I don’t know if Huawei is already bracing for its so-far-poorly reviewed Huawei Watch 2 to be a large failure or if their present rotating CEO Eric Xu Zhijun simply doesn’t give a rattling, however the exec didn’t precisely have good stuff to mention this morning about smartwatches generally. Throughout the International Analyst Summit in Shenzhen, Zhijun informed attendees that he is “all the time at a loss for words as to what smartwatches are for.”
Taking that a step additional, he discussed that as Huawei’s smartwatch staff approaches him with pleasure over new concepts, he incessantly reminds them to “believe whether or not there are tangible wishes” for these items out there. Now, that makes best sense – why unlock anything else if there isn’t a want for it? However on the similar time, this dude is the CEO. By the point anything else will get to his table, you may hope that 1,000 other folks have assessed whether or not or now not there's a tangible want for no matter it's. I digress.
Again on smartwatches, although – Zhijun’s level about smartwatches strains up with most of the people’s I think. He used to be arguing that your smartphone already does the whole thing (and extra) that a smartwatch can do, so why do we'd like smartwatches? Truthfully, I don’t know! Positive, there are occasions that a smartwatch can come in useful, will have to pulling out a phone now not be important or in case you are in a state of affairs the place your phone isn’t available, but a watch is. However that’s in reality been the fight from day 1 with smartwatch makers – they haven’t found out learn how to promote us on why we'd like one.
Obviously, Huawei hasn’t figured this out both.
