March 2015 - October 2018


The idea of the round smartwatch isn’t exactly new as we’ve seen both the famed Moto 360 come from Motorola and the LG G Watch R (as well as the more recent LG Watch Urbane) come from LG. This watch is probably the closest that Android Wear devices have come to looking like traditional watches, though, packing attractive traditional (and interchangeable) strap options, a stainless steel case, and a sapphire crystal lens.

As for specs, the Huawei Watch packs a 1.4-inch screen in a 42mm body with a resolution of 400 x 400 at 286 pixels per inch. The device packs 512 MB of RAM, and 4 GB of on-board storage, as well as a slew of sensors including a gyroscope + accelerometer, PPG (photoplethysmogram), and a barometer. There’s a built-in mic (for Google Now, of course), a 300 mAh battery, and the device comes in black, silver or gold. Lastly, Huawei touts that they’ve built their own apps on top of Android Wear, including one for fitness tracking.

Original Huawei Watch and Watch 2 pick up Wear OS UI refresh, performance improvements

Back in the days of Android Wear, the Huawei Watch was the piece of hardware that turned heads and took out wallets. Now, over three years later, that product is still being updated, and the latest update delivers a refreshed interface and improvements to performance on both the first and second generations of the product.

Android Wear 2.0 seems to be rolling out to Huawei Watch for preview users, full release likely coming soon

Android Wear 2.0 updates have been relatively rare for a lot of smartwatches, and the Huawei Watch has strangely been one of the devices lacking an update, even though it was a part of the developer preview program from day one. Now, it looks like the update is finally about to be pushed…

Huawei Watch Stories April 11, 2017

If you’ve read any of my thoughts on Android Wear, you know that I’m not exactly bullish on the platform lately. I’ve still yet to keep a smartwatch on my wrist more than a month or two, and many I know share the same thought — is it worth the trouble if we always have our phones? It appears that Huawei rotating CEO Eric Xu Zhijun agrees with this sentiment, as he shared in a recent interview…

Update: Another Huawei rep is now telling Android Central that the watch is not getting Android Pay.

The original Huawei Watch is a work of art to a lot of people, and it’s one of the best looking smartwatches we’ve ever seen. That’s why many were disappointed to see the company drastically change its design language on the Huawei Watch 2. Now, though, it seems that most users won’t have any reason to upgrade, at least if a recent report is true…

The original Huawei Watch may pick up Android Wear 2.0 later this month

Android Wear 2.0 debuted on the LG Watch Sport and Watch Style, and now, about a month later, it seems it’s finally on its way to older hardware. Today, Huawei has seemingly confirmed that the update will be heading to the original Huawei Watch starting later this month.

A new report today says that Huawei is planning a second generation Huawei Watch for potential launch at Mobile World Congress next month in Barcelona, Spain. The watch is said to bring a “sportier” look compared to the first device, as well as a to-be-expected 42mm size and a 1.4-inch display. One major feature mentioned in the report, however, sounds awfully familiar…

Android Wear options continue to thin out as the Huawei Watch disappears from Google Store

As its press event kicks off at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Huawei has announced a pair of new smartwatches that will launch in Q1 of this year. Much like we reported earlier, both of these watches are designed with the female market in mind. The two watches are called the “Elegant” and “Jewel” models and are variants of the Huawei Watch we’ve come to know.

The Huawei Watch is without a doubt one of the hottest wearables of 2015. The watch made waves this year as one of Huawei’s big breakout product launches in the United States, paired with the Nexus 6P — which is also a hit, widely regarded as the best Nexus phone ever. Now, people familiar with the matter have told 9to5Google that the Chinese company is planning to launch a made-for-women version(s) of the watch at CES 2016, and has already begun development of a second generation watch scheduled for the second half of next year…

The Huawei Watch is quite possibly one of this year’s best surprises. We didn’t know Huawei was working on an Android Wear watch until they showed it to us at MWC, and when it did, we knew it was going to take some beating. Now that it’s on the market and I’ve had my time with the final, released product, I can safely say my first impressions have lasted. This watch is fantastic, and easily a contender for the title of “best Android Wear watch.”

Get up to $100 off Huawei Watch in company’s Black Friday promotion

Update: The discounted prices are also now available at Amazon.

Black Friday is just a few days away, and tech companies are now tripping over each other to make sure they get products in to people’s hands when the made shopping rush begins later this week. Several retailers have kicked off their Black Friday deals early, including the likes of Amazon.

Now, Huawei has revealed its planned discounts for Black Friday, and it looks pretty good if you’re in the market for an Android Wear watch or an affordable smartphone. Here are the products discounted, and their prices:

  • Huawei Watch – Stainless w/black leather strap – $299 (regular $349)
  • Huawei Watch – Stainless w/stainless mesh band – $319 (regular $399)
  • Huawei Watch – Stainless w/stainless metal link band – $319 (regular $399)
  • Huawei Watch – Black Stainless w/black stainless metal link band – $349 (regular $449)

To stay on top of all things Black Friday, be sure to bookmark the 9to5Toys Black Friday page which will be updated constantly to include all the best and latest discounts anywhere online.

PSA: The ‘rose gold’ stainless steel Huawei Watch is now available for $700

Huawei Watch is the star of the Android Wear show right now, but availability of higher-end gold models has been almost non-existent up to this point. Now, as per Huawei’s official blog, it looks like the rose gold variant (which, to us, looks like regular gold) is now available for purchase.

This is the “Rose Gold Stainless Steel with Brown Leather Strap” model specifically, and it’s currently in stock over at the GetHuawei website for $700. The watch has a 22K gold plated case, a “coin-edge top ring” and an alligator pressed strap. It looks nice, if you ask us.

Like the other models, this watch has a 1.4-inch AMOLED displaycovered by sapphire crystal. The Huawei Watch is powered by a 300 mAh battery, a 1.2Ghz Snapdragon 400 processor, and packs 512 MB of RAM along with 4 GB of flash storage.

Nexus 6P buyers get $50 discount on Huawei Watch

Huawei has taken a leaf from Apple’s book with its latest promotion, offering discount on its wearable product when customers order a smartphone. Buyers who order the Nexus 6P direct from Huawei can get $50 off the Huawei Watch when they buy both devices at the same time. That means you’ll be able to get one of this year’s best Android Wear smartwatches for as little as $299.

This deal, of course, is more than likely being launched to counter Apple’s very similar promotion in which customers purchasing an iPhone and an Apple Watch at the same time receive $50 discount in select stores. Overall though, there’s still a huge price difference between buying the new Nexus and buying the new iPhone. Nexus 6P models start at $499, where the iPhone 6s begins at $649. Huawei Watch begins at the same price as the Apple Watch Sport, and is $200+ cheaper than the stainless Apple Watch models.

If you want to take advantage of the deal, head on over to GetHuawei.com and add the Nexus 6P and Huawei Watch to your basket. The $50 discount will be applied automatically. All in, the cheapest combination will set you back about $800, that’s only $50 more than the price of the cheapest 16GB iPhone 6s Plus on its own. That’s really not bad when you’re getting two of the best Android/Android Wear products available right now.

The charging cradle is the first accessory for the Huawei Watch to become available via the Google Store. The watch itself went up for pre-order on the Google Store at the beginning of last month and began shipping not too far after.

The Huawei Watch features a 1.4-inch screen with a 400 x 400 resolution, coming out to 286 pixels per inch. It sports 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of on-board storage, a gyroscope, barometer, and accelerometer, all packed inside a 42mm case and powered by a 300mAh battery.

Huawei Watch is now available for shipping within 1-2 days from Google Store, Amazon

If you pre-ordered the Huawei Watch, you might be interested in knowing that your order has most likely shipped. If you haven’t ordered a Huawei Watch yet, though, and you plan to, I have especially good news: The device is now available for shipping within 1-2 business days from the Google Store, Amazon, and other outlets.

The Huawei Watch starts at $350, with model availability varying between outlets. The Google Store, for instance, only offers the “Silver” Huawei Watch with a Milanese-like bracelet. Amazon, however, offers three different variants, black w/ link bracelet, silver w/ leather band, and stainless w/ stainless link bracelet, at $350, $400, and $450, respectively.

The Huawei Watch packs a 1.4-inch screen in a 42mm body and a 400 x 400 resolution screen at 286 pixels per inch. It sports 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of on-board storage, a gyroscope & accelerometer, PPG (photoplethysmogram), and a barometer. There’s also a built-in mic, with all of this powered by a 300 mAh battery.

Huawei has finally confirmed officially where and when we can get our hands on its Android Wear smartwatch. The Huawei Watch was originally shown off at MWC in Barcelona, back in February. Now, at long last, you can pre-order it with prices ranging from $349 to $799. Huawei confirmed in a press release this morning that its devices are going on pre-order today. Customers in the US can purchase them from Amazon, Google Store and Best Buy.

Huawei Watch will come in stainless steel, black and rose gold-plated case options. The smartwatch features a 42mm metal case with standard 18mm lugs and a round face. What’s more, the physical button (much like the upcoming Moto 360) is placed at the 2 o’clock position. It’s built from 316L stainless steel and the 1.4-inch, 400×400 AMOLED display is coated in sapphire crystal. expand full story

Speaking to Chinese media, He Gang, the head of Huawei’s mobile division, has said that the launch of the company’s first smartwatch, called Huawei Watch, has been delayed until at least September or October, pushing its launch to the latter half of the year. The Huawei Watch was unveiled back at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona with the company having said at the time that they were planning for a launch sometime “around the middle of the year.”

The delay can largely be attributed to “incompatibility issues with Android Wear,” according to the reports. In other words, Google Play services being unavailable in China due to strains between the Mountain View company and the People’s Republic of China has meant that Huawei has to build its own smartwatch services to match those built and offered by Google. expand full story
