[Update: Moto 360 models, too] Huawei Watch 1 and 2 Wear OS v2.17 update brings speed improvements, UI refresh

The first Huawei Watch has long been held up as a prime example of a Wear OS device, while its successor, the Huawei Watch 2, didn't fare so well with critics. Both, however, benefit from a surprisingly active joint community of fans that are eager for all the latest updates. Android Police's tips inbox lit up with a flurry of activity when new UI changes courtesy of Wear OS v2.17 began to roll out over the past day, with users reporting that their devices now felt much smoother and faster.

New Huawei Watch with 'scientific sleep tracking' passes through the FCC

The original Huawei Watch was one of the best Wear OS devices ever produced, but its successor was a disappointment by comparison. Huawei said earlier this year that a new smartwatch "won't be released anytime soon," but it appears a new model is now in the final stages of development. A new watch with the model number 'FTN-B19' just passed through the FCC.

Skagen Falster review: A very sleek Wear OS watch let down by terrible hardware decisions

Over the last year, we've seen a tangible shift in Android Wear's — now Wear OS — direction. Previously geared toward the demanding techie crowd that was tough to win over, Google's smartwatch platform found a sort of reprieve in more niche markets. We've seen Wear watches made for extreme sports, outdoors, running, and a slew of fashion-forward models from recognized brands like Michael Kors, Diesel, GUESS, Fossil, Kate Spade, Emporio Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, and more. The latter all come from the Fossil group, a company that I think should be credited for Wear's second lease of life — and likely its rebrand to Wear OS to attract iPhone users.

Huawei Watch 3 in development, but it won't be released anytime soon

The original Huawei Watch was one of the best Android Wear devices you could buy in 2015, and it's still a popular watch to this day (mostly for lack of better options). Its successor came out a year ago, but it was a disappointment in almost every regard. The bulkier frame, uninspired sporty design, and small screen made it a downgrade from the original in many respects.

There aren't as many big players making Android Wear watches right now, but Huawei is one of them. The second-gen Huawei Watch came out earlier this year, and the price has remained pretty close to the MSRP. However, both versions of the watch are on sale today for more than $100 off MSRP.

2015's Huawei Watch is no longer the most recent smartwatch from the Chinese tech company, but in our eyes, it's still the best.

[Deal Alert] Black Huawei Watch with black stainless steel band is down to $199.99 open box on B&H / $219.99 new on Amazon and Best Buy ($180+ off)

The Huawei Watch isn't new anymore, but it's still one of the best Android Wear smartwatches out there, both in looks and functionality. The black body/black stainless steel band combo is arguably one of the best that Huawei offers, but it's also been somewhat pricey. Now, though, you can pick one up for as low as $199.99.

[Deal Alert] Huawei Watch in Jewel/Pearl $220 at Amazon ($330 off)

This one is a huge price drop. Just a few days ago this was $550 on Amazon (although it has been down around $450 a few times, like back at the beginning of April), but right now Huawei's Jewel/Pearl model of their OG smartwatch is $220. Huawei's Android Wear device is one of the best from the last generation. The style might not be for everyone, but the price certainly is. And the deal is at Amazon with no 3rd party seller or code needed. The only disadvantage is a slight delay in shipping.

[Update: Instructions] Android Wear 2.0 is finally rolling out to the Huawei Watch

Android Wear 2.0 has been sort of available for a few months, although almost no watches were running it. Your best bet if you wanted AW2.0 was to buy one of the new LG watches from Google. Now, one of the most popular Android Wear devices of yesteryear is getting Wear 2.0. If you've got a Huawei Watch, you might want to charge it up for the (hopefully) impending update. If you are on the preview, it's probably already downloading.

What We Use, 2017 Edition: The stuff Corbin can't live without

You may recall Android Police's long-running 'What We Use' series, where the fantastic people that work here share the tech (and sometimes non-tech) products they use on a frequent basis.

I haven't actually written one of these posts yet - simply because I only joined AP last year. I've had a fascination with technology as long as I can remember, but my arsenal of toys is constantly changing. So without further ado, this is what I use.
