This is the Huawei Watch, One of the Best Looking Android Wear Devices to Date

huawei watch1

Huawei is about to make its presence felt at MWC with the announcement of the Huawei Watch. The watch itself was first spotted yesterday on a billboard, but we now have full promo videos for this Android Wear-powered beauty that will be made official in a few hours. Posted to the Huawei YouTube channel, two videos walk through the design process for the watch and also show how cheesy Euros are when they take vacations with their brosephs. 

Aside from the cheese, the videos do show one of the prettiest (this actually might be the prettiest) smartwatches we have seen to date. It features sapphire glass, a heart rate sensor, interchangeable leather or metal straps, crown, a bunch of classy watch faces, and a perfectly round watch face.

We don’t yet know all of the specs, price, or when it will be available, but I feel like I’m almost sold already. This watch looks great.

    Huawei has arrived…i think they are ready for the Nexus. I think after the Ascend Mate 7 they can handle the Nexus challenge.

  • Mustansar

    I don’t know why Apple preferred a square design instead of a round one!!

  • I couldn’t agree more

  • Lunatic Fringe

    Looks sexy. It would be a great competition between LG G Watch Urbane and Huawei Watch.

    I had high hopes for Pebble, but they disappointed me. I hope Pebble steel won’t disappoint me. Let’s see what other competitors will bring this year.

    I still prefer the look of my Moto 360 – flat tire and all.

  • Mordecaidrake

    Looks great, still love my Moto 360.

  • jenn

    i am certainly not mad at that. hmmm…

  • Maid For A Cause

    42mm is too small for current fashion. They’re trying to make a unisex watch but really it’s just the size that women are currently wearing.

    • Danilo

      Remember it’s for asian market first, and asians have smaller wrists… so i guess it make sense to them, maybe they sell later a XXL version, kinda ‘3ds’
      😛

  • Nikuliai

    Damn… Now I have to wait a leak from the next one on Moto… right now this is (imo) the winner, not by much, but it looks that way… and at least in my country the pricing is one of the strong points of Huawei

  • Xious

    I still really like my 360, but I’m glad to see more styles coming out. For everyone complaining about the “flat tire”, if this watch has an ambient light sensor, then I will give your argument validity. Anyways, I want to see more watches come out and Android Wear become more popular not for fandom but for pushing Wear to become more.

  • Jax Spade

    POGO Pins!!! Soooo close. I guess I will just have to accept that since no one can figure out perfect wireless watch charging yet.

    • cdm283813

      I’ve been charging my LG G watch nightly for over 3 months now. Not one issue with the pogo pins. I place the watch on the charging cradle at night and take off in the morning. Pretty simple if you ask me. And if I know that I’m going away for more than a day the cradle is super portable.

      • Jax Spade

        It not about the function of the pins it is about the charging process. A watch that uses pogo pins has two annoying deficiencies currently one being that you have to use a propriety charger since no standard one size fits all so break or lose that 20-30 dollar thing and your jacked. Second, there is a right and wrong way to place it in the cradle which makes it not the most user friendly. So, because of those problems I will deal with them because the watch looks good buy not accept them as being a great idea for charging. Like many others I think wireless charging is the best way to go for watch and hopefully as I mention someone will figure out how to make that work better.

  • MacNificent

    Breathtaking!

  • Ilya Kolodiychik

    Anyone want to buy my Moto360 when this comes out? ME LIKE.

  • Adrynalyne

    Hopefully the battery is better than the competitors.

    • Ilya Kolodiychik

      My battery lasts me 12hrs and I get home with 25-30% left. It comes off the dock at 7:30AM and goes back on most days of week around 8PM.

      • Adrynalyne

        So you don’t use it hardly at all (no clue which watch it is, but nonetheless). I want a smartwatch that doesn’t hide its face and lasts a day. Until that happens, I won’t be buying one.

        • Ilya Kolodiychik

          True…I do have the ambient light thing turned on so it does turn off a lot…I’m sure that helps.

        • crazed_z06

          My Gear 2 battery lasts 5 days with the motion sensor off. About half that when the motion sensor is on and display turns on automatically..

          • Adrynalyne

            Which is not at all what I said. “I want a smartwatch that doesn’t hide its face and lasts a day. ” I don’t want some POS that turns off because it won’t make it a day with the screen always on.

          • Charles Stafford

            My watch face hides, and i have never been embarrassed by that fact…Everyone that sees it is intrigued by it…Well, that and they think it is an apple watch since they only think apple makes electronics. . .

          • Adrynalyne

            Heh, hiding is not the embarrassment. Looking like a Gear 2 does

      • Adrian

        Other than the fact that I haven’t a real need for one yet, that kind of battery life for a watch replacement is unacceptable. The most basic function it needs to be capable of is actually being a watch. Days are 24 hours so a 12 hour life isn’t good. Maybe they’re trying to do too much but until battery tech improves drastically, it’s definitely a niche product.

        • Ilya Kolodiychik

          Yeah, but you aren’t awake for 24hrs a day. It’ll likely last you, if your usage is similar to mine…entire day. Which is all you need.

          • Adrian

            My day starts at 5am and wraps up around midnight. It’s not long enough for my needs. I don’t want to have to worry about my watch dying everyday. It’s just not a mature enough tech for me.

  • cellchild

    liked the homoerotic subtext of the ad, but the presentation was quite poor (fake respondents, creepy designer). They keep selling smart watches as a gadgets ( I rarely speak with my phone and def not going to speak with my watch). The selling point should be diversity of designs and uses, they don’t pay enough attention to it. Still, it’s a strong competitor
