Eerder deze week kwamen er al details naar buiten dat Huawei een eigen smartwatch zou lanceren. De Huawei Watch is een ronde smartwatch dat draait op Android Wear. Deze nieuwe smartwatch heeft een diameter van 42 millimeter en is daarmee een van de compactere smartwatches tot nu toe uitgebracht. Het AMOLED 1,4 inch display heeft een resolutie van 400 bij 400 pixels. Handig om te weten is dat de smartwatch krasbestendig is door het saffier glas wat over het AMOLED scherm ligt.huawei-smartwatch

De Huawei Watch wordt aangestuurd door een Qualcomm 1.2 GHz processor, 512MB werkgeheugen en Bluetooth 4.1. Ook beschikt de smartwatch over 4GB aan opslagruimte, waarop je tal van Android Wear applicaties kwijt kunt. Verder is de Huawei Watch uitgerust met een hartslag monitor en een bewegingssensor.huawei-watch

De vermoedelijke prijs en release datum is nog onbekend, of de Huawei Watch überhaupt zijn weg naar Nederland weet te vinden is nog zeer de vraag. In onderstaand persbericht vinden we Nederland niet terug.
