Huawei has announced that they will be expanding their Watch range with two new models. These have been designed for the fairer sex or those who have skinny wrists – i.e. me! The new watches do add an element of glamour to the proceedings with some bedazzling ornamentation.
The new lines are called “Jewel” and “Elegant”. The “Jewel” features 68 Swarovski Zirconia stones around the case each, measuring 1.5mm in size. This one should come with a health warning as it is going to be seriously sparkly. These Zirconia stones are mounted to a stylish rose gold-plated body to give a premium finish.
The “Elegant” is bit more understated and it has a knurled pattern around the rose gold-plated case. With the new watches come new strap options which are all genuine leather and come in pearl white and sapphire blue colours. The watches themselves will come preloaded with 40 different watches faces to choose from and 10 of these are targeted specifically towards those after a “feminine” touch.
Other than these changes the watch does not seem to be any different from the one that Leigh reviewed at the end of last year.
Huawei and Swarovski’s Gemstone Business collaborate on new HUAWEI WATCH Jewel and Elegant
Following the successful launch of 2015’s best smartwatch, Huawei’s new editions aimed at women who sparkle and shine
[Las Vegas, 5 January, 2016] Today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG) unveiled Jewel and Elegant versions of 2015’s premium smartwatch. In collaboration with Swarovski’s Gemstone Business, the HUAWEI WATCH Jewel and Elegant mark a new female focus for the company.
Timeless beauty, for any occasion
Joining the Classic, Active and Elite smartwatches released last year to critical acclaim, the new Jewel and Elegant editions offer two stylish options aimed at women. Featuring 68 Swarovski Zirconia dotted around the rose gold-plated case, each measuring 1.5mm in size, the Jewel glistens and shines like nothing else available on the smartwatch market today.
A more understated option, the Elegant edition has a knurled pattern effect around its rose gold-plated case.
Complemented beautifully by the two genuine Italian leather watch straps, available in pearl white and sapphire blue, the HUAWEI WATCH Jewel and Elegant comes pre-loaded with over 40 watch faces as on the original model, including 10 exclusive feminine designs.
Huawei Watch, where fashion and technology embrace
With the same best-in-class specs of the original Huawei Watch, the Jewel and Elegant’s classic designs, inspired by Swiss watch manufacturers, sees scratch-proof sapphire crystal (the favoured choice amongst high-end Swiss brands) coating their fully circular 44mm faces. Cold-forged stainless steel, plated in rose gold, cements both models’ strength thanks to its durable nature.
Powered by Android Wear™ and both Android and iOS compatible, the Huawei Watch displays alerts for calls, texts, instant messages and emails. The Watch also features Bluetooth connectivity for wireless headphones usage, meaning you can listen to offline music downloads while you work out. With voice commands capable of controlling music as well as navigation, it’s the perfect running device. A heart rate sensor accurately measures heart rates, and the 6-Axis motion sensor can track activities including walking, running and mountain climbing.
A premium watch inspired by classic timepiece design, it truly embodies the space where fashion meets technology.
