Huawei Watch GT speculated to run on company's proprietary OS

09 October 2018 1

Huawei’s upcoming smartwatch is close to launching and we’re going through an ever-increasing rumor mill in addition to designing renders. What’s interesting was the absence of the information when it comes to the software in Huawei’s upcoming watch while some believe that it won’t be Google’s Wear OS as Huawei would rather prefer having its own proprietary operating system in place.


In another piece of information regarding the watch, it seems that Huawei would be given preference to ARM Cortex-M4 SoC rather than previously rumored Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100. What gives Huawei’s OS is the battery consumption. The OS from the Chinese smartphone manufacturer consumes less power to function and thus would let the watch run for a longer period of time, adding to its pros. Earlier rumors suggest that the Huawei’s watch would offer 14 days or 20 hours if the GPS is turned on and would feature a 420 mAh battery, which isn’t that much considering the competitors.

Likewise, the device is expected to have an optical heart rate monitor, pressure and light sensor, infrared blaster and a GPS that is built in. Would you opt for a smartwatch from Huawei as oppose to the offerings from Samsung and Apple? Let us know in the comment section below.
