Huawei Android Wear smartwatch launching at MWC

Chinese company outlines wearable plan that includes fitness trackers too

Huawei looks all set to be the latest company to unleash an Android Wear smartwatch, with the Chinese company confirming that its "new fitness device platform" will appear on both a flagship smartwatch and a new smartband that will be officially launched at Mobile World Congress at the start of March.

Update: When will your smartwatch get Android Wear 2.0

The details were revealed to Pocket-lint, during a briefing at the company's head quarters in Shenzen, with Shao Yang, CMO of devices at Huawei stating: "Different is very important. We are not trying to bring something similar."

Smartwatch showdown: The best Android Wear watches

The Android Wear smartwatch could be a Moto 360 or LG G Watch R rival, as a slide revealed a circular faced device.

The smartband will be the follow up to the extremely disappointing TalkBand B1, which we described as "a fitness tracker that is not accurate or feature-rich enough to work very well as a fitness tracker and is a Bluetooth headset that is too fiddly to work very well as a Bluetooth headset" during our two star review.

Let's hope Huawei doesn't have a couple more duds up its sleeve.
