India is the third largest wearables market in the world after China and the US

The much-awaited Huawei GT-2 smartwatch which is set to be launched in India on December 5, will be available across offline and online channels, the company said on Monday.

The watch is equipped with Huawei’s proprietary Kirin A1 chipset, which augments its battery life drastically.
