zte-bluewatchZTE is a manufacturer that has rolled out smartphones as well as tablets, and it seems that they are working on expanding their horizons by wading into the wearable tech space through the unveiling of its first smartwatch, which is called the ZTE BlueWatch. The ZTE BlueWatch would be accompanied by an ePaper display, where sensors would enable it to function as a pedometer in addition to an activity tracker, not to mention boasting of support for third party apps via an API that ZTE intends to open up in the future.

It does look a whole lot like a Pebble smartwatch actually, but with the ZTE BlueWatch, it hails from one of the major players in the Chinese smartphone industry. So far, from what we know, a Pebble and BlueWatch when placed alongside one another, the Pebble display is touted to be a whole lot more vivid. However, do bear in mind that ZTE is showing off a prototype of the Bluewatch at this point in time, and as for the launch date, it remains to be seen just when that will happen. The ZTE BlueWatch has also been specially designed to pair with your handset via Bluetooth connectivity, where you can then check out display notifications concerning incoming messages on your wrist.
