Huawei Watch delayed to September
CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group Richard Yu announced at MWC 2015 that the Huawei Watch would launch by June of this year. With just a couple weeks left to spare, media reports from China have heard nothing about an impending launch on Huawei's home turf. Now, reports from Chinese outlets are saying that the launch has been delayed for a September to October release.
The reason: Huawei's smartwatch is experiencing issues with Google's Android Wear OS to the point where Google Services are unusable in China. Sources claim that Huawei is now engineering its own apps to overcome the issue. Why the delay was not officially announced at an earlier time is unknown.
The Huawei Watch attracted a lot of public attention at MWC this year, so there is pressure on Huawei to launch the device as smoothly as possible. IFA 2015 will likely reveal even more wearables this September to challenge the pricey 450 Euros Huawei Smartwatch.
