Hitting the tech scene during MWC 2015 back in March, it’s taken awhile for the Huawei Watch to finally arrive on our shores. As they often say, better late than never. This late arrival isn’t unprecedented since the same smartwatch had issues launching in China but that was mainly due to Android Wear compatibility and Google services restrictions in the country.
Going for the rather traditional approach, the watch itself is a circular watch face that sports a sapphire crystal screen. Taking a second look at the device for those who aren’t too familiar with its specs; it carries a 1.4 inch AMOLED screen with a 400 x 400 resolution. While running the show underneath its stainless steel body is a Snapdragon 400 SoC mated to 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage.
Syncing and connectivity will go through Bluetooth 4.1 and you’ll find the typical fitness centric sensors inside, allowing you to track your heart rate, steps and calories too. The Huawei Watch has a 42mm footprint and on the top right you’ll notice a 18mm lug to go along with it. Powering everything will be a 300 mAh battery and at the same time it’s compatible with Android and iOS devices that run at least 4.3 or iOS 8.2, respectively.
Shown on Huawei’s Facebook page, no other details were revealed, just stating that it’ll arrive “real soon”. Sadly, the same goes for pricing information, so stay tune as we keep you up to date on its arrival and availability.
