Huawei held a big launch event in Munich where it detailed pricing and availability details for the P60 Pro and Mate X3 in Europe but we also got a pair of new smartwatches with the Watch 4 and Watch 4 Pro.
The Pro model brings a 1.5-inch LTPO AMOLED screen with sapphire glass. Its 48mm casing is made from TC4 titanium alloy which is said to be three times stronger than regular titanium. The regular Watch 4 comes with a 46mm stainless steel casing. Both watches have Always on Display functionality and plenty of new planetary watch face options and are 5ATM water resistant.
Both watches can track over 100 workout modes and the usual health-tracking features. The new feature on the Watch 4 series is the one-minute seven-point health overview which congregates your heart rate, SpO2, ECG, skin temperature, arterial stiffness, stress and respiratory health data into one single report.
Watch 4 Pro also gets the added benefit of LTE connectivity via eSIM as well as onboard GPS. Battery life on the Watch 4 is rated at three days of typical usage while Watch 4 Pro should last up to 4.5 days. The power-saving modes can extend the endurance to 14 days on the Watch 4 and 21 days on the Pro.
Huawei Watch 4 starts at €450/£400 with its black fluoroelastomer strap. Watch 4 Pro with the titanium strap starts at €700/£600 while the brown leather strap option slots in at €550/£500. The Huawei Watch 4 series is set to go on open sale in Europe in the coming weeks.
Not true - this is not Huawei's doing. Your country's health authority is the one that has the power to give or (in this case) withhold permission for use of the watch's function in the country. This is the same for all smartwatches - ...
No....Its because the ECG has not been accredited in that country. Same with Samsung here has not been accredited in Asia and some other countries (there was a list a not long ago from the Samsung site of of about 32 Accredited Countries) cannot use ...
In The Netherlands the ECG functionality is blocked by Huawei on all their watches (3 pro, GT3, GT3 pro, Watch Ultimate, GT4, GT4 pro). Very childish just because ASML is not allowed to sell their EUV machines to China !
