Huawei today unveiled its new flagship smartwatch, the Watch Ultimate. The Mate X3 and the P60 series also came to the stage. The Huawei Watch Ultimate ranks above the GT 3 Pro with an even more robust design. It is water resistant to 100 meters, which also makes it suitable for professional diving.
The Huawei Watch Ultimate features a 1.5-inch circular LTPO AMOLED display that supports refresh rates between 1 and 60 Hz. A large 530 mAh battery fits into the case, which should last 14 days with normal use. More active users should still manage around 8 days. The Huawei smartwatch supports Qi wireless charging with the included charger, allowing the watch to go from 0 to 100% in 60 minutes. The usual sensors for heart rate, blood oxygen and ECG values are of course also on board.
The case features 16 water-resistant structures, allowing the Watch Ultimate to withstand extreme deep-sea pressure. Huawei has also tested the watch against the ISO 22810 water resistance standard and EN13319 device equipment standard. This guarantees 24-hour immersion at a depth of 110 meters / at 10 ATM.
The Huawei Watch Ultimate also features what is known as Expedition Mode, which delivers dual-frequency GNSS positioning capabilities with five systems for accurate position data. The case is made of zirconium, while one of the straps is made of a new type of hydrogenated nitrile rubber. The bezel is ceramic while the display is protected by sapphire crystal glas.
The Huawei Watch Ultimate will go on sale in the UK and Europe from April 3 in two versions – Expedition Black (with a rubber strap) and Voyage Blue (with a metal strap). Prices in China are 5,999 CNY ($880/€800/£710) and 6,999 CNY ($1,025/€940/£830). Global pricing will be announced at a later date.
