Leaked ad shows off Huawei's new luxury smartwatch powered by Android Wear
The Huawei Watch is the name of the manufacturer's first Android Wear powered smartphone according to a leak that reveals an ad for the timepiece. The ad is designed to announce that Huawei is positioning its wearable as a luxury item. The picture shows a well-dressed man (impeccably tailored) wearing the round-faced Huawei Watch. "Timeless Design. Smart Within," is printed below the photograph.

The ad says that the Huawei Watch is timeless due to its "Classic design and impeccable craftsmanship in watchmaking." And it is smart because of the "State-of-the-art wearable technology, powered by Android Wear."

Speaking of technology, Huawei CEO Richard Yu hinted last year that the Huawei Watch would be a stand alone model similar to the Tizen powered Samsung Gear S, which offers 3G connectivity. Considering that Huawei just introduced a 4.5G LTE connected smartband (which we will hear more about at MWC), there is no reason not to think that the Huawei Watch just might offer 4G LTE connectivity. Yu said that Huawei's watch would out do the Gear S and going with a 4G connection as opposed to the 3G used by Sammy's watch would be one way to make that statement true.

Besides the Huawei Watch, we should see Huawei introduce a couple of sequels at MWC. One is a sequel to the TalkBand B1, which is a fitness band with a pop-out earpiece for calls. The other sequel would be one for the large-screened Mediapad X1, which lives in the gray area between phablet and tablet. Sporting a 7-inch screen, this device has all of the features of an Android tablet, but also takes and makes phone calls.


Thanks for the tip!

This is the best looking smartwatch I've seen Seems like a good compromise between the bezel-less Moto 360 with the flat tire, and the bigger bezels on the fully round LG GWR

Feel the same way. Only got the LG R because I got it at a good price and the Moto360 had to many things I knew would annoy me in time. But the LGR has its flaws (imo) too, like the big bezels and bulky look.

Very true. Finally a watch that makes me forget about the Moto 360. Well, at least in regards to design. Still though, with all the other competition heading to the market, some with 4G built in, you have to wonder if the feature set or battery life is up to competing with the rest of the market or is it simply a fancy design and nothing more.

Well, that was about the dumbest thing I've read all day.

How many people bought the Note 4? Why does Samsung lead in Consumer Reports customer satisfaction rankings with all of those terrible experiences?

You tell'em TC. The Apple Watch is the Jesus-Mohamed Buddha Watch. The Halls cough drop design will prove to the world that Apple can sell anything. It will be the Jesus watch not because it's great, but because we worship Apple.

Apple will release it in 2017 and their fans will go bananas over it's revolutionary design.

Just a tip for you guys, head over to unbox therapy, he has 2 new exclusive shots for the back of the S6 and the front of the S6 Edge plus a bunch of official specs. The back will be made of GG4, and the top and bottom bezels are smaller than the photos leaked earlier this morning.

Blah, samsung design isnt something I look forward to. After I saw the leaks and noticed no changes to the front of the device I though great it looks like the S5 and note edge with a second edge screen, the edge was already awkward to hold and 2 edge screens we will see what happens at the event.

For me at this point in time Smartwatches are more of play thing so I want them rugged with with all the tracking and heart rate monitor built in. Luxury, I ain't there yet.
