Wear OS Developer Preview 2 delivers enhanced battery saver mode

So much of our attention right now is focused on what's new with the Android P Beta, but it's not the only platform update Google's introducing this week at I/O. Back in March, Google started the next chapter of its wearable story with the re-branding of Android Wear as Wear OS, followed a couple weeks later by the release of the first Wear OS Developer Preview.

Huawei Watch 2 Pro with eSIM launched in China for ¥2588 ($390) [Updated]

Huawei today announced the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro in China, but along with them came one surprise that we didn't see at the international launch event in Munich: a new Huawei Watch 2 Pro. It looks pretty much like the Huawei Watch 2 Classic, but with one main difference: eSIM support.

The new Watch 2 Pro has 4G/3G/2G support for its eSIM, along with Bluetooth. Not a lot of specs are discernible in the Huawei page, even when translated, so I can't tell what processor is inside, what size is the display, the amount of RAM or storage, and so on.

But at a hair over $180, the Watch 2 Sport becomes a much more enticing purchase, as does the Classic at $286.75. These are both the lowest prices we've seen on Amazon.
