Huawei released the original Huawei Watch at IFA 2015, with its second-generation smartwatch being anticipated for quite some time. Google rolled out its Android Wear 2.0 earlier this month, with LG Watch Style and Watch Sport being the first devices to launch with the new software update. With Android Wear 2.0, the search giant has brought its Google Assistant on the new LG smartwatches. Google’s Android Wear 2.0 brings new features such as more personalised watch faces, better ways to work out, new ways to use apps as well as a more convenient way to stay in touch with Google Assistant.

Huawei Watch with Android Wear features a scratch-proof sapphire crystal coated display. It has 1.4-inch touch-sensitive AMOLED display,( 400×400 pixels resolution in 286 ppi), and has a stainless steel frame, along with a built-in heart rate monitor, and 6-Axis motion sensors. In our review, we said Huawei Watch is the best one in the Android Wear space. If you don’t care for the Moto 360 and want something more elegant-looking, then go for this one.
