PROS

  • The Huawei Watch features a sophisticated design and comes in a variety of style options.
  • The 1.4-inch AMOLED display offers a resolution of 400 x 400 pixels, allowing it to display crisp, clear graphics.
  • The Huawei Watch can be customized easily by changing the strap.

CONS

  • It lacks an ambient light sensor, so the screen's brightness doesn't adjust automatically.
  • The Huawei Watch is pricey, especially if you choose a high-end design.
  • It can only be charged using the included dock.
Huawei is known for making budget-friendly smartphones, but the Huawei Watch may change how you think about the company. This Android Wear watch features an attractive, sophisticated design--and a sophisticated price, starting at $350 and going all the way up to $800 depending on the style you choose. All of the Huawei Watch models feature a round face and a 1.4-inch high-resolution AMOLED screen. The watch connects to an Android phone and displays alerts and notifications from the phone, including incoming calls and messages, and it displays information on the weather, your calendar appointments, and your activity level.

Huawei claims its watch will last you up to two days, which would be a solid achievement for a smartwatch at this stage. Sadly, it doesn’t.

Initially the leather strap felt a little cheap – like those on fake watches you pick up from a market stall – but after a few days of use it began to wear and soften. Now it feels great.

What does annoy me is the thickness, which is over a centimeter, 11.3mm to be precise. Combined with a brushed silver look, it looks nothing so much as a stack of silver dollars strapped to my wrist.

The idea behind the Huawei Watch is to produce something so yummy it’s the kind of wrist-wear you’ll want to strap on just because it looks and feels that damn good. And you know what? It’s pretty swish.

Despite the minor hardware and software innovations brought to the table, I can't help but feel a bit disappointed that the specs are generally the same, if not a little worse, than smartwatches we've seen already this year.

What determines value is set by the buyer themselves, so I can’t answer that for you, but in my opinion, the Huawei Watch, much like the Apple Watch, is priced just a little too high.

Some smartwatches manage to produce smooth scrolling and good responsiveness, but the Huawei Watch is not one of them. For a smartwatch that costs around $400 this is unfortunate.

Holy cats, is this one damn good-looking piece of high-tech jewelry. No longer is "good looking for a smartwatch" the best praise we can dish out. Hell, I might still wear the Huawei Watch if all it did was tell the time.
