Huawei is holding its MWC event in a few hours, and the company has accidentally leaked the smartwatch it plans to launch in Barcelona today. The Chinese telecom giant had earlier taken over Barcelona airport teasing the Huawei Watch. However, the company mistakenly uploaded two teasers on its official YouTube channel (which are now removed) revealing the stunning Android Wear smartwatch.

The two videos showcase Huawei’s thought process and struggles while making the smartwatch. It shows how the smartwatch is designed, their core thinking behind the classic styling, and the varied options available for purchase choice.

Huawei Watch is made with sapphire glass and stainless steel body. The watch runs on Android Wear, and has an in-built microphone. In the video, Benjamin Norton, Designer of Wearable Products at Huawei, speaks about the importance of making the luxury design, while trying to keep the elegance and technology intact. “Everyone has his own ideal watch, a watch he truly desires. But what smartwatch does a consumer really want? It is their ideas that inspired us to create this piece,” he said.

The video boasts of a heart rate monitor, instant notification and Google Now features. The Huawei event at MWC begins at 7.30PM tonight. Even though the videos were pulled off, Droid Life managed to grab them before they were pulled back down.
