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: 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 Sport review: New tricks and 4G's a hit

 

As a smartwatch that will deal well with sports, the Huawei Watch 2 is actually pretty good.

Wearability and solid design ; Android Wear functionality means phone-free control ; 4G option ; Two day battery life (on Wi-Fi only)

Strap is cheap in look and feel ; No rotational dial control ; Battery life on 4G ; Huawei Health app can be irksome

The Huawei Watch 2 is something of a surprise package: great for on-the-go independent control without a phone thanks to (optional) 4G, well built and full of top-spec hardware and features.

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 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 review: The best Android smartwatch now only £190

 

A smartwatch packed with sensors that looks good and has Android Wear 2 onboard – now even cheaper

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 LTE review

 

The Apple Watch Series 3 ( £399.00 at Apple ) offers 4G support, meaning you can receive calls, notifications and more without the use of your iPhone ( £699.00 at Apple ) . That's great -- if you have an iPhone. Android users are left without though,...

The Huawei Watch 2 is one of few watches that supports 4G connectivity, though not in the US, and does fitness tracking as well as any other wearable.

No features that make this a must-have device for the average user. It's also a little too big and bulky, and its 1.2-inch screen is too small.

Within the category of smartwatches, the Huawei Watch 2 is a great device. But that doesn't mean it's one you need to buy if you're not already sold on wearables.

Huawei Watch 2 review

 

Can the Huawei Watch 2 offer something different to a sea of other fitness-focused smartwatches on sale in 2017? Read our Huawei Watch 2 review and find out.

The Huawei Watch 2 is no-doubt a huge improvement over the first-generation Huawei Watch despite trading in the classic look for something a little sportier. The double-chrome design gives it a premium look, although it’s let down a little bit by...

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: A solid Android Wear 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...
