Deal: save up to $150 on the elegant Huawei Watch

Deal: save up to $150 on the elegant Huawei Watch
It's perhaps still too early to tell whether smartwatches are here to stay, or if they're merely another passing fad. Nevertheless, many of the biggest names in the mobile hardware game have joined the party, and Chinese brand Huawei is no exception. They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but of all the digital wrist candy available to purchase right now, the Huawei Watch is certainly among the better-looking examples. Away from its aesthetic qualities, it is actually a pretty useful smartwatch, and thanks to Amazon, you can save a tidy sum of money on certain models. 

The Huawei Watch with the black leather strap would ordinarily set you back around $350. But right now, it's on sale at $249.99, and there are similarly handsome savings to be had on other variants of the device. Both the Huawei Watch with the steel link band and the edition with the steel mesh band are down to $299.99, which is another $100 saving. The model with the black stainless steel link band is down to $349.99—also $100 off—while the rose gold model featuring a brown leather strap is now $549.99 ($150 off). 

In our Huawei Watch review, we were impressed by the slick performance and obvious beauty of the device. Like many other smartwatches, though, it's burdened by the fledgling nature of Android Wear, and the firmware still needs much work if this emerging product category is to stick around. 

Will you be snagging yourself a new Huawei Watch? Let us know in the comments.

I hate smart watches, they're always on but what they don't tell you is that they change into power saving mode and end up looking like a £5 digital watch from market stall if you not looking at them. Not really what I want, I'd rather just buy a watch.

Spoken like someone who hasn't used one or even the foggiest clue of how power management works on these.

I've used a few actually, tried lots of different clock faces, some with options to force different modes for better quality, but not full. Can't say I tried them all though and none of the default faces give these options. Besides even if you did force full detail the battery drain wouldn't make it worth it, they need larger battery's.

"they're always on" That alone disagrees with your statement on multiple levels. Within Android Wear you can EASILY turn off and on always on display.

No, that just means your reading comprehension is really poor. There are different levels of power saving that help them achieve their claimed battery life. Always on is a good thing, nowhere did I indicate I wanted to disable that. The issue is different power saving modes (or low bit ambient mode) which kicks in when your not using it to save battery life, they look butt ugly. You cannot disable them completely and they look horrible.

I am currently using the Urbane 2, Zen Watch 2, and Gear S2. All three offer always on display with the full watch face in ambient.You just have to search for those faces that allow that. I get two day's with this setup granted I turn them off at night with makes sense since I don't wear them in my sleep.

I tried a lot of faces and couldn't find any that allowed this, some offered a slightly reduced mode instead (which still looked bad), maybe that's what you're referring too.

Considering this Huawei watch has a stainless steel case and a sapphire crystal OLED display, that happens to be one of the highest resolution displays (400x400). This is really worth $249. Look at Apple for instance charges $599 for a 42mm stainless steel watch with sapphire crystal and a lower resolution display, and a rubberized band.

While you have already made up your mind about it. There are people that actually like it. I own a lot of smartwatches and will keep buying them. Smartwatch convenience is part of my life. I do have friend that think they don't need it which is fine by me too! Besides I don't go round showing it to them unless they ask about it specifically.

That flat tire look is pretty bad and means most of the clock faces don't quite look right. How could they with the bottom of the screen cut off? LOL
