After it is first shown at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this past March, the Huawei Watch is finally arrived on the market. First Chinese company, Huawei smartwatch Watch seems to have all the credentials to apply for best Android Wear on the market. Will it succeed? Let’s go to discover together in our review.
Hardware, Materials and ergonomics:
Let’s start with the retail box, very elegant, reminiscent of a classic watch. Included are given a car charger with USB port and a circular magnetic mount that attaches to the bottom of the smartwatch through four contacts.
Very good materials. The entire device is made entirely of stainless steel. The diameter is 42 mm mind 11.33 mm thick. The weight of the crate is only 49 grams. To protect the display there is a scratch-resistant Sapphire Crystal. A glass insert on bottom where we find the caridiofrequenzimetro and the contacts for charging. On the right side there is only one function key. We weren’t particularly convinced the leather strap that provides a slight effect chosen “cardboard”.
Huawei has created different configurations of your Watch, both in terms of colors-black, silver and gold–that straps and bracelets. The model we tested has black case and black leather strap. The smartwatch is waterproof with IP67 certified. Possible, so a dive for about 30 minutes at a maximum depth of one meter.

Connectivity provided by Wi-Fi and Bluetooth BLE 4.1. Also a microphone, six-axis gyroscope, accelerometer, vibration and a barometer. A “teardown” showed even in presence of a speaker who currently is not used.
Very nice display, an AMOLED “full circle” by 1.4 inches with a resolution of 400 x 400 pixels, a density of 286 ppi and a contrast ratio of 10,000:1. Great visibility in sunlight and even the angle of vision is very large. Can choose whether to activate the display through movement of the wrist or keep it active.
The wrist, Huawei Watch is very comfortable and lightweight. Good vibration intensity. The strap can be easily replaced with more generic by 18 mm.
The battery is integrated, is from 300mAh and recharges in about a couple of hours. Good autonomy which amounted to a couple of days of use, turning it off at night.
The operating system is the classic Android Wear in 1.3 version and is compatible with device Android 4.3 and above and iPhone with iOS 8.2 and above. Android Wear 1.3 provides support to Wi-Fi networks, interactive dials and watchface together. Huawei has added to the monitoring of cardiac activity, fitness and one to control the movement and calories burned daily. Heart rate measurement is quite rapid.
Several also the watchface preinstalled apps from Huawei, well done and that can satisfy everyone regarding the design. On the Play Store, of course, we can find a lot of new wallpapers and applications.
Huawei smartwatch, as said on TucsonSmartwatches, then, thanks to its beautiful design, excellent quality and good performance is placed on top of the Android-based ranking of our hypothetical smartwatch Wear. Quite high prices which start at 399 euros for Classic Leather, with a leather strap, from 449 euros for Classic Mesh and Active, to 699 euros for the Elite version.
