Huawei Malaysia has recently teased the local arrival of its Apple Watch Ultra challenger, the Huawei Watch Ultimate, via its official Facebook page. As you may recall, we first discovered a listing of the brand’s premium wearable in SIRIM’s database not long after its launch in China back in March this year.
To recap, the Watch Ultimate sports a zirconium-based liquid metal case, along with a ceramic bezel and rear case, 2.3 mm sapphire glass screen protection, and a choice of either a HNBR rubber or titanium alloy straps. It complies with ISO 22810:2010 and EN 13319 standards, and is also rated at 10 ATM – meaning that it is capable of withstanding pressure equivalent to 100 metres of still water depth for 10 minutes.
On the new smartwatch is a 1.5-inch circular LTPO AMOLED touchscreen with 466 x 466 pixel resolution, a rotating crown on the top-right, and two pusher buttons on both sides. Also onboard are numerous sensors that can track heart rate, air pressure, depth and so on, along with a built-in speaker, microphone, and also GPS, NFC and Bluetooth support.
Features-wise, the Huawei Watch Ultimate comes with numerous health and fitness tracking functions such as TruSeen 5.0 heart rate monitoring, TruSleep 3.0 sleep tracking, as well as ECG and SpO2 monitoring. There’s also Strava and Runtastic integrations, and a new Expedition Mode which uses dual-frequency five-system GNSS positioning capabilities to provide accurate mapping and positioning. Being a smartwatch, it also features notifications, remote calling, music playback and other typical functions.
In terms of battery, Huawei promises that the wearable’s 530 mAh battery is capable of lasting up to 14 days on a single charge when used typically, and up to eight days if used actively. Charging is done wirelessly, and is claimed to take only 60 minutes in order to achieve a full top-up.
For your reference, the Huawei Watch Ultimate launched in China at CNY 5,999 (~RM 3,885) for the Expedition Black colour option which comes with rubber straps, and CNY 6,999 (~RM 4,533) for the Voyage Blue variant that comes with titanium alloy straps. While no exact date was provided, there’s a chance that it could debut alongside the company’s P60 flagship smartphone series, which is slated to launch in Malaysia tomorrow on 11 May 2023.
