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 Classic review: A rather surprising turn of events

 

Huawei's first generation Android watch was a gem and when I got my hands on the Huawei Watch 2 Classic, I was rather surprised.

Nicer design than I expected ; Build quality is amazing ; Improved charging puck ; Android Wear 2.0 ; Good fitness tracking ; Heart rate monitor

Some may find it pricey ; I do wish the steel portion around the watch face was thinner ; Call quality isn't the best

I was wrong. My first thought based on the look was that this watch was going to be a dog given how much I loved the first generation. This watch is really a stellar performer and it’s pretty damn good looking. It’s not the same design as the first gen...

The Huawei Watch 2 is a fine Android Wear 2.0 entry, but it doesn't bring enough to the table to separate it from its peers.

Huawei Watch 2 review

 

While the Huawei Watch 2 is a wonderful showcase of all the new features and capabilities of Android Wear 2.0 and its particular focus on fitness, the new direction this has resulted in will be disappointing for those who are fans of the elegant...

AMOLED display is great, helps with battery life ; Two-day battery life ; Watch Mode further saves battery ; Nearly all new Wear 2.0 features leveraged well

Lack of an extra navigation method (rotating side button) ; Design needlessly sporty ; Watch strap feels cheap

Huawei Watch 2 Classic review

 

A more basic version of the Huawei Watch 2

Android Wear 2.0 ; Attractive design

No LTE option ; Strange lack of crown

The Huawei Watch 2 Classic is a stylish wearable, and a tempting option if you want to get Android Wear 2.0 on your wrist, prefer a more formal look than the Watch 2 and aren’t looking for extensive fitness features.

Huawei Watch 2 Classic

 

Great design, really premium look and feel. Really well built.

Can freeze, takes a while to register you moving your hand to look at the time. Very expensive for the specs.

Not having to carry my phone around the house / garden all the time now. My phone is normally left on vibrate and I was always missing the vibration in my pocket, not anymore as my wrist now vibrates and shows me a quick notification. Lighter than my...

Battery is a bit of a let down but have learnt to turn off WiFi which gives an extra half day battery easily.

HUAWEI Watch 2 Classic - Grey

 

Upgraded from an iPhone to the Note 8 so my Apple Watch became redundant and needed to find a Android equivalent with the same feature set (GPS, NFC, Heart Rate monitor etc), that wasn't enormous and after watching video reviews settled on the Watch 2...

The reason it drop points for me is it doesn't feel as responsive at my old series 1 Apple Watch. Tilt to wake either takes longer sometimes or a few attempts. Also after a while the animations can get laggy and needs restarting, something I never had...
