Huawei announced only last week that their premium Android Wear device, the Huawei Watch W1 would be hitting Australia this month and now retailer Harvey Norman has listed the watches for pre-order confirming pricing.
The watches aren’t going to be cheap, with the stainless steel cased model with a black leather band starting at $546, a shade under the $549 RRP announced by Huawei. There’s other options including a steel mesh or link band for the steel body, as well as a black casing with link band.
We haven’t seen the Gold case option made available here in Australia – you can expect to pay around US$699 + shipping if you can find one from Amazon who seems to have dropped that option.
The Huawei Watch has been on my list of coveted devices since I first laid eyes and hands on it back at Mobile World COngress where it was first announced.
The Huawei Watch is expected to arrive in Australian stores including Harvey Norman, JR Duty Free, Dick Smith Move, JB Hi-Fi, selected jewellers and Huawei Kiosks nationally from October 15th and if you’re in the market for a premium Android Wear watch, we recommend you check it out.
