Huawei announces Watch D with ECG, blood pressure monitoring

Huawei unveiled the P50 Pocket with the Snapdragon 888 SoC and a flawless foldable display. At the same time, the company introduced the Watch D which we have been hearing about for a few weeks. According to GSM Arena, the Huawei Watch D has a 1.64 “AMOLED color touchscreen display with a resolution of 456 x 280 pixels and a pixel density of 326 ppi. It consists of a housing made of aluminum alloy and offers two color options: black and titanium.

The Watch D straps are made of fluoride rubber and are available in medium and large sizes. The first is 11.8 cm long and the second 13.3 cm long. The smartwatch comes with the standard set of health and fitness features such as a step counter, heart rate monitor, sleep tracker, and blood oxygen level monitor. But the main strengths of the Watch D are its ability to record your ECG and measure blood pressure.

The Huawei Watch D uses Huawei TruBP, which uses micropumps and airbags for wrist blood pressure measurement. Huawei says it has integrated a high-precision pressure sensor, a pressure feedback control circuit, and a low-flow resistance gas path to achieve measurements with a margin of error of + – 3 mmHg. For ECG, the Huawei Watch D relies on TruSeen 5.0+ technology, which uses eight circular photoelectric sensors and a pair of light sources with a curved sapphire crystal lens and PVD-coated ECG electrodes to filter out interference and get precise results.

The D watch is designed to detect the risk of atherosclerosis, arrhythmia and sleep apnea. Huawei enables smartwatch users to quickly get expert online consultation to help them understand their health data. Huawei said it has partnered with 301 hospitals in China to test the accuracy and reliability of the D Watch, which has also been registered as a Class II medical device with China’s Food and Drug Administration.

The rest of the Huawei Watch D highlights include a temperature sensor, multi-functional NFC, and IP68 dust and water resistance. Huawei hasn’t revealed the Watch D’s battery size, but says it will provide up to seven days of endurance in a typical use scenario. According to GSM Arena, the Huawei Watch D is priced at CNY 2,988 and goes on sale in China from December 25. There is no word on its availability in world markets. (ANI)
