Eying a bigger share of India’s growing wearable market, Chinese technology giant Huawei on Thursday said it would bring Kirin A1-powered devices to India next month. This chipset is expected to come with Huawei Watch GT 2.

Huawei claims the smartwatch can provide battery life of up to two weeks as the Kirin A1 enables “incredibly” low power consumption.

Kirin A1 comes with an advanced Bluetooth processing unit, a powerful audio processing unit, an ultra-low power application processor and an independent power management unit, Huawei said.

The chipset supports Bluetooth 5.1.

“The Kirin A1 is a very powerful chipset and is anticipated to bring in a paradigm shift in India’s wearable market,” Tornado Pan, Country Manager, Huawei Consumer Business Group, Huawei India, said in a statement.

“In line with our legacy of eliminating consumer pain points, products powered by this chipset will provide unparalleled performance, power efficiency and connectivity,” Pan said.

The chipset enables users to enjoy their exercise routines safely and better their performance, by leveraging enhanced data quality, Huawei said.
