While many other smartwatches already have a built-in speaker, Huawei is the first Android Wear-based watch to come with a speaker. So far, Android Wear doesn’t support a speaker, and the one found in the Huawei Watch is currently absolutely useless. But it points to the fact taht in near future, Android Wear could get speaker support.
But is that really a great news?
Well, this isn’t a killer innovation but could add a new dimension to the Android Wear watches, which currently allow playing music and other sounds only through a Bluetooth headset or speaker.
While some might argue that the speaker could be nothing more than a gesture of making sure the watch is future-proofed, and Google might not have any intentions to introduce speaker support in near future. However, it’s very unlikely for Huawei to go through a massive hassle of making and adding a component in an already space-challenged gadget that might never be of any use.
