Huawei demonstrates commitment to UK retail with new Currys PC World partnership to launch flagship range of smartwatches – Retail Times
In its 20e year of operation in the UK, Huawei today announced that it will invest more than $ 1.2 million in a partnership with major retailer Currys PC World as it launches its flagship smartwatch, the HUAWEI WATCH 3. The retail partnership will see installations delivered to over 227 stores in the UK and Republic of Ireland.
The new exclusive partnership with Currys PC World will see extensive branding and in-store training for the WATCH 3, as well as other critically acclaimed products in the Huawei apparel line, including the HUAWEI Watch GT2 series, HUAWEI Watch Fit and HUAWEI Band 6.
The investment continues Huawei’s long-term commitment to UK retail and the UK economy, to which Huawei has contributed £ 3.3 billion to overall GDP.. Last year, Huawei opened the doors of its very first own-branded store in Westfield Stratford City, which provided new jobs for local residents – some of the 51,000 Huawei-supported jobs in the UK. The new store joins the Huawei Service Center which opened at Wembley in 2019.
Anson Zhang, Managing Director of Huawei’s UK Consumer Business Group, said: “Retailing in the UK has faced many challenges over the years, including the pandemic. We’re excited to show our support through this massive investment, providing Huawei and Currys PC World customers with the best retail experiences. We believe our continued partnership with Currys PC World will help stimulate the UK’s growing appetite for wearable devices and strengthen our commitment to UK customers.
Launched in June 2021, the WATCH 3 is Huawei’s latest flagship smartwatch. The new watch runs on HarmonyOS to provide consumers with convenient and smart life experiences, supported by continuous health monitoring features. The stylish new WATCH 3 watch features a high-precision temperature sensor for the first time to support skin temperature detection, up to 14 days of battery life and independent calls for the ultimate smart watch experience.
