India is currently in the third phase of lockdown to control the spread of COVID-19. During this lockdown, a number of relaxations have been implemented, like allowing e-commerce platforms to start delivering non-essential products to Green and Orange zones.
Now that a few of these restrictions have slowly been lifted, we are seeing various new electronic devices like smartphones and smartwatches being launched in the country. Today we will be taking a look at all of the smartwatches that are going to launch very soon in India.
Huawei Watch GT 2e
Huawei has just launched its Watch GT 2e in India priced at Rs 11,990. The watch is being made available on both Flipkart and Amazon. Customers purchasing the watch before May 21 will get a free pair of the company’s own AM61 Bluetooth Earphones.
Huawei Watch GT 2e comes with a circular stainless steel body with an integrated strap. It is available in Graphite Black, Lava Red, Mint Green and Icy White colour options.
The watch sports a 1.39-inch AMOLED and is powered by the company’s own Kirin A1 processor. It comes with 100 workout modes, which include 15 dedicated professional workout modes. It also comes with a SpO2 feature, which lets users monitor the oxygen levels in blood easily. The company claims that the watch has a battery life of two weeks.
Apart from these, the watch comes with the company’s own Truseen 3.5 heart rate monitoring technology, TruRelex stress management technology and Trusleep 2.0 technology.
Realme has been teasing its upcoming smartwatch for some time now. Yesterday, the company dropped its official teaser on its Twitter handle. In the teaser video, the company confirmed that the watch will be called Realme Watch. The design of the watch looks quite similar to the Apple Watch. Today the company dropped another teaser on its Twitter, hinting that the smartwatch will launch alongside the Realme TV on May 25.
Not much is known about the Realme Watch as of now, however, we recently saw an XDA Developers report, in which all of the key specifications for the Realme Watch were released. The report claims that the watch will come with a 1.4-inch TFT LCD display. It will sport a heart rate sensor and a blood oxygen level monitor.
The device will come with an IP68 dust and water resistance rating. It will be backed by a 160mAh battery, which the report claims will last seven days.
Oppo recently launched its first smartwatch, called the Oppo Watch in China. The company did not reveal any plans of bringing the device to international markets including India at that time. It seems that the company is looking to launch it in India soon. The device recently showed up on the BIS website, which hints at an imminent launch.
Oppo Watch sports a 1.91-inch 3D flexible hyperboloid display and looks quite similar to the Apple Watch. It is powered by the company’s own Dual-Chip Endurance System, which includes a primary Qualcomm Snapdragon processor paired with a secondary Oppo Apollo processor.
Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi has confirmed that it is developing a smartwatch that it will soon launch in India. The company is yet to provide a launch date for that same. However, the smartwatch has received BIS certification, hinting that it will be launching pretty soon in the country.
Not much is known about the Redmi Watch as of now, but reports state that it will run Google’s Wear OS operating system and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear processor.

Sega announces the Game Gear Micro – MobileSyrup
Unfortunately, this isn’t the Dreamcast 2. It also isn’t a successor to the Sega Saturn.
To celebrate the company’s 60th anniversary, Sega has revealed a miniature re-release of its 90s handheld console, the Game Gear. Several questions about the console remain unknown, including if it’s coming to North America and what games will be included in the handheld. The Game Gear Micro’s promotional pictures feature Sonic, which makes sense given the blue hedgehog remains Sega’s most recognizable mascot.
Regarding cost, the price comes to ¥4,980 (roughly $62 CAD). Colours include ‘Black,’ ‘Blue,’ ‘Yellow’ and ‘Red.’
The original 8-bit Game Gear was released back in 1991. While the console featured a backlit display and better visuals than Nintendo’s competing Game Boy, the handheld featured poor battery life and was relatively bulky and heavy. Notable Game Gear games include Sonic Chaos, Columns, Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic Triple Trouble, Tails Adventure, Defenders of the Oasis and more.
The Game Gear eventually failed to beat the Game Boy and was ultimately discontinued in 1997.
Notable Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu recently teased that a significant announcement was coming from Sega this week, with some rumours pointing towards Microsoft utilizing Sega’s brand recognition in Japan to release the Xbox Series X in the region.
Sega Celebrates Its 60th Anniversary With A Micro Version Of The Game Gear – Nintendo Life
Sega has just announced the Game Gear Micro. As the name suggests, this is a mini version of its original 1990 system.
According to a Twitter image within the source code of the official teaser website, this micro device will launch in Japan on 6th October for ¥4,980, which is expected to translate to about $50 / €50 here in the west.
This new but old system will be available in black, blue, yellow, and red.

Safari in iOS and iPadOS 14 Might Include Built-In Translator, Full Apple Pencil Support – MacRumors
Safari’s built-in translation feature would allow users to translate web pages without using a third-party app or service. If such a feature comes to iOS 14, we can probably also count on it coming to the next-generation version of macOS as well.
The code suggests the translation option will be available for each website that’s visited, but an automatic translation feature will also be able to be turned on, similar to Chrome’s automatic translation. Apple also appears to be testing translation options for other apps, such as the App Store, allowing users to do things like read reviews in other languages.
Apple’s translations are powered by the Neural Engine and may work with or without an internet connection.
As for the Apple Pencil, Apple may be planning to add full support for Apple Pencil input on websites, which would allow it to be used for drawing and marking up. This feature would be limited to iPadOS 14 as the Apple Pencil does not work on iPhones.
Earlier this year, MacRumors discovered new PencilKit features that will allow users to handwrite text in any text input field using the Apple Pencil, with the handwritten content then converted into standard text.
The code also indicates Apple is working on a kind of “Magic Fill” feature that will let users draw a general shape in an app and have it filled in by the operating system.
The leaked version of iOS 14 that’s been floating around the internet is an early version of the software and it’s not clear if Apple’s development plans have changed or if some features might be delayed due to the global health crisis.
We’ll find out what we can expect in iOS 14 on June 22, which is when Apple’s virtual WWDC event is set to kick off.
