Giving fight to the likes of Apple Watch and Samsung Gear smartwatch, Chinese technology giant Huawei on Tuesday launched Watch GT with “ultra-high” battery life starting at Rs 15,990.

The Huawei Watch GT would be available on Amazon.in starting March 19 at Rs 16,990 for the classic edition and Rs 15,990 for the sports edition, said the company which is fighting legal battles in the US over the ban on its products.


“We have received an overwhelming response on our current lineup of products and are now looking at expanding our portfolio, and providing the complete Huawei ecosystem experience to our customers here,” said Tornado Pan, Country Manager (Huawei Brand), Consumer Business Group, Huawei India.

“The HUAWEI Watch GT addresses one of the most common pain points of wearables: battery life,” Pan added.

Huawei Watch GT integrates the functional specifications in a 10.6 mm thick compact body and features a 1.39-inch, 454×454 AMOLED display.

The smart watch body incorporates a dual-crown design with stainless steel and ceramic bezels.

Huawei claimed that the Watch GT uses an innovative smart power-saving algorithm that enables the watch to enter normal mode if it identifies “dynamic scenario” or low-power consumption model if it identifies “static scenario”, allowing the smart watch to stay powered for up to two weeks on the frequent-use mode.

When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades.

The US researchers have discovered a class of immune cells that plays a role in miscarriage, which affects about a quarter of pregnancies.

Researchers at the University of California-San Francisco found that the recently discovered subset of cells known as extrathymic Aire-expressing cells in the immune system may prevent the mother's immune system from attacking the placenta and fetus.

The researchers showed that pregnant mice who did not have this subset of cells were twice as likely to miscarry, and in many of these pregnancies fetal growth was severely restricted.

"When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades -- not since the mother made a placenta when she herself was a fetus," said Eva Gillis-Buck, from UCSF.

"Our research suggests that this subset of immune cells is carrying out a sort of 'secondary education' -- sometimes many years after the better-known population of the educator cells have carried out the primary education in the thymus -- teaching T cells not to attack the fetus, the placenta and other tissues involved in pregnancy," she added. The findings are published in the journal Science Immunology.

It's not surprising that over half of those surveyed feel more comfortable using emojis than talking on the phone or in person.

The tiny emojis being shared on billions of devices worldwide can play a major role in digital communication, with most people saying that emoji compels them to feel more empathy towards others, according to an Adobe report.

Adobe's global emoji study found that emoji even helps people overcome language barriers and form connections that would otherwise be difficult to do.

"We were surprised and delighted by the discoveries made in the survey, most notably how enthusiastic respondents were for emoji as a means to express themselves," the company said in a statement.

Emojis sometimes get criticized for being overly saccharine, but this sweetness is key when it comes to diffusing some of the heaviness of online communication.

"Many of the emoji are focused on positive emotions, so it's easy to insert them into our conversations and lighten the mood," the Adobe study said.
