We like the Huawei Watch, it is one of the best Android Wear smartwatches on the market, not to mention one of the very best looking wearables available. Consumers in the United Kingdom can now get a taste of the Huawei Watch as the device is rolling out in the nation right now.The Huawei Watch will cost £289 ($440 USD) and peaking at £599 ($930 USD) depending which variant of the wearable you opt to purchase.
Now, the debate about whether a smartwatch should look like a traditional timepiece rages one, but for my money I want a wearable that looks like a good old fashioned watch. The Huawei Watch fits that, as do a number of other wearables on the market now; it really seems as though the market is reaching puberty and maturing. Back to Huawei's effort. The watch oozes a premium look thanks to a sapphire screen, "cold-forged" scratch resistant stainless steel, and a number of luxury straps. Unlike the Apple Watch, Huawei's product looks good in any of its guises, be that gold, silver, or black. At 42mm, this is a small smartwatch, but it comes with the now familiar set of Android Wear specs. That means the Huawei Watch gets a 1.4-inch AMOLED 400 x 400 screen, a 6-axis motion sensor, and a Snapdragon 400 processor. It really seems as though the smartwatch fight will be won with aesthetics more than it will raw hardware.
