The Huawei Watch is michievously priced at €999/$1083 on pre-order page

Huawei Watch silver  ElectronicsA few days ago, we ran a story refuting the rumour that the Huawei Watch might be retailing for $1000. However, now has the Huawei Watch available to pre-order for €999 ($1083), which is an eye-watering amount to spend for an Android Wear smartwatch. As you can probably tell though, all is not as it seems.

Unsurprisingly, this (€999/$1083) pre-order price is just a placeholder, as alluded to by the Important Note from Amazon on the listing page:

“There is no suggested retail price of pages of the manufacturer. The Amazon selling price can therefore change.”

It’s something that Amazon often do with pre-order items, placing wildly unrealistic price tags on items with no official retail value so that the online retailer isn’t out of pocket when the actual price is revealed. It’s just a matter of waiting for Huawei to announce an official price for the smartwatch. Whatever the official price for the Huawei Watch turns out to be, it’s extremely doubtful that it will be priced anywhere near the $1000 figure. Even the gold variant with its 3 ounces of 24-karat gold will be much, much cheaper than that.
