Will it harmonize?

The primary Look at GT was the initially Huawei wearable to phase away from Google’s Dress in OS – staying driven by LiteOS. And it appears to be likely that the craze will continue, with the Watch GT 2 sporting an current version of LiteOS.

Even so, TechRadar lately learnt that Huawei has utilised things of LiteOS all through the early levels of creating HarmonyOS – the Chinese manufacturer’s new alternative to the Android cell working system – and was designed to be applied on gadgets currently out there on the market, like the Watch GT.

If Huawei does use HarmonyOS in the approaching wearable, it will restrict the range of applications customers have entry to, as was the circumstance with its predecessor.
