Huawei began accepting pre-orders for its smartwatch in multiple regions on September 2 and is only now becoming available through the Google Store.

Huawei showcased its smartwatch at IFA last week for a launch later this month in Canada, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy for a starting price of 400 to 700 Euros depending on the country. More regions will see a launch in October including Japan, United Arab Emirates, and the UK.

US owners, however, can now pre-order the smartwatch through the Google Store for $400 USD. The only color option for the bracelet is Silver for now, though we fully expect more colors to be available soon. Attempting to access the same product page via the German Google Store will still give users a "Product not yet available" message with no prices or purchasing options.

The Huawei smartwatch will be 42 mm wide and was revealed in Gold, Silver, and Black color options at MWC 2015. It will incorporate a 1.4-inch AMOLED sapphire glass display, 400 x 400 pixel resolution at 286 PPI, 316L stainless steel chassis, and an internal 300 mAh battery. A PPG pulse monitor and barometer are integrated as well. The Chinese manufacturer reported a delay for its watch in June citing Android Wear issues in China.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
