One statement that has been circling the Web for the last two years concerning smartwatches is that they aren’t made for women, but for men. According to some female critics, most modern smartwatches have wristbands that look as though the intended audience is male, with no females in sight. Some women are interested in tech but want smartwatches to have something of a feminine flair.
Motorola has championed something of a feminine revolution with its women’s Moto 360 smartwatches this year, and Chinese smartwatch maker Huawei is poised to take up the mantle and follow suit in 2016. The latest rumor surrounding the Nexus 6P manufacturer is that Huawei will expand its Huawei Watch to include women’s watches, with the announcement scheduled to arrive at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January. As far as the specs and features, nothing will change except that these smartwatches will have more feminine colors such as Rose Gold, for example.
Alongside of the Women’s Huawei Watch, Huawei will unveil its second-generation Android Wear smartwatch, the Huawei Watch 2, in the second half of 2016. We assume that the Huawei Watch 2 will include women’s watches as well, but we have no details on whether or not Huawei will improve the specs and features of these watches or provide something of a slightly updated model. It seems as though a number of manufacturers have released second-generation Android Wear smartwatches that rarely differ from the first-generation models, so a nice refreshing change for the Huawei Watch 2 is always welcome.
We’ll reveal more details as we uncover them, so stay tuned. Huawei has sold 100 million smartphones this year, and the Chinese maker looks to take on top manufacturers worldwide by storm. Will it be the company to watch in 2016? If 2015 is any indication, Motorola won’t be able to sit still in 2016.
