Huawei Watch: One of the most watch-like smartwatches around

There are seven versions of the Huawei Watch: three under the Classic range, two under the Active range, and another two under the Elite range. They all sport the same components under the hood; the differences lie in the case finish and strap type.

Here's a table telling the aesthetic difference among the versions:

To recap, the Huawei Watch has a circular 1.4-inch AMOLED display (protected by scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass, no less), and is powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 4GB of storage and 512MB of RAM. Onboard sensors also allow it to track your heart rate and activity. With a 42mm diameter case, an always-on screen, premium materials, and tons of clock faces that mimic traditional watches, it is one of the most traditional watch-like smartwatches we've seen to date. Since the Huawei Watch runs Android Wear, it works best with Android phones; but iPhone users can get it too as there’s now an Android Wear app for iOS.
