Is Huawei launching 2 in 1 Watch and Buds?

Written by Akash Rai


Huawei has recently shifted its focus to the strange and beautiful world of accessories, with amazing new offerings appearing regularly. The Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro is a great timepiece, and the Huawei Freebuds Pro 2 is among the greatest wireless headphones you can get. What if you could use both devices together?


However, there are a few problems that you should be aware of if you’ve ever used a Huawei watch. The software has limitations, and it can be challenging to set up for those not used to sideloading programs. Plus, it’s a touch pricey at £449 in the United Kingdom. If you can see past those two drawbacks and want something original, consider the Huawei Watch Buds.

All about Watch Buds

Huawei’s Watch Buds are revolutionary since they incorporate wireless earbuds that can be removed from the smartwatch’s body. Despite its odd appearance, the Chinese maker is confident their product will profoundly impact the wearables industry.

The smartwatch has an AMOLED display of 1.43 inches in diameter with 326 PPI resolution and a stainless steel frame with a hinge. Huawei claims that over 100,000 folds have been completed by the folding mechanism. The Huawei Watch Buds have various health monitoring features and unique housing styles.


Features of Watch Buds

The True-Wireless headphones are an integrated part of the Huawei Watch Buds and affect the haptics of the smartwatch. The in-ear headphones are held magnetically in two grooves on the bottom of the watch, which contributes to the watch’s extremely high center of gravity. This means the Huawei Watch Buds have a more noticeable wrist movement than competing smartwatches. The hefty 67-gram (2.4-ounce) weight is also a drawback.

The mechanics of the case mean that it gives slightly when pressed and wobbles only a little. The screen and headphones can be unlocked with force on the push button. Because of this, accidentally unlocking it is quite unlikely to happen.

An amazing offering by Huawei

The 15 mm (0.6 in) deep stainless steel case is hefty even on broad wrists but otherwise appears well-made and of good quality. Overall, the crown is of low quality due to the lack of resistance felt when turning the knurled button-like control mechanism and the looseness of the pressure point. The OLED display on the Huawei Watch Buds, which also features a Clous de Paris bezel, is incredibly hard to read.

The supplied genuine leather strap has a width of 22 mm (0.9 in) and may accommodate a wrist size of 140 mm (5.5 in) to 210 mm (8.3 in). The strap has a lovely feel, although it might be less stiff and gentler. However, both should get better as time goes on.

Wrapping up

According to the company, the Huawei Watch Buds are not waterproof because of the hinged cover. According to Huawei Germany, the IP54 standard is met by both the headphones and the watch. Like rain or sweat, water shouldn’t be a concern if it gets into your unlocked smartwatch.
