The Huawei Watch 2 Pro came out of the blue and, for now, it is only available in China. This round Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch features an eSIM slot and is IP68-certified for protection from the elements.

The Huawei Watch 2 smartwatch arrived together with the Watch 2 Classic earlier this year, next to the P10 flagship. Now, without any official teasers and without being mentioned by any rumors or leaks, the Huawei Watch 2 Pro is official and can be already pre-ordered in China.

This Android Wear 2.0-driven round smartwatch that was silently introduced by Huawei seems to be made for the Chinese market since the firmware it runs appears to be a stripped down version of the original software package by Google. The Huawei Watch 2 Pro has a 1.2-inch round AMOLED display with a resolution of 390 x 390 pixels that is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass layer. On the inside, this smartwatch has an eSIM slot for 4G/3G/2G connectivity, and it features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 processor, 768 MB RAM, and 4 GB internal storage. The 420 mAh battery provides about one day of autonomy when connected to a 4G network.

The new Huawei smartwatch is IP68 certified for protection from water and dust, so no worries here. Thanks to its support for NFC, the Huawei Watch 2 Pro allows its users to use contactless payment services such as Huawei Pay, AliPay, and WeChat Pay.

Those interested can already acquired the Watch 2 Pro for the equivalent of around US$390 via Huawei's online store vMall, JD.com, and other Chinese retailers. Unfortunately, there is no information about an international launch yet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
