Classic sports car-inspired design and materials

The smartwatch comes with the innovative quick fit titanium link strap, which users can easily disassemble or adjust and is made from titanium and polished with a rigorous sandblasting process for a perfect matte finish. Huawei’s new titanium buckle is accented with the Porsche Design Icon and makes the process of putting on and taking off the watch quick and easy.
The result is a flawlessly designed smartwatch that is premium, mature and scratch-resistant, ideal for everyday wear and outdoor activities.Two digital crowns feature Porsche Design’s iconic red circle and are a testament to the innovative and high-end manufacturing of the watch. With a gentle press, users can easily explore the various settings and configurations.
The customised Porsche Design watch faces are beautifully crafted and provide a sharp yet smart aesthetic. The classic and always-on watch face allows time to pass by elegantly on the wrist. Both the watch hands and numbers are easy to read. Less is more with the E-PURE watch face which takes the iconic analogue dial to the digital era. Motorsport-inspired racing lines displayed on the back of the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 40 RS are transferred from the Smartphone to the racing watch face, paying homage to the brand’s sports car DNA and racing history. The smartwatch also offers an innovative stopwatch face that allows users to start timing with a tap of the screen.
