Rumors surfaced last week that at least three mobile device companies are considering using Huawei’s HarmonyOS operating system in their products. And now the rumor has ceased to be one third: Meizu has officially confirmed the use of HarmonyOS.
This is evidenced by the official teaser published today. The caption in the picture translates as “Hello HongMeng!” (in China, this is called HarmonyOS). As expected, HarmonyOS will be used in Meizu Lipro series devices, but the fact that on May 31, when the official announcement of Meizu regarding the use of HarmonyOS, the Meizu Watch will be presented, has not happened: it is very possible that HarmonyOS will be used in these smart watch. If so, the proprietary Flyme OS interface will be installed on top of HarmonyOS, not Wear OS.
At the same time, a new teaser with details about the Meizu Watch appeared on the Web today. The picture talks about the possibilities of monitoring vital signs with a smart watch: for example, they will track heart rate 24/7, will be able to monitor blood oxygenation, sleep and pressure (!). Regarding the latter: it is not entirely clear what is meant. But if we are talking about blood pressure, then Meizu in this case will outstrip Huawei itself – that watch with blood pressure monitoring will appear only in the second half of the year.
