.
