In the world of technology, it's rare that a successor product is actually worse than the one that preceded it.
Today is a rare day.
The Huawei Watch 2 is a step backward - multiple steps, even - from the original, even if it does claw back some of that lost ground with new features. The Huawei Watch 2 adds NFC, GPS, LTE, and Android Wear 2.0 to its repertoire, which all sounds well and good. Alas, it all feels for naught when it comes down to the final product experience. What it takes away is almost everything that made the original the de facto champion of the Android Wear world. Read More
The wait for OTA updates seems to be our "favorite" past-time these days. Android 7.0 or 7.1.1 for our phones, Play Store support for our Chromebooks, Wear 2.0 for our watches, we're almost always waiting for some new firmware to hit our devices. But one of these could be coming to an end soon: according to @HuaweiServiceDE, Android Wear 2.0 might be rolling to the Huawei Watch at the end of March. Read More
The Huawei Watch, released in 2015, was arguably the best Android Wear device on balance until very recently. Accordingly, its sequel has been much-awaited by fans hoping that the device would be modernized with new features like NFC and Android Wear 2.0 while maintaining the simple elegance that made it such an aesthetically versatile smart timepiece. In fact, I think most Huawei watch fans would actually just be OK with using the same watch body from 2015, albeit with a newer chipset and Android Pay support, and maybe some new finish options or additional buttons.

Google has given us an official, updated list of every Android Wear smartwatch being upgraded to version 2.0 of the platform as part of its announcement of the LG Watch Style and Watch Sport today. The list of devices receiving the update follows. Read More
The original Huawei Watch was released nearly two years ago, and received mostly great reviews (including from us). While being a bit large and fairly expensive, it's still one of the best Android Wear watches you can buy, and even can run the Android Wear 2.0 Developer Previews. The watch was removed from the Google Store last month, but it looks like a new model is on the horizon. Read More
The Huawei Watch is one of the best smartwatches out there, with its only real downfall being the charging puck you're forced to use. However, if stainless steel isn't premium enough for you, Amazon's got a deal for you. Two gold-plated models of the Huawei Watch, which come with some pretty luxurious bands, have been discounted by up to $370. Now that's what I call a deal. Read More
With all the uncertainty, I don't imagine Android Wear smartwatches will be a hot item this holiday season. Some people are probably still willing to take a risk, but pickings are getting slim either way. Even though it launched more than a year ago, the Huawei Watch is still considered by many to be the best Android Wear device. It's no longer on sale in the Google Store, though. Read More
The Huawei Watch is easily one of the best Android Wear watches on the market right now, especially when it comes to design. There are a few different styles to choose from, some costing more than others. The Jewel/Pearl model, shown above with a gold finish and tiny jewels circling the display, is down to $349.99 on Amazon, B&H, and Walmart. That's a whopping $200 off the original price, by far the lowest it has ever been (the last lowest price was $470). Read More
Android Wear deals are pretty abundant nowadays, and the fact that many major OEMs won't be releasing any new AW-powered smartwatches this year makes them even more appealing. Now, you can pick up a leather strap-equipped Huawei Watch refurb from Newegg's eBay store for just $159.99 - that's $40 less than Newegg's usual price for the refurbished Huawei Watch, and a whopping $190 less than the Watch's MSRP.
The Huawei Watch is generally regarded as one of the best AW watches currently available, but it usually commands a high price tag. Although the MSRP was originally $499, most models have lowered in price since release. At least one of the versions, the Gold/Sapphire model, has finally dropped under $200. Read More
