Huawei Announces Watch 2 & Watch 2 Classic Smartwatches with Android Wear 2.0



As expected, Huawei officially announced the Huawei Watch 2 and Watch 2 Classic smartwatches alongside the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus smartphones launches. A few days before, the first look of the Watch 2 was revealed by the leaked press renders. Today, the company launched the Huawei Watch and the Watch 2 Classic on the lines of LG Watch Sport and Watch Style. Unlike the new LG smartwatches, the two variants of the Huawei Watch 2 shares quite a few specifications. Both the smartwatches come powered by Android Wear 2.0 OS. While the Watch 2 Classic shares same design language as its successor, the Watch 2 comes with a sportier look with silicone straps.

On the top is the 1.2-inch circular AMOLED display offering 390 x 390 pixels resolution with a pixel density of 326ppi. The company also offers Gorilla Glass 3 for the display. They come powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor which is specially designed for the wearables. Both the smartwatches are backed by 420mAh batteries. The watches come with 45mm dial which 3mm larger than what we see regularly. The Huawei Watch 2 and Watch 2 Classic packing 768MB of RAM & 4GB of internal storage might be good enough even if you like to use without pairing with your smartphones.

It is IP68 certifications which mean both the smartwatches are water and dust resistant. The watches come in two variants – 4G LTE & Wi-Fi only. With the Android Wear 2.0, the user can pair these smartwatches with Android and iOS smartphones. There is also heart rate sensor on the back of the watch dial. With the NFC support, the new Watch 2 can be used for making mobile payments via Android Pay and Huawei Pay (limited t0 China). Huawei is also offering a low-power mode that displays only the time and track steps for up to 25 days on a single charge.

The Huawei Watch 2 and Watch 2 Classic smartwatches will be on sale starting in March for €329 (approx $350 / Rs. 23,200). It will first go on sale in Spain, France, Portugal, Italy, Germany, and China, while the U.S., UK, Russia and Australia will get the new smartwatches in the month of April. In between, there is also a Porsche Design Huawei Smartwatch, which will be designed in partnership with Porsche.
