Huawei doesn’t have much of a presence here in the United States, but that’s something that the Chinese company REALLY wants to change. It’s not just the smartphone market that the company wants to succeed in either, Huawei is interested in selling smartwatches to Americans as well. First revealed at this years MWC and having just recently passed throuhg the FCC, the Huawei Watch is the company’s first-ever Android Wear-powered smartwatch.
One of my personal highlights of Mobile World Congress in February was Huawei’s first Android Wear smartwatch, the Huawei Watch, which was announced as a last minute decision at the event. We’ve already heard that it wasn’t likely to be released until September or October but the Huawei Watch paid a trip to the FCC this past weekend, which suggests the smartwatch may finally be ready for release. In its FCC filing, Huawei isn’t even attempting to hide which product has been certified and the Huawei Watch has FCC ID QISMERCURY and hardware version EB1MERCURYM. I guess it’s safe to say that the Huawei Watch used the codename “MERCURY” at some point. The FCC listing also confirms the specs of the Huawei Watch, which haven’t changed since it was announced in March. The front has a 1.4inch AMOLED display with 400 x 400 pixels resolution (and 286 pixels per inch density) that is protected by a sapphire crystal display; the protection makes it one of the few smartwatches in the world to use sapphire crystal, which is almost impossible to scratch.
