It's taken a while, but companies are finally getting better at smartwatch design. Following the original Moto 360, we're starting to see some stylish Android Wear devices, like the long-awaited Huawei Watch. We first clapped eyes on this circular timepiece at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, more than eight months ago. Why it's taken so long to arrive in the UK is anyone's guess, but anyway -- starting today, you can order one from vMall and select Selfridges stores. That premium design will cost you though -- the Huawei Watch starts at £289 for a silver model with a leather band. You'll pay extra for the ceramic black model and the price climbs higher if you prefer a dressier link or mesh strap. Finally, Wareable reports that the rose gold model will set you back an eye-watering £599.

While it's no impulse purchase, spending such a large amount of cash will reward you with some top-tier Android Wear specs. It starts with a 1.4-inch circular AMOLED display, which has a 400 x 400 resolution and no black bar running along the bottom (sorry, Moto 360). It runs on a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor and 512MB of RAM, which should be plenty for Google's wearable OS and a smattering of third-party apps. A 300mAh battery keeps the device ticking over and there's even a heart-rate sensor, should you want to take it out on a run. Android Wear isn't perfect, but if money is no object and you're desperate to jump on the smartwatch bandwagon, this is certainly one to consider.
