Huawei Watch for Women (Elegant and Jewel) Hands-On (Video)
Update: We have learned that the “Jewel” model case size is 44mm, to fit the cubic zirconia crystals onto the case.
For people who deign to accessorize, you’re probably male and don’t care too much about details. Hey, some of us at Pocketnow are guilty, too.
But for jet-setting, tech-savvy women who want to join in on this smartwatch revolution, your attention may come to bangles, the Apple Watch (because Apple), or the Gear S2. If you’ve been looking for some Android Wear watch options specifically, well, they’ve been hard to come by. That is, until the Huawei Watch for Women showed up at CES 2016.
Huawei’s naming the $499 model “Elegant” and the $599 model “Jewel.” It’s a steep upsell from the already edgy price of the base model at $349. For some of you, the 42mm case and the thickness — as chunky as the original Huawei Watch — may still put you off. But if you like rose gold stainless steel, leather bands and a knurled bezel or (this is where the Jewel part comes in) some Swarovski cubic zirconia, you’ll urge yourself to take a peek at what’s going on here.
We’ll help you out, too. Click below for that hands-on video we’re talking about.
