Huawei Watch D launching in December with precise blood pressure monitoring capabilities
Huawei is yet to announce its first smartwatch that supports blood pressure monitoring, despite a wealth of evidence suggesting that it is on the verge of doing so. Earlier this month, ITHome discovered a patent that described how Huawei's blood pressure monitoring technology could work, as we discussed at the time. Prior to that, leakers on Weibo claimed that Huawei would release the so-called Watch D in November.
Apparently, that has been pushed to December. Reportedly, Huawei will showcase the Watch D alongside several other products, including smart glasses and even a clamshell smartphone. The Watch D will not be the first smartwatch to launch that can measure blood pressure, although Huawei's patent implies that it will contain more several sensors that could yield more accurate results.
Supposedly, Huawei has already received clearance to sell the Watch D from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). According to a leaker on Weibo, the Watch D is certified as a Class II medical device, a requirement to sell something that can measure blood pressure in the US. The Watch D is tipped to look like the images above and below, too. Presumably, the Watch D will run HarmonyOS 2, which is available on the Watch 3 series, among other devices.
