Porsche Design Huawei Smartwatch is now available in Europe

It was a bit of a surprise when Huawei announced last year that it teamed up with Porsche Design to bring out a luxurious and more powerful version of the Mate 9. Then again, with BlackBerry practically out of the scene, the luxury design company needed a new partner in the smartphone market. Also surprisingly, however, is that the partnership actually went beyond just the conventional smartphones. Alluded to in the past, the Porsche Design Huawei Smartwatch has just been launched, with much fuss or fanfare, in Europe and the UK, giving Android Wear users yet another luxury option.

While not exactly a failure, its users have started to ask for more and Mobvoi eventually obliged. So now with the new Ticwatch S and Ticwatch E, the smartwatches won’t be straying and will run Android Wear from the get go.

ASUS ZenWatch users relax: Android Wear 2.0 coming this month

ASUS is not Android Wear’s biggest fan. At least not anymore. Sure, it has one model more than Huawei, whose top honcho has publicly cast doubt on this wearable segment, but the ZenWatch 3 might be the last of its kind. And with that comes fears that ASUS will also be pulling the plug on its support for those smartwatches already out in the market. If you’re an owner of such device, fret not. ASUS promises that the latest Android Wear update is still coming, this month in fact.

Android Wear smartwatches may have had a resurgence of interest in the month or two that followed the release of Android Wear 2.0, but that hasn't completely stopped its supporters from dropping off one by one.

Moto 360 2nd gen to still get Android Wear 2.0 “soon”

Although Huawei's top honchos were reportedly mystified by the purpose and utility of smartwatches, it still put out a new Huawei Watch 2. Motorola, however, isn't as impressed and isn't willing to take another commercial, not to mention financial, risk.

Fortunately, Google's official Android Wear Twitter account does confirm that it's coming. But it won't be coming as fast as you might have wished.
