The Huawei Watch GT is a best seller
Some good news for Huawei
The Huawei Watch GT has now sold over two million units worldwide — that’s the best number among other Huawei smartwatches.
According to data from analyst firm IDC on global wearable vendors in the first quarter of 2019, Huawei has achieved year-on-year growth of 282.2% against the same quarter in 2018. In that period last year, Huawei shipped five million units in total which puts it among the top three global wearable vendors.
The Huawei Watch GT was first launched in October 2018 alongside the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and other products by the company.
This is a bit of good news for Huawei who is currently facing perhaps its toughest challenge to date following a ban by the US government over security issues.
How to wear red: 3 stylish pairings to try
Those red pieces shouldn’t be gathering dust
It’s easy to think that red is best worn sparingly or just as an accent. It is after all, such a bold, eye-catching color. We normally wear a pair of red heels to add a pop of color to an all-black ensemble, or a cute red top to go with neutral colored bottoms. We rarely buy something red for every day use, whether that’s a purse or a phone, because it just won’t go well with most of our outfits.
This is exactly why we sometimes feel like we have nothing to wear — when we build a wardrobe without considering new color pairings and when we reserve certain colors for special occasions. Here are three new combinations to try with those red pieces that don’t see the light of day (or night) as often as they should:
Red + blush pink: spring to summer
This color combination will give you an instant flirty, feminine look especially when you do it with a silk slip dress and strappy sandals. Give it a little bit more structure by throwing on a red blazer, and stick to the same tonal colors when accessorizing to look more put together. You can dress it up with taller heels, or down with flats.
Red + tan: end of summer to fall
Be a wee bit more unpredictable by pairing red with the brown pieces in your closet. A red crop top worn with tan high waist pants and mules is a good departure from the light, breezy looks you’re used to wearing during summer. When temperatures dip, add a coat in similar brown tones to stay warm. I used to be so averse to wearing this color combination but it’s now one of my favorites!
Red + red: winter to early spring
Tonal dressing is my go-to when I’m in a hurry to get ready in the morning and it doesn’t just apply to neutrals. Try wearing red on red with your thigh-high boots especially during winter when everyone else is sporting the same black coat. If you’re feeling feisty, go all-red even down to your shoes and purse and you’ll be surprised how powerful it will make you feel. Otherwise, you’re welcome to tone it down with the black staples you already have.
From these three looks alone, you can create more: turn the slip dress into a skirt by wearing the red sweater over it, or pair the crop top with the shorts and nude heels when the weather is scorching and unforgiving. The possibilities are endless! As long as you see red to be the versatile color that it actually is, you’ll never run out of looks to try, and that red phone you carry every day will never clash with your look again.
Xiaomi Mi AirDots Pro: Price and availability in the Philippines
The AirPods competitor from Xiaomi
There’s no denying that the Xiaomi’s AirDots Pro strongly resembles Apple’s AirPods. Even their names are quite similar; however, the AirDots Pro doesn’t have the same premium price of Apple’s accessory.
The AirDots Pro is a pair of wireless earphones that has a Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity, noise-canceling microphones, and touch controls. According to Xiaomi, battery life is up to four hours, while the charging case offers an extra 10 hours. Both Android and iOS are supported by the AirDots Pro.
Through Mi Authorized Stores in the Philippines, the AirDots Pro retails for PhP 3,490. It’s slightly pricier than its launch price in China, but at least you don’t have to ship it anymore. Also, it’s way cheaper than the AirPods.
