    Honestly the Watchbuds are so cool. I hope the buds improve and maybe the unit as a whole gets a little smaller, but honestly I feel like pulling headphones out of your watch is going to make you feel like James Bond and that kinda makes up for the substandard audio quality. I'd definitely get one if they make an improved 2.0

    Some of the experiential features of that robot are actually really cool, the way it turns and faces you may seem uninteresting but that goes a long way with your enjoyment of the product. The bot staring at you with a blank expression and no cues when it doesn't understand you is the most Bezos-made product function ever.

    • Kevin Penfold

      I honestly love that blank stare feature. It’s kinda how communicating with a human is. I hate it when my Google home or alexa doesn’t understand me and then it goes on a long run-on sentence explaining how it didn’t understand and why and what it actually will understand and what not.

    • Stuart Philp

    Huawei reminds me of Sega, always pushing tech forward by thinking outside the box and not worrying about failing. Unfortunately that's how we lose these types of companies who take risks while Apple sits back and lets people beta test the tech and then they "revolutionize" the idea and say they are the worlds first. I expect Apple copying this idea in about 5 years or so. Its really dope and amazing. I actually might have to buy these just to show my support.

      @Vincent Garcia I just explained why the purpose of simply existing would be enough for alot of people. Also our phones already collect literally everything, even the mic is collecting data all the time, if the government or any other organization wants to know about you there already enough data that they'll know more about you than you know yourself. So adding another one won't change anything at this point.

    I love the robot's design, I really hope those designers/engineers get to work on more stuff like that. I've always loved stylized optimized robot designed compared to humanoid robots or ones trying to mimic something familiar instead of being designed optimally for its task. The facial animations are also brilliant, but it seems like they couldn't finish all the different expressions they would've liked for a really friendly UX.
    I wonder how a good conversational AI like ChatGPT would work in a robot like Astro. Amazon is probably working on their own though.

    Gotta love and appreciate the underappreciated self-orienting feature of the earbuds. Not only are these easy to use from a user's perspective, but also from the manufacturer's viewpoint, these earbuds are easy to build. Meaning you only need a single die, with a single kind electronics layout and can be sold in single units too.

      ​@Lord Mango not just being able to buy one but not needing to try and convey that they lost the left or right. It happens more often than you think someone needs a replacement, they are asked if they lost left or right, they get the wrong earpiece (usually due to miscommunication).

    I thought the same thing about 2-in1s until I got a used surface laptop off ebay for 200 bucks. It was still like new and somehow combined everything I wanted in a laptop, mainly a 13 inch screen that could detach as a standalone tablet while still working on my lap unlike the regular surfaces with the flimsy keyboards and active stylus support, then added in an extended battery and dedicated gpu in the keyboard for what's basically chump change in the laptop world. Also I refuse to give up my original huawei watch because it looks so good in the black with the black metal clasp band and a classic looking black and white face from facer. Still get compliments on that thing all the time.

    the watchbuds seem like a product thatll definitely get better with a second gen. better sound quality, lighter build, lower price. its definitely a product for people who are more minimalist with what they carry. you take your backpack everywhere with headphones and chargers and everything, but for someone who only carries a wallet, phone, keys, maybe a water bottle if theyre gonna be out for a while, this is definitely a great product for them

      And for me personally I don't like the rubber wings that would be the only good fix

      @TreesPlease42 That could help with the fit, but I don't think they could be symmetrical with wings. Maybe symmetrical wings are possible, but that seems uncomfortable to me.

    Interesting concepts.
    I am most intrigued by the _Huawei Watch Buds_ . I was sure the watch would be the limited part of the 2-in-1 since it's bulkier and doesnt fit as much tech inside but if the buds are the part that suffers from more compromise I am sure it is feasable to have premium buds in there as well since those don't have to suffer the compromise: They are already tiny, have the ANC on board and have wireless charging to begin with.

    For once I got them before any UAclipsr reviewed them and I love it! Impressive, what Huawei can pack into those tiny buds. The big plus is you don't have to carry an additional case for the buds with you. I got the AiPower Wearbuds before, but as cool as they are, the whole Fitband-shaped watch is too thick for my whrist, so that's why these Huawei are a step closer to minimization.
    How is a bottle supposed to get into the holder of that Amazon Astra, if not someine puts it in there?!?!
    Well, normal rollerblades do also expand your movement without too much weight and noise. You're telling me, the feeling I have on those flat rolling stairs is worth 1400?

    I've tried those shoes and they're surprisingly easy to use, but yeah the energy spent with weight and balancing makes it not that worth it. Also something that's hard to convey in videos is just how loud and clunky they are. If you're not walking on solid concrete you are going to be shaking the floor lol. Though you can do crossovers with them like ice skates when cornering at high speeds which is fun.

    Those buds are such a good idea. I go no my lunch break, I often call people at that time and as I head out I have to remember my pixel buds - I don't actually need them to be great quality (I guess that will come with v2, 3). That the battery life on the watch beats anything by Samsung is also very, very compelling. Bravo.

    Being a Huawei enthusiast glad to see a review of the same on your channel again. Gotta appreciate their thinking and I always admire them for bringing something new and how much they put into their R&D each year. I've seen your short clip before and anticipated it might be thick. Then, later tried myself at a Huawei store and it's crazy how they pulled this off considering it's thickness which is not bad at all, considering all other ultra watches in the market now. They should move forward with this one and pretty sure they can develop and make it even more better in the next gen. particularly headphones.

    I think part of the appeal of that watch bud is that you can charge your watch and your buds case (in this case is the watch itself) at the same time... I use airpods and apple watch, I need a puck for the watch, a charger for my phone and airpods case each.. sometimes its pretty inconvenient especially if all 3 need charging at the same time

    I think the moonwalkers will be mostly used for warehouse or factory floor or airport workers. People that move around large, flat spaces with few obstacles. It's clearly not a consumer product like hover or boosted boards.

    So the cool thing about those fancy rollerskates is they are closer to an augmentation than the skateboard and the hoverboard: they're like something you would wear everyday, but supercharged. That type of wearable tech fascinates me more than anything. I get the same vibe from truly wireless earbuds with ANC and a transparency mode: you can keep them in your ears all day, and they act like an enhancement instead of an object that you pull out and employ for a particular purpose, like a hoverboard. So my recommendation would be an episode where you focus in on wearable all-day tech that shows promise. The latest in augmented reality? Smartwatches that serve a unique purpose? MIT has a shirt with vital sign sensors woven into it. Hell there has to be some dental tech out there, am I right?

    The Watch Buds is a cool concept, specifically as a phone replacement. I pretty much always have my iPhone and AirPods and AppleWatch on me. I am moving toward just AppleWatchUltra w/cellular and AirPods and leaving the iPhone behind whenever possible. The idea of further pairing it down to a single device that is both watch and buds, is pretty compelling.
    Biggest thing you are missing is a Camera, but we went a LONG time without decent phone cameras, so maybe its okay to go without one sometimes.

    Hah. The Amazon robot is c=kind of cool and totally pointless. Fun to play with but not to buy. I can definietly see some of the tech being rolled into other products - robotic vacuums, mobile video chat/comms devices, security camera's/monitors etc. Be cool to be able to send Astro off to tell the kids Dinners ready or pass them a message. And the big wide eye's and on screen messages are a clever way to communicate.
    The watch/buds is actually really awesome. I' a huge fan of teh Smart Glasses like Echo or Bose Frames and the idea of combining something you always have with you (glasses or a watch) with something you randomly need access to at short notice, is really helpful. Until we get proper AR screens in Smart glasses, the idea of having a pair of hidden earbuds for when yo need them? Cool.
    As for the morotised roller skates? Yeah, thats just weird. Had to pause the video to try and work out where the weird whistling was coming from. Nope!!

    The robot sounds like a great idea for an elderly person in a retirement home. It can "keep the person company" and In case the person falls and can't get up (as it oftne happens in retirement homes) it can call out for help.
