Huawei Just 'Leaked' its First Android Wear Smartwatch on a Barcelona Billboard

By Chris Mills on at

All the cool kids are peddling Android wearables these days, and it looks like Huawei is no exception: in advance of the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, it looks like the Chinese phone giant has revealed its upcoming smartwatch in a premature/opportunistic ad at the Spanish city's airport.

First spotted by Android Central, the billboard gives it the original name 'Huawei Watch', with a choice of three designs — silver or black metal, or a leather band — and a circular display topping things off. There's no details on fancier specs like heart-rate monitors or processor, but it is clear that the watch will run Android Wear, so the bulk of the functionality will likely be identical to the other circular Android watches we've seen so far.
