If you’re tired of blocky, mechanical smartwatches or dull-looking digital accessories, you’d definitely want to hear this piece of news – Huawei has announced Fashion Forward, a new vision for their wearable products, taking their upcoming launches in a style-focused direction.
According to the brand’s spokesperson, Fashion Forward “is about taking the integration of technology and fashion to the next level, empowering users to personalise their health and sports journey without compromising style.”
For years, we’ve seen an emerging market in between fashion and technology.
Most fashion or tech brands seem to have focused on AR (Augmented Reality) technologies, while the remainder are products that either lean towards “Fashion” aspect or the “Technology” aspect, not having truly given consumers an equal best of both worlds.
Huawei’s new Fashion Forward manifesto signals that the brand is now taking on these gaps in the market, weaving in fashion and design into its R&D process that has already achieved breakthroughs in Health and Fitness wearable technology.
Continuing with the latest Huawei Watch GT 4, here’s how the brand is planning to turn its technologies into wearable art.
Evolving with the times: Fusing trendy design with timeless craftmanship
Perhaps the biggest decision dividing the consumer market now is the inability to choose between a smartwatch and a timeless analogue timepiece.
While these markets have remained separate for some time, it seems that the future still favours smartwatches – with the bulk of Gen Z consumers preferring smartwatches over luxury watches or even prefer wearing both analogue and smartwatches.
Huawei addresses this existing dilemma in the market to blend haute couture inspired aesthetic design with cutting-edge technology, aiming to enhance user-centric experience through purposeful design.
This is already evident with the latest Huawei Watch GT 4, the 46mm edition in Octagon reminds us of classic octagonal designs adopted by iconic watches like the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak collection.
On the other hand, the 41mm’s Pendant design is fashioned to resemble jewellery, giving the smartwatch a more elegant look, giving you the confidence to take it out with you to formal galas or even to a casual night out with your friends.

The YES Programme is a business-led collaboration with government to reduce unemployment by giving our youth an opportunity to develop new skills and gain meaningful workplace experience, which will improve their chances of finding long-term future employment significantly. A pivotal advantage of engaging in a YES program lies in the hands-on experience it offers. Participants immerse themselves in authentic work environments, acquiring practical skills and knowledge directly applicable to their forthcoming careers. This hands-on exposure proves invaluable in establishing a robust foundation for professional advancement, thereby increasing the potential for securing employment in the future.
Furthermore, membership in a YES program opens the door to exposure in one of the largest financial services institutes. This exposure grants participants a distinctive understanding of the industry, allowing them to glean insights from seasoned professionals. The accompanying networking opportunities can be advantageous for expanding one’s professional connections within the field, further contributing to increased job prospects.
Active involvement in a YES program not only provides experience but also opens doors to potential permanent employment opportunities. Demonstrating exemplary performance and maintaining a positive attitude are essential, as individuals may be considered for permanent roles within the organization, offering stability and long-term career prospects.
It is crucial to recognize that participants in a YES program receive a stipend rather than a conventional wage. This stipend, designed to cover basic transportation costs, serves as a practical support during their program engagement. While the stipend may only address fundamental transportation needs, the overall benefits and prospects for professional advancement, coupled with exposure in a leading financial services institute, make it a worthwhile opportunity for motivated individuals with a positive outlook.

Bachelor’s degree in Commerce, OR Engineering OR IT
Postgraduate Diploma in Banking OR IT
