One of Huawei’s most powerful areas in Europe is its smartwatch division. From the inexpensive Huawei Watch Fit to the luxurious Huawei Watch GT2 Pro, the company has managed to create excellent smartwatches that stand out for their very complete health, also with a battery that makes its main rivals ridiculous.
Part of the secret of this battery is the use of LiteOS, an operating system designed by Huawei for its devices which, despite its virtues, also has limitations. In our experience, we liked the lack of mobile payments, a voice assistant, and third-party app support. This last point will soon cease to be an inconvenience, and is that they are finally opening up their ecosystem.
Huawei begins to open its watches to third-party applications
One of the strengths and weaknesses of Huawei’s watch ecosystem is that the company has absolute control over hardware and software. While the system turned out to be robust enough to create great looking watches, the lack of third-party apps was a big deal to tackle.
Fitify is the first third-party app to reach Huawei watches.
The company has decided to open its ecosystem to third-party applications by presenting the first application among the many to come. Fitify, a popular training app will start to be available for Huawei Watch GT2 Pro users, although it is also expected to reach the rest of the models with a Kirin A1 processor. The app can be downloaded to the watch via the app gallery.
Derek Yu, vice president of Huawei CEE reported that the company continues to grow in the wearable device sector, reaching a 19.5% market share worldwide in the third quarter of 2020. After the launch of Fitify, Huawei wants send a message to the rest. from developers, indicating that its platform has great potential.
