At an event held at its headquarters in China, Huawei presented not only the new folding P50 Pocket but also introduced a new smartwatch known as Huawei Watch D. At first, this device may seem like just another option on the market, but the Watch D brings as its main differential the ability to measure the user’s blood pressure.
So far, only Samsung has managed to deliver a smartwatch that offers this essential feature. Now, Huawei has an option in the segment to compete with the Korean competitor. With a rectangular design, the Huawei Watch has an aluminum build, and the straps are silicone and can also be replaced with a leather option.
Huawei Watch D Features
The Watch D’s display is 1.64 inches and delivers 326 PPI, and the side buttons can be used to control the HarmonyOS interface. The manufacturer also highlights the presence of IP68 certification against water and dust.
The watch delivers continuous monitoring of the wearer’s heart rate, ECG, can measure the level of oxygen in the blood (SpO2), track sleep, and support up to 70 physical exercises with automatic detection. Finally, the autonomy is up to 7 days if the user uses the measurement of blood pressure and ECG, and this number can go up to 10 days. Charging is done using the wireless cradle that came with the watch.
People living in China can still pay a monthly plan of 599 yuan to have the data collected by Watch D sent directly to the doctor.
