IFA – Huawei Watch officially released

IFA   Huawei Watch officially releasedThis one has been waiting in the wings for a while, since MWC in fact it has popped up every now and again since but we were always missing one vital clue. The price well that has been announced.
It is going to be selling for €399.00 starting price and going up to €699.00 for the fancier version’s.

We have already had some hands on time with the Watch when it was launched at MWC back in March. However here are some more up close and personal pics of it live from IFA in Berlin.
