Update (11/24/2022) – GS
In early March, we saw a patent filed by Huawei that showed the design of a smart watch that had built-in wireless headphones, but we didn’t have many details about the product.
This week, photos of the alleged Huawei Watch Buds box began to circulate on the internet, showing that the headphones will be coupled inside the watch, which should also serve as a charging case.
Upon closer look at the image, we found that the smartwatch comes with a leather strap and steel frame. The overall design is quite similar to the Watch 3 series. Also, it bears the “Powered by HarmonyOS” badge, which means the device will come with the operating system out of the box.
From the image, it is not possible to know for sure the real format of the headphones and whether their allocation inside the watch will interfere a lot with the thickness of the device in relation to the standard models, but this is certainly a very bold idea and that, if well accepted , should be replicated by other manufacturers.
For now, we can only wait for the official product reveal to find out more details.

As much as it may seem like an entirely new concept, the DrPhone brand has already released some watches with built-in headphones. The concept is simple:
the body of smart watch can be used as a case for storing, recharging and transporting the wireless headphones. In addition, the smartwatch connects to the headphones and can stream music, notifications and make calls.
See an example below:
For now, as we are talking about a patent, it is still difficult to know when and if Huawei will launch this device someday. In any case, many manufacturers have been betting on the idea of integrating the watch and headphones even more, and another example of this is Xiaomi.
