Huawei Watch Review: Sharp Style at a Princely Price

Learn more about the Huawei Watch! Check out our full Huawei Watch review at Pocketnow: http://pocketnow.com/2015/09/22/huawei-watch-review

When your principal standouts in the United States are fringe or affordable smartphones, you’ve got to have some serious stones to price your first Android Wear smartwatch like this. At $349, only one other watch in the Google Store is as expensive … and that’s just the entry level pricing tier. Does the Huawei Watch bring enough quality to justify the coin? Find out in our Huawei Watch review video!

CORRECTION: In the video we erroneously state that no Android Wear device currently offers NFC, but the Sony SmartWatch 3 does indeed include the feature. Pocketnow regrets the oversight.

The Huawei watch on Amazon’s Prime Day for only 175, don’t mind if I do….

Burzin Billimoria says:

Till you get better battery, smart watches will never take over from normal watches. Its a pain charging the watch once a day and even more than once a day sometimes.

Kambing Setia says:

Howie Katts says:

Very professional review. I really enjoy mine.

Yashar Daghigh says:

eLJaybud says:

Or instead of wasting lots of money on a watch that will probably be superseded within a couple of years just give your money to a good cause.

Sam Fouani says:

Does this one stay on all the time if you want it to? My gear s2 only comes on when you look at it..

best to wait till price drops to $10

rogargaro15 says:

would be perfect if it had gps

Tyler Moser says:

I like the look of the watch. But the ppi is shit.

RojasTKD7 says:

Just a minor correction, the Sony SmartWatch 3 includes NFC. It’s my current working/gym/running/outdoor activity watch.

The Huawei Watch is quite nice, and I would love to have one for more dressed up occasion, but that still have to wait until the price is more affordable. Until then the Asus ZenWatch (original version) will do.
