Huawei has finally released detailed specifications about its entrance into the Android Wear market, the Huawei Watch. These details show a fully featured device that could very well make a splash in the wearable industry.
The Huawei Watch will be released in three colors, including silver, black and gold. It will also include a 400 by 400 pixel display, equating to 286ppi, and will not feature the flat tire issue found on other round smartwatches.
The device will also come with a Sapphire crystal glass panel, to be used as protection for the screen. Thankfully, the device will include wireless charging capabilities and can be charged using the cradle that will come with the device.
Under the hood, the device is just as interesting as outside. It will come with a speedy Qualcomm APQ8026 1.2 GHz processor, along with 512 MP of RAM. While these specs don't seem like much compared with a smartphone or computer, considering the fact that a smartphone will do much of the work when the two are partnered, it should be plenty for most uses. The device will also come with 4 GB of storage, plenty for most smartphone apps.
In fact, it seems like Huawei anticipated that the device will be partnered with a smartphone more often than not. It doesn't seem as though the Huawei Watch will have Wi-Fi capabilities, however, it does have Bluetooth 4.0/4.1 connectivity.
As far as sensors go, the smartwatch includes a gyroscope, accelerometer and barometer. Last but not least, it has a vibration motor and PPG.
While the device is water-resistant, it is not waterproof, and users should keep note of that. The Huawei Watch comes with a small built-in microphone that can be used to make voice commands through Google Now. Last but not least is the fact that the watch comes with a 300 mAh battery, USB cable and power adaptor.
While we know that the Huawei Watch will be released internationally later this month, we do not yet know the pricing for the device.
