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.

The normal Huawei Watch 2 is not all that great, but the 'Classic' variant retains the traditional timepiece design of the original model.

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.

[Deal Alert] Get a gold-plated Huawei Watch for $252.52 ($497.47 off)

The Huawei Watch was perhaps the best of the first-generation Android Wear devices. Aside from it being the most watch-looking watch (compared to the postage stamp glued to a piece of leather styling of the original ZenWatch), the original Huawei Watch was a solid performer, particularly compared to the second generation. Amazon has slashed the price of the premium gold-plated stainless steel watch with matching band to a third of MSRP.

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.

[Deal Alert] Huawei Watch 2 Sport is just $181.91 ($108 off), Classic just $286.75 ($83 off) on Amazon

We weren't big fans of the Huawei Watch 2, especially considering how good the first-gen Huatch was, and its $299.99 price tag didn't help it out. 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.

Porsche Design Huawei Watch 2 launches today for the princely sum of €795 ($925) in Europe

The Huawei Watch 2 Classic's regular price of $369.99 puts it at the higher end of the Android Wear market. However, its price is somewhat justifiable - it looks good, has a high-resolution AMOLED display, the latest Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, more RAM than its competitors, a large battery, GPS, and NFC. It's expensive because it has high-quality components. So what does the Porsche Design Huawei Watch 2 bring to the table for the extra $555?
