Learn About Huawei Smartwatch 2
What is new about Huawei’s second generation smartwatch? What are its specifications? Will it be able to compete against Samsung Gear and Apple watch?
The competition in the smartphone industry is no longer restricted on the American Company Apple and South Korean Samsung especially during 2016. Huawei was able to prove that they are a strong competitor after they released high specifications phones.
And with the crisis Samsung faced during the last quarter of 2016 with the explosion of Galaxy Note 7’s battery which caused them huge financial losses after withdrawing them from the market, Huawei is seeking to take Samsung’s position on the list.
After announcing Huawei P10, Huawei unveiled their new second generation smartwatch in two different models: one with a classical design while the second has a more modern design. Below we will list their specifications.
Specifications of Huawei Watch 2
Despite the different colors of Huawei smartwatch 2, they all have a hip and modern design. It is a round watch with three different colors for the hand strap: grey, orange, and black, with orange being the color Huawei choose as a main color.
The watch is covered in plastic and has a diameter of 45 millimeters (4.5 centimeters) and a thickness of 12.6 millimeters and a weight of 40 grams without the rubber-made hand strap.
Huawei Watch 2 supports a SIM Card and hence does not need to be paired with a smartphone to perform tasks. The tray is not visible as it is placed under the strap and the watch also supports 4G service.
Having a SIM card in the watch gives freedom to the user to use the watch without a smartphone. This, to experts, is considered a huge leap in the smartwatch industry.

Huawei Watch 2 has a 1.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen supporting 16 million colors with a resolution of 360x360 pixels covering an area of 42% of the watch. And it is covered in a layer of Corning Gorilla scratch and break resistance glass.

When it comes to communication, experts at Huawei equipped Huawei Watch 2 with WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. It also has a fast charging feature, supports MP3 music files, as well as voice commands to make phone calls.
It is powered by a non-removable 420 mAh lithium ion battery. It can power the watch for two to three days when used normally, and up to one week when it is less used.

Huawei Watch 2 will be available in the market by April 2017 with a price ranging around 350 USDs.
Huawei Watch 2 has many improvements when compared to the first generation as it has many advanced specifications with a better design. This will surely make it more appealing to users.
