CES 2016: Huawei unveils Huawei Watch Elegant and Jewel

Huawei Watch Elegant and JewelAs rumours suggested last month, Huawei brought two new Huawei Watch models to CES 2016. The new  new Huawei Watch Elegant and Jewel are geared at making smartwatches more appealing to women.

Both new models retain the hardware specifications of the original Huawei Watch including the fully round display but come in a rose gold-plated finish, smaller 10mm wristbands and with 10 “exclusive feminine” watch faces. They are slightly larger than the original models with 44mm cases compared to the original’s 42mm thanks to the new decorative elements introduced.

The dial of the Huawei Watch Jewel (on the right) is encircled by 68 1.5mm Swarovski Zirconia so that it “glistens and shines like nothing else available on the smartwatch market today.” The “more understated” Huawei Watch Elegant (on the left) trades in the crystals for a knurled pattern effect around the case.
