The announcement was expected. On the occasion of the launch of its new Huawei P60 range in China, the Chinese manufacturer has unveiled some accessories. In particular, the new Huawei FreeBuds 5 open headphones, and the new high-end connected watch, Huawei Watch Ultimate.
Similar to the Apple Watch Ultra, the Huawei Watch Ultimate is aimed at the high-end segment. Like its American competitor, it relies mainly on advanced functions for extreme sports. The Huawei Watch Ultimate includes not only the classic functions of a connected watch, but also those of a dive computer.
Functions specifically dedicated to diving
In addition to the two buttons on the right side, typical of Huawei watches, it also has a button on the left side that acts as a shortcut to the dive mode. In detail, this mode allows you to enjoy three types of diving: free diving, technical diving and recreational diving.
The watch will be able to estimate the depth reached by the user, allow the setting of a dive time, warn the user about duration or depth, display reminders and account for the different decompression stops needed based on the elapsed time underwater and at depth.
To enable these underwater functions, Huawei claims to have used a zirconium case, believed to be more resistant than titanium and above all anti-corrosion. The watch is also certified 10 ATM, for a theoretical immersion up to 100 meters deep.
Around the round 1.5-inch LTPO AMOLED screen, Huawei has integrated a fixed ceramic bezel, which varies depending on the version – with associated compass information for the black model and decompression time markings for the blue version.
Advanced sports features
The Huawei Watch Ultimate also offers more classic functions for a connected watch. In particular, we find position detection from different GNSS constellations (GPS, Galileo, BeiDou, Glonass, QZSS) with dual frequency compatibility, heart rate and blood oxygenation monitoring, a reverse navigation function to return to the starting point on a trail or hike.
Furthermore, like previous Huawei watches, the Watch Ultimate allows the export of training data to Strava, Komoot or Runtastic, as well as the creation of training programs and the customization of training views, like on more classic sports watches.
The Huawei Watch Ultimate integrates a battery that guarantees, according to the company, up to 14 days of autonomy in standard use and 8 days with more intense use. It also includes an electrocardiogram function as well as a microphone and speaker to answer a call directly from the watch. However, note that the number of applications available for download is somewhat limited and that replies to received messages can only be made with messages pre-recorded by the watch.
Price and output
Huawei Watch Ultimate is already available in China. It will be available in Italy from April 3 in two versions at a price not yet announced. Probably a list price around €800.
