Huawei's Watch + Buds available in Canada now

I love a good wearable.  I have my Pixel Watch on me nearly every waking moment, and lately been doing lots of walks and bike rides where my Pixel Buds Pro are in my ears.

Huawei has a neat little innovation that mixes the 2 of these into 1 packaging.  A Huawei watch, that has a flip up lid to reveal the storage compartment for ear buds!  

I'm intrigued.  I've loved the Freebuds, and really liked the premium build on the Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro - so seeing a semblence of the 2 mixed together definitely catches my eye.

$700CDN isn't anything to balk at, but a good watch, and then decent earbuds would definitely amount to more than that, and then they're even throwing in a free smart scale

2-in-1 Smartwatch and Earbuds Design

Encased in a refined steel case with enhanced hardness and corrosion resistance, the HUAWEI WATCH Buds exudes elegance. The high-definition 1.43-inch AMOLED color screen with a resolution of 466 x 466 seamlessly complements the stainless-steel case, also featuring a diamond-facet button with a unique metallic lustre and a full-grain leather strap made from top-layer calfskin, adding a touch of elegance and style all within a 14.99mm thickness.

The watch's innovative pop-up design allows the cover to effortlessly open, revealing the attached earbuds. Huawei has extensively tested the ultra-miniature precision rotating shaft, ensuring its reliability and durability through 100,000 cycles of opening and closing, along with a 5kg stress test.

Premium Earbuds Audio

Additionally, the HUAWEI WATCH Buds supports Wide-Area Auricle Touch Controls, enabling users to access multiple functions by tapping various areas of their ears. These touch controls offer a wider range and more accurate recognition, facilitating effortless call management and music control.

For clear call quality, the HUAWEI WATCH Buds incorporates dual microphones with audio pickup and a bone conduction sensor. This combination allows the earbuds to pick up vocals and ambient sounds while effectively cancelling noise and enhancing voice clarity through a deep neural network noise reduction algorithm.
