The Huawei Watch is available for pre-order and it is too expensive

As someone who uses Android Wear on a daily basis I understand it’s a cool gadget but limited features means its only worth investing very limited amounts of money on making the Huawei Watch a no go for many of us.

Android Wear is very cool and if you choose a decent watch then you can have a few days of use from a single charge plus some nice Google Now features, notifications and fitness monitoring options.

It’s convenient and I like it, but I wouldn’t invest more than a couple of hundred dollars on a current ben Android Wear device. It is simply not worth it.

Huawei hope that wearable buyers are totally unlike me though and have started selling their Huawei Watch on Amazon through pre-sales with prices ranging from $349 to $799!

I tried the Huawei Watch at MWC, its a great looking wearable and very well made but it isn’t any better than the Asus Zenwatch (the wearable I use) or the Moto 360, both of which are on sale now at considerably less than the new Huawei.

If you are feeling flush though then by all means take a look at the various Huawei watch options that include leather straps, stainless steel body and even gold plating.

    Most people that i know have 2 or more watches. One that you wear if you are going out on a special occassion and one that is more every day. If Android wear is going to work it will need to have more designs and more price points and there is nothing wrong with that. Why should Android wear be priced less than the Apple watch its not if the Apple watch is great or even better just because you can make a call on it the reviews on that have been very mixed. The beauty of Android is that if you dont want to buy the Huawei watch you can always buy a cheaper version and dont forget Andi that a watch is also a fashion item and a peice of jewellery. I have watches that all they do is tell the time and they cost more than the entry level of this Huawei watch. The Asus zenwatch just looks cheap and nasty and has no style

      I have watches that cost more than this too. The difference is those ‘real’ watches are something I can keep forever and aren’t going to become obsolete and worthless in a few years. If I’m lucky some of the better ones might actually increase in value.

    Android Wear (the software side) is still banned in China, right? So they can’t even sell it in their home country. The Chinese have to wait for Baidu to come out with their own half-assed rendition of it. I can visualize it already; “Ok Baidu…” …

      Google’s servers are blocked so yep it is pretty useless in China

        Yes but the Android Wear software itself is not available for install if accessing the Google Play Store from within’ China. (but once in HK it magically becomes available)
