In a recent interview, ZTE USA's chairman and CEO confirmed they are working together with a local carrier for the release of the company's first Android Wear smartwatch. Unfortunately, he did not reveal any other details.

ZTE is well known for its affordable smartphones and various accessories, but they still have to release their first Android Wear smartwatch. Fortunately, it looks like those waiting for the ZTE smart wearable will be able to acquire it later this year. Most details are still not public yet, but one company executive has confirmed that ZTE is working with a US carrier to bring this product to the local market.

Although the smart wearable market seems to be shrinking, ZTE will use the experience of the ones that came before them to get everything right. The wearable market does not offer many smartwatches with their own LTE connection, so the ZTE Android Wear smart wearable might succeed after all.

When talking about the early smart wearables launched by other companies so far and their flaws, Lixin Cheng, the chief executive officer of ZTE USA, highlighted the short battery life of most such products, next to the lack of an LTE connection, as well as proper carrier service plans. The first ZTE smartwatch promises to be thinner, sporting LTE connectivity and excellent autonomy. Now, we only need to wait for it to show up later this year as promised.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
