Huawei Watch 2 review

 

A well-equipped smartwatch with too many features

Built-in GPS and NFC ; Optional 4G model ; Feature-packed smartwatch

Screen a little too small ; Performance can be sluggish ; Design less premium than predecessor

Huawei tries to cover all use cases with the Watch 2, and while it hits most of them, it doesn't do it in a way which is overly user-friendly. If anything, it strengthens the case for specialized smartwatches, rather than a one-device-fits-all approach.

Huawei Watch 2 review: a decent Android Wear smartwatch that misses the mark with fitness tracking

 

With 4G, GPS, a barometer and heart-rate tracking the Watch 2 means you can leave your phone behind…

4G connectivity ; Lightweight and comfortable ; Decent battery life

No crown or bezel control ; Inaccurate fitness sensors ; Small screen, large bezel

Huawei Watch 2

 

The Huawei Watch 2 features excellent fitness tracking capabilities and is the strongest showcase for Android Wear 2.0 we've seen so far, but that still doesn't make it a perfect smartwatch.

Continuous heart rate monitoring. Built-in GPS and Android Pay compatibility. Accurate step and distance tracking. Good battery life.

Strap feels chintzy and isn't easy to swap out. Difficult to keep track of long-term fitness progress. Wi-Fi can be finicky.

And yet we can't recommend the Huawei Watch 2 unequivocally. Android Wear lags behind watchOS in the app department and it just isn't intuitive to use. And the watch itself is big and bulky, limiting your abilities for all-day wear. So while the Huawei...

Huawei Watch 2 review: A great smartwatch that's packed with tech

 

A smartwatch packed with sensors that looks good and has Android Wear 2 onboard. We like it

Decent battery life ; Packed with sensors ; Android Wear 2

Expensive ; Plastic strap looks nasty

The only fly in the ointment is the price. At £329 for the non-4G sports version, £379 for the 4G sports watch and £409 for the classic, it is a little pricey for a smartwatch.

Huawei Watch 2

 

The Huawei Watch 2 is the follow-up to 2015's Huawei Watch, and one of the first smartwatches to launch with Android Wear 2.0. Taking a leaf out of LG's book, the Watch 2 is available in two models.

Huawei Watch 2: A powerful fitness-focused Android Wear smartwatch

 

Last year I had a chance to try out the Huawei Watch and it ended up being arguably the best Android Wear smartwatch of 2016. That original Huawei Watch was a fashion watch with steel and leather band options with a refined design.

Lightweight comfortable design ; Accurate GPS and activity tracker ; Clear and crisp color display ; Android Wear 2.0 with Android Pay support ; IP68 dust and water resistance ; Solid battery life

Bezel makes it difficult to tap on screen ; Limited band options

Huawei Watch 2 Review: In Depth

 

Huawei Watch 2 Review: We've been wearing the Huawei Watch 2, one of the 1st Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches, for well over a week now. Here's what we think.

Sensor packed ; Water resistant ; Android Wear 2.0 ; Design choices

Cheap strap on standard model ; Occasional pause or stutter

The Watch 2 packs all of the hardware features you’d expect from a modern premium smartwatch, backed by Google’s ever-evolving and increasingly effective Android Wear OS. The standard strap might be a bit cheap and ugly, but that’s easily fixed and the...

Huawei Watch 2 Review

 

Smartwatches are a tough task to get right for most manufacturers. Unlike smartphones, style is just as important as functionality and with everyone having completely different preferences in that regard, every device in the smartwatch market caters to...

Comfortable to wear ; Smooth user experience ; Compatible with standard 20 mm bands

Uninspiring design ; Lack of rotating bezel or crown, making for a constantly dirty display ; Android Wear 2.0 is still a little rough around the edges

A solid device, with a solid price tag.
