The Huawei Watch, previously reported to go official next week during IFA, is now up for pre-order on Amazon. According to the listing, there are four models — Black/Black, Gold/Brown, Gold/Gold, and Stainless Steel/Black — priced rather high when compared to other Android Wear devices on the market.
To start, the “cheapest” model is the Stainless Steel/Black, featuring a steel-colored case and black leather band. This device is priced at $350. The most expensive, referred to as the Gold/Gold option, is listed at $799. Yup, that’s some serious dough.
Sadly, Amazon’s listing does not detail specifications for the smartwatch in depth. However, a couple small things are disclosed, such as a 1.4″ full-circle AMOLED display (400 x 400) with scratch resistant sapphire glass and stainless steel body, and even “iOS 8.2 or Android 4.3” compatibility. Does this mean Android Wear will soon support iOS, or did Huawei find a way? We shall see.
It’s entirely possible that someone jumped the gun, and this pre-order should not be live until the device is announced at IFA next week. So, if you were planning on purchasing a Huawei Watch, you may want to do so quickly.
Any thoughts on the pricing? Too expensive? Just right for a tasteful timepiece?
