Huawei unveiled several new smartwatches at an event in China. This also includes a new type of 2-in-1 device consisting of a smartwatch and headphones.
Huawei Watch Buds
The 2-in-1 combo is called Huawei Watch Buds and looks like a normal smartwatch at first glance. But you can open the display and you’ll see a pair of TWS earphones. The watch has a 1.43-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels. The case is made of stainless steel, while the leather strap measures 22mm and comes in black and brown colors.
The Huawei smartwatch supports heart rate monitoring, SpO2 tracking, sleep and stress management, as well as heart rate atrial fibrillation screening and ECG readings. You can also track 80 different sports and workouts. The earbuds offer AI noise cancellation for calls and listening to music. The Huawei Watch Buds weighs 66.5 grams without the strap, while the earbuds weigh 4 grams each. The buds are IP54 rated, while the watch doesn’t have an official protection rating due to its opening mechanism. BeiDou, GLONASS and GPS tracking are also on board, as is Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity.
HarmonyOS 3 is used as the operating system. According to Huawei, the watch and earbuds have a combined battery life of 3 days. The wireless earbuds offer 4 hours of music playback or 2.5 hours of talk time with noise canceling off. A full charge via the proprietary magnetic charger is said to take 100 minutes.
The Huawei Watch Buds cost 2,988 CNY ($429) and are already on sale in China. There is no information about global availability yet.
