It’s been a long wait, but the Huawei Watch is finally available to buy in the UK.
The Huawei Watch was announced way back in March, but it took some time before we heard anything concerning its release. That came in August, when Huawei’s US team claimed that the stylish Android Wear smartwatch was “right around the corner.”
We in the UK have had to wait another few months, but the Huawei Watch is now available to purchase.
You’ll find the Huawei Watch topping the Android Wear section on the Google Store website, though when we checked it was still listed as ‘coming soon.’
However, you can place an order for the Huawei Watch now from vMall and Selfridges. What’s more, Huawei claims that you’ll be able to buy its new watch from more outlets from the end of November.
It’s not the cheapest Android Wear watch on the market, however. Prices start from £289 for the basic leather strap model, and go right up to £599 for the rose gold model. There are a couple of options in between, too.

Still, for that money you’re getting what we consider to be the best Android Wear smartwatch on the market. It’s fast, the circular 1.4-inch screen is sharp, and it’s premium design is very attractive indeed. It looks quite a lot like a normal watch, which is one of the best things you can say about any smartwatch.
The battery life could probably be better, but we feel that way about the vast majority of smartwatches released up to this point.
If you’re in the market for a new smartwatch, then, there’s every reason to be excited that the Huawei Watch is on the market.
