Huawei's Jewel and Elegant Android Wear watches now available in US

A Huawei-branded Android phone is probably next

Huawei's promised to bring a "flagship" phone to the US this year. The Chinese company built the Nexus 6P, Google's current flagship, but the name "Huawei" won't be familiar to most US consumers, judging their Android phone options. In the meantime, Huawei is boosting its Stateside credibility with two new Android Wear watches: the Jewel (pictured above) and the Elegant (below), both aimed at women.

We saw this classy pair of watches at CES this year. They only differ from the original Huawei Watch in terms of looks. Same circular screen, same bulky size. The Jewel goes for $599, thanks to its Swarovski crystals, and the Elegant is $499 — still a considerable premium over the original, which is available for $249.99 at Best Buy right now.

(Copy Editor's note: my watch is from Target and it was $14. It's lasted me four years, going on five!)
