Rounding out the smartwatch bit – it supports heart rate monitoring, SpO2 tracking, sleep and stress management as well as heart rate atrial fibrillation screening and ECG readings. You also get 80 workout modes. The headphones offer AI noise cancellation for calls and music listening. Watch Buds weigh 66.5 grams without the strap while the headphones weigh 4 grams each. The buds are IP54 rated while the watch does not have official ingress protection due to its opening mechanism. BeiDou, GLONASS and GPS positioning are also on board.

Watch Buds run HarmonyOS 3 and pair via Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity. Huawei claims the watch and its buds have a combined battery life of 3 days. The wireless headphones offer 4 hours of music playback or 2.5 hours of talk time with noise cancellation turned off. A full charge via the proprietary magnetic charger should take 100 minutes.
Huawei Watch Buds are priced at CNY 2,988 ($429) and are already on sale in China. No word on worldwide availability at this time.
Huawei 5X and 5X Pro Kids Watch are Huawei’s latest kids’ watches and they offer 1.6-inch AMOLED displays with 360 x 320 pixel resolutions and dual cameras in a tricked-out plastic shell. There is a 5MP front camera and an 8MP rear module and both watches can be rotated 360 degrees and even completely removed from the watch strap. The Pro model has the added benefit of a secondary monochrome display on the rear which can be used to save power and is also less distracting than the primary.
