Huawei has already shown us in other smart watches, such as the Watch Ultimate that we analyzed a few months ago, that it is capable of offering devices of this type with very good finishes and, technologically speaking, of high quality.
With the Huawei Watch 4 Pro They have gone one step further, offering not only great quality, but also a premium touch that will delight those users who are looking for a device with high standards in its manufacture and materials.
It’s like having a watch of a lifetime, with the finishes of the big brands, but being a smart device and offering all the best of that world.
Let’s stop preambles and we are going to analyze this new Huawei smartwatch, because everything seems to indicate that we are going to have a really good time.
The review of the Huawei Watch 4 Pro analysis, test and opinion of Computerhoy:
Data sheet of the Huawei Watch 4 Pro
There is only room for one sentence… it is very premium
This Huawei Watch 4 Pro is spectacular in every way, not only for materials, but also for finishes and exquisite design. Dare we say it is one of the best Huawei smartwatches to date.
Due to its structure, it is not a smartwatch that at first is in direct competition with the Apple Watch Ultra or the Apple Watch Series 8, since these are square and this one is round, but in spirit, it is the smartwatch that Huawei has made to unseat to those of the bitten apple, without a doubt.
The technique that the Chinese brand has used is to offer a watch with finishes to match those offered by the Apple Watch Ultra, but going a step further to implement elegance, sobriety and a touch of classicism in the same device.
The casing is aerospace grade titanium, which provides the image and sensations of wearing a very premium range smartwatch. The strap is made of the same material, so this feeling of a luxury watch is multiplied.
It is true that there may be users who find it a heavy smartwatch, but for how big it is, it is really surprising how comfortable it is to wear it on the wrist thanks to its 65 grams of weight (without the strap).
The strap is 22mm and it incorporates an extremely simple system to replace it by means of a button that allows us, just by pressing it, to separate it from the casing. Something that we have loved is that, being a titanium strap, Huawei It has included more parts to incorporate in case our doll is bigger and we need to expand it.
We have a button on the right edge, which is dedicated to taking us to the applications or works to return to the sphere when we are in an app. Also has another button in this same area, but at the bottom, which is used for quick actions and recent applications.
It is a smart watch that helps us to go swimming without problems, since we are talking about a 5 ATM resistanceor what is the same, guarantee of being able to submerge ourselves until 50 meters in salt water.
The screen is touch type AMOLED LTPO with 1.5 inches, which offers a brightness of 1,000 nights and a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels, reaching a 310 dpi density. We are talking about a sapphire crystal panel and a screen-to-body ratio of 71.72%.
It is from a screen with system Always On Display low consumption of only 1 Hz.
looks really very good, both indoors and outdoorswith a definition of color that we have loved and excellent viewing angles.
It’s a screen joy, especially since, as we told you, it is a great panel both inside the house and outside. It does not matter if there are many reflections or if the sun shines directly, since we will be able to see it in perfect condition, thanks to its good definition and quality of brightness.
When it comes to responding it is fastwithout any delay and with sufficient fluidity to follow the rhythm that we set without any problem.
Notifications, health and exercise to the millimeter, although apps are still missing
This is a watch equipped with the best functions to obtain measurements on our health and on our sports activity, although it is not a device that is sport.
Regarding the health faculties that it integrates, we can highlight:
The system Respiratory Check, by which it is able to record the respiratory rate, the range of SpO2 (blood oxygen) and the sounds of coughing, with which it can assess the lung health of the individual. Let us make it clear that this is an indication whose results, if they are not positive, must be corroborated by a specialized doctor. It also incorporates the sleep motorization Huawei TruSleep 3.0 thanks to which it informs us of the stages of sleep (light sleep, deep sleep, REM and awake), by analyzing multiple parameters. use the Health Glance function to get data on heart rate, detection of arterial stiffness, stress levels and skin temperature. In addition to all this, it has real time reminders For those who have a problem with respect to everything that we have indicated lines above. incorporates a fall detection system that allows an SOS message to appear on the watch, so that when pressed, we can communicate with a previously configured contact. It also supports more than 100 sports modesincluding running, cycling, swimming and more, to achieve better results from our efforts in these sports.
Regarding the ability of the Huawei Watch 4 Pro to tune to the maximum with the sensors and motorization functions, we have to give it an A+since in this sense the brand achieves that its devices have great accuracy.
As is normal in Huawei smartwatches, the control and collection of all data is done through the health appwhich is available for iOS and Android (using AppGallery).
This is one application that is very clear with a graphics system well-defined, with which we will be able to better understand what has been the result of our physical effort or health measurement, in addition to incorporating a history of all the main sections.
The clock is synchronized with our smartphone through the Bluetooth 5.2 and is also compatible with NFC. Inside the watch we can store music, in order to synchronize them with a bluetooth headset and not have to depend on the mobile for it.
The operating system that rules the new Huawei smartwatch is Harmony OS 3.0which is much more fluid than the previous version and with superior performance in all the internal movements that we are making in the watch.
The app store is still somewhat limited with absences as important as Spotify o Runtasticto give you two examples.
Although you cannot install a Spotify app on the watch, we will be able to manage it from the smartwatch, once opened on the mobile, being able to skip the song or turn the volume up and down. In the case of Runtastic, the necessary data can be sent to the phone app, since that part is compatible.
We will can change spheres for those that come predetermined on the watch or download new ones (both paid and free) in the Health app, in order to give it a different touch whenever we want.
We will receive the smartphone notificationsalthough we will not be able to answer those that require written text, as is already the case in Google’s WearOS operating system or Apple Watch.
By incorporating a speaker and two microphones (to guarantee higher quality) calls can be answered that they do to us to the mobile. The watch is compatible with eSIM, so it could be incorporated.
More limited than we would have liked
The brand ensures that the autonomy of this Huawei Watch 4 Pro is should move between 4 and 5 days.
We must refute this claim with great regret, as our tests have not been as optimistic and we have experienced results of less duration.
In normal use, in our day to day, We have never managed to exceed 3 days of autonomyleaving only two when the level of notifications or exercise was more intense.
We have tried to subject them to different situations, making it receive few notifications and using it for some exercise or letting everything the phone receives show us on the clock screen and using it to manage the music that played on Spotify.
In the end, the result has been the same, he endures it both days without a problem, but he has serious difficulties to exceed 3 daysLet alone to get to 4 or 5.
Of course, Huawei has a ultra wide autonomy systemwhich deactivates a good part of the watch’s functions (including the possibility of changing the dial) in exchange for greater autonomy, although it does not seem to us that it is an excessively usable function, except for an emergency.
As for charging, it is wireless, using a magnetic charger Extremely effective and that is placed the first time every time. It is capable of recovering 50% of the battery in just 25-27 minutes, to full power in just 64-66 minutes.
Another extremely positive facet is the fact of being Compatible with universal Qi wireless chargers.
Versions, offers and price of the Huawei Watch Watch 4 Pro
The truth is that the Huawei 4 Pro can be found in the Titanium version or another called Brown Leather.
You cannot opt for anything other than these two options, although the one we have analyzed is the Titanium version.
We can opt for the Huawei Watch 4, which is smaller with a sphere size of 46 mm and made of steel, along with a strap made of the same material. In addition, due to its launch, the brand is giving away the Huawei FreeBuds 5i headphones totally free. The price, with fluoroelastomer strap is 449,90 euros.
Regarding the price of Huawei Watch 4 Pro, it is not a smartwatch that is exactly cheap, but at the level in which we find ourselves, it is even more affordable than an Apple Watch Ultra. It will be available in your version Brown Leather for 549.90 euros and by 649,90 euros in its Titanium version, also with the FreeBuds 5i as a promotional gift.
Is it worth buying the Huawei Watch 4 Pro?
The statement that you could read almost at the beginning of this analysis, considering this watch as one of the best that Huawei has made, which also places it as one of the best in the entire market, we believe that it has been demonstrated after all that we have told you. we have commented
It may be that for some user it is excessively large or even consider that it is heavy (something that contradicts its size, that is, it has a very good size/weight performance), there are those who consider that it is “too stately”, but the truth is that all these statements can be diluted between its quality, not only exterior, but also interior.
The level of finishes is spectacular, are screen is amazinghe fluency level The system is one of the best on the market and, of course, the number of functions that it offers us can be used for health, exercise or daily use.
It may be that the autonomy could be better, but, unless you are a person who is very uncomfortable charging the watch every 2-3 days (many WearOS have to be charged every day), it does not seem like a compelling reason to question all the good things about the smartwatch.
With all this we mean that, if you like it, do not hesitate to buy it, because what you are going to wear on your wrist is going to be quality everywhere.
