Huawei’s first female-focused Android Wear watches, the $499 Elegant and $599 Jewel, became available today to expand the company’s wearables line.
The company already offers an existing Android Wear smart watch, launched late last year, and a TalkBand series of fitness bands.
The new classic-look watches are available through Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, select Best Buy locations, BHPhotoVideo.com, the Google Play store and Newegg.com.
Both models feature a curved body and a soft, thin Italian leather band to make them fit more comfortably on a woman’s wrist, Huawei said. Both come with rose-gold-plated stainless-steel housings and a pearl-white or sapphire-blue band.
Jewel’s face is ringed by 68 Swarovski zirconia crystals, and the Elegant is ringed by a clous de Paris pattern of tiny pyramids. Both are preloaded with more than 40 watch faces, including 10 exclusive to Elegant and Jewel. Many of the watch faces appear to be jewel-encrusted. Additional faces can be downloaded from Google Play.
They share the same specs as the company’s original Huawei Watch, introduced late last year. All feature built-in speaker and microphone to enable hands-free calling via a Bluetooth-connected Android or iOS smartphone, a spokesperson said.
All three watches display app, email and text-message notifications on a 400 by 400 AMOLED screen. They also play locally stored music through Bluetooth headphones.
All three use voice commands to control music playback and navigation, and all feature six-axis motion sensor, heart-rate sensor, barometer, vibrating alert, and Wi-Fi to get notifications when a phone is outside Bluetooth range.
The original Huawei Watch is available in multiple versions from $349 to $799 for a rose-gold-plated model with link bracelet. They’re available at GetHuawei.com, Google Store, Amazon.com and BestBuy.com.
Huawei also sells unlocked phones in the U.S.
