The Huawei Watch D is the beleaguered Chinese manufacturer’s most advanced timepiece ever. And the device has apparently received the regulatory greenlights necessary for the device to be sold in Europe. The smartwatch was introduced in China last year and among the many health features the Watch D offers is the ability to take accurate blood pressure readings, something that even the Apple Watch cannot do.
The Huawei Watch D is coming this fall to Europe with advanced health sensors
It should be pointed out that some consumers with certain medical conditions will not be able to receive accurate blood pressure readings. Huawei notes that “The blood pressure measurement results may present a large margin of error if your posture is unstable (due to diseases such as Parkinson or cerebrovascular disease sequelae), or you suffer from arrhythmia such as atrial fibrillation, severe anemia, peripheral vascular disease, or arthritis. Individuals with pacemakers or other implantable devices are advised not to use the device’s ECG feature.”
The Huawei Watch D will also send you notifications on your watch reminding you when to take your blood pressure. The watch will keep you constantly aware about the status of important health related functions such as blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen levels and your heart rhythms.
The Huawei Watch D is compatible with Android 6 and later, iOS 12 and later, and HarmonyOS 2 and later
The Huawei Watch D comes in your favorite color, assuming that your favorite color is Graphite Black. It features a 1.64-inch AMOLED display with a 280 x 456 resolution. It charges wirelessly and requires the user to have a phone running Android 6 and up, iOS 12 and up, or HarmonyOS 2 and up. It features an IP68 rating making it impervious to dust and the watch can be submerged to a depth of 1.5 meters (nearly 5 feet) of fresh water for as long as 30 minutes.
Those in the U.S. interested in purchasing this watch might have to wait for U.S. regulators to sign off on the blood pressure feature, something that we wouldn’t hold our breath waiting for. Other Huawei watches are offered for sale in the U.S. via Amazon.
