Huawei has launched the next generation of its smartwatch, the Huawei Watch 2, at the ongoing MWC 2017 in Barcelona, Spain today. The smartwatch is offered in two variants, a regular and a classic variant. While the regular variant has a sportier and a more rugged look with curved straps, the classic variant has a more traditional look and comes in a stainless steel build.
In terms of features though, Huawei’s latest smartwatch has loads to offer. As leaked earlier, the Huawei Watch 2 comes with cellular connectivity, and Android Wear 2.0 OS. For mobile connectivity, the smartwatch has a dedicated Nano-SIM card slot to make and receive the calls. This removes dependence on a phone for making calls.
The smartwatch will feature a 1.2-inch 390x390p display with Gorilla Glass 3 on top of it. Underneath, it has a 1.1GHz Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset with 768MB of RAM with 4GB storage. It comes equipped with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, NFC and LTE support. It also comes with several fitness apps, and can monitor the user’s heart rate through its optical heart rate sensor.
The company claims that the 4G variant (which is being released internationally) of the smartwatch can last for two days on full charge. The smartwatch has a 420mAh battery inside.
In terms of its features, Huawei’s Watch 2 competes with the LG Watch Sport. The company hasn’t disclosed either the pricing or the availability as of now. Alongside the smartwatches, the company also unveiled the P10 and the P10 Plus smartphones at MWC today.[Source: Venturebeat]
