Huawei Elegant and Huawei Jewel

Huawei has been pretty aggressive in hopping on the smartwatch bandwagon and it’s looking to start off the year on the right foot with two new Android Wear watches, the Huawei Elegant and the Huawei Jewel:

 Two new Huawei Watch models featuring a sleek, fashionable design were introduced, expanding the number of Huawei Watch models in the United States to eight. Named Elegant and Jewel, the two new styles deliver the same timeless, uncompromising style and functionality that generated accolades for the original models launched this past fall. But the new Elegant and Jewel Huawei Watches differ by delivering a beautiful blend of statement style and modern edge.

Like the existing Huawei Watch models, the new watches are inspired by classic, high-end wristwatch design and crafted with premium materials. Both feature the latest version of Android Wear™; iOS and Android compatibility; scratch-resistant, two-layer Sapphire crystal; and 316L cold-forged stainless steel bodies. And while they maintain the much-admired round face and body,

Elegant features a distinctive top ring design on a rose-gold plated body, and Jewel features 68 Swarovski Zirconia encircling the face. To further match their distinctive look, Elegant and Jewel will both come with a selection of exclusive watch faces.

Huawei Watch Elegant and Jewel will be available in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2016.
