In Short

Huawei announced its first smartwatch, simply called the Huawei Watch at MWC 2015 in Barcelona. Though it has made other smart bands and wearables before, this is the first true watch from Huawei.

It certainly looks like a "real" watch, which is nice, and comes in gold, silver or black colors with different kinds of bands — including leather, rubber and stainless steel — with a sapphire glass covering the display. But beyond the looks, there's a circular 1.4-inch display at 400x400 resolution, backed up by a Qualcomm 1.2GHz processor, 4GB of storage and 512MB of RAM. Those are pretty standard components for an Android Wear watch nowadays, and it should provide plenty of performance.

At CES 2016, Huawei introduced two new variants of the smartwatch, the Jewel and Elegant. These are both geared towards women, with a clear fashion-inspired design. Internally, the watches are identical to the existing model, but it is actually 2mm larger, at 44mm. The Jewel will come with a bezel full of jewels, while the Elegant offers a raised dot design. Huawei has yet to announce pricing and availability for these models yet.

The Huawei watch is available in the U.S. starting at $349 from, the Google Store, Amazon and Best Buy. Elsewhere, the Huawei Watch goes is on sale in Germany, Canada, France, Spain and Italy, ranging from €399 to €699.
