Huawei and Vogue launch first female smartwatch

Tech meets fashion in new collaboration

The combinations of a white strap, rose gold and Swarovski Zirconia suggest femininity. But it's big.

The global partnership between Vogue and Huawei has arrived in Australia at an event in Sydney where the two companies launched Huawei’s new smartwatch collection designed for females.

Vogue Australia editor-in-chief , Edwina McCann, said technology, like fashion, is something that has and will continue to form part of personal style.

“Fashion influences every aspect of our lives, so it is no surprise that we’re starting to see technology evolving to not only make our lives easier, but also fit seamlessly into our everyday style,” she added.

Huawei is adamant that men can wear the new models too. But it's been fun picturing the guy who can make a white-strapped, rose gold watch with encrusted Swarovski crystals work for them.

There are two additions of the watch, the Jewel and the Elegant, both based on the original Huawei Watch. Both feature a rose-gold knurled pattern and leather watch strap, available in white or blue.

Each timepiece features a 1.4-inch touch-sensitive AMOLED watch face and run on the latest Android Wear software and is both Android and iOS compatible.

The Jewel also boasts 68 Swarovski Zirconia on the edge of the face and each model can be customised through the availability of 40 digital watch faces. They also feature a gyroscope, accelerometer, six-axis motion sensor and heart rate monitor.

Both will be available from April 20 for AUD$699 at selected Myer, Harvey Norman and Huawei Kiosks nationally.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
