Huawei’s first smartwatch will be available starting September 17th, but pre-orders start today.
The Huawei Watch runs Google’s Android Wear software and features a round watch face and comes with a choice of several different premium materials: for $349 you can get an entry-level Huawei Watch with a stainless steel body and black leather band.
Want something a little fancier? You can opt for a stainless steel bracelet, a black-colored version of the watch, or a gold-plated stainless steel design.
A top-of-the-line Huawei Watch with a rose gold-plated stainless steel body and bracelet will set you back $799.
That makes the Huawei Watch one of the most expensive devices to ship with Google’s Android Wear software so far. But it’s cheaper than an Apple Watch.
Huawei’s Smartwatch is also one of the first Android Wear devices to officially support iOS as well as Android (although iPhone users don’t get all of the functionality available for Android smartphone users… such as third-party apps).
The Huawei Watch has a 1.4 inch, 400 x 400 pixel AMOLED display with 286 pixels per inch, a sapphire crystal display, a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and Bluetooth 4.1 and WiFi.
It includes motion sensors, a heart rate sensor, and a microphone, allowing you to use the watch as a fitness tracker or to speak questions or requests to Google Now.
Huawei says the included 300 mAh battery should offer up to 2 days of run time, and you can fully charge the battery in about 75 minutes, or get an 80 percent charger in 45 minutes.
