    Wow. New watch designs just keep coming out in advance of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week.

    The latest Android Wear fashion design comes from Huawei, of all places.

    It's 42mm, and available in black, gold and silver:

    With Android Wear:

    Now if only one of these classic round watches worked with iOS, they'd make a killing.

    Damn, that is nice. I don't even like gold, but that gold watch looks pretty nice.

    That's the first smartwatch I've seen that looks ok. I'm sure the battery life is still nowhere near what it would need to be for me to consider one at all though.

    Agree. Apple Watch already looks cheesy and toy-like by comparison to the Moto 360, LG Urbane and now this one, and the Apple Watch isn't even out yet!

    Jony Ive must be on vacation or busy doing something besides design work. Theirs nothing distinctive or stylish about the Apple Watch. Yet I'm sure they've got plenty of reasons why it's rather plain and devoid of style. Hey its Apple, the logo alone sells anything it's attached to. An impressive accomplishment.

    Finally someone got the lugs right, I never liked the lack of lugs on the 360. Beautiful phone, AND sapphire glass? I think I'm first in line for one of these.

    Damn that looks nice. The only thing that's put me off from getting a smart watch is the fact that the battery life isn't usually good for more than a couple of days at the most, and it's yet another device I have to charge at the end of the night.
