A new Huawei SmartWatch certified in China, could it be Watch 3 or GT 2?

Huawei’s Global Senior Product Marketing Manager, Peter Gauden has recently told TechRadar that the existing Watch GT can also utilize new HarmonyOS.

“In actual fact, part of the early work that was being done on HarmonyOS was actually also utilizing some elements of LiteOS already.” He said.

LiteOS is the software that is currently in use on the Huawei WatchGT series and replaced Wear OS, used in previous wearables.

Although, Huawei hasn’t confirmed its official update on this OS swap but according to a previous report, Huawei will be launching a new smartwatch with HarmonyOS onboard later this year.
