Huawei Watch 2 Classic review

 

A more basic version of the Huawei Watch 2

Android Wear 2.0 ; Attractive design

No LTE option ; Strange lack of crown

The Huawei Watch 2 Classic is a stylish wearable, and a tempting option if you want to get Android Wear 2.0 on your wrist, prefer a more formal look than the Watch 2 and aren’t looking for extensive fitness features.

Huawei Watch 2 Classic Review: Good watch but a missed opportunity for Wear 2.0

 

The Huawei Watch 2 Classic isn't a bad watch by any means, but it doesn't meet the lofty expectations set by the original model.

Stainless steel accents give it a premium feel. ; Battery life is impressive and can be stretched for weeks. ; The leather strap is equally good for working out and dining out.

Its bigger, thicker, and less elegant than its predecessor. ; No digital crown for scrolling. ; Too much fitness and not enough fashion.

With just a handful of watches that can claim they are built for Android Wear 2.0, the Huawei Watch 2 Classic doesn’t have a ton of competition. And with Moto and Asus reportedly abandoning the Wear platform, that doesn’t seem likely to change anytime...

Huawei Watch 2 Classic review: A rather surprising turn of events

 

Huawei's first generation Android watch was a gem and when I got my hands on the Huawei Watch 2 Classic, I was rather surprised.

Nicer design than I expected ; Build quality is amazing ; Improved charging puck ; Android Wear 2.0 ; Good fitness tracking ; Heart rate monitor

Some may find it pricey ; I do wish the steel portion around the watch face was thinner ; Call quality isn't the best

I was wrong. My first thought based on the look was that this watch was going to be a dog given how much I loved the first generation. This watch is really a stellar performer and it’s pretty damn good looking. It’s not the same design as the first gen...

The Huawei Watch 2 is a fine Android Wear 2.0 entry, but it doesn't bring enough to the table to separate it from its peers.

HUAWEI Watch 2 Classic - Grey

 

Upgraded from an iPhone to the Note 8 so my Apple Watch became redundant and needed to find a Android equivalent with the same feature set (GPS, NFC, Heart Rate monitor etc), that wasn't enormous and after watching video reviews settled on the Watch 2...

The reason it drop points for me is it doesn't feel as responsive at my old series 1 Apple Watch. Tilt to wake either takes longer sometimes or a few attempts. Also after a while the animations can get laggy and needs restarting, something I never had...

Technology: 10/10, Screen: 2/10, Design: 0/10

 

I'm so disappointed in this watch! I've had the Huawei Watch 1 for more than a year now and love it. However, this Huawei Watch 2 was appealing to me as it had NFC and GPS. However, the design is just horrible! It looks like a diver's watch and...

HUAWEI Watch 2 Classic - Grey

 

Good battery, 420 mAh does the job and it only needs a little while to charge. For example I can unplug it at 7:45am, wear it all day with lightweight usage, ambient display on, Sleep as Android over night and it's still on ~50% battery at 7:00am....

Classic version is way too expensive comparing to other Android Wear watches with similar specification available these days. Display is a bit too small with 1.2 inches. No rotating crown/bezel that could drastically improve UX with AW2.0.

Amazing watch!!

 

I brought this watch a couple of days ago and can't get enough of it... It looks like a normal watch.
