Really, really doubt Huawei can stand behind its product, develop an extensible platform and then beat Pebble at its own game.
I'm skeptical. Meanwhile, Time 2 (or round) it is.
This actually looks really interesting.
If the heart rate and sleep tracking is reasonably accurate, it'll be a great device. The battery life should be rather good with an e-ink display.
Qxdir, 02 Nov 2016They have that fast charging thing that might come in a smartphone soonI'd like to see some company push graphene batteries into the portable devices. Same size can hold much more mAh, recharges much faster and on top of it, it's much more durable than the Li-Ion batteries. Nanotechnology. Cmon people, get on board already.

Thats not true the SWR30 is just as useful and easy to use as that watch you mentioned. Plus it was a built in speaker and mic.
Liris0911, 02 Nov 2016Another masterpiece from Huawei .. that's awesome Their Android Wear watch was already a beautiful masterpeice, and now with this maybe Huawei is planning to take on the smartwatch market ;-)
Very interesting. Huawei is thinking outside of the box. I just wish with all this innovation, someone would get their minds into the better battery technology, because those we're using now are almost 40 year old tech.
Grey1213, 02 Nov 2016No 4k display no buy.Nice try...seems some people didn't get the sarcasm. That's kinda the problem, sarcasm looses a lot in text XD
The issue is, ePaper is awesome, but only Pebble have got the actual UX right! The intuitive and familiar mechanical BACK, UP/DOWN and SELECT controls make operation a sinch, whilst Android Wear and Apple Watch are horrible to use. (I have owned two Android watches and despite being pretty, just awful to operate, sorry.)
I see. The same approach that achieved by Qualcomm with their Mirasol display. And that Mirasol itself was actually colored display, not monochrome nor black-white display. The color level of Mirasol display was far from current LCD and OLED display. But for power efficiency, they do better, much better.
Apart from their advantage in sunlight readability, the downside of this ePaper display is, on the opposite situation, dark environment readability. Since, unlike LCD and OLED, this kind of display does not produce their own light. They need external backlight source. The kind you usually found in digital watch like Casio's G-Shock.
