Huawei Smartwatch is finally official in India. After having unveiled it at the IFA Berlin last year, Huawei took quite a lot of time to bring their smartwatch to the country. Better late than never!
Incidentally the delay seems to have allow Huawei to price their smartwatch highly competitively at Rs 22,999. The Chinese brand has tied up exclusively with Flipkart to sell their watch in India with the first sale scheduled later today. Apparently the Huawei Smartwatch will face stiff competition from the likes of Moto 360 (2nd gen), Samsung Gear S2 and the Apple Watch.
Huawei however is aware of that and has packed the watch with most of the vital specifications. In fact, it wouldn't be far stretched to state that is the looking Android Wear smartwatch available in India.
The Huawei Smartwatch comes with a 1.4 inch AMOLED display upfront with a resolution of 400x400p. This translates into 286ppi. For protection Huawei is also including scratch proof Sapphire Crystal Lens. For those unaware Sapphire is one of the strongest protective glass available - much stronger that all the Gorilla Glasses out there.
Huawei Smartwatch comes with IP67 waterproof and dust proof certification. Hence you can well and truly play around with your smartwatch, be it in the rain or during a stroll in the Thar Desert (provided you are crazy enough to do so in this summer heat!). Oh, wait don't throw it off in the lake near your house as it will probably die.
To take on the heavy weight counterparts like the Apple Watch, Samsung Gear S2 or even the Moto 360 (2nd gen), Huawei has included a powerful dual core Snapdragon chip on the inside clocked at 1.4GHz.
The smartwatch from the Chinese smartphone brand comes with 512MB of RAM. This is similar to what is present inside the Moto 360 (2nd gen), Samsung Gear S2 etc. In terms of storage the Huawei Smartwatch comes with 4GB of eMMC storage, so you needn't worry about losing out on storage space for apps.
Apart from the 6-Axis Motion Sensor and Barometer, the Huawei Smartwatch comes with a Heart Rate Monitor. While this mightn't be the cheapest Fitness Wear to come with such a sensor, but its presence will definitely give an edge to the smartwatch over its competitors.
Huawei has included a 300mAH battery inside their smartwatch. Apparently this isn't the largest battery that can be found in smartwatch, especially because the Motorola Moto 360 (2nd gen) comes with a 400mAH cell. However, the battery has just enough juice in it to power the smartwatch from Huawei.
Just like any other smartwatch available in the market, the Huawei smartwatch comes in a number of colour variants including gold, silver and black. This is accompanied by stainless steel and leather bands, so that you can customize the watch as per your taste.
