Huawei's Watch 2 can last for weeks without its smarts

 

This Android Wear 2 device is one of the most comfortable yet.

Huawei Watch 2 review

 

Huawei's Watch 2 Sport gives you everything you need from a smartwatch, including mobile payments and GPS.

Android Wear 2.0 is polished ; Watch Mode offers 25-day battery life ; Comfortable and lightweight ; Offers array of sensors ; Removable bands

Screen is too small ; No rotating crown ; Occasional long load times

Huawei’s Watch 2 Sport is the best Android Wear watch so far. It offers everything you may need from a smartwatch, such as actionable notifications, 4GB of storage for offline music playback, GPS, NFC for Android Pay, Google Assistant, and direct...

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.

MWC 2017: Huawei P10, P10 Plus, Watch 2 hands-on

 

Today was a big day for Huawei at the MWC expo in Barcelona. The company announced its new flagships - the P10 and P10 Plus, both featuring Leica lens on the rear and front cameras. Then we saw two new Watch 2 smartwatches to make an appearance. And...

Huawei Watch 2 LTE review

 

The Apple Watch Series 3 ( $429.00 at Apple ) offers 4G support, meaning you can receive calls, notifications and more without the use of your iPhone ( $849.00 at Apple ) . That's great -- if you have an iPhone. Android users are left without though,...

The Huawei Watch 2 is one of few watches that supports 4G connectivity, though not in the US, and does fitness tracking as well as any other wearable.

No features that make this a must-have device for the average user. It's also a little too big and bulky, and its 1.2-inch screen is too small.

Within the category of smartwatches, the Huawei Watch 2 is a great device. But that doesn't mean it's one you need to buy if you're not already sold on wearables.

Huawei Watch 2 review: a fitness focus that falls flat

 

Huawei's latest smartwatch is a departure from the fashion-forward original

Very accurate heart rate monitor that works 24/7 ; Built-in GPS means you can run without your phone ; It’s not as bulky as sportier watches like the LG Watch Sport or the Garmin Fenix 5X ; Watch’s speaker produces surprisingly good audio quality

The screen is so small it makes text very hard to read, especially while moving ; Battery struggles to last 24 hours ; Not particularly attractive ; Plagued with lag, crashes, and random bugs

Huawei Watch 2 Classic Review: Good watch but a missed opportunity for Wear 2.0

 

The Huawei Watch 2 Classic isn't a bad watch by any means, but it doesn't meet the lofty expectations set by the original model.

Stainless steel accents give it a premium feel. ; Battery life is impressive and can be stretched for weeks. ; The leather strap is equally good for working out and dining out.

Its bigger, thicker, and less elegant than its predecessor. ; No digital crown for scrolling. ; Too much fitness and not enough fashion.

With just a handful of watches that can claim they are built for Android Wear 2.0, the Huawei Watch 2 Classic doesn’t have a ton of competition. And with Moto and Asus reportedly abandoning the Wear platform, that doesn’t seem likely to change anytime...

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 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 Sport review: New tricks and 4G's a hit

 

As a smartwatch that will deal well with sports, the Huawei Watch 2 is actually pretty good.

Wearability and solid design ; Android Wear functionality means phone-free control ; 4G option ; Two day battery life (on Wi-Fi only)

Strap is cheap in look and feel ; No rotational dial control ; Battery life on 4G ; Huawei Health app can be irksome

The Huawei Watch 2 is something of a surprise package: great for on-the-go independent control without a phone thanks to (optional) 4G, well built and full of top-spec hardware and features.
