Besides launching the P60 series, Mate X3 and MatePad 11 2023, HUAWEI also launched a new flagship wearable with a premium design and exclusive features. Called the HUAWEI WATCH Ultimate, read on to find out more about the smartwatch. 

First up, the WATCH Ultimate is a tier above the GT 3 Pro and is a competitor to the Apple Watch Ultra. However, unlike the latter, the WATCH Ultimate sports a traditional circular design and doesn’t look out of place with other branded watches out there.


It sports a circular 1.5-inch LTPO ALOMED panel that can vary the refresh rate from 1 to 60Hz. Moreover, the panel is protected by sapphire glass.

In terms of build quality, the WATCH Ultimate is the world’s first smartwatch equipped with ultra-strong amorphous zirconium alloy. Its body supports 16 water-resistant structures, making the smartwatch capable of withstanding extreme deep-sea pressure. 


Specifically, the WATCH Ultimate has the ISO 22810 water resistance standard and EN13319 device equipment standard tests. This ensures 24-hour 110-meter depth submersion or 10 ATM. 

Besides that, the smartwatch also supports a more capable Beidou satellite message capability found on the Mate 50 series. With it, the WATCH Ultimate is the world's first popular smartwatch to support two-way Beidou satellite messages, making it easier to send distress messages in areas without a cellular network. 


HUAWEI promised up to 14 days of battery life with the 540mAh cell, which also supports Qi wireless charging that could fully recharge the smartwatch in 60 minutes. Other notable specs include ECG measurements, heart rate and blood oxygen sensors, IP68 water resistance, dual-frequency five-system GNSS positioning and colour options of either Expedition Black or Voyage Blue. 

In China, the WATCH Ultimate is priced at CNY5999 or ~RM3881 and CNY6999 or ~RM4528 for the higher-end variant. It will first go on sale in China on 30 March 2023 and will be available in the UK and EU starting 3 April 2023. 

As of the time of writing, HUAWEI has yet to reveal whether the smartwatch will be available outside the mentioned regions. Hence, make sure to stay tuned to TechNave for the latest development on this and for other trending tech news.
