Honor Watch 4 launched in Europe for €150 ($163), misses out on eSIM & WIFI support

Last month, the Honor Watch 4 made its debut in China with a whole host of impressive features like a large AMOLED display and an aluminum body. The smartwatch has now arrived in Europe, however, it is missing a key feature that makes it special.

Honor Watch 4 specs

The Honor Watch 4 features an aluminum frame and a large 1.75-inch AMOLED display with a 450x390px resolution. It also has a 340 PPI pixel density and a 60 Hz refresh rate.

The Chinese version of the smartwatch offers eSIM support, providing independent cellular connectivity without needing to pair with a smartphone. This means users can make calls, send messages, and receive app notifications directly on the smartwatch. However,the European variant lacks eSIM support, resulting in the absence of these features for users in that region.

Additionally, the smartwatch lacks WiFi connectivity, requiring users in the EU to rely on Bluetooth 5.2 to connect their watches to smartphones for features like calling, messaging, and receiving notifications.

The smartwatch also has 5ATM waterproofing, meaning that you can wear the smartwatch while swimming. It comes with the usual health monitoring features like heart rate monitoring, blood-oxygen monitoring, sleep monitoring etc.

The Watch 4 comes with GPS support and a sizeable 451 mAh battery, capable of lasting up to 14 days with typical usage. Honor defines typical usage as continuous heart rate monitoring (smart mode) and sleep tracking, 30 minutes of Bluetooth calls weekly, 30 minutes of music playback weekly, 90 minutes of training with GPS activated per week, receiving 50 messages, 6 incoming calls, and 3 alarm clock alerts daily, and turning on the screen 200 times a day.

Pricing & availability

The Honor Watch 4 is available on the French website for €149.90, including taxes. In Europe, it is only offered in the black color option.
