The Huawei Watch 2 is now available for purchase in the US. The new wearable, based on Android Wear 2.0, costs $299 and comes in two colors: black and gray.

Unlike many other smartwatches, which focus on sleek and stylish designs, the Huawei Watch 2 goes for a traditional sports watch look. It features a 1.2-inch AMOLED display, powered by a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor and 768 MB of RAM. The watch includes 4 GB of storage, enough to store apps and music.

Because it runs the latest version of Android Wear, the Huawei Watch 2 supports installing apps directly to the device and streaming music. It features improved texting, calling, and notifications. In addition, the watch has a GPS that can be used to track runs; it also comes with a suite of general fitness-tracking software. The Huawei Watch 2 can be used with Android and iOS devices.

For a limited time, Huawei is giving away a 10-week subscription to Google Play Music to Watch 2 buyers. The wearable can be purchased at various retailers starting today; a Classic edition of the Watch 2 should be available in the near future.

I started my journey in tech journalism as a writer for a mobile games website.
