Huawei announces a budget smartwatch boasting “minimalistic” design

Huawei fans were hit in the gut when the company revealed production was far behind schedule on the Huawei Watch. Originally slated for release in March 2015, the launch date was pushed back to September or October of 2015.

But to tide Android smartwatch fanatics over is the announcement of the Huawei Honor Band Zero. So far only renderings are available, which show a design that Huawei itself calls “minimalistic” and Scandinavian-inspired.

Judging by the circular face of the device, its likely that the smartwatch will tell time and track some range of basic activities. Remember, though, that Honor is Huawei’s budget-conscious line of products, so the watch can only get so many and still remain affordable.

Even so, with basic water resistance, a light sensor, activity tracking capabilities, and a sleek design, the Band Zero looks like a low-end option to look forward to.

We’ll let you know more information as it emerges.
