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...

Your Apple Watch 3 alternative

 

It's got everything you'd expect from a smartwatch, including cellular connectivity -- if smartwatches are your thing.

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

 

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

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's Android Wear watch lasts 25 days, costs at least $300

 

The Huawei Watch 2 has a special low-power mode that can display the time and track steps for nearly a month on a single charge.

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.

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: Why?

 

In the world of technology, it's rare that a successor product is actually worse than the one that preceded it. Today is a rare day. The Huawei Watch 2 is

Display ; It's bright enough and it has an ambient light sensor. ; Android Pay ; It's here and it works. ; GPS, LTE, PPG, NFC ; All the acronyms! The Watch 2 has LTE in the non-Classic variant I'm using here, along with GPS, a heart-rate sensor, and...

Looks ; I realize this is subjective, but I've yet to speak to anyone who had anything nice to say about how the Huawei Watch 2 looks. It is generic men's sports chronograph ; in the extreme. ; Feels cheap ; Between the plastic body, comical bezel, and...

The Huawei Watch 2 has proven an uncommonly hard thing to like. While it ticks all the boxes for a modern Android Wear device (well, most - the rotating crown would have been nice), Huawei has executed the product in a way that just defies common...
