Huawei Watch 3 is already in the works, but it will come later rather than sooner

Huawei Watch 3 is already in the works, but it will come later rather than sooner
Huawei's newest smartwatch, the Watch 2 seems to be very popular among customers, and while this should bode well for the Chinese company, it actually hurts consumers waiting for a sequel.

How is that possible? Well, it appears that Huawei won't be launching another smartwatch because the Watch 2 is still selling very well. However, the company recently confirmed that it's already working on the Huawei Watch 3, but that smartwatch won't released until later on.

Huawei's Richard Yu offered a statement in this regard saying that his company is definitely in no hurry to out its third smartwatch, so it's taking its time with the development.

Considering Yu's recent statement, it's highly unlikely that the Huawei Watch 3 will be introduced along with the company's new P20 flagship, which is expected to be unveiled on March 27. The next best timeline for a smartwatch announcement would be September (at IFA), but that's just a guess.

Hopefully the Watch 3 is closer to the original Watch 1. In my opinion, the Watch 2 took a few steps back in the design department.

The watch 2 was horrible compared the the first version , it was too sporty too, over sized & too thick. Watch 3 hopefully will be stainless steel & slightly thinner than the watch 1.

The Watch 1 had a 71.5% screen-to-body ratio vs the Watch 2 at 42.0%. How does that happen?!

It's a watch! What does screen to body ratio to do with watch design? The second TAG Heuer Connected has a thicker bezel than the first and this looks better. Do you ask for more screen to body ratio on pocket calculators or what?

A bigger display on a small footprint means I'd be able to see more on the screen without the watch taking up my entire wrist. It's a pretty simple concept. Compare a Huawei Watch 1 vs a Gear Sport. The Watch 1 has a smaller footprint yet has a .2" larger screen. That's a superior design in my book.

As I said, it's a watch. Designs like Motorola Moto 360 or the new Skagen Falster require bezeless designs. Tag Heuer and Huawei Watch 2 designs live through the bezels. Smart watches are equally watches and interactive devices, both aspects have to work. It's like saying that TAG Heuer shouldn't have released the 41mm female-friedly edition of their smartwatch because the bezel-screen ratio is not good enough. Ugh?

We both have different opinions on what kind of smart watch looks the best and is the most functional...and that's completely fine. Yes it is a good thing that these companies are offering different sizes for both men and women, but for my personal tastes, the Huawei Watch 2 isn't as appealing compared to the Watch 1. You might have a different opinion and that's understandable. Thankfully there's plenty of options out there to fit your needs vs my needs in a smart watch.

Everybody says my watch 2 is smart looking and it's great that it's 4g.

I just hope they won't price too high like other manufactures.
