The rumor that Huawei will unveil the Watch 3 smartwatch on June 2 has been officially confirmed. The company posted a teaser on Weibo today and accompanied it with several comments. Most importantly, it has been verified to be used on the HarmonyOS device.
He Gang, Chief Operating Officer of Huawei’s Consumer Devices Business, wrote: “On June 2, We Will Release New Huawei WATCH 3 Series Watch With Hongmeng Operating System [так в Китае называют HarmonyOS]… They will be able to determine your temperature and breathing “… From this it follows that along with the pulse oximeter, the body temperature sensor is also implemented in the watch. But there will be no blood pressure monitoring – the first Huawei watch with this feature will appear in the second half of this year.
But the Watch 3 will have a built-in SIM-card (eSIM), thanks to which the watch will be able to work completely autonomously, without necessarily being tied to a smartphone. There will still be two formats – with screens of 42 and 46 mm. They will also offer silicone and leather straps. When it comes to migrating to HarmonyOS, this will result in a completely new user interface and more third-party applications.
