Huawei Watch D: Company's first smartwatch with a blood pressure monitor to debut on December 23
Last week, reports emerged that Huawei hoped to introduce the Watch D this month, its first smartwatch that can monitor blood pressure levels. Reputedly, Huawei will unveil the Watch D alongside a new foldable smartphone, currently referred to as the 'Mate V'.
Supposedly, Huawei has settled on unveiling the Watch D on December 23. The Watch D could debut at a wider launch event that includes laptops, other smartwatches and TV-related hardware. This launch event will probably only apply to Huawei's home market, even if the Watch D's announcement becomes international news.
Hence, the Watch D will likely arrive globally in early 2022. At any rate, Huawei appears to be gearing itself to release the Watch D in the US, among other markets outside China. Accordingly, Huawei has received a Class II certification from the country's Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to release a medical grade device.
Pricing remains unknown at this stage, as does the device's final design. Typically, Huawei releases smartwatches and fitness trackers in multiple styles, most recently with the Watch GT 3 series and the Watch FIT mini. If that holds true for the Watch D, expect to see it offered in several colours and watch bands.
