The connected watch Huawei Watch was one of the surprises of the MWC 2015 fair in Barcelona and it immediately positioned itself in a niche a little more luxurious than the previous products, squinting somewhat towards luxury watchmaking.
With its black, silver or gold metal cases, its button shifted to the two o'clock position and its fine bracelets, it offers a neat style highlighted by advertisements that have nothing to envy to the big brands of traditional watches.
The watch offers a 42 mm round case with a 1.4 inch display in 400 x 400 pixel resolution (the maximum currently offered in Android Wear) using an AMOLED panel.
On board, there is a configuration based on a SnapDragon 400 processor with 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage space, comparable to that of other watches Android Wear.
The watch has various sensors (gyroscope, heart rate monitor, barometer …) and communicates with a companion smartphone in Bluetooth 4.1. One characteristic was still missing from its presentation: his price.
It appeared at the German dealer Billiger.de and the price grid chosen should position the Huawei Watch on the top of the range of connected watches, with black and silver versions offered at ? 349 while the gold version climbs to ? 399.
Reported by Antonio Monaco, from HDBlog.it, this price range has not yet been confirmed by the Chinese group, but it would remain rather affordable in view of the prices revealed by Apple for its own Watch, the standard finishes of which start at ? 399 and can climb to more than ? 1,000. .
