Huawei’s second-generation Android Wear smartwatch is now available for purchase in the US. The Huawei Watch 2 comes in black or grey and sells for $299.99. A slightly different model, the Huawei Watch 2 Classic, will soon be available for $369.99.
Huawei’s focus for this watch is notably different from the polished, fashion-forward approach for its first version. The new watch is much chunkier and larger than the prior model, but has a distinct focus on fitness tracking features. As a result, it includes dedicated GPS for tracking runs and comes with extra software for tracking workouts. The Huawei Watch 2 also includes NFC for Android Pay.
The US release does not include the LTE-equipped version of the Watch 2 that Huawei demonstrated at Mobile World Congress earlier this year, but the company says it is currently in talks with carriers about releasing the connected version here.
The Huawei Watch 2 works with both iOS and Android and can be purchased at Best Buy, Amazon, and other retailers.america latina, android, Android wear, app, business, caribbean, caribe, EMPRESAS, globalmediait, hardware, Huawei, Huawei’s second-generation, internet, latam, latin america, latinoamerica, miami, mobility, news, NOTICIAS, NOTICIAS TECNOLOGIA, smartwatch, software, technology, technology news, technology news caribbean, tecnologia
