We’ve seen quite a few Android Wear devices announced this year. Smartwatches are still not mainstream devices, but sure are more popular than they have been in the past. A number of high-profile companies have released Android Wear-powered smartwatches this year, and if you considering that the Apple Watch has also launched in 2015, we’ve had quite a solid year when it comes to smartwatch offerings. Huawei, Motorola, Sony, LG and Asus have all introduced their new Android Wear-powered offerings, and we do expect some smaller China-based companies to unveil their Android Wear smartwatches before the end of this year as well.
That being said, we’re here to talk more about the Huawei Watch, a rather pricey smartwatch which is considered to be amongst the best-designed smartwatches out there. The Huawei Watch was teased back in January during CES in Las Vegas, but this China-based company has officially released it last month during IFA in Berlin. The Huawei Watch is currently available for purchase in the US and comes with 1 year of warranty, well, Huawei offers you the opportunity to up that to 2 years. In case you’ve purchased this rather pricey directly from Huawei’s store, you can register the device at the company’s website and basically get another year of warranty.
There are some requirements for this though. You need to register the product within 45 days of purchase, and the watch much be purchased via gethuawei.com , Huawei’s official online store. If you’ve purchased your watch via gethuawei.com and want to register, you can do so via this link. Huawei did not mention whether they intend to expand this deal for consumers which have purchased the Huawei Watch via other official channels, but we do hope the company will do it soon. The Huawei Watch is a smartwatch made out of metal, it sports a 1.4-inch full circle AMOLED display (400 x 400 screen resolution), and packs in 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and a 300mAh battery. The watch is powered by the Snapdragon 400 quad-core SoC, and is compatible with Android 4.3+ and iOS 8.2+ devices. That’s pretty much it, we’ll let you know if Huawei releases any additional info.
