According to rumors, the device will come with numerous accessories such as the watch body, of course, there will be straps of different sizes, different airbags and a measuring ruler for wrist circumference, a charger, a user manual, and many more.
Based on the guide video, the Watch D will come with an airbag that can be used to efficiently monitor blood pressure just like the traditional one used in clinics.
The airbag appears to be removable and has to be attached under the watch strap and connected with the watch D via a small pin to enable the blood pressure monitoring capabilities.
The report further added that users of the device will be able to measure their wrist circumference in order to match the size of the strap and the airbag.
Then the measurement can be used to adjust the strap accordingly and also, you can change different sizes of straps or swap the airbags.
When measuring blood pressure, the user can initiate the measurement by double-clicking a physical button on the smartwatch. A timer will pop up indicating that the blood pressure check is about to start. It is necessary to stay in a relaxed position, keep the wrist (with the device on) at the heart level with your palms on the shoulder, and support the elbow with your other hand.
Further revelations about the device include 32MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage and will have support for Bluetooth technology.
Additionally, a silver color variant of the Watch D was revealed via these leaks alongside its expected price of 2998 Yuan ($470).
The alleged Huawei Watch D is currently available for registration and it’s expected to launch on Dec. 23rd along with other Huawei products during the company’s winter product launch conference.
