Huawei is reportedly gearing up to launch its next generation of smartwatches, the Watch 4 and Watch 4 Pro.

On certifications, the Huawei Watch 4 is codenamed “ARC-AL00” while the Watch 4 Pro is codenamed “MDS-AL10” and “MDS-AL00”. Here, “ARC” refers to “Arch” and “MDS” refers to “Medusa” which is the internal codename for Watch 4 and Watch 4 Pro.

Zirconium material

More importantly, Huawei is reportedly using zirconium material for frames in its upcoming smartwatches. Zircon is known for its durable and crack-resistant properties, but this could also mean these smartwatches end up being more expensive than the Huawei Watch 3 series.

Satellite communication

Other than this, the Watch 4 series could also be the first to bring a satellite SMS feature to smartwatches. Just like the Huawei Mate 50 series, Motorola Defy 2, and the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro series of smartphones. Moving on, the 3C certifications for these smartwatches also reveal 4G LTE connectivity and a 5W fast charging speed. Whereas the WiFi certification confirms that the Watch 4 series will include a WiFi 4 module with a single 2.4GHz band.
