We know that next week at IFA we will get one new smartwatch in the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 but if this Amazon is legit (why wouldn’t be) Huawei is about to drop brashest Android Wear concept we’ve seen yet.
There are some notable things on this Amazan linked to by The varge. First of all is gold. Gold! It seems Huawei’s taking a link from the luxury playbook Apple used with its Watch.The gold Huawei Watch — I guess that’s the same? — costs $US800, because who doesn’t wanna drop big bucks on an accessory gadget that will likely be obsolete within a year or two.
Though it’s less flashy, the Huawei Watch very good in that the specs indicate it works with iOS 8.2, which would mean that Android Wear will be compatible with the iPhone in the near future.
What else? The new Huawei will come in a number of different feature, so if you only want to spend, say, $US450, you can get a handsome black model. Additionally, we learn the watch will have a 1.4-inch AMOLED display and a heart rate monitor.
Is this for real? We’ll learn next week — the shipping date on the Amazon page is Sept 2.
