In this article, we will explore the HUAWEI WATCH Buds in detail and explain why it is the perfect device for anyone looking to simplify their life and get the best of both the smartwatch and earbuds worlds.
Watch and earbuds come into one
Huawei created the industry’s first smartwatch with a magnetic pop-up cover design, which hosts a pair of TWS earbuds within it. The HUAWEI WATCH Buds adopts a highly cohesive structural design, using custom miniaturised precision components and advanced manufacturing processes bring a new and convenient experience. HUAWEI WATCH Buds is housed in a refined steel case with improved hardness and corrosion-resistance. Through exquisite hand- and satin-polishing, the watch brings an elegant sheen that creates an aura of atmospheric beauty around the aesthetics. 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 with a Full-grain leather strap made from top-layer calfskin, softly milled with exquisite textures and subtle lustre adding an elegant and stylish touch.
AI Noise Cancellation Calling & High Quality Sound
In terms of sound quality, The HUAWEI WATCH Buds earbuds are equipped with quad-magnetic full-Range Planar Diaphragm drove, enabling the small unit to deliver powerful, full-frequency and high-resolution audio, allowing users to listen to rich sound details. In addition, HUAWEI WATCH Buds earbuds also support Triple Adaptive EQ. The sound is optimised in real time according to the differences in ear canal structure, wearing status and volume level, customising the sound to achieve the best full-frequency listening experience for the users.
Other than listening to music, taking calls are another essential part of owning earbuds. The HUAWEI WATCH Buds are small yet mighty – built with dual microphones with audio pickup and a bone conduction sensor. The two microphones 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. This is then processed by a deep neural network call (DNN) noise reduction algorithm that effectively cancels noise and enhances vocals to deliver clear calls.
All-day Health Management
As a new smartwatch with its own earbuds, in addition to having full-featured TWS headphones, the HUAWEI WATCH Buds remains excellent in terms of functionality and experience as a watch. The smartwatch supports continuous heart rate, SpO2, and sleep monitoring. With the powers of Huawei’s self-designed TruSleepTM technology, the smartwatch can keep track of your sleep health and habits and also record snoring.
Comfortable to wear, easy to control
The unique 2-in-1 aspect of the HUAWEI WATCH Buds does not simply put earbuds into the smartwatch. In addition to ensuring that both aspects are compatible, there is also the need to carefully polish the design to ensure overall comfort when in use. The earbuds come in a lightweight octagonal cylindrical design with dimensions of 21.8x10.3x10.3mm. The weight of each earbud is roughly 4g. It is easy to wear and can be seamlessly placed back into the watch. With its cylindrical design, the earbuds provide a comfortable audio experience. At the same time, the earbuds adopt an in-ear design without any ear handles. Compared with traditional earbuds, the gravity centre of the HUAWEI WATCH Buds earbuds is closer to the ear canal making it more stable and will not be accidentally knocked off, making it the perfect fit for daily use, and exercising.
In addition to Adaptive Identification Technology, HUAWEI WATCH Buds' headphones also support new Wide-Area Auricle Touch Controls. Wide-area auricle touch controls, covering the earbuds, auricle, and area in front of ears, allow users to access multiple functions by just tapping their ears, enabling wider range and more accurate touch recognition. Double tap to answer or reject a call, or play or pause a song. Triple tap to enable or disable noise cancellation. It also supports customisation, enabling users to program what they need in just a tap away.
When wearing the earbuds, HUAWEI WATCH Buds activates the Adaptive Identification Technology equipped in both left and right earbuds to measure the acceleration angular velocity based on the users’ motion through the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) sensor, allowing HUAWEI WATCH Buds to recognise the orientation of the earbuds worn during normal conditions. If worn in the wrong orientation, the earbuds will intelligently auto-correct the left and right audio channels, getting rid of the rigid design where left and right earbuds have to be worn and stored in a certain way. In addition, for each user's different ear canal structure, HUAWEI WATCH Buds earbuds are also equipped with Ear Canal Adaptive technology.
