Huawei Watch Pre-orders Went Live on Amazon


We are all eagerly awaiting the arrival of new wearables at IFA next week. One of the most anticipated Android Wear devices is the Huawei Watch. Earlier today the Huawei Watch went live on Amazon for pre-orders, with the availability either running out or the page being pulled altogether. According to the listing, there are four color combos/material combos — Black/Black, Gold/Brown, Gold/Gold, and Stainless Steel/Black. The leaked pricing is pretty high compared to other Android Wear devices:

  • Stainless Steel/Black-$349
  • Black/Black-$449
  • Gold/Brown-$699
  • Gold/Gold-$799

The fact that the cheapest model of this watch is $349 is going to certainly put off some buyers. On the other hand, this is one beautiful smartwatch in my personal opinion.  The Amazon page did not have detailed specs but we do get mention of a 1.4″ full-circle AMOLED display (400 x 400) with scratch resistant sapphire glass and stainless steel body. Even more interesting is the mention of iOS compatibility, specifically for devices running iOS 8.2 or later. This could mean that Android Wear is going to come to iOS devices as long rumored. It does seem that the page has been pulled, I doubt that Amazon actually sold out. The page was probably made live a bit too early. The original ship date listed was September 2, 2015, so we will probably see a new page after the announcement at IFA next week. Is this device priced too high to attract new buyers to the smartwatch space? Do you prefer the Huawei Watch or 2nd gen Moto 360 look? Hit me with your thoughts in the comments! I added one to my cart on Amazon earlier before teaching this morning, but it was removed as you can see in the above picture.

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones).
