These was a lull in Android Wear releases last year as Google revamped the Wear 2.0 update, but now a new wave of devices is upon us. The idea of a smartwatch is still unproven, though. If you buy one, you want to make sure it's the right one. Huawei had a massive hit in 2015 with the original Huawei Watch, and the Huawei Watch 2 came out earlier this year. However, that was a sport-oriented watch that didn't bear much resemblance to the original. More recently, the Huawei Watch 2 Classic launched with a traditional watch look. This device seems very good on paper, but what's it like in real life? Here are the best and worst things about the Huawei Watch 2 Classic.
Looks like a real watch: Of all the smartwatches I've worn, the Huawei Watch 2 Classic might be the most stealthyhuawei smartwatch 2. The size and shape are similar to a real watch, so people assume that's what it is. This is ideal if you don't want to be that guy wearing a smartwatch. The lugs are also completely standard, so you can swap in any 22mm strap. Although, the stock "hybrid" band is quite good. It's made of soft leather with a flexible rubber cushion on the wrist side.
