March 2015 - May 2017


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.

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…

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.
