Look at the list of Android Wear partners and you won’t see Huawei there. Maybe the list needs an update. And while we’re at it, the folks who manage signage at Barcelona’s airport might want to check their schedule: They have advertisements appearing that show the new Huawei Watch.
Huawei hasn’t officially announced the product yet, so the ads, spotted by Android Central on their way to the Mobile World Congress event, were made public a bit early.
The ad shows an elegant looking, round watch with relatively small bezels compared to current smartwatches. The ad specifically notes that the Huawei Watch is powered by Android Wear, so it uses [company]Google[/company]’s platform and works with Android phones.
Based on the mini billboard, expect the Huawei Watch to launch in three styles: Gold with brown band, black with a matching sport band and a shiny silver or metal case with fancy mesh band. Without much of a retail presence in the U.S., we may not see the Huawei Watch sold here although Huawei does sell phones directly through an online website.
