ZTE Quartz smartwatch leaks out, circular display and Android Wear 2.0 on board

Last month, during CES 2017, ZTE confirmed that it was working on an Android Wear smartwatch - its very first such device. According to Venture Beat, the smartwatch is called ZTE Quartz, and we can take a look at it in the leaked image above.
Like many other smartwatches currently on the market (not including the Apple Watch, of course), the ZTE Quarts sports a circular display in order to resemble a traditional timepiece.
For now, there aren't too many details on the features of the ZTE Quartz, but we know that this should come with 3G/LTE connectivity, so it might let you make and receive calls without the aid of a smartphone. ZTE previously said that its first smartwatch would offer superior battery life, and should be available via a major US carrier.
The Quartz runs Android Wear 2.0, the brand new version of Google's OS that will be officially announced later this week, when other next-gen smartwatches (including models made by LG) are expected to be introduced.
Interestingly, ZTE also has an Android smartphone called Quartz, though this is now 2 years old and is a low-end device of little interest. Regardless of that, the ZTE Quartz watch might be fully unveiled at the end of the month during MWC 2017.

I'm curious to what they think "superior battery life" is. In my opinion, it should be at least 4 days.
