Huawei's next smartwatch could be only slightly innovative
The sketches that have been filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) show a smartwatch that can store a pair of earbuds. Obviously, since this isn't even a prototype, it would be foolish to just assume things like the fact that the earbuds will come with the smartwatch, even if that's quite possible.
Moreover, the smartwatch would offer users the option to store the earbuds in two ways. They can either be inserted through a capsule with a spring mechanism that opens and shuts, or they can be attached in the watch band itself like a magnet.
The earbuds are supposed to be wireless and water resistant, but they will also feature noise canceling. The main use for these earbuds would be to answer calls without having to flip your wrist.
Fortunately, as better technologies appear every year, suddenly these wild ideas don't look so impossible to accomplish. Either it will be the next Huawei smartwatch or one that will be launched many years from now, it's quite refreshing to know that at some point in the future some of these interesting ideas will materialize in mass-market products.
