Stay connected with the Huawei Watch 2 Sport Smartwatch in Carbon Black. This 42mm watch connects to your Android or iOS smartphone or tablet to give you convenient up-to-the minute notifications, messaging functionality, and more, all while tracking your physical activity and heart rate.
The 42mm Watch 2 features a 1.2″ circular always-on 390 x 390 AMOLED display covered by Corning Gorilla Glass and is powered a 1.1 GHz Snapdragon Wear 2100 quad-core processor and 768 MB of RAM. 4GB of onboard memory lets you store music, apps, and more. It runs the Android Wear 2.0 operating system, which connects to Android and iOS mobile devices via Bluetooth 4.1 LE or to Wi-Fi networks.
Android Wear 2.0
With the Android Wear 2.0 update, Google’s smartwatch platform unbinds itself from your smartphone. A complete overhaul based on Android 7.1. Nougat, it takes some big features from that OS, including the Google Assistant, battery saving settings, and fine control of app permissions. It adds a full-fledged version of the Play Store, so you won’t need to shift back and forth between devices to load your apps onto your watch. Wear 2.0 allows for compatible apps to connect to the Internet directly over Wi-Fi or cellular connection. Android Pay over NFC lets you use your watch for payment at participating establishments.
Other improvements include an update to Google Fit, which allows for the tracking of strength-training exercises on select devices; a QWERTY keyboard that allows direct response to incoming messages; support for homescreen complications, which function like smartphone widgets; and more.
The Watch 2’s motion sensors keep track of your activity and know whether you’re walking, running, or climbing. Pressing the lower crown button lets you start a workout instantly, with live GPS and run coaching. A built-in heart rate tracker provides additional information about your workouts as well as your day to day life, and functions like VO2max, training effect, recovery advice, lap/time/distance reminders, and speed guidance let you perform at your best.
The Watch features a completely circular 42mm face reminiscent of traditional wristwatches. Its buttons are situated at 2 and 4 o’clock for comfort and easy access. The 20mm lug size allows the Watch 2 to accept a wide variety of watch bands.
Dust and Water Resistant
An Ingress Protection rating of IP68 means the watch is dustproof and can withstand submersion in a tank of still tap water at room temperature for about 30 minutes at a depth of 4.9′.
