Huawei Watch 2, Watch 2 Classic announced at MWC

Huawei announced two new Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches during MWC 2017 in Barcelona on Sunday. That includes the new Huawei Watch 2 and the Huawei Watch 2 Classic.

The watches both offer similar specs, though look pretty drastically different. The Watch 2 is the sportier model that leaked a few days ago, while the Watch 2 Classic tries to look like a more traditional smartwatch.

LG tried a similar strategy with the Watch Sport and Watch Style, though cut some features from the latter. Huawei is using a 1.2-inch display, GPS, a heart rate sensor and support for Android Pay in both models. The Huawei Watch 2 supports LTE connectivity, too, though Huawei didn’t announce carrier partners yet.

Huawei said the devices will go on sale starting at 329 euros ($347) in March, starting in Spain, France, Portugal, Italy, Germany and China. It will also launch in the UK, Russia, United States and Australia in April.
