Huawei launches Watch Buds, Kids Watch 5X series and Watch GT 3 Pro Collector’s Edition smartwatches
Huawei introduced several new smartwatches at its event in China earlier today and we’ve got the details on all four new wearables.
Huawei Watch Buds is a 2-in-1 device that works as your regular smartwatch but with a screen that opens up to reveal a pair of TWS earbuds. The watch brings a 1.43-inch AMOLED screen with a 466x466px resolution. The casing is made from stainless steel while the leather watch strap comes in at 22mm and is available in black and brown colors.
Rounding out the smartwatch bit – it supports heart rate monitoring, SpO2 tracking, sleep and stress management as well as heart rate atrial fibrillation screening and ECG readings. You also get 80 workout modes. The earbuds offer AI noise cancelation for calls and music listening. Watch Buds weighs 66.5 grams without the strap while the earbud are 4 grams each. The buds are IP54 rated while the watch does not get official ingress protection due to its opening mechanism. BeiDou, GLONASS and GPS positioning are also onboard.
Watch Buds runs HarmonyOS 3 and pairs over Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity. Huawei claims the watch and its buds have a combined battery life of 3 days. The wireless earbuds get 4 hours of music playback or 2.5 hours of talk time with noise cancelation off. A full charge via the proprietary magnetic charger should take 100 minutes.
Huawei Watch Buds is priced at CNY 2,988 ($429) and is already on open sale in China. No word on global availability for now.
Huawei Kids Watch 5X and 5X Pro are the latest kids watches from Huawei and they offer 1.6-inch AMOLED screens with 360x320px resolutions and dual cameras in a rigged plastic shell. There’s a 5MP front camera and an 8MP rear module and both watches can be rotated 360 degrees and even removed from the watch band altogether. The Pro model has the added benefit of a secondary monochrome screen on its back which can be used to save power and is also less distracting than the main one.
