The original Huawei Watch was one of the best looking and best functioning Android Wear offerings on the market, now take a look at the new sportier looking Huawei Watch 2. Mobile World Congress is just days away and Huawei is expected to announce their P10 and P10 Plus Android smartphones but according to Evan Blass, they’ll be announcing other things as well. Namely the more rugged looking Huawei Watch 2. Evan Blass was able to get photos of the device and it’s looking much like the original Huawei Watch but a bit beefier and obviously “sporty.”
The new Huawei Watch 2 is said to have a nano-SIM which will give the watch cellular capabilities meaning you won’t need your phone to use some of its functions. The looks of the new version hearken to the Casio sport watches many used in the 80’s and 90’s. Casio itself has its own sport smartwatches on the market they announced at CES 2017.
Motorola tried their hand at a sport version of their Moto 360 and the one complaint many had with the 360 was the flat tire. Huawei has managed to stay away from the flat tire in the previous models and it looks like the current version does the same. This gives the user a full circular display and looks aesthetically better than having that area of missing pixels.
This version of the new Huawei Watch should certainly have its market, but I’m more interested in the possibility of a regular Huawei Watch 2. Excited to see what kind of improvements, if any, Huawei has made to the original watch as that watch was pretty solid, though no indication of a non-sporty edition exists quite yet. One thing I did notice is that they seem to have kept the same pin charging connector method they had on the first watch and that was the thing I disliked the most about that watch.
What do you think of the new design?
