The Huawei Watch is a premium smartwatch with a premium priceCNET's Dan Graziano gives you a first look at Huawei's new Android Wear watch.
[MUSIC] This is the Huawei Watch. And from a design standpoint, it's one of, if not the nicest Android Wear Watches that we have seen to date. It features a stainless steel body that feels premium in hand and looks even better when worn on the wrist. The 42 mm display is protected by sapphire crystal, which is a first for Android wear and it should make it a lot harder to scratch. The watch includes a heart rate monitor and also a six axis motion sensor for tracking steps, distance, and calories burned. But aside form the design, it really doesn't do anything special. Sure it includes Wi-Fi, but there's no GPS, cellular capabilities, or NFC for mobile payments. While they did include more than 40 customizable watch faces, but for the most part this is like very other Android Wear device. It can display personalized Google Now cards on your wrist and show there's like, text messages, e-mails, and calls from your smartphone. To charge the watch you connect it to a special magnetic dock. It's not as convenient as say, the moto 360 wireless charging but it gets the job done. The battery is set to last up to two days, which is about the same as other android wear watches and the Apple watch, but it's much shorter than other smart watches like the Pebble Time. The Wava Watch also isn't cheap. You can choose from a silver, black, or even a rose gold plated model with either a leather strap, a link bracelet, or a mesh band that reminded me a lot of the Apple watch. Prices start at $349 for the silver model with a leather strap and go all the way up to $800 for the rose gold model with a gold link band.
