Huawei’s latest wearable, the Huawei Watch 2 is now available in the United States. First announced at the MWC in late February, the watch holds a bulkier rugged design, LTE support model, upgraded specs and more.
The watch is going on sale at almost all the retailers, such as Best Buy, Amazon, Newegg, B&H, Jet.com, Target.com, and Walmart.com. The watch 2 comes in two version: Standard and Classic. The standard version will include Carbon Black and Concrete Grey hue; and is priced at $300, while the Classic version is more expensive, priced at $370, with Titanium Grey as the color option.
As an added bonus, Huawei is offering 10 weeks of free access to Google Play Music. As you all know, the Google Play Music also includes YouTube Red that lets you watch the original videos and even the regular YouTube, scoring out the annoying ads.
For those who do not know, the US release does not include the LTE or 3G connectivity. This clearly infers that this particular market variant slightly differs from what the company had originally announced. Except this all the other features seems to be the same, including the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and even the NFC support, along with the Android Pay.
The surprising fact is, the Huawei has also planned to release the wearable piece of technology, in the following regions, by the month of April: Holland, Belgium, UK, Switzerland, Ireland, Nordics, Thailand, New Zealand, Russia, India, South Africa, Australia, Poland, Austria, Saudi Arabia, Japan, and UAE. But, unfortunately the Malaysian folks will get this watch, only by May.
