Huawei has just unveiled its second-generation smartwatch, this time offering two different variants - Watch 2 and Watch 2 Classic. They have the same hardware under the hood, but the Classic comes with a more traditional design and a leather band, while its sibling has a bigger bezel and a rubber band.

This new smartwatch runs Android Wear 2.0 out of the box and is powered by a 1.1 GHz Qualcomm processor, next to 768 MB RAM and 4 GB internal storage. The 1.2-inch AMOLED circular display is protected using Corning Gorilla Glass and offers 390X390 pixels. The list of sensors and connectivity features includes GPS, Bluetooth 4.1, three-axis compass and gyro, a heart rate sensor, an ambient light sensor, NFC, 4G LTE (depending on version), WiFi, and more. The 420 mAh battery promises up to two days of autonomy in regular mode, 10 hours in training mode, and an impressive three weeks in watch mode.

The first markets to receive the new Huawei smartwatch are Spain, France, Portugal, Italy, Germany, and China. Shipments are scheduled to start in March, and the price will be around $350 USD. The US, UK, and many other areas are expected to receive the Huawei Watch 2 one month later, while Malaysia will follow in May.

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.
