The Huawei Watch 2 will be unveiled at Barcelona’s MWC which is taking place from February 27 to March 2.
According to Techradar the Huawei CEO, Richard Yu has confirmed the Huawei Watch 2 will make an appearance at MWC 2017.
It looks like Huawei are spotlighting fitness as the main theme for their new smartwatch. Fitness wearables are leading the way, and the Apple Watch 2 has a sporty theme, but the reason the original Huawei Watch is popular has nothing to do with fitness, more its classy looks. So have Huawei really got their thinking cap on and listening to the reason people bought their first Watch? Or are they just following suit with the likes of Apple and the fitness thing? I think the latter.
Below is the original Huawei Watch.. No images have so far emerged showing the Watch 2..
Only rumors have so far emerged about the new watch’s Specs. They say it will likely sport the same size 1.4-inch circular display as the original, but almost certainly with a higher resolution. They also say it will use a Snapdragon 400 CPU and offer 512MB RAM and 4GB storage – the same as the first Watch.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the CPU is the Snapdragon Wear 2100, as it’s smaller, newer, more power-efficient, enables richer algorithms and one version supports LTE. There are rumors that a Huawei Watch 2 with LTE will also be unveiled, so it makes sense to be using the Snapdragon Wear 2100.
According to the rumors, the 300mAh battery capacity hasn’t changed either. I would also be surprised if this is the case, certainly for an LTE version.
There’s no mention of a heart rate monitor or built-in GPS.. We’ll know in a couple of weeks.
The original Huawei Watch ran the Android Wear OS, and considering the LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style recently launched with Android Wear 2.0, it’s sensible to assume it will also be onboard the Huawei Watch 2.
No word on the price or release date, so far.
