Huawei Watch looks much more affordable in new price leak (Updated)

Huawei’s new smartwatch is a thing of beauty, but we still don’t know exactly how much it will cost. Recent reports have suggested it could be priced as high as $1,000, but a new leak puts the Android Wear device at a much more reasonable price.

The device has popped up on German retail site Billiger, where its listed at €349 (roughly $370) in silver and black variants, or €399 ($424) in a gold color. If that’s accurate, we’re guessing the Huawei Watch prices will translate to $349 and $399 once it arrives in the U.S., putting the device in direct competition with the Apple Watch Sport.

The Huawei Watch packs a 1.4-inch 400 x 400-pixel AMOLED display with a round design made of stylish stainless steel. It also features a sapphire crystal cover, and a variety of sensors including a heart rate monitor and barometer.

We’re still waiting to hear how much the new Android Wear device will cost straight from Huawei, but at least now we have reason to believe the device won’t be totally out of reach.

Update: UK retailer Mobile Fun just reached out to us to confirm its own pricing for the Huawei watch. The device will cost £300 in silver or black, and £350 in gold. That seems to confirm these new prices are accurate, though we’re still waiting for the new smartwatch to get an official launch here in the U.S.
