HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC Makes The Right Statement

PLANO, Texas, May 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Huawei is setting a new standard for premium watch adaptability. The company announced today that the second model in its second-generation smartwatch line, HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC, is now available in the U.S.

What separates HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC from other premium smartwatches is the ease with which it fits in, no matter the occasion. The sweat resistant hybrid leather/rubber band is fashionable enough for a business meeting, and functional enough for the gym, ensuring comfort throughout the day.

"We specifically designed HUAWEI WATCH 2 to feature cutting-edge technology while being stylish," commented Robin Zhu, President of Huawei Device USA. "Now, with the introduction of HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC, we have added versatility to the mix and offering consumers a watch that is equally suited to professional and recreational settings."

HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC features a stainless steel casing and ceramic bezel with a classic watch aesthetic. It has a high-definition AMOLED display with a 390×390 resolution, and a 45-mm (1.8") diameter and ratio, the same as a traditional wristwatch. Thoughtful details such as the dual-crown design and highly integrated antennae (GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth) make it practical and premium.

In addition to its versatility and adaptability, HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC integrates fitness guidance and scientific health-management functions to help consumers proactively improve their lifestyles. It provides consumers with all of the tools they need for connected well-being.

HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC measures daily activities through three key indicators: number of steps, duration of medium and high-intensity exercise, and stand-up times. It closely monitors the user’s activity and sends smart reminders to stand up or begin exercising, and will remind users of their daily fitness targets when sedentary.

Other HUAWEI WATCH 2 CLASSIC features:

  • Android Wear 2.0 and is iOS compatible
  • Updates to Google wearables OS are available, including Google Assistant
  • Ability to add both offline and online music through Google Play™ Music app
  • IP68 water-resistant classification
  • Optimized 420mAh battery lasts up to two days with regular use, up to 10 hours in training mode with the heart-rate sensor and GPS on, and up to three weeks in watch mode with the pedometer function on
  • Fast-charging technology powers up the watch from zero to 100% in less than an hour
