New Huawei smartwatch and fitness band designs revealed in patent images

The Huawei watch patent shows an Apple Watch-like form factor, a departure from the traditional circular dial design

Highlights
  • Two new Huawei wearables have been spotted on EUIPA and WIPO
  • One of them seems to be a smartwatch with squarish form factor, while the other looks like a fitness tracker

Huawei, the world’s biggest smartphone brand, seems to be working on a new smartwatch and fitness tracker. The trademark listings of these wearables, which were originally filed back in April, have now surfaced on EUIPO and WIPO certifications sites. These listings reveal the designs of upcoming Huawei (or Honor) smartwatch and fitness band, and they look dramatically different from the wearables the company currently offers.

Starting with the Huawei watch, it appears in a rectangular form factor, with noticeable thick bezels and nothing but the power button on the right side. Huawei has so far launched smartwatches with a circular dial, so this Apple Watch-like form factor sure looks different. Around the back, the Huawei watch has two pins, most likely for charging, and a black bar that protrudes from the frame a little and is likely to be home to heart rate and activity tracking sensors. The wearable may have a plastic or metal build depending on how premium it will be, if it ever launches that is. The patent images don’t necessarily mean Huawei will launch this design in the future.

The Huawei Band aka fitness tracker, on the other hand, seems to have slimmer form factor compared to the current-gen Huawei/ Honor Band lineup. The wearable, as seen from the images (above), will tout a curved design and display. There will be a power button on the right edge and sensors at the back. The band will only support proprietary charger since there is no built-in USB-A port for charging. That’s all the information we have at the moment.
