Huawei smartwatch available for pre-order on Google Store for US users
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.
