Huawei has joined the league of smartwatch producers following Apple, LG and Motorola. The Huawei Watch, powered by Android Wear™ was recently unveiled at the Mobile World Congress.
The smart watch sports a fully round screen, features a 1.4-inch touch-sensitive AMOLED display with scratch-proof sapphire crystal lens and a cold-forged stainless steel frame that makes it 40% harder and more resilient compared to other smartwatches.
With a 400 x 400 pixels resolution in 286 ppi at a 10,000:1 high contrast ratio, Huawei claims it is “the most vibrant Android Wear smartwatch in the world.”
Huawei has added an aesthetic edge to the design by sporting a side button at 2:00 position, shunning the bland 3:00 position. The design is easy to use and comfortable for the wearer, and comes in three color options: gold, black and silver. 40 different watch faces are available to users to serve a wide variety of tastes, and the watch comes with a range of watch straps made from different materials and styles to give you just the look you need.
The watch comes with a built-in heart rate monitor and 6-Axis motion sensors for the fitness geek. It boasts a powerful Qualcomm 1.2GHz processor, 512 MB RAM and 4 GB storage, along with Bluetooth 4.1 to get you in touch with other Android devices.
The Huawei smartwatch will come with a magnetic charging station to facilitate the users.
Huawei has plans to release the smartwatch in more than 20 countries including United States, United Kingdom, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, although exact availability and pricing is yet to be announced.
