Huawei shows off unnamed Honor smartwatch in London
As part of a Huawei Honor event in London, the manufacturer showed off a new smartwatch under the Honor branding. The device is marketed as the Honor Zero in Asia and is expected to be available in Europe before the end of the year.
The smartwatch is reminiscent to the Huawei Talkband B2 in technical specifications, though it omits an integrated headset jack and uses a simpler circular design. The battery is expected to last for up to 3 days on a single charge and the device will use the same software as the larger Huawei sister model. The hardware will be IP68-certified for dust and water resistance. Other than displaying time, the smartwatch integrates a step counter with health-related features such as a calorie counter and motion sensor. Huawei is anticipating a launch price of just 79 Euros.
Although the smartwatch is known as the Honor Zero in Asia, its official overseas name has yet to be determined. Huawei is holding a contest whereby the winner will not only get to name the wearable, but will also gain free access to Honor devices up to 2020 and even a trip to China.
