The Huawei Watch features a 1.4-inch full circle AMOLED display protected by scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, compatibility with iOS 8.2 and Android 4.3, a heart rate tracker, as well as sensors for tracking running, walking, and more. Huawei also promised up to two days of battery life for the Huawei Watch.

The Huawei Watch is probably the most traditionally-designed smartwatch that has come out so far with many of its competitors attempting to create more modern and unique designs for their smartwatches.
