When it comes to luxury or high-end smartwatches, Huawei isn’t probably the first thing tot pops up to the customer’s mind. The Chinese Company is well-known for its line of affordable Android smartphones, but this will change very soon. The first Huawei smartwatch was seen in March, at the Mobile World Congress.
So, Huawei unveiled a stainless steel body watch and a display protected by sapphire. It seems that they did a great job on its design, because that new smartwatch turned out to be a big attraction. However, after that unveil, a lot of unanswered questions remained, including how much this device will cost or when it will be available for purchases.
Well, it seems that after a big delay, Huawei has finally decided to answer these questions. For starters, one thing is sure, the new Huawei Watch isn’t cheap. Moreover, the cheapest model that will be released by Huawei will cost approximately 349 dollars and the more-expensive gold model watch will be available for 799 dollars. For this amount of money, customers will definitely get the best good looking smartwatch on the market, but it’s still just an Android Wear watch, meaning that the platform isn’t perfect yet.
To be mentioned that this Huawei Watch is the company’s first handset and just like other smartwatch, for example LG G Watch R and Moto 360, this devices runs Google’s Android Wear operating system. This means that the Huawei Watch is capable to display personalized Google Now card and notifications for emails, text messages and calls from Android or iPhone. However, on the software side, this new device doesn’t do anything different compared with other Android Wear watches. Moreover, the screen is protected by sapphire crystal, meaning that it will be hard to scratch.
It also features a 1.4-inch AMOLED display complete circle, making it one of the best looking devices on the market. The 400×400-pixel resolution on this watch is pretty high, and it is probably higher than of any other Android Wear Watch. This means that it has approximately 286 pixels per inch. Inside the watch, users will find a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage for apps and music.
