Huawei Watch Review: The Huawei Watch is the company’s first try at producing a wearable using Google’s Android Wear operating system, and the main focus has been very much put on the styling.
Despite Huawei launching a plethora of good-looking, high-spec and usually nicely received smartphones over the last couple of years, the Chinese company is trying somewhat to establish itself as a desirable brand outside of its homeland. It has a 1.4-inch AMOLED display and is the first Android watch to boast sapphire glass.
The Huawei Watch carries scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass, just like the Apple Watch, and a cold-forged, stainless steel unibody design. It comes in gold, black or silver and there are each fine-grain leather and cold-forged 316L stainless steel strap options.
This is no plastic and rubber hatchet job – the Huawei Watch is trendy and well-made. With a thickness of 11.3mm and diameter of 42mm, it’s a touch more compact than the new 42mm Moto 360.
The Huawei Watch leads the round LG display path, rather than limping along Moto ‘s ‘flat-tyre’ Avenue – about the black dead space at the bottom of the 360’s screen. The AMOLED display is a 1.4-inch 400 x 400 one with a ppi rely on 286. That’s the highest on every Android Wear device to date – although the soon-to-launch LG Watch Urbane Second Version will trump it with a 480 x 480 panel at 348ppi.
Hardware and Battery life
The IP67 waterproof Huawei Watch is controlled by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor and 512MB of RAM and has a 4GB of onboard storage. That IP rating suggests dust should not be a problem and it’ll survive a dunk in as much as 1m of water for half an hour.
Huawei quotes a battery life of 1.5 days, and we can’t argue with that. We have had it on for a week now, including brightness up full-whack, and with all the connectivity options firing, and we have changed it five times.
Certainly, Android Wear is the cusp of the experience surrounding the Huawei Watch, and as talked about many times earlier than, this watch manages to examine all the right boxes, however without really excelling, or being truly exciting. The is what is anticipated from the Android Wear experience, though. Some cards require a lot of swiping around, including voice input, certain shortcuts are available, and unless specific applications are established along with your smartphone apps, that’s essentially all there’s to it.back to menu ↑
As far as the price is affected, This Watch does fall at the higher end of the cost spectrum, with the potential to get fairly costly relying on which version of the watch you need. The base silver model with the leather-based band will set you back $349, the addition of a clasping metal band will carry that as much as $399, and if you wish to go fully gold, $799 is what you’ll have to spend.
The Huawei Watch may be the first Android Wear device to get the “watch” aspect of the smartwatch right, however that does result in a premium price point. The device doesn’t go above and beyond the competitors by a massive margin either, even though the Android Wear experience is what’s the limiting issue.back to menu ↑
