During the first few days I wore the Huawei Watch, a beautiful but big-screen Android smartwatch, it shocked me how many compliments I received for a heavy, bulky gadget that very clearly dominated my wrist.
In its second design round, Huawei is reaching out to people like me who seek a slimmer profile.
The two more "feminine" watch styles, the Elegance and Swarovski-encrusted Jewel, will sell within the first three months of the year for about $350 or $800, respectively (roughly £235 and £540 and AU$480 or AU$1,100).
They have slimmer bands and rose gold faces, but the 1.4-inch screen on its tall setting remains the same.
