Android Wear 2.0 is here. Well, not on anything available in Australia yet, I’m afraid, but it is somewhere in the world. With LG and Google deciding to snub us Aussies, we all have our eyes on the other Android Wear manufacturers. Today we see some good news regarding this – the Huawei Watch 2.0.
Huawei is gearing up for a big MWC with not only the announcement of the P10 and P10 Plus but also for the likely announcement of a new Huawei Watch (Watch 2?). Confirmed by Huawei CEO, Richard Yu on Weibo today, the new Huawei Watch will arrive with Android Wear 2.0:
Recent rumours point to the Huawei Watch 2 being a sporty version of the first Watch, which Yu seemingly confirmed with an attached image showing a person exercising while looking at what I am assuming is their sporty Huawei Watch 2 (see header image). The associated tag line is “Made for free spirits” which also fits in with the sporty rumour.
The Huawei Watch 2 specs are still relatively unknown although it is expected to come with a sim slot and LTE connectivity. This brings us back to Chris’ post the other day — who really needs/wants LTE connectivity in a watch?
I have loved my Huawei Watch over the last year and am in the market for a new sporty AW 2.0 watch so this is right up my alley. Ausdroid will be at MWC in force with Chris and Jason attending the Huawei announcements so we will see news on the Watch 2 as it breaks. Stay tuned as we will have full coverage of MWC with 3 sets of boots on the ground to cover all the cool new gadgets.
