Deal: save up to $200 on the beautiful Huawei Watch
The smartwatch arena is a bit of a vanity parade right now, in that the best-looking ones are generally the most appealing. From a functional standpoint, neither the hardware, firmware nor software has matured to the point where one might consider the real need to buy a computer for the wrist. The Huawei Watch, like so many of its peers, is a pricey hunk of metal, though its intertwining of traditional timepiece charm with modern-day geekdom is commendable. If this device has caught your eye but you couldn't justify the cost, you'll be pleased to learn that savings of up to $200 can be had for a limited time. 

There's a healthy stream of price slashes over at Amazon on a variety of Huawei Watch configurations. The rose gold-plated stainless steel model with the brown suture leather strap gets the biggest saving, at $200. Sure, it'll still set you back $499.99, but there are plenty other cut-price variants that will drag you into the smartwatch game without hitting your wallet too hard. 

For example, the stainless steel version with the black sutre leather strap is down $100 to $249.99. Sure, it's not as flashy and extravagant as the rose gold model. But it should be noted that the interior hardware is just the same, so you'll see identical performance irrespective of which watch and strap combo you opt for. 

As a refresher, the Huawei Watch packs a 1.4-inch circular AMOLED display, and is compatible with both Android (4.3 and up) and Apple's iOS (8.2 and up). If you'd like to take a more in-depth look at what the wearable has to offer, do take a peek at our review.

Will you be jumping on any of these deals, or are you waiting for the next wave of wrist candy? Be sure to share your thoughts with us below.

Still too overpriced in my book.

I agree. And the fact that these are only temporary price cuts is baffling to me considering how long this has already been out and the niche and novelty of the project segment. I'll wait for the price to drop even further and more time to pass.

It came after the Apple watch, it has a higher resolution display compared to it. It also has sapphire crystal protecting its watch face. It's screen stays on all the time if you want, and its battery will last longer as well. The Apple watch face is off most of the time, with no option to leave it on. Oh, how much does the stainless steel Apple watch cost? $700 for the 42mm Apple watch, that does a lot less. When version 2.0 of Android Wear lands. You will be able to install apps directly from the play store on this watch, even if it's attached to an iPhone. I guess it's baffling to me as well since we continue to see sales for the Apple watches which keeps temporarily dropping. Mxyzptlk how is your Apple watch. Are you still using it?

Everything you have said is accurate, yet the Apple watch crushes all in sales. At the end, like anything Android, is not going to last or be reliable.

The Camry crushes everything in sales too, nothing to brag about unless you are a gigantic troll or someone with no taste. Not going to last or be reliable...what does that even mean.

I bet you if Apple took dog poop and started to sell it. Then it would sell as well. It's been proven that Apples minions will buy into what ever Apple will push out. Just like today when Apple stated that the new watchOS update will be up to 7 times faster than before. So now instead up waiting up to 20-30 seconds for an app to start running and display the data requested. Now you only have to wait 3-4 seconds now. Yeah, okay believe what ever propaganda and hype Apple will tell you. As far as reliability and how long it's going to last. It's stainless steel with Sapphire, so it should last. The only real problem with all smart watches is the sealed in batteries will go bad after a few years. But all smart watches including Apples will have that problem. As far as Android Wear is concerned, it is updated directly from Google themselves. It's not the same as Android on phones. Where OEMs can change and modify Android. OEMs using Android Wear don't have a say on the Android Wear OS. So it will be very reliable.

Smart watches are still niche product but as far as price, feature and designs go, Android wear is still top choice. I wonder why Apple watch is not selling as well. Maybe its the price.

I don't notice too many people wearing smartwatches. I thought those would catch on.

This watch looks like a regular watch, especially since it can keep its watch face on all the time.

I have 3, 2 Huawei watches and one Gear S2.

I LOVE my Huawei watch. It and the LG Urbane 2 are the only 2 that can currently run Androidwear 2.0. I think Androidwear 1.4 is prettier to look at, but the functions of 2.0 are cool. I hadn't worn a watch in over 15 years and the Huawei got me interested. I love it. And it is beautiful too. When I took it to a watch repair shop to get it sized, the man working said it was the prettiest smart watch he had ever seen. I tend to agree. I think this is a fair price. I'm really hoping that Androidwear 2.0 gets some visual "prettification" if that is a word, but I'm enjoying my watch. I can keep my ringer off all of the time on my phone, and then just get a little vibration on my watch to alert me to a call.

Unless these watches get a lot thinner, they will never be big sellers. I don't want a hockey puck or pill box on my wrist.

The Huawei isn't really much thicker than my Fossil watch I used to wear. And I don't notice a weight difference at all.

If my urbane 2 didn't work so well connected and also as a standalone connected device I would think about this. I just don't have any reason to put my urbane 2 down yet...
