2

In this article, we’re comparing two wearables which share identical internal specs and other features, and even if, apparently, they share a similar design because they come with circular displays, which are encased in stainless steel and have a button on the right side, it doesn’t mean that they look the same. More information about the Moto 360 2015 and Huawei Watch and a detailed comparison between them you’ll find in this article.

On the inside, they house a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, which is backed by 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage, but the Moto 360 has a bigger battery of 400mAh, while the Huawei Watch is settling for a 300mAh battery. Also, both watches are water resistant, they come with heart rate monitors, quick-release bands and run on Android Wear v1.3.

At first sight, the faces appear to be rounded on both watches, but in reality, the Moto 360 features a flat line at the base of the 1.37-inch display (360 x 325 pixels resolution with 263ppi). However, there is another variant with a larger 1.56-inch display which supports 360 x 330 pixels at 233ppi. As for the Huawei Watch, its display measures 1.4-inch and supports 400 x 400 pixels at 286ppi. It’s hard to notice any difference between the Moto 360 (2015) and the Huawei Watch in terms of screens, because the resolutions are very close, but still, you’ll see that the colors are more vibrant on the Huawei Watch, because the screen is AMOLED, while the Moto 360 is fitted with an IPS LCD display. Also, each watch has its display protected against scratches, so the Moto 360 has a layer of Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3, while Huawei added sapphire glass.

The Moto 360 supports Qi-standard wireless charging and the wireless charger was included in the box, while the Huawei Watch is charged only with a magnetic charging cradle.

Regarding the stainless steel casings, both watches are using 316L, but the available colors for the Huawei Watch are silver, black and rose gold, while the Moto 360 comes in variants of gold, black, silver and rose gold, with the possibility to choose your favorite bezel for the casing. Motorola created another version of the Moto 360, which is “Designed for Women” and has a slightly different design.

The price of the Moto 360 (small version) starts at $300, while the larger variant is $50 more expensive. The Huawei Watch costs $350, but the price is increased depending on the level of customization.
