HUAWEI WATCH Buds: 2-in-1 Smartwatch and Earbuds


Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG) announced the launch of HUAWEI WATCH Buds and HUAWEI FreeBuds 5. Embracing an innovative design and functional combination, the latest wearable duo is designed to enhance your entertainment, fitness and work experiences.


HUAWEI WATCH Buds: 2-in-1 Smartwatch and Earbuds

Huawei launched a new smartwatch with an innovative design and functional combination – the HUAWEI WATCH Buds. As the industry’s first smartwatch with a magnetic pop-up cover and earbuds design, blurring the boundaries between TWS earbuds and smartwatches. It combines the features and functions of both smart devices, merging the TWS earbuds and smartwatches into a nifty wearable.

HUAWEI WATCH Buds solves the problem of forgetting or losing TWS earbuds during daily use, and introduces a convenient and lightweight smart experience.


Elegant watch design with highly integrated architecture

With a vast high-definition display with a 1.43-inch, 466 x 466 resolution, AMOLED high-definition colour screen, it flawlessly complements the stainless-steel case, showing a new level of sophistication. The dazzling diamond-facet button with 710 Clous de Paris pattern present a unique metallic lustre with delicate texture. It comes a Full-grain leather strap[1] made from top-layer calfskin, softly-milled with exquisite textures and subtle lustre adding an elegant and stylish touch.

HUAWEI WATCH Buds’ built-in earbuds are custom miniaturised precision devices with six sound drivers built into an extremely limited space. With a net weight of only about 4g[2], the headphones are as light as a feather to carry and wear. As a first-of-its kind smartwatch designed with earbuds, Huawei WATCH Buds’ innovative pop-up design allows the watch cover to instantly pop up like a pocket watch with a simple push[3].

Full-featured TWS headset with Adaptive Identification Technology

HUAWEI WATCH Buds’ built-in wireless earbuds are designed in the same shaped octagonal cylindrical design, equipped with in-box reset and Adaptive Identification Technology that allows users to easily identify the left and right audio channels. It also supports new Wide-Area Auricle Touch Controls that enable a wider range and more accurate touch recognition.

Built with dual microphones with audio pickup and a bone conduction sensor, HUAWEI WATCH Buds can pick up both vocals and ambient sound while the bone conduction sensor accurately identifies sounds through reverberations in the user’s bones and absorbs their voice, distinguishing it clearly from ambient noises.


Full-featured smartwatch, sports and health remain strong points

Not forgetting the fitness feature of the HUAWEI WATCH Buds – it supports several health monitoring features such as automatic blood oxygen saturation detection[4] , TruSeen™ 5.0+ heart rate monitoring and sleep monitoring[5].

Equipped with 80 Sports Modes, the smartwatch also provides you with professional data analysis as well as an activity reward system, improving the quality of fitness training and allowing you to develop better training habits.

As a smart wearable device, HUAWEI WATCH Buds has a wealth of application scenarios. Users can synchronise text messages from their connected smartphones, as well supports quick replies for ease of use and convenience. The HUAWEI WATCH Buds has also expanded its usage boundaries, enabling access to a wide array of apps via Watch AppGallery[6].

HUAWEI WATCH Buds watch battery can power both the watch and the headphones, but it still has a decent battery life. It lasts up to 3 days on a full charge in typical applications[7] and up to 7 days in power saving mode (with the watch charging the headphones turned off).

HUAWEI FreeBuds 5: Ahead of the Curve Aesthetics

HUAWEI FreeBuds 5 features a streamlined design that maximizes comfort and aesthetic appeal. The earbuds’ futuristic droplet-shaped design is the result of tens of thousands of ergonomic simulations and hundreds of optimizations, which ensure that the double-C curves fit the contours of the ears. The droplet-shaped design provides a larger contact area between the earbuds and the ears, which reduces strain and results in a breathable wearing experience. The arc-shaped stem ensures that pressure is evenly distributed when an earbud is tapped, so that interactions are nimble and effortless.

Equipped with the bass turbo technology that produces bass tones as low as 16 Hz[8] the HUAWEI FreeBuds 5 promises you an audio experience that will blow you away. Its triple adaptive EQ optimizes sound quality in real time4 all the way from 100 Hz to 2000 Hz, to eliminate discrepancies caused by ear canal shape, wearing status, and volume level, and provide for consistently excellent sound quality.

HUAWEI FreeBuds 5 supports tri-mic hybrid noise cancellation that is adaptive to ear shape and wearing status. With intelligent dynamic ANC, the earbuds are able to identify ambient noise and adjust the noise cancellation mode in real time.
