Software update for the Huawei Watch improves voice recognition


Right before the company launches its Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotion, Huawei is pushing an over-the-air software update to its Android Wear device. The Huawei Watch is receiving a software update that improves voice recognition, activity tracking capabilities, and a standby screen while charging the smartwatch.

Here are the release notes:

  • Optimized the mic gain for improved “Ok Google” detection
  • Optimized the fitness tracking to improve step counting accuracy
  • Optimized the Bluetooth reconnect mechanism
  • Add a new app to display the battery level when charging
  • Add a new watch face that user can self-customize
  • Add fusion sensor of gravity/linear acceleration/rotation vector

Despite the software update rolling out today, Huawei says every Huawei Watch should have the latest build by next week. The company will be alerting users once the software update is ready for installation after downloading automatically.

Huawei’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotion takes up to $100 off of select Huawei Watch models. And the promotion does include the newest model that comes in Rose Gold with a real 22K rose gold body and an alligator-pressed brown leather strap.
