“Smart” watches have long become an integral part of the lives of many people around the world, and therefore manufacturers of such devices continue to constantly improve them. Huawei, of course, is one of such manufacturers, and today I will tell you about its flagship watch, the HUAWEI Watch 4 Pro. Let’s start the review, of course, with the appearance of the device.

Externally, the watch looks exactly the way a decent watch should look. This is probably one of the main advantages of this device; the watch looks like a classic watch. The buyer gets a round dial (or should we say screen?), one regular button and a rotating button that pretends to be the winding crown of a regular mechanical watch. I’m reviewing a version of the watch with a titanium strap, but there is also a cheaper version with a leather strap. If you plan to swim with your watch, then a leather strap will not suit you right away; look towards a metal one.

The watch case, it is worth noting, is also made of titanium, and the screen is protected by sapphire glass. It goes without saying that the watch is protected from water (withstands pressure up to 5 Bar) and dust according to the IP6X standard. As a result, it turns out that we have a very durable watch that should survive virtually any weather conditions and situations in which the user may find himself. The physical dimensions of all this beauty, by the way, are 47.6 x 47.6 x 12.9 millimeters. Without taking into account the strap, of course.

It also goes without saying that the watch strap can be easily replaced, but I couldn’t think of any reasons why I could think of changing the extremely beautiful and comfortable titanium strap.

The overall impressions of the watch’s design and assembly are extremely positive, the watch itself feels literally monolithic, and the feeling of an expensive device appears exactly from the moment you take the watch in your hand for the first time and does not disappear.

The screen, protected by sapphire glass, has a diagonal of 1.5 inches and a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels, which gives it a pixel density of 311 ppi. This screen, of course, is made using AMOLED (LTPO) technology with a vertical scanning frequency of 60 Hz. It goes without saying that the watch can dynamically change this indicator, and the minimum refresh rate is 1 Hz.

Next, it’s worth taking a closer look at the main characteristics of the watch before moving on to the software and user experience.

  • Screen – AMOLED LTPO 466×466 pixels with a brightness of 800 nits.
  • Case materials: titanium, sapphire glass, ceramics.
  • Moisture protection – immersion up to 5 atmospheres.
  • Dust protection – IP6X.
  • Sensors – accelerometer, gyroscope, geomagnetic sensor, optical heart rate meter, barometer and thermometer.
  • Wireless connections – LTE via eSIM, Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz, GPS, Galileo, Deidou, NFC and Bluetooth (version 5.2).
  • There is a microphone and speaker.

The watch fits perfectly on the hand, and for those with thin hands, it is possible to adjust the coverage of the strap. The kit includes several additional links that can be built into the belt itself and increase its length if you have a larger hand.

As I said above, you can use HUAWEI Watch 4 Pro in any weather conditions. If with rain and other troubles everything is clear from the point about the protection of the device, then what about use in the sun? Yes, everything is fine. The screen with a brightness of 800 nits allows you to see everything shown on it with sufficient comfort, but it is worth considering that the sapphire crystal can also act as a mirror when the screen is turned off.

The system in the watch works quickly and looks quite nice. All important functions are always literally one or two button presses or swipes away from the user, and good customization of the quick access menu is also available to the user.

The accuracy of most sensors that measure body parameters is difficult to determine without special medical equipment, but the watch is capable of measuring an ECG, diagnosing arterial stiffness, measuring the level of oxygen in the blood (the Chinese version of the watch also has a sugar measurement, but it gives recommendations, not really anything). then measures) and calculate the heart rate.

Another feature of the watch is the built-in GPS module, which spends about 10 seconds on average connecting to a satellite and determining the location with an accuracy of 5-10 meters. Since the watch, due to the presence of eSIM, can work autonomously from your smartphone, the presence of GPS is definitely welcome.

Also, a bonus that comes with eSIM will be the ability to make calls from the watch. For this purpose, there is a good microphone and a not very loud speaker. Overall, it turns out that this is actually a smartphone in a watch body, and even with a very decent battery life.

Speaking of the last one. If you put the HUAWEI Watch 4 Pro in watch mode, it will last about 20 days, and in assistant mode for your smartphone you can count on 9-10 days on a single charge. If you decide to use them for navigation and, in general, to fully use the functionality, then they will last for 3-4 days. If the watch runs out of charge at the wrong moment, then in 15 minutes its charge can be replenished to 20%, and a full charge will take only 65 minutes.

Let’s summarize traditionally

In the end, I would like to say that the HUAWEI Watch 4 Pro turned out to be an excellent device with extensive functionality that will allow the watch not only to be an addition to your smartphone, but also a partial replacement for it. At the same time, the device is superbly assembled, and high-quality materials and a fairly high degree of protection open up additional opportunities for those who need them. As for the price, the version being reviewed today with a titanium strap will cost approximately 56 thousand rubles, and the same watch with a leather strap will cost 40 thousand rubles.
