Huawei was somewhat shy, at least compared to others, at IFA2022 when it presented its fighter for the middle class of smartphones, but also a real revolution among smart watches. While the Huawei Nova 10 is powered.
With a Snapdragon 778 4G, a battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh, a 50 MP camera and a price of €549, my eye fell on the Huawei Watch D. The slightly chunky-looking smart watch hides probably the first usable, or to put it better, wrist-worn blood pressure monitor . Namely, Huawei has hidden a small pump in the belt that inflates it so that blood pressure readings are as accurate as possible. Huawei claims that the watch D is accurate to within ±3mmHg of the actual pressure, which is impressive.
However, in addition to measuring blood pressure, the watch also has the option of measuring a single-channel electrocardiogram (ECG), a skin surface temperature meter. SpO2 sensor measuring blood oxygen saturation and heart rate measurement. By the way, Huawei has the most accurate heart rate measurement along with the Apple watch, and if you don’t believe me, check out the analysis by Youtuber TheQuantifiedScientist.
In order to make the Huawei Watch D even better compared to the attractive Garmin Venu Sq2 and Fitbit Sense 2, also presented at the IFA2022 event, Huawei also gave it an IP68 waterproof certificate, an AMOLED screen, the ability to track up to 70 different sports and a battery that should last watch for a lifetime of 7 days on a single charge.
Such really impressive specifications were at the expense of an attractive design, but also a slightly higher price, which in the Eurozone countries should amount to some €449.

The real test will show if this watch is really worth the money, but it’s amazing how far smart watches can go in terms of monitoring the basic parameters of our body in order to preserve or at least monitor health. In my opinion, the only thing left to do is to add the possibility of measuring blood glucose levels via optical sensors and maybe a few other things to make smart watches a must.
