That could change in the coming months, with the arrival of the Huawei Mate Watch, which would be It could be the first smartwatch with HarmonyOS.

Unless there is a change in plans, Huawei is expected to renew the Mate series in the fourth quarter of the year. The Huawei Mate 30 was announced in September last year along with the Huawei Watch GT 2 which launched its own processor for wearable devices, the Kirin A1. This year, the first would be the software, with the HarmonyOS version for smartwatches.
Little is known about the Huawei Mate Watch other than its name, which was registered with CNIPA, the National Chinese Intellectual Property Administration last month. Under the Mate brand, it would make sense that will be launched at the same time as the next Huawei Mate 40.
Now comes the interesting part. According to @ RODENT950, a well-known Chinese filter, the first smartwatch under the Mate brand would also be the first with HarmonyOS. The filter adds that its launch could take place on China’s National Day, October 1st.
If Huawei’s schedule has been met, the Mate watch is the first smartwatch powered by HongMengOS, will be released with the Mate 40 series.

Huawei introduced HarmonyOS to the company almost a year ago, as integrated solution for all types of platforms, from mobiles to televisions, including cars, smart speakers and VR glasses. So far we’ve only seen HarmonyOS in action on multiple TVs under the Honor brand and on the Huawei AX3 router.
The HarmonyOS roadmap already mentioned the arrival of connected watches and bracelets in 2020
The truth is, the original HarmonyOS roadmap mentioned that the version for smartwatches and activity bracelets would arrive in 2020, so the pieces of the puzzle seem to match so it’s the Huawei Mate Watch that breaks the spear in favor of the operating system itself. So far, Huawei has only opted for Wear OS for Huawei Watch and Huawei Watch 2, while other smartwatches have their own system.
