CountryThe Chinese company Huawei announced the launch of its smart watch equipped with wireless headphones, Huawei Watch Buds, for sale in global markets, after it announced it in China at the end of last year.
The watch is unique in the world of smart watches, as it can be opened from the top to access the wireless headphones stored inside, in a way that allows the user to store the headphones and charge them at the same time when not in use.
The watch carries a 1.43-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels. As for the body of the watch, it is made of stainless steel, and the watch bracelet, which is available in black and brown colors, is made of leather, with a width of 22 mm.
Watch Buds support heart rate monitoring, SpO2 blood oxygen, sleep, and pressure management, as well as atrial fibrillation heart rate checks, and ECG readings.
The watch provides 80 exercise modes and weighs about 66.5 grams, while each earphone weighs 4 grams. But because of the opening mechanism, the watch is not water resistant, while the headphones come with water and dust resistance according to the IP54 standard.
Programmatically, the Watch Buds run Harmony OS 3 and Bluetooth 5.2.
The company says that the watch with a pair of headphones has a battery life of up to 3 days, which is a good operating period compared to smart watches running the “Android Wear” system from Google or the Apple Watch smart watch, but it is considered a short period compared to other watches from Huawei that work with the HarmonyOS system that Its operating time is approximately 14 days.
Wireless earphones can work for 4 hours of continuous audio playback, or two and a half hours of phone calls with the noise canceling feature turned off. It may take about 100 minutes to fully charge the headset via the magnetic charger.
Huawei launched the watch for initial order in Europe at a price of approximately 450 pounds sterling, and it is supposed to reach other global markets soon.
