Huawei is now finally in the process of bringing its first smartwatch to Europe. The Chinese company has started taking pre-orders for the Huawei Watch through its official European online store.
Oddly enough, although the store itself is available for the UK, the Huawei Watch isn’t yet on offer in that market. But you can pre-order it if you live in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Italy, or Switzerland.
The starting price for Eurozone countries is €399, while if you’re in Switzerland you’ll need to pay CHF 399. This nets you a silver Huawei Watch with a genuine leather strap.
In some countries (but not all for whatever reason) there are some additional choices, all priced at €449 or CHF 449. You can pick a black model with leather strap, or get one of two stainless steel band options, with link or mesh design. Regardless of which model you pick, you’ll have to wait between two and three weeks for your order to actually ship.
The Huawei Watch runs Android Wear, is compatible with both Android and iOS devices, and comes with a 1.4-inch 400×400 AMOLED touchscreen, sapphire crystal protection, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, Wi-Fi, a six-axis motion sensor, a heart rate monitor, a barometer, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and a 300 mAh battery
