Huawei Launches Australia’s First 4G SIM Enabled Smart Watch

When the Huawei Watch 2 is launched with Vodafone in Australia today, it will be the first 4G SIM-enabled smart watch available on the Australian market.

 “Huawei strives to improve life through innovation and connectivity and the Huawei Watch 2 is a product of that work,” says Eric Zhai, Managing Director of Huawei Consumer Business Group Australia. “As the internet of things becomes more fully realised, Smartphones and connected wearables will continue to bring benefit to people’s lives”

Standalone connectivity allows Huawei Watch 2 users to step away from their phone for periods of time and still have access to near full functionality of the Smart Watch. The SIM and built-in chip GPS facilitate calls and texts and the usage of apps such as Uber, Foursquare and Facebook messenger, all independent of a Bluetooth connected smartphone. Integration with Google Assistant allows the wearer to interact with the device through voice commands.

The design of the watch include dual-mic noise cancellation, to ensure a clear and stable telephone experience, and the integration of the antennae on the upper watch case facilitates signal reception of 4G, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC connectivity.

This device also benefits from the latest in mobile payment technology and Android pay to make convenient and secure transactions possible. For security, it locks itself automatically and disables the payment function when it is not on the user’s wrist.

The Huawei Watch 2 includes multiple sensors and advanced algorithms to provide the wearer with health and fitness solutions. Built-in smart sensors collect data points such as distance travelled, speed, steps, heart rate, calories and gait. This information is then used to power exercise programs and workout plans, and to advise on recovery time and training effects. 

The Huawei Watch 2 is available exclusively from Vodafone in Australia (RRP $599)

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
