Hardware

The Huawei Watch's form factor is based on the circular design of traditional watches, supporting a 42 mm (1.4 inch) AMOLED screen. The screen's resolution is 400 x 400 pixels and 286 ppi. The case is 316L stainless steel, covered with sapphire crystal glass on front and available in six finishes: Black Leather, Steel Link Bracelet, Stainless Steel Mesh, Black-plated Link Bracelet, Alligator-pressed Brown Leather and Rose Gold-plated Link Bracelet.[5][1]

The watch uses 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. All versions of the Huawei Watch have 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. It preloads gyroscope, accelerometer, vibration motor, and heart rate sensor. It supports WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1 LE, and no support for GPS locating.[5] The watch uses a magnetic charging cradle, with a day and a half battery life.[6]

Software

The watch pre-installed Android Wear operating system and it works with iOS (8.2 and later) and Android (4.3 and later) devices. It currently supports Google Now voice commands. The watch can process calls and receive messages and emails.[7]

Reception

In TechAdvisor 's review, Chris Martin wrote "this is a great looking smartwatch, although it is quite large. Specs match other Android Wear smartwatches but we're worried about the small battery."[8] The President of Huawei U.S. Xu Zhiqiang said "It embodies Huawei's technology innovation heritage, pursuit of premium design and integration of useful functionality that we strive to develop in each product."[9] The Phandroid said "it is the classiest Android Wear smartwatch available right now".[10]
