Huawei is all set to bring its new ‘Huawei Watch’ for Indian consumers. The watch, with its classic design, inspired by Swiss timepieces, will go on sale exclusively on Flipkart.com starting today at 2 pm for INR 22, 999.
The Huawei watch, powered by Android Wear™, enables you to stay connected wherever you are, with instant alerts for calls, texts, instant messages and emails. With Bluetooth connectivity for wireless headphone usage, coupled with offline music download support, staying active is made even easier. Music can be started via voice commands, with users able to search for destinations and navigate their way there using the same voice actions. Locating missing phones has never been easier than with the watch’s “find my phone” function.
And now, with the latest version of Google’s Android Wear, both Android and iOS users will be able to connect to the Huawei Watch.
P. Sanjeev, Vice President -Sales for Huawei & Honor Consumer Business, Huawei India, said, “Wearable market in India is growing leaps and bounds. And consumers are now looking for wearable a gadget that not only tracks health and fitness, but also looks classic & premium. Huawei watch is the first smartwatch in the Huawei wearable family and also the first watch in the market to truly bridge the gap between fashion and technology. The smartwatch has received a great response globally from consumers and celebrities and we hope to keep up the momentum in the Indian market.”
Earlier last year, the company presented the Huawei smartwatch to the ace global designer, Professor Jimmy Choo. Expressing his excitement, he said, “I was delighted to be welcomed by Huawei and presented with my first Huawei Watch. The quality of the watch is amazing and I’m happy to have received an aesthetically-designed smartwatch”
Globally, Huawei has also tied up with celebrated personalities like Mario Testino and fashion icons like Karlie Kloss & Sean O’Pry. It has also collaborated with Swarovski to create exclusive collection of Huawei watch for women.
Huawei invests heavily in R&D. The Bangalore city houses Huawei’s largest R&D centre outside China and Global network operations Centre. The company owns more than 15, 000 device patents out of which over 60% are for smartphones.
Huawei has created waves in the Indian market through its dual-brand strategy where brand Honor caters to the mass market; Huawei has created a niche for itself by introducing some premium range and high-tech products like the Huawei Nexus 6P recently.
Crafted using sophisticated materials, the watch features a fully circular 1.4-inch touch-sensitive AMOLED display, coated in scratch-proof sapphire crystal (the favoured choice amongst Swiss watch manufacturers), a cold-forged stainless steel frame, and comes with a built-in heart rate monitor and 6-Axis motion sensors. It has a 400 x 400 pixels resolution in 286 ppi at a 10,000:1 high contrast ratio, making it the most vibrant Android Wear smart watch to date.
Keeping track of health
Capable of downloading music for offline playback, and with Bluetooth connectivity for wireless headphones, it’s the perfect running companion. A heart rate sensor accurately measures heart rates, and the 6-Axis motion sensor can track activities including walking, running, cycling and mountain climbing.
A new era of sporting technology
The Huawei watch includes a heart rate monitor sensor (PPG sensor), which can accurately measure heart rates. The sensor protrudes slightly for better skin contact and greater accuracy.
The 6-Axis motion sensor, with a gyroscope and accelerometer, helps to track your activities anywhere, any time, and can distinguish between different physical activities, including walking, running and climbing.
