Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review.
Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the same time. It’s a huge frenzy, commenters go nuts, and it’s a giant explosion of frantic opinion-sharing activity.
For about … a day. And then it all goes away. Sure, there’s followup coverage as people find bugs and hidden features, but after that initial blast, not many people revisit the device to see how it feels a few months later, because everyone’s already focused on the next big deal coming down the pipe.
So let’s do something about that. Let’s see how we feel about devices when they’re not shiny and new anymore. This is After The Buzz.
Join us for our second look at one of the most expensive Android Wear offerings, and see if it’s still worth the extra money. For episode 54 of After The Buzz we feature the Huawei Watch.
According to our review, no other smartwatch exemplified Android Wear more than the Huawei Watch, and in that sense he was right. Even today this is one of the few alternatives that offers an elegant design and premium materials for less than $1000 in all its variants. The whole idea was indeed to de-emphasize the geeky and turn this into a timeless piece of hardware, and to that extent, some of its features met the goal, and others not so much.
