When the Apple Watch hits the market later this year, it will face fierce competition. The family of Android-based smartwatches continues to grow, with the newest member coming from Huawei.
At this year’s Mobile World Congress technology event in Spain, the company just announced its first Android Wear smartwatch. It’s a very intriguing device that offers a round 1,4-inch AMOLED touchscreen, a built-in heart rate monitor, 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, a motion sensor for fitness tracking, a 1.2GHz processor, and Bluetooth connectivity that should allow you to pair the smartwatch to basically any Android device.
Huawei’s first attempt to conquer to emerging market of wearables looks insanely good. It has a round envelope and a mesh strap that give it an appearance of an expensive dress watch. Frankly, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second before wearing it with a suit.
Scheduled to go on sale in over 20 countries in both Americas in Europe, the smartwatch will be available in three luxurious colours: gold, silver, and black. Pricing and exact availability date are yet to be announced.
