Huawei is launching its first smartwatch, and it’s cleverly called the Huawei Watch.

Behind the simple name is a rather slick-looking watch with a 1.4 inch, 400 x 400 pixel AMOLED display, a stainless steel body, and Google’s Android Wear software.

Huawei will offer the watch in gold, silver, or black colors and the company plans to offer a range of straps in different materials. Users can also choose from 40 different watch faces.

The display packs 286 pixels per inch and features a 10,000:1 contrast ratio.

Under the hood, the watch has hardware that should seem pretty familiar to anyone who’s been paying attention to other Android Wear devices. It’s powered by a 1.2 GHz processor, has 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and Bluetooth 4.1.

Pair it with your Android 4.3 or later phone and you can receive notifications and interact with Android apps on your wrist.

The watch has a 6-axis motion sensor, a heart rater monitor, and a barometer for fitness tracking.

  1. This is actually the first smart watch that I like the look of.

    I’d like to design some watchfaces that are a throwback to the old WW2-era Rolex watches. The only problem is that none of the smartwatches out there suit that look. These Huawei ones will do fine.
