Honor Philippines has been teasing the Honor Watch Magic since October 4. However, no price has been revealed just yet.
(Update, October 15: This smartwatch is priced at only P5,990 or about $160 today! Read Honor Watch Magic hands-on: Easy to recommend.)
But guess what we at Revü found today, October 9? While looking for the now-deleted post announcing that the Honor Play will be 50% off tomorrow (note: it’s back again at about 8:30 a.m.), we chanced upon this listing on Shopee Philippines.
The Honor Watch Magic is seen on the online retail site with a price tag of P7,490 (around $144). Unless that’s a placeholder amount, which we think it’s not, then the unit is P2,500 ($48) cheaper than the Huawei Watch GT. The latter, originally retailing at P12,990 ($250), is now selling for P9,990 ($192).
The Watch Magic is basically a Watch GT, only smaller and with a 7-day battery life instead of two weeks. Still, a week is long compared with those of most smartwatches currently on the market. You won’t have to charge it after a day or two, which may be a bit of a hassle.
Not surprising because the software is Huawei’s Lite OS, after all. The operating system is proprietary and optimized to deliver the longest battery life for the hardware it’s running on.

The Honor Watch Magic’s 42.8mm body — made of 316L stainless steel — is lightweight, which makes the smartwatch comfortable to use for long periods. Its shell is made of biodegradable nylon plastic. And the strap? With QuickFit, it can be easily changed.
The wearable has features for tracking location, real-time monitoring of heart rate, keeping tabs on outdoor and indoor activities such as mountain climbing and swimming, and analyzing sleeping habits. When it’s tethered to your smartphone, you can receive notifications of incoming calls and messages.
