The Huawei Watch has now hit the UK market, available from Vmall, Selfridges and Google Store at prices ranging between £289 and £369. The revolutionary watch, running Android Wear, with the added ability to pair with IOS, is offered with a choice of 40 classic faces on its 400- by 400-pixel 286 ppi screen, which gives way to displays from its many apps, including fitness tracking, a phone-finding function, and other features. Buyers have a choice of stainless steel or black frames, and black leather, stainless steel mesh, stainless steel link or black-plated stainless steel link straps.
A launch event was held on November 4 at the Mondrian Hotel in London, with a discussion on the future of wearables in UK fashion led by vlogger Jim Chapman, LS:N Global co-founder Chris Sanderson and Huawei global brand director Amy Lou, and hosted by presenter and columnist Darren Kennedy; and three catwalk shows. The Hackney Colliery Band performed live at the function.
The watch measures 42 mm in diameter, with a circular AMOLED display coated in scratch-proof sapphire crystal.
