Huawei Watch 3 is coming, but you'll have to wait a while longer

Not while the Watch 2 is selling well

Huawei didn't announce any new wearables at this year's MWC, despite launching the Huawei Watch 2 at last year's show. But the company did confirm that the Huawei Watch 3 is being worked on - the company is just taking a bit more time to get it right.

Huawei CEO Richard Yu told TechRadar that Huawei doesn't feel pressure to push out the next smartwatch as the Watch 2 is still selling well. But he did say the third-gen smartwatch will arrive eventually.

"It will come later - there's no hurry because Huawei Watch 2 sells well," said Yu. "We're not in a hurry, so we're launching the new watch later."

The Huawei Watch 2 crammed a lot into a small device, including LTE, a heart rate sensor and NFC for Android Pay. So we know that Huawei has the chops to pull off something good here.

What might a new Huawei Watch look like? Your guess is as good as ours right now. The company pushed out a late iteration on the Watch 2 in October called the Watch 2 Pro, which included an eSIM but didn't make it outside of China. Perhaps we'll see that included on the next watch.

IFA 2018 could be when we see Huawei launch it, setting it against the Apple Watch Series 4 and maybe the Samsung Gear S4. Or, you know, literally any other time of the year. Who's to say.
