Huawei has confirmed the existence of a smartwatch it is working on with a pair of built-in wireless headphones. “Huawei’s account on Chinese Twitter-like site Weibo announced the existence of the device on Wednesday and promised that all would be revealed on December 2,” reports The Register. “But Huawei has since postponed the launch of its winter 2022 consumer kit for unexplained reasons.” You can watch a teaser video on YouTube. The Verge adds: As the name suggests, the Huawei Watch Buds are a pair of headphones concealed in a smartwatch that resembles the Huawei Watch 3. Details are a bit sparse, so there’s no word on type yet. performance or battery life you’d expect from either product, but the watch itself appears to be running HarmonyOS.

While the concept sounds more than a little whimsical, it could be an attractive solution for runners and other exercisers who don’t want to carry around a separate case for the headphones during a workout. (If they don’t mind the extra bulk on their wrists.) […] Speaking to the elephant in the room, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to buy this wacky gadget in the US anyway, regardless of its legitimacy. Huawei products have been effectively banned in the country since the company was listed by the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security Entities in 2019.
