Huawei Watch 2 Classic now available for U.S. consumers. This is one of the watches I have had my eye on this year. The LG Sport had my attention for a little while, but since it was sold out most of the time, big and bulky, and quite expensive, I quickly lost interest. The Huawei Watch last year was my most worn watch, which naturally excites me to look forward to the next generation. The sporty design however did not excite me much, as I like the classic look more. Good news now is the Huawei Watch 2 Classic now available. Details below.
Huawei Watch 2 Classic
The Huawei Watch 2 Classic is the watch that bridges the gap between fitness watches and classic designed watches. Most of the time I am wearing a watch throughout the day and like the fitness tracking features smartwatches offer. Being that I am the type of person who is not going to wear a different watch throughout the day and when I am taking part of activities, the Huawei Watch 2 Classic comes with a sweat resistant hybrid leather/rubber band. No worries of ruining a band.
Huawei Watch 2 Classic Press Release
Huawei is setting a new standard for premium watch adaptability. The company announced today that the second model in its second-generation smartwatch line, HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC, is now available in the U.S.
What separates HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC from other premium smartwatches is the ease with which it fits in, no matter the occasion. The sweat resistant hybrid leather/rubber band is fashionable enough for a business meeting, and functional enough for the gym, ensuring comfort throughout the day.
“We specifically designed HUAWEI WATCH 2 to feature cutting-edge technology while being stylish,” commented Robin Zhu, President of Huawei Device USA. “Now, with the introduction of HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC, we have added versatility to the mix and offering consumers a watch that is equally suited to professional and recreational settings.”
HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC features a stainless steel casing and ceramic bezel with a classic watch aesthetic. It has a high-definition AMOLED display with a 390×390 resolution, and a 45-mm (1.8”) diameter and ratio, the same as a traditional wristwatch. Thoughtful details such as the dual-crown design and highly integrated antennae (GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth) make it practical and premium.
In addition to its versatility and adaptability, HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC integrates fitness guidance and scientific health-management functions to help consumers proactively improve their lifestyles. It provides consumers with all of the tools they need for connected well-being.
HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC measures daily activities through three key indicators: number of steps, duration of medium and high-intensity exercise, and stand-up times. It closely monitors the user’s activity and sends smart reminders to stand up or begin exercising, and will remind users of their daily fitness targets when sedentary.

- Android Wear 2.0 and is iOS compatible
- Updates to Google wearables OS are available, including Google Assistant
- Ability to add both offline and online music through Google Play™ Music app
