HUAWEI Watch has finally arrived, starts shipping out pre-orders as well
At the beginning of the month the HUAWEI Watch arrived to the Google Store, though shipping wasn’t projected to begin for at least 2 to 4 weeks. Now the watch is finally here for immediate purchase, both through Google and other channels as well.
For those who want as many configuration choices as possible, the best place to buy is directly from HUAWEI. There you’ll find the stainless steel model, the rose gold model, and at least a few different band combinations. The next best choice is Amazon, which offers the stainless steal with a black leather band, a black stainless with blank band, or stainless steel with a steel link band. Those buying from Google will only have one choice: stainless steel with a stainless mesh band.
As a refresher, the HUAWEI Watch comes with a 1.4-inch full circle AMOLED display with a 400 x 400 resolution, with its resulting pixel density of 286 ppi, one of the highest seen with a wearable right now. Under the hood is a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of on-board storage, and a 300 mAh battery. The HUAWEI Watch is also the first Android Wear device to offer support, albeit basic in nature, for iOS, helping to start bridging the gap between Android and iOS for the wearable game.
Pricing for the HUAWEI Watch begins at $349 and goes up as high as $400. While it is an attractive looking timepiece, the reality is that there are a number of comparable options out there that cost less. For those that don’t mind straying outside of the Android Wear camp, the Gear S2 is also a great option and works with just about any Android device.
