Huawei Watch 2 and Watch 2 Classic Unveiled Running Android Wear 2.0

In addition to the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus, Huawei also launched the successor to the Huawei Watch: the Huawei Watch 2 and Watch 2 Classic. The two different variants of the smartwatch offer widely different features and cater to a wider range of consumers.

The normal Huawei Watch 2 is more sporty in nature and sports a 1.2-inch 390×390 resolution circular display. Its display is surrounded by a fair bit of bezels which Huawei is calling Dual Crown design, and it will be available with rubberised sport bands in different colors.

The Huawei Watch 2 Classic sports a more traditional watch-like design. It also comes with a 1.2-inch 390×390 resolution display albeit with lesser bezels covering it. The watch will come with a leather strap.

Both watches otherwise sport the same set of internals: 420mAh battery, 768MB RAM, 4GB storage, GPS, NFC for Android Pay, IP68 certification, training coach, and heart rate sensor. The Huawei Watch 2 will be available with 4G connectivity with nanoSIM and eSIM support. At 57g, the Huawei Watch 2 is the lightest smartwatch with 4G LTE connectivity.

The smartwatches will be running on Android Wear 2.0 out of the box. The Huawei Watch and Watch 2 Classic will be available in Spain, France, Italy, China, and Germany in March for €329. The smartwatches will then make their debut in US, Russia, UK, and Australia in April.
