Almost without exception, Android Wear devices have been criticized for their bulky, often aggressive designs, that seem to cater exclusively to men. It looks like Huawei decided to turn this problem into an opportunity. The Chinese giant, who just flaunted 100 million in smartphone sales in 2015, announced today two new versions of the Watch designed with women in mind: Jewel and Elegant.
The differences between the standard Huawei Watch and the Jewel and Elegant are strictly cosmetic. That means these glamorous smartwatches are just as thick and large as the standard version, but on the flip side, you get the same attractive specifications: a 400 x 400 pixel AMOLED display covered by sapphire crystal, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 4GB of storage, and 512MB of RAM.
The Jewel features a gold patina and a snazzy blue leather strap, with 68 1.5mm Swarovski crystals encircling the display. Meanwhile, the Elegant swaps the crystals for a knurling pattern.

Both the Jewel and the Elegant feature 10 exclusive “feminine” watch faces, whatever that means, and of course, all of the features we’ve come to know in Android Wear.
The Huawei Watch Jewel and Elegant will be available from March in United States, United Kingdom, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and United Arab Emirates.
