Huawei Watch (with iPhone support) could be launched on September 2, prices may go up to $799
The Huawei Watch - an Android Wear smartwatch that was announced in March - may finally be released next month. According to an Amazon listing (now removed), the Huawei Watch should be available to buy starting September 2.

It looks like the cheapest Huawei Watch model (with stainless steel body and black leather strap) will cost $349, while the most expensive one (gold-plated) should cost $799.

According to the now-removed Amazon listing, the Huawei Watch will be compatible not just with Android devices (running Android 4.3 or later), but also with iOS 8.2 (or newer) devices. Back in April, we heard that Google was already "close" to bringing Android Wear support for iOS devices, so this may finally happen next month.

Besides support for both Android and iOS devices, the Huawei Watch will feature a 1.4-inch AMOLED display (400 x 400 pixels) protected by sapphire glass, 512 MB of RAM, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, heart rate monitor, 4 GB of internal memory, and a 300 mAh battery. At launch, the wearable device should have over 40 watch faces pre-installed. Any takers?

You can already connect any Android Wear smart watch to an iOS device now. This isn't exclusive to the Huawei. Its a really nice looking watch.

Try to impress someone with an iPhone 5 from 2012, and you'll have an idea what will be rocking your wrist in 3 years. Buy a watch that is a watch for the same amount of cash and it will still impress 20 years from now

It is real gold though, whereas a stainless Apple watch with link band costs a similar amount.

why have to compare it with the apple watch the stainless steel bands for the apple watch can be purchased on amazon for like 30 bucks... buy the 449 model and get a 30 dollar band :).

People will still stare at a gold smartwatch regardless of the manufacturer.
