When Evan Blass leaked the Huawei Watch 2, he never mentioned the Huawei Watch 2 Classic in his post. I speculated and hoped there would be another Huawei Watch version announced which led some of our readers to be confused. We re-worded our initial article to clarify but of course, some people still had to throw a jab in at us. While Evan Blass hadn’t said anything about a Huawei Watch 2 Classic and we didn’t have any knowledge of one actually being announced, the long and short of it is that Huawei did indeed announce two new watches at Mobile World Congress and we couldn’t be happier. Check out the specifications and features list below for both watches.

Huawei’s first watch has been highly acclaimed as one of the best Android Wear watches on the market. We’re glad to see that Huawei has added the sportier version to the lineup for those who may need such a beast — and are even happier they kept the classic version alive.
Both versions come with Android Wear 2.0 out of the box along with Google Assistant to boot. xda-developers reports that the user interface is much more streamlined and easier to use with darker backgrounds, but even more importantly (for some) the addition of Android Pay is here. All the other usual bits and pieces are there as well such as IP68 rated, heart-rate monitor, fitness tracking and more. The sportier version takes into mind those who may want to use this as a more rugged device while the Classic is just that, classic and true to the original watch Huawei created.
