Earlier this year, before we heard that the company’s CEO isn’t into smartwatches, Huawei announced the Huawei Watch 2 and Watch 2 Classic. The unveiling was made during the MWC 2017 trade show near the end of February, and this week we have finally been given confirmation as to availability and pricing.
The Huawei Watch 2 is now available in the US, and it goes for $299. This is a slight drop from the initial price the original Huawei Watch was listed at, which varied between $349 and $399 depending on the retailer. Part of the reason could be the Android Wear market, which is as competitive as ever right now with offerings from makers like LG, Casio, New Balance, and a few others.
According to Huawei, the Huawei Watch 2 will be sold at Best Buy, Amazon, Newegg, B&H Photo Video, Jet, Target, and Walmart. However, only four of these, as of the time this post was written, have put their online listings up. The links to those have been included at the bottom of this post. Color choices will include Carbon Black or Concrete Grey. Full details on the watch can be seen here.
The Huawei Watch 2 Classic will join the Huawei Watch 2 on shelves and online later this year. Its cost will be a bit steeper at $369. No word has yet been mentioned regarding an LTE-enabled model nor the Porshe model for the US.
Those who act now and order a Huawei Watch 2 will be eligible to receive 10 free weeks of Play Music for free, and it works standalone on the watches.
