The Huawei Watch is not a brand that has been well-known on the mainstream market for long. The Huawei brand rose to fame by the exquisite materials they used in their Classic Huawei Watch, the top-notch technology that was packed into this smart watch, as well as the luxurious and attractive design of their new wearable technology.

The timeless design combines the world of traditional wrist watches with the world of high-quality smart technology. The sheer versatility and power of the Huawei Watch has made this one of the most popular and well-respected high-end smart watch on the market today.

The Good

This smart watch has it all: high quality watch and band materials, excellent notification system for phone-less management of phone calls, texts, emails, application usage, messaging, and more.

The Huawei Watch is not a one trick pony. It is stylish and high class, and fits in a variety of environments. This sophisticated and classic watch is perfect for dress wear, business, casual, and for individuals looking to stand out and show of their sleek taste.



The dial screen can be changed to a nearly endless variety of clock faces. From digital to analog, the variety of clock faces can be changed quickly and easily to suit your mood or environment. With a plethora of colors and designs to choose from, your smart watch can change with your outfit and never look the same twice.

The best aspects of this particular smart watch is the sheer classy and sophisticated look it exudes. For the stylish looking for high quality and high class technology, you need not look any further than this beautiful and striking Huawei. The options of case material, band material, design, and size are outstanding—there are not many smart watch brands that offer such a range of options to choose from to personalize your smart watch.


Finally, this watch is run by the mighty Android Wear and is compatible with both Android and iPhone devices.

The Bad

The only slightly negative aspect to this smart watch is the battery life. While not horrible, the Huawei Watch has a 1.5 day battery life (which I am sure was calculated using generous conservation of energy). For a regular user who utilizes their smart watch often during the day and uses applications, the battery life may cut down to a day or less.

Again, this is not a bad battery life considering that the AMOLED screen stays on and the technology offers such a large variety of wireless smart options. This battery life is standard among the mainstream smart watches of comparable features and technology.

Looking at the specifications and technical information, it does not appear that the Huawei Watch is water resistant.


Without a doubt, the two best aspects of this smart watch that make it different than the others are the endless design options and the full compatibility of this smart watch to iPhone and Android devices.

From the variety of case materials, band materials, and face size to choose from, you can mix and match or buy additional bands to constantly personalize your watch every day. In addition, the application store offers a large variety of clock face designs that range from traditional, to modern, to glamorous, to low-key, and more.

This makes the Huawei Watch perfect for upscale dress events, sleek casual wear, business/work wear, and to wear for that feeling of luxury style and sophistication.



The Huawei’s functionality is excellent and is a testament to the brand’s success not only in the mainstream market, but the luxury smart watch market as well. The dual-compatibility with iPhone/ and Android-based devices ensures that most every smartphone owner can use this beautiful watch to connect.

The speed of Android Wear operating system is lightning fast and the tactile response of the AMOLED screen is excellent and without any lag. The use of this smart watch is entirely via the touch screen and the single button on the side of the unit case. There is no rotating bezel, but it is not missed in this design, nor is it needed.

The ease of use of the applications and functions is simple and the notifications are excellent and include sound and vibration notification settings.


Depending on your customization options and choice of materials and band(s), the Huawei Watch begins at $349.99 and can cost up to $450. However, if you search around a bit, you can definitely find it cheaper. Considering a typical smart watch runs from $300 to $400, the Huawei costs a very reasonable sum considering the high-grade materials it uses compared to similarly priced smart watches such as the Apple Watch. With the upgraded technology, sleek design, top-notch quality, and overall excellence, this is as expensive as the Apple Watch, yet this smart watch offers its user much more in nearly all categories—especially in design.

Overall Impression

Simply put, this smart watch exudes quality, fine design, and high class wearable technology. This timeless smart watch needs no alternative models or lines—the Huawei Watch speaks for itself, and is so versatile that it can be changed at will into a nearly endless combination of designs and styles at the click of a band or a touch of an application.

Rating Comments

The scratch-resistant Sapphire crystal is stunning and is incredible to find on a smart watch of this caliber—typically, only luxury watches or higher class traditional time pieces use Sapphire crystal to protect their dial.

The battery life is 1.5 days at a conservative or normal usage, so for heavier users, this may not be the battery life they were hoping for, but it is not by any means terrible.

This attractive and sophisticated tech wear by Huawei has made an impressive debut with the introduction of their very first smart watch.
