Huawei Watch 2 review

 

A well-equipped smartwatch with too many features

Built-in GPS and NFC ; Optional 4G model ; Feature-packed smartwatch

Screen a little too small ; Performance can be sluggish ; Design less premium than predecessor

Huawei tries to cover all use cases with the Watch 2, and while it hits most of them, it doesn't do it in a way which is overly user-friendly. If anything, it strengthens the case for specialized smartwatches, rather than a one-device-fits-all approach.

Huawei Watch 2 review: a decent Android Wear smartwatch that misses the mark with fitness tracking

 

With 4G, GPS, a barometer and heart-rate tracking the Watch 2 means you can leave your phone behind…

4G connectivity ; Lightweight and comfortable ; Decent battery life

No crown or bezel control ; Inaccurate fitness sensors ; Small screen, large bezel

Huawei Watch 2 review: A great smartwatch that's packed with tech

 

A smartwatch packed with sensors that looks good and has Android Wear 2 onboard. We like it

Decent battery life ; Packed with sensors ; Android Wear 2

Expensive ; Plastic strap looks nasty

The only fly in the ointment is the price. At £329 for the non-4G sports version, £379 for the 4G sports watch and £409 for the classic, it is a little pricey for a smartwatch.

Huawei Watch 2

 

The Huawei Watch 2 is the follow-up to 2015's Huawei Watch, and one of the first smartwatches to launch with Android Wear 2.0. Taking a leaf out of LG's book, the Watch 2 is available in two models.

Huawei Watch 2 Review: In Depth

 

Huawei Watch 2 Review: We've been wearing the Huawei Watch 2, one of the 1st Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches, for well over a week now. Here's what we think.

Sensor packed ; Water resistant ; Android Wear 2.0 ; Design choices

Cheap strap on standard model ; Occasional pause or stutter

The Watch 2 packs all of the hardware features you’d expect from a modern premium smartwatch, backed by Google’s ever-evolving and increasingly effective Android Wear OS. The standard strap might be a bit cheap and ugly, but that’s easily fixed and the...

Huawei Watch 2 review: Android Wear 2 makes this a great smartwatch

 

Stuffed with features and has Android Wear 2 onboard, but Huawei has taken a step backwards in design

The Huawei Watch 2 is an impressive smartwatch in many regards. It’s packed with the full array of sensors and features, offers fully functioning 4G connectivity, and if you don’t like the sporty looks, the toned-down Classic looks a touch more...

Apple Watch 2 vs Huawei Watch 2 comparison

 

The Apple Watch 2 is impressive but is it good enough to beat the new 4G-capable offering from Huawei?

The Huawei Watch is cheaper, but in many ways it should be as it lacks the style and sophistication of the Apple Watch. However, perhaps the addition of 4G makes up for all the other failings.

Huawei Watch 2 review: a fitness focus that falls flat

 

Huawei's latest smartwatch is a departure from the fashion-forward original

Very accurate heart rate monitor that works 24/7 ; Built-in GPS means you can run without your phone ; It’s not as bulky as sportier watches like the LG Watch Sport or the Garmin Fenix 5X ; Watch’s speaker produces surprisingly good audio quality

The screen is so small it makes text very hard to read, especially while moving ; Battery struggles to last 24 hours ; Not particularly attractive ; Plagued with lag, crashes, and random bugs
