No market demand, then there is no real fun. The real demand that smart watches can bring is IoT.
Faced with the upcoming trillion-level consumer market, major top phone manufacturers are joining the IoT competition in their own way. The continuous expansion of product boundaries has become a standard move for the big players’ strategic card positions.
With that in mind, you won’t be surprised that mobile phone manufacturers are launching smartwatches at the same time.
The smallest IoT companion, smartwatch is always your ideas tool
With the rapid development of 5G and artificial intelligence, smart devices have accelerated their transformation from “island-style” single-product intelligence to “Internet of Everything”. Mobile phone manufacturers are hoping to share the smart home market under the wave of 5G+ IoT.
Data predicts that in the next 5 years, more than 50% of urban households in China will have smart housekeepers; the average number of smart home devices held by each household will exceed ten, and the market size will reach trillions.
Today, whether it is cars or home appliances, or shopping or traveling, IoT is permeating every corner of our lives.
Wearable tech means a lot in IoT, affecting many aspects of people’s life
As an important entry point for IoT, smartwatches will become the “switches” of connection control between us and smart devices.
The future envisioned by mobile phone manufacturers is that users can directly connect to nearby IoT devices through their smartwatches, and use voice and other operations for the remote control so that they can easily and quickly obtain various services.
The biggest highlight of Huawei WATCH3 equipped with the latest Hongmeng system is the interconnection experience.

Huawei Hongmeng Watch is expected to link with mobile phones as a vlog artifact to record videos and take photos, or link headphones to listen to music and control noise reduction, link large screens for video calls, or link smart homes to achieve remote control and so on.
With the continuous deepening of the development of automobile intelligence, more and more car companies are beginning to pay attention to the experience of users in terms of intelligence.
In the future, smart watches can also be connected to the car and machine, through cloud technology to realize the control of common functions of the vehicle, such as opening and closing the engine, one-button opening and closing of the windows, unlocking and unlocking, map navigation, etc., and even the smart watch can be used to control the car seat Chair heating, open and close air conditioning, and other functions.
When smart watches enter the category of IoT, it puts forward higher requirements on the ecological construction capabilities of manufacturers. Devices need to truly share resources and mutual assistance in capabilities. At present, the ecosystem of manufacturers is independent and fragmented. The software and protocol standards of different devices are all different.
As a result, although the same Android smartwatch is used, the same IoT device cannot be shared.
If the platform of IoT can be unified, smart wearable devices such as smart watches are bound to usher in greater development opportunities.
At present, the Huawei Hongmeng system has such potential. As the first open-source and open operating system in China, Hongmeng system is born with the living soil of IoT products.
When smart watches first came out, their positioning was only an extension of smartphone functions. Today, smart watches have become an important fulcrum for mobile phone manufacturers to deploy IoT. “Connectivity” is only the beginning of smart watches. I believe that in the next few years, we will see smart More changes to the watch.
