This new Android Wear smartwatch can be already pre-ordered in the US and will reach other markets next month, starting around $450 USD.

Huawei officially introduced its Android Wear-powered smartwatch to European markets at IFA in Berlin. Simply called Watch, this wearable has a classic design that has been inspired by Swiss watches and can be pre-ordered in the US starting today, while Canada, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy will get it later this month.

Huawei Watch has a cold-forged stainless steel frame while its 1.4-inch circular AMOLED touchscreen is protected by scratch-proof sapphire crystal. The display has a resolution of 400X400 pixels and 286 ppi, as well as a high contrast ratio of 10,000:1 that makes it "the most vibrant Android Wear smart watch to date." Its hardware includes a heart rate monitor and 6-axis motion sensors.

Since Huawei's smartwatch runs the latest version of Google Android Wear, users of both Android- and iOS-powered handsets can connect to it and enjoy all its capabilities. Its 300 mAh battery offers up to 2 hours of autonomy.

The price of the Huawei Watch depends on the design features chosen and starts at $349.99 USD in the US (€399.00 EUR starting price in Europe).

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
