The U.S. sanctions on Huawei created a lot of difficulties from buying components to the production of new smartphones. Following the ban, Huawei’s new focus found on wearables and audio accessories.

An app called Mood Messenger has made its way to the Watch GT 2 Pro and allows users of this watch to reply to messages with emojis, the app also has smart suggestions, which is a good feature.

  3. In-App-Purchases Kit enables purchases of virtual products and enabling easy payment.
  4. Analytics Kit, a rich array of pre-set analytics models to help developers gain a deeper insight into users, products, and content.

This a huge jump in strategy for Huawei, as the company is opening its gates for third-party developers, Huawei smartwatches as well as wearable platforms likely to see a big improvement in the coming future.

“By releasing the Fitify app on Huawei’s wearables, Huawei is signaling its determination to work with developers and brands to accommodate apps in its growing portfolio of wearables. Previously the company’s wearables overseas were typically preloaded with in-house apps, but following the introduction of the Huawei Watch GT2 Pro last September, the company is now open to brands and content providers for third-party app development,” said the company in a press release.

“We are already the global market leader for wearables quickly gaining market share for the category across many geographies,” said Derek Yu, Vice President of Huawei CEE & Nordic at Huawei Consumer Business Group. “In Q3 2020, we shipped 10.7 million wrist wearable products globally, growing 88.1% year-on-year to a market share of 19.5%². By making Fitify our debut third-party app for our wearable products we are sending a message to the many other high quality app developers. Our wearables are becoming incredibly popular, and you can benefit by being part of the Huawei AppGallery and wearables ecosystem.”
