Meizu is realizing its entry into the world of smartwatches: the Chinese company recently registered the MEIZU Watch and Flyme for Watch brands, which are more than eloquent about their possible use – especially if you are aware that Flyme is the name of the customized version of Android which is on board the company's smartphones, such as Samsung has its OneUI and Xiaomi its MIUI.
Meizu had already confirmed that a smartwatch would arrive later this year, and had even made mention of the name Flyme for Watch. For now we have no concrete and credible information on what both the smartwatch and the operating system will be like, except that the shape of the dial could be rectangular, in the style of Apple Watch. It is assumed that the software base is always Wear OS by Google, which does not allow too deep customization as happens in the smartphone OS. But that's all for now.
It is important to remember that Meizu is not entirely new to the wrist wearable market: in the past it has released Mix (image above and in the opening), which is a hybrid – a traditional watch with some advanced features, such as Bluetooth connectivity and the management of notifications. The watch has an analog dial with hands, sapphire crystal and steel case: it was funded through the crowd funding platform Taobao.
