Awesome Huawei Gaming Smartwatch Uses Wristband as Controller

New patent describes gaming smartwatch that uses wristband as the controller.

Huawei has some very creative minds in their team. A patent surfaced that describes a smartwatch running video games that can be played using the wristband.

You either play with the watch taking off on the wrist. The Huawei smartwatch consists of a fixing band with two touch areas, on both sides of the watch case. The watch strap can be activated by a slide or long-press movement. As soon as it´s activated a virtual keyboard will be shown on the watch strap.

n addition, different types of movements can be detected such as a tab, slide, pull, sway, twist, shake or press movement. The operation may also vary depending on whether the watch is being held horizontally or vertically. Users can, for instance, play a racing game while keeping the smartwatch vertical. They can steer through one side of the watch band and fire on the other.

Huawei has filed a patent with WIPO last December, according to Dutch tech site LetsGoDigital. The patent entitled ‘Smart wearable device and control method for smart wearable device’ was published on April 26, 2018. The application is a continuation of two earlier filed patents in China, back in 2015 and 2016. This could indicate Huawei has now further developed the technology and seriously sees a chance to implement this in an end product.

The Chinese tech giant gets a hard time in the US time selling their smartphones like the Huawei P20 Pro. Chinese competitor Xiaomi, who will go IPO soon, just demonstrated how to sell their electronics in the US with the Oculus Go. They use Facebook to sell the products the company is manufacturing - smart.
