Previously, we have written that the Huawei Watch could possibly go for as high as RM3,655, which, needless to say, is an extremely high price to pay. Fortunately, prices revealed by a German online retailer have given us a more modest price range, which starts from 349 Euro (approximately RM1,365).
The RM1,365 retail price applies to the black and silver models of the Huawei Watch. The gold variant, on the other hand, will go for 399 Euro (about RM1,560). While these prices make the Huawei Watch one of the most expensive Android Wear devices, it’s worth noting that the display is protected by sapphire crystal, which could understandably drive the price up. (Hey, at least it’s not priced as high as these smartwatches.)
In terms of hardware, the Huawei Watch is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor that is clocked at 1.2GHz with 512MB of RAM. It also has a 1.4-inch 400 x 400 AMOLED circular display that boasts a pixel density of 286ppi, which makes it a pretty sharp display. Other specifications include 4GB of internal storage, Bluetooth 4.0, a stainless steel case, and a 300mAh battery.
Although the exact availability date of the Huawei Watch has not been announced yet, the company has mentioned that it will be made available in more than 20 countries. Even though Malaysia isn’t included in the list of 20 countries, Singapore is, which could indicate that we’ll get it around the same time as well.
Hopefully, the retail prices here are accurate estimates of the Huawei Watch’s asking prices when it arrives in Malaysia.
