There’s no denying, I was a big fan of the original Huawei Watch. It was classy, stylish, and most importantly for me, it looked like a real watch. Enter the Huawei Watch 2. This year, things have changed. With this device, Huawei has its eye on the fitness folk, almost as if there aren’t a million other companies trying to do the same. Did they nail it? Let’s find out.

The original Huawei Watch might still be one of the best smartwatches on the planet (our review). Actually, no, it is one of the best.

If I were in Europe, I’d most definitely consider one of the two as my next phone. (more…)
