Pre-order the stunning Huawei Watch from Amazon now
Huawei’s first Android Wear device is now available to pre-order from Amazon. The Huawei Watch is one of the prettiest smartwatches we’ve seen so far, with a premium, all-metal design and round face — but it comes at a price.
Like many of its rivals, the Huawei Watch is water-resistant, uses standard watch straps, and has a built-in heart rate monitor and fitness tracking sensors. But thanks to its premium materials and pretty design, it’s easily the most expensive Wear watch we’ve seen so far.
Prices start at $349.99 for the standard stainless steel model with a black leather band, or you can upgrade to the black stainless steel option with steel link band for $449.99. If you want gold-plated stainless steel, when you’re looking at $699.99 with a leather strap, and $799.99 with a gold strap.
No matter which model you choose, you get a 1.4-inch circular AMOLED display that covered in scratch-resistant sapphire glass, and 40 pre-installed watch faces designed specifically for the Huawei Watch — with many more third-party options in Google Play.
With a second-generation Moto 360 on the way from Motorola and Samsung Gear S2 right around the corner, buying the Huawei Watch now might seem like a bad idea. But damn, it’s one hell of a pretty smartwatch.
If you do decide to take the plunge, you can expect to receive your order on launch day, September 2.
