For this reason, it is expected that the Huawei Watch will not reach the market. until September or October at the earliest. Of course, the Chinese firm should not delay the launch of its device excessively, since other highly anticipated smartwatches such as the rumored Samsung Gear A circular rotating bezel are expected for the same dates, as well as the Moto 360 2 or the first. TAG Heuer smartwatch.

The Huawei Watch could cost 387 dollars in its black and silver version, and 451 dollars in its gold version
In this way, the black and silver versions of the watch could cost about $ 387, while the model in gold color -which is not made of gold- would cost US $ 451. Of course, if true, it would become the most expensive Android Wear smartwatch on the market waiting for the luxurious TAG Heuer model to snatch the position.
As we read in BGR, the Huawei Watch is committed to a classic and elegant design, apart from lines that can make us doubt that we are facing a real watch. If you want to know our impressions of the device, at the MWC in Barcelona we were able to have a first contact with it.
