Not too long ago I reviewed the Huawei Watch 2 Classic and was actually very impressed. I initially thought Huawei may have screwed up with the new design, but I was wrong. The Huawei Watch 2 Carbon Black isn’t far off from the Classic and if you’ve been waiting to get one, now may be the time. You can currently snag the Huawei Watch 2 Carbon Black on Amazon for just under $182USD. That’s pretty awesome considering the retail price is $299.99USD. You can read an excerpt of my review below and read the entirety of the review here.
This thing is a very great performer. It’s responsive and Android Wear 2.0 runs great on it. The battery life is super awesome and better than many other Android watches. The heart rate sensor and fitness tracking are spot on. Those can be synced with Google Fit or you can use Huawei’s fitness app if you have a Huawei phone. I tested the heart rate sensor side by side against the Apple Watch and they both gave the same data so I am confident Huawei made some quality stuff here.
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 and in some ways, I miss that. At the end of the day though, it is a great looking design… and sometimes change is a good thing.
This price is really a great deal, I don’t think you can go wrong with this watch at this price.
