Huawei Watch visits FCC, release coming soon?


The Huawei Watch was unveiled back in March at MWC. Powered by Android Wear, the smartwatch features a rounded AMOLED display with a 400 x 400 resolution. That works out to a 286ppi pixel density. At 42mm in diameter, the manufacturer says that the device appeals to both men and women. Clad in stainless steel, the Huawei Watch is available in Gold, Silver, and Black. A Snapdragon 400 chipset is along for the ride and 512MB of RAM is inside.

Last month, there was talk that issues experienced with Android Wear were forcing a delay in the release of the Huawei Watch, with recent talk calling for a September or October release of the timepiece. A heart rate monitor is one of the fitness sensors on the watch. Other features include a step counter and a sensor that counts the number of calories you've burned while working out or running. Pricing is rumored to start at the equivalent of $386 USD to as high as $441 USD for the Gold colored model.

With the Huawei Watch finally receiving certification from the FCC, the device might be ready for release prior to the previously rumored September/October period. The trip to the FCC reveals that a 300mAh battery powers the watch and support for 802.11n Wi-Fi is included. It's the Wi-Fi connectivity that forces the FCC to take a look at the Huawei Watch, especially since it will be sold in the U.S.
