Report: Stand-alone Huawei Watch prepped for 2016; timepiece for the ladies to be unveiled at CES?
The Huawei Watch (2016) could include a stand-alone variant that offers cellular connectivity, so that users can make and take phone calls using the watch. While the Tizen powered Samsung Gear S and Samsung Gear S2 offer this feature, the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE was going to be the first Android Wear watch with cellular connectivity. But issues with the display forced LG to cancel the release of the wearable. If real, the second-gen Huawei could be the first stand-alone Android Wear smartwatch depending on the timing of its release. The non-cellular second-generation Huawei Watch should see improvements to its battery life and performance.
In addition, there is also speculation that at next month's CES 2016 expo in Las Vegas, Huawei will introduce a version of its smartwatch designed for women. Those familiar with the manufacturer's plans say that more feminine looking bands will be available for this timepiece, which will have a rounder and more elegant watch case. And of course, some of the watch faces available on the gender specific Huawei Watch will be designed specifically for the ladies. CES kicks off on January 6th 2016, running though January 9th.
