Apart from the P50 Pocket, Huawei has unpacked its latest smartwatch, the Huawei Watch D, on Thursday, December 23. The wearable is Huawei’s first smartwatch that can monitor your blood pressure and ECG right from the wrist.
It measures your blood pressure levels with the use of a blood pressure measurement technology, called Huawei TruBP, which includes a high-precision pressure sensor, pressure feedback control circuits, and low-flow resistance gas paths.
The software is aided by micro air pumps, a curved airbag, and tension-resistant material in the strap that creates pressure and measures the blood pressure with an error margin of ± 3mmHg.
As for ECG, GSMArena notes that the Huawei Watch D relies on the TruSeen 5.0+ technology, which uses eight circular photoelectric sensors and a pair of luminous sources with a curved glass sapphire lens and PVD-coated ECG electrodes to filter out interference and achieve accurate results.
Huawei claimed that all these features enable the Watch D to detect Atherosclerosis, Arrhythmia, and risks of Sleep Apnea among its users.
The company said it has partnered with 301 hospitals in China to test the Watch D’s accuracy and registered the wearable as a Class II medical device with China’s Food and Drug Administration.
In addition, the Watch D packs blood oxygen and sleep monitors, a temperature sensor, and over 70 sports modes contained in a 1.64-inch square body with 280 x 456 AMOLED display.
It can pair with devices running HarmonyOS 2 and above, Android 6.0, and iOS 9.0. Other features include a built-in GPS and microphone, NFC support, IP68 dust and water resistance, as well as a 451 mAh battery that can last for seven days.
Huawei Watch D comes in two colors—Classic Black and Elegant Titanium—and is now selling in China for ¥2,888 (~P22,720). Huawei has yet to disclose availability in other countries.
