According to the latest information, Huawei’s wearable devices will begin to accept third-party applications, which shows that the Chinese technology company is trying to explore other possibilities of its wearable devices.
Previously, Huawei’s smartwatches are prohibited from installing third-party programs. This may be because Huawei is concerned that too many third-party programs will affect the battery life of smartwatches. But this situation is changing, because Huawei began to allow third-party applications to provide services for its smartwatches.
Foreign media GSMArena commentator Vlad believes that this may be due to the US government’s sanctions on Huawei. Huawei must become more open to meet future challenges.
“Anyway, we are very happy to see another strong competitor emerge in the wearables field,” Vlad said, “and it (Huawei) is destined to become even stronger with this new initiative.”
Huawei has developed a fitness application called Fitify for Watch GT2 Pro, creating a case for launching third-party applications on Huawei smartwatches. The smartwatch application is a companion application to the mobile phone application Fitify. Fitify has more than 900 exercises and more than 200 million training records. These data come from 10 million users in 170 countries/regions.
The application was created by five integrated suites developed by Huawei Mobile Services. Huawei’s goal is to provide “all application content providers with one-stop, comprehensive operation support”.
These application providers may be interested in introducing new applications for their wearable devices, which means that users will soon be able to see more third-party applications on their wearable devices.
Vlad said: “A few days ago, we learned that there is a new application that allows users to reply to text messages.” “We now think that it and other new applications may soon be launched on Huawei’s smartwatches.”
