Name the new HONOR smartwatch and win products until 2020
Huawei has been gearing up to launch a small-form wearable for a while now, but doesn’t appear to be able to settle on a name. Originally known as the HONOR Band Zero, HUAWEI has ditched the old title and is asking all of you out there to help the company come up with a better one.
As a reward, HUAWEI will be sending the person who comes up with the best name all of the company’s upcoming products right through until 2020. That’s four or so years of future HUAWEI gadgets for free, just for picking a name. To enter, simply submit your name suggestions via the HONOR page on Facebook or through @HonorEU on Twitter. Apparently the challenge hasn’t begun quite yet, so keep an eye on those pages for extra details.
Along with the contest, HUAWEI has also released a few details about the smartwatch. It features a 1.06-inch circular display, G-sensor technology, and a battery capacity that can last 3 days on a single charge. The smartwatch is also IP68 rated for water and dust resistance.
“Our mission is to enable superior mobile Internet experiences for the Internet generation and era. The wearable band will allow just that,” – George Zhao, President of HONOR.
HUAWEI originally teased the smartwatch back in July, so some launch details have been quite some time coming. The company states that the wearable will be available from its official vMall online store sometime in Q4 2015. The watch will retail for €79 / £59 in a choice of black, white or khaki color options.
What would you call the upcoming HONOR smartwatch?
London, September 01, 2015 – HONOR surprised the crowd at last Thursday’s launch of the European version of the honor 7 smartphone, with a new honor wearable device for the wrist.
Complete with a 1.06-inch circular full-screen display and an industry-leading G-sensor powered by advanced algorithms, the wearable device is the ultimate fashion gadget. It will provide users with the ability to easily and accurately monitor their performance when engaged in exercise or sporting activities. The wearable also offers sleep quality monitoring and calling reminding. It is 10 meter water resistant and dust proof with IP68 certification. It has a long lasting battery for 3 days.
HONOR announced a competition to name the product, where the person who submits the winning name will receive all HONOR products for the next five years on sale in his/her country, until 2020. The yet-to-be-named wearable will be compatible with Android devices. Entries of the campaign should be made via the HONOR page on Facebook or via @HonorEU on Twitter.
The wearable band will be available initially in black, white and khaki colours from Q4, 2015 via vMall (see separate announcement) and later via the other usual online sales channels, at a recommended price of €79 / £59.
‘This new product demonstrates our commitment to customers and capability to bring innovative and smart technology to the market. Our mission is to enable superior mobile Internet experiences for the Internet generation and era. The wearable band will allow just that,’ commented George Zhao, President of HONOR.
