ZTE to build smartwatch, as well Chinese giant ZTE has confirmed that the company is working on a smartwatch.
Lu Qianhao, the company's head of handset marketing strategy, made the announcement this week.

"We are focusing on the mainstream market," says Qianhao. The watch will be similar in feature set to the existing watches on the market, such as the Samsung Galaxy Gear and Sony Smartwatch 2, but will be significantly cheaper.

The watch will be unveiled in the Q1 and getting into consumer's hands in the Q2 of next year. The watch will only be compatible with ZTE smartphones, just like the Galaxy Gear only works with Samsung devices

As expected, ZTE will sell the device in China first, but eventually it is expected to make its way to the EU and U.S.
