Huawei Watch visits FCC, release coming soon?

The Huawei Watch visits the FCC

The Huawei Watch visits the FCC


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.

Between this, the Moto 360 successor, and the Tag Heuer Smart watch, one shall find its home upon my wrist this winter. Coupled with the iPad Pro, iPhone 6s (business) and Galaxy Note 5 or S6 Edge Plus (personal), this is is going to be a fun holiday season for me :-)

Have Fun... My iPhone 6, Note 4 and Gear S will have to do, another year... I'm still not convinced that any other smartwatch looks better than the Gear S right now. It's a pity, Samsung hasn't authorized more wristbands for the Gear S though! Peace bro. O.o

The gear S is great, there's no doubt about that. The main reason I'm getting something slimmer and more... aesthetically consistent with everything else I have, is just because appearance is a huge portion of my job. I'm not at all saying the gear s looks bad, because it doesn't. But it is a little too noticeable for me. And you're right, more options for the gear s would be awesome, I think my friend only has one other band and that's about it. But thanks for the well wishes! Hope your setup keeps working well for you.

After yearS of making those knockoff (Swiss)watches, they have the expertise to make the appealing smartwatches. I'll buy one if the price is right.

snapdragon 400 is not energy efficient. they should try the intel x3 or some other processor with die size less than 22nm
