Huawei introduced several new smartwatches at its event in China earlier today and we have details on all four of the new wearables.
Huawei Watch Buds It is a 2-in-1 device that works like your regular smartwatch but with a screen that opens to reveal a pair of TWS earbuds. The watch offers a 1.43-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels. The case is made of stainless steel while the leather watch strap measures 22mm and is available in black and brown colours.
Rounding out the smartwatch part — it supports heart rate monitoring, SpO2 tracking, sleep and stress management as well as atrial fibrillation heart rate and ECG readings. You also get 80 workout modes. The earphones provide AI noise cancellation for calls and listening to music. The Watch Buds weigh 66.5g without the strap while the earbuds weigh 4g each. The buds are IP54 rated while the watch does not get official ingress protection due to the opening mechanism. BeiDou positioning, GLONASS and GPS are also available on board.
Watch Buds run HarmonyOS 3 and pair over a Bluetooth 5.2 connection. Huawei claims that the watch and its buds have a combined battery life of up to 3 days. The wireless earbuds get 4 hours of music playback or 2.5 hours of talk time with the noise cancellation off. A full charge via the special magnetic charger should take 100 minutes.
The Huawei Watch Buds are priced at CNY 2,988 ($429) and are already on sale in China. No word on global availability at this time.
