Huawei Watch on sale in the UK

The much anticipated Huawei Watch is finally going on sale in the UK, priced from £289.

That's the price for the entry model classic black leather model, the stainless steel mesh is £329, and the Huawei Watch Active black leather flat tip and black plated stainless steel link models cost between £329 and £369. The rose gold model is a ridiculous £599.

Pricey - we know, the cost was the main sticking point in our recently published Huawei Watch review.

Android Wear could be iOS bound

The fully circular 1.4-inch AMOLED display has a pixel count of 286ppi, that's 400 x 400, and is coated in sapphire crystal. The 11.3mm thick body has a cold-forged stainless steel frame with the crown at 2 o'clock. It's one of more unisex designs we've tried. The Watch also comes pre-loaded with 40 watch faces to choose from.

The smartwatch features an accelerometer, barometer, and heart rate monitor which Huawei says protrudes from the body for better accuracy. The Watch is said to be able to distinguish between activities such as walking, running and climbing too - but we're not so sure about that.

Battery life is around 1.5 days with a 300mAh unit, and 75 minute charging time. The watch boasts IP67 waterproofing too which is a nice bonus for a stylish smartwatch.

You can grab a Huawei Watch from vMall, Selfridges and the Google Store.
