Haier's steel-clad, Europe-bound smartwatch
Usually known for their home appliances, HAIER is doubling down on its smart watch efforts with this new HAIER Watch and at MWC.
Last year they released a wearable for kids, seniors, and pets, but their new watch for adults looks elegant and polished.
There are three design options, gold, silver, and black.
And you can swap out the bands for leather, steal, or silicone.
It's 1.4 inch touchscreen.
It's encased in steel.
And it has a 400 by 400 pixel resolution.
The device is also water resistant to a certain degree.
So you won't have to worry about it while you're washing your hands.
As for its capabilities, the watch doesn't run Android Wear but it does run an Android-based OS.
It also connects to your phone through Bluetooth and has apps like an MP3 player and a calendar.
The watch is also an activity tracker, so it can measure the number of calories burned and your heart rate.
Other specs include a microphone and a speaker so you can make calls with it, one gig of RAM, and eight gigs of internal storage So far from what we know, the device will launch in Europe for about $199, or $220 US converted, but we don't know if it will launch in the US or other markets.
