A few months ago, Chinese manufacturer, Meizu, recently announced that it will launch the “Flyme for Watch” in Q4 2020. Technically, this announcement means that the company will release a system for its smartwatches. However, considering that Meizu does not have many smartwatches, it also seems to suggest that a new Meizu smartwatch is coming. Since the Meizu MIX smartwatch which was released in 2016, the company has not focused on smartwatches. A recent report shows that the company has applied for two watch-related trademarks.
According to the report, Meizu applied for the registration of two new trademarks “MEIZU WATCH” and “FLYME FOR WATCH” on July 20. “FLYME” is the name of the operating system Meizu uses for its smartphone products. Both trademarks are designated as jewelry and watches in the 14th International Classification and are currently under registration.
During the announcement of “Flyme for Watch” on June 24th, the company said “Smart visual design and intimate interactive experience should not only be on mobile phones. Flyme for Watch, see you in Q4 2020”.
On the poster celebrating the 8th anniversary of the Flyme system, Meizu also showed the concept sketch of the Meizu Watch. This watch comes with a square display. It appears that Meizu will modify its Flyme system to suit its upcoming smartwatches. Since Meizu does not have many smartwatches, we do not know what the company can offer. However, let us take a look at its 2016 Meizu MIX smartwatch
What does the 2016 Meizu MIX smartwatch offer?
Meizu’s light and intelligent quartz smartwatch use 316L steel for its case, dial, watch hands, and strap. It’s resistant to corrosion, high temperatures, and wear, and its smooth elegance combines hard materials and soft design. It is scratchproof and shockproof and can withstand high temperatures.
This smartwatch uses the Swiss movement, which is known for its long history and exquisite craftsmanship. The watch combines smartwatch functionality and long battery life with traditional movement and precise time. This light intelligent smartwatch fits snugly on the wrist. It vibrates and blinks when there’s a call, short message, or message (QQ, WeChat, Dingding, or Sina Weibo) so you don’t miss anything. The clock can also be set up with schedule notifications.
Its high-precision sensor can monitor your steps and calorie consumption during exercise, and record and display daily activities. When switched to the small dial, you can choose what to display, e.g., the week’s exercise with the second hand. Switching between modes is also super easy. This smartwatch is powered by a battery that can last up to 240 days, so daily charging will be a thing of the past. It’s waterproof up to 30m – but you can’t take it in the sauna.
