At the Mobile World Congress, yesterday, Huawei launched its first smartwatch, the Huawei Watch. The device comes with 1.4-inch AMOLED 400×400 pixels display and runs Google Android Wear operating system.
The Huawei Watch is powered by 1.2GHz Qualcomm APQ8026 processor paired with 512MB of RAM and 4GB storage. It will be available in three colors, Gold, Silver and Black. The device also features heart rate monitor and a motion sensor, targeted to please fitness enthusiasts. It is backed by a 300 mAh battery. There are two watchband choices i.e. Stainless Steel and Gold. According to the reports, Huawei is expected to sell the Watch in 20 countries. Although, pricing and availability details have not been revealed yet.
The company also launched an upgraded version to its last year’s Talkband B1 fitness wearable. The upgraded variant is known as Talkband B2 and it is dust and water resistant. The device supports Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, which enables pairing with devices running iOS 7 or higher and Android 4.0 or higher. It also features a 6-axis motion sensor, which tracks activity and sleep.
The Talkband B2 weighs around 30 grams and has an inbuilt microphone that enables users to make calls or play music. It provides up to five days of battery life and up to 12 days in standby mode as touted by Huawei. We can expect it to launch around April for a price of EUR 169 (Rs. 11,700 approximately).
Moreover, Huawei also announced activity-tracking earphones, named Talkband N1. The device is targeted towards fitness lovers who cling to music while working out. It comes with 4GB of storage, which enables users to play music within the earphones, without the pre-requisite of a smartphone or music player.
