Let the arm party begin with Huawei smart watch

I have been collecting watches since I first bought my first Betty Lou Flik Flak Swatch with my first hard earned salary.  I have around 35 watches. I am not choosy with brands, if I love the style I go buy it, I have it in sport, vintage, leather, big, dive, quirky and tech.   My favorite go-to-style is the big watch.  I have been sporting the big face style for almost 5 years now,  I love that chunky feel in my wrist. It has become my fashion staple, it accessorizes everything I wear.  I love that Mens watch adds fierce to my overall style.

I never thought I would be owning a smart watch as early as December as I am contemplating on buying another brand next year but when my name was called in a random raffle at Huawei Smart watch launched last December 7 at Green Sun. I knew it!  I would be sporting the timeless looks and smart features in a timepiece this 2016.

What I love about the Huawei Watch is that it works on both iOS and Android. Powered by Google’s proprietary Android Wear, it receives SMS, email, calendar, app, and phone call notifications has never been easier or more convenient than this wearable.

The long wait is finally over, as the smart watch everyone has been raving about since its big reveal at the Mobile World Congress in March finally arrives in the Philippines.

The fully circular watch features a 1.4-inch touch-sensitive AMOLED display, scratch-proof sapphire crystal lens, cold-forged stainless steel frame, and comes with a built-in heart rate monitor and 6-Axis motion sensors.

Powered by Android Wear, the Huawei Watch represents the next evolutionary step for the brand in terms of wearable technology.

Designed by a team of experienced watch designers that have a rich history in creating fashionable and timeless watches, the attention-to-detail becomes apparent upon first glance with its full circle “swiss inspired” design.  The quality of materials used all around puts elevates the Huawei Watch in another category of class.

“This is the first smartwatch in the Huawei wearable family and is also the first watch on the market that truly bridges the gap between fashion and technology. As part of our expanding line of premium wearable products, the Huawei Watch was designed and created to enhance and be part of the consumer’s everyday lives. It is our response to consumers requests who are looking for a smartwatch that combines timeless design and truly usable features, says Charles Wu, country manager of Huawei’s consumer business group.

“The Huawei Watch continues our commitement ‘Make It Possible,’ as we deliver a truly premium smartwatch that is technologically innovative allowing you to coordinate with your smartphone whether it is Android or iOS,” says Wu.

Timeless Design

Made of more than 130 components, the Huawei Watch has all the traditional elements of a classic watch, including a crown, frame and hinge built from high-quality and scratch resistant cold-forged stainless steel making it 40 percent harder. The polished 42mm stainless steel body comes in at 11.3mm thick, which makes it slim and very comfortable to wear. The body of the watch is also both corrosion and scratch-resistant. Unlike most regular watches, the Huawei Watch places its crown at the intuitive 2 o’clock press button, offering the highest levels of control and comfort to the user.

The Huawei watch features a range of rose gold, stainless steel and black frames to choose from, as well as a variety of bespoke watch face designs, across a range of classic, luxury, business, feminine, modern and simple aesthetics. The choice of straps includes stainless steel mesh, stainless steel links, rose gold, and black-plated stainless steel links, and brown and black leather. Easy to change, they will fit any watch strap with 18mm width giving you countless customization options.

Smart Within, Dual Compatibility

The Huawei watch is compatible with smartphones running Android 4.3 or higher, and is powered by a Qualcomm 1.2GHz processor for optimal performance. It also includes 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM and Bluetooth 4.1 support.

When paired with your smartphones, the Huawei watch enables you to stay connected wherever you are, with instant notifications on incoming calls, texts, instant messages and emails. Bluetooth connectivity allows wireless headphone usage, and offline music download support. Music can be started via voice commands, with users able to search for destinations and navigate their way there using the same voice actions. Locating missing phones has never been easier than with the watch’s “find my phone” function.

More than just a fashion statement the Huawei watch is also perfect for the sports enthusiast, or just those interested in tracking fitness levels.  It features a heart rate monitor sensor, which can accurately measure heart rates. The sensor protrudes slightly for better skin contact and greater accuracy. With its 6-Axis motion sensor, gyroscope and accelerometer the Huawei watch can detect and track, in real-time, if a user is walking, running, biking, hiking or sleeping. Specifically, users can monitor everything from the number of calories burned, to heart rate, climbing height, steps taken, and distance travelled.

To encourage consumers to live happier and healthier lives, Huawei is developing a wearable’s health and lifestyle ecosystem that will help users set goals and track their progress. Huawei has partnered with several app developers including Jawbone, to strengthen the Huawei Health Ecosystem and create more health and fitness apps that will encourage users to live healthier lifestyles.

“As more consumers demand more than just connectivity, Huawei takes the lead in wearable technology. Huawei has invested a lot of research and development to make sure that we are able to combine the best in technology and innovation with premium materials and a classic look and feel.
As wearable devices become one of the most significant trends in the device industry, we are making use of Huawei’s expertise in technology and innovation to become the leader in the wearable space.”

The Huawei Watch Classic retails for PhP19,990.00 while Huawei Watch Active retails for PhP 23,990.00  Both models come with a 2-year warranty. The Huawei Watch will be available starting December 10 at Huawei Experience Store and brand shops, and online via Zalora.
