Huawei started allowing third-party apps on its smartwatches

Huawei is currently one of the biggest players in the smartphone market. Its proposals follow what consumers want and bring constant innovation and improvements on a periodic basis, to offer even more.

With their own operating system, Huawei smartwatches seek to maintain their independence from Google and other platforms. Thus, LiteOS offers what users need, although extra apps are not present. That changes now with the opening of Huawei to third-party apps on its watches.


Important change from Huawei in its watches

If for most Huawei smartphone users the apps present are sufficient, there are always those who want more. The brand had chosen to keep LiteOS closed to external programmers and thus fully control what was available there.

The brand already had this component developed, but kept it reserved for its proposals, accessible from the AppGallery. Now, and from what the brand announced, HMS has changed again and this time the external app for Huawei smartwatches has opened.

AppGallery will have apps for smartwatches

To start this change, Huawei decided to open its doors and that of its watches to the Fitify app. This is dedicated to physical exercise, thus complementing everything that Huawei already had in this area in its smartwatches.

Like the version dedicated to smartphones, it will be on the AppGallery, in the area dedicated to smartwatches and accessible by the Health app. Everything else will happen later on the smartwatch, making it possible to feed the app and receive training instructions on LiteOS.

Huawei hopes that by opening this aspect of its ecosystem further, it will be able to attract even more programmers. It will make use of the same development kits it has for Android and which have been working very well, as can be seen by the growth of the AppGallery and its proposals.

This is an important change to further increase the offer that Huawei has on its smartphones. It will all start with the Watch GT2 Pro, but it will certainly be extended later to other models of the brand’s smartwatches.
