Huawei Watch

The Huawei Watch is an Android Wear device with a classic circular timepiece design inspired by Swiss watches. It features a stainless steel unibody with a sapphire crystal display. The diameter is 42mm, and there are traditional watch elements like a crown, frame, and lugs. It has a 1.4-inch AMOLED display with a 400 x 400 pixel resolution which is a sharp 286ppi (pixels per inch).

It runs Android Wear so it supports notifications, there’s extended app support, and there’s Google Now for voice commands. There’s a six-axis motion sensor inside and a barometric sensor. It can determine activities, such as walking, cycling, or climbing. It also calculates steps, caloreis burned, and tracks your sleep. There’s also a heart rate sensor. It’s compatible with a number of third-party health apps.

But wait, there’s more. It also comes with interchangeable straps, including stainless steel and genuine leather, and it supports a standard 18mm lug width. There are more than 40 different customizable watch faces to choose fro and you can get it in gold, silver or black. The Huawei Watch will be available this summer, but there’s no word on pricing yet.

Huawei TalkBand B2

Huawei’s new TalkBand has a premium aluminum design with a matching metal dock and it combines Bluetooth headset functionality with a smart band for tracking your activity. You can unclip the device from your wrist and pop it in your ear to make or receive calls. There’s a 0.73-inch PMOLED touch screen and it has a gyroscope and a six-axis motion sensor inside. Huawei’s algorithm can apparently tell the difference between walking and brushing your teeth, for greater accuracy. It also connects to your smartphone to relay notifications and the dual mic offers background noise suppression for making calls.
