    Post MWC 2017: Huawei Watch 2

    This image, from a New Atlas photo essay, is the one you need to see if you're considering an upgrade from the original Huawei Watch.

    Huawei is clearly drawing inspiration from Casio for its new sport watch—there's maybe a bit of Gear S3 in there as well but alas, the bezel doesn't move. As for the Classic, it looks to me like the old LG Watch R, just not as nice. Keep in mind, though, this is coming from your resident smartwatch snob, and since smartwatches are basically jewellery for men (and sometimes women) looks are ultimately subjective. So let's instead take a look at some cold, hard specs, straight from the source:

    Yup, that's right, both the Watch 2 Sport and Watch 2 Classic will have a model supporting 4G directly, via either a SIM card or eSIM. And if you wanted something a bit more luxurious than the Classic edition, Wareable has details on a collaboration between Huawei and Porsche Design.

    LG G6 followed by a Samsung S7 Edge as a backup.

    Considering the price of the Casio, I think this is a good idea, but I'd have to see it in person to really tell for sure. I have the original, and it's really great, so no real reason to upgrade unless these are like twice as good battery wise(they aren't). Still, at least they got out of their safe zone and tried something different. Hope it works out for them.

    Looking through the specs, I feel this is an advanced version but not expected features though. Just want to look whether it is the original version.

    I picked one up I like it.
    The only issue is the screen is a bit small but it has all the sensors.
    Setting up Android Pay on the Watch is easy and very cool.
