At $349 to $799 USD, the Huawei Watch comes in six models including stainless steel, black and rose gold.
Both black and stainless steel are available to preorder from GetHuawei.com, Google Store, Amazon.com and BestBuy.com. While the device is advertised as an Android Wear device, Huawei curiously lists iOS 8.2 as a supported OS.

With its various materials, Huawei is marketing the smartwatch as a premium device. In addition to six watch body and hand combinations that the company said will be available, there are also standard 18mm bands that can be swapped out to match a user’s preferences.
According to Huawei, the 300 mAh battery should keep the watch running for two days of regular use, despite an always-on watch face functionality, while fast charging comes in at 45 minutes for 80 per cent charge, and 75 minutes for full.
Meanwhile, both Wifi and Bluetooth will provide notifications, with the latter offering music without the need for a smartphone by downloading for offline playback.
