Google showed one of its bets to enter the iPhone ecosystem with the presentation of Android Wear 2, the new version of the operating system for smartwatch that thanks to the new features that it promises to be a rival rather than decent to Apple Watch, for now the undisputed king of smartwatches. Now what is missing is that manufacturers also see it as an opportunity not to be missed, and Huawei has been one of the first to show its cards with the new Huawei Watch 2, a smartwatch with a sporty design that includes everything needed to convince iPhone users.
The new Huawei Watch 2 includes a heart rate sensor, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC to make payments through Android Pay, one of the novelties of Android Wear 2.0. But this is not here, because It has a 4G version with SIM card slot that will work with any operator in the world, and will also be compatible with eSIM in those places where available. This connectivity itself will be the main differentiated factor with respect to the Apple Watch and one of its main assets to compete with the Apple watch. The specifications are completed with an autonomy of up to 2 days according to the Chinese brand, so we can even monitor the sleep without problems by not having to load it every night.
The watch will be available from March in Spain, France, Portugal, Italy, Germany and China, later arriving in other markets such as the United Kingdom, the United States, Ireland, Switzerland, etc. Its price will vary depending on the model we choose, having the sports model without 4G for € 329 and the model with 4G connectivity for € 379, very competitive prices taking into account their benefits. There will also be an “Classic” Porsche Design m model with a steel case for € 399. As an Apple Watch user from the moment of its launch, I am absolutely convinced that with Android Wear 2.0 and the possibility of installing applications directly from the Google Play Store, one of the enormous limitations of previous generations of Android watches, these new models that they will appear on the market, they will begin to fight hard with the Apple watch.
