    Huawei Not Using Wear OS Because Smartwatches “Need To Last Longer Than A Day And A Half”

    1 month ago - By Android Headlines

    Huawei unveiled its latest smartwatch today, the Watch GT. Some might be surprised to learn that it is not running on Wear OS. Instead it is running on a platform that Huawei built in-house called, Lite OS. Why would Huawei go with another platform for its wearables, when Wear OS already exists and has a ton of apps and support available? Well its simple. Huawei says that Wear OS is too limited. The company mentions that you need to stick with a certain processor - which in this case would be the Snapdragon Wear 2100 or Wear 3100 - and there are certain features that must stay on, not to...

    Huawei has been dabbling in smartwatches for the past few years, with 2017 bringing us the Huawei Watch 2. Now it looks like the company is back with a third iteration of its smartwatch in the form of the Huawei Watch GT, a watch that we've been hearing about for a while now based on various leaks and rumors, some of which have since been confirmed at Huawei's event in London.

    Huawei has unveiled two new wearables that it is adding to its portfolio today at its event in London. It's no surprise that Huawei is still focusing in on wearables, considering at the end of the second quarter , Huawei's wearables shipments grew over 118-percent year-over-year. So it's clear that Huawei is going to continue to focus on wearables for the foreseeable future. But Huawei is not launching any Wear OS-powered smartwatches today. Instead, both of these are running on its own in-house operating system, Lite OS. Huawei says that you can think of these wearables as competing with...

    In case you're bored by the Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro news due to all of the leaks, the Chinese phone maker also announced two new wearables today. The Huawei Watch GT and Huawei Band 3 Pro are surprises fit for runners, and they go the distance according to the specs and our brief hands-on time with them. Interestingly, the Watch GT doesn't use WearOS, Google's name for its smartwatch platform formerly known as Android Wear. Unsurprisingly, with that development, we get much longer battery life: up to two weeks. Huawei told us that while marathon runners will get 22 hours with the...

    Huawei's latest wearable really makes us wonder more about the future of Google's Wear OS, given how the new wearable isn't running Google's smartwatch platform, but rather, an in-house developed “OS Lite” operating system. Acting more like its previous effort in the fitness-oriented Huawei Fit, the Huawei Watch GT certainly has an intriguing design from afar with its distinguishable and contemporary watch-like design, but the visual aesthetics are only superficial.
    In terms of its stand outs, they include its classic design, 2-week battery life in full working mode, 1.39-inch AMOLED...
