Huawei Watch 2 Review: Is The $300 Price Tag Worth It
After months of waiting, Huawei Watch 2 has finally arrived on U.S. shores. The smartwatch that tech pundits believed Google should have used to launch Android Wear 2.0 can be owned by tech aficionados for the hefty price tag of $300. And that is just the Carbon Black and Concrete Grey rubber strap variant. Meanwhile, the classic design with a mixed leather and rubber strap band, though not yet available, can be snatched at $370.
Having a smartwatch like Huawei Watch 2 can be convenient, as it lessens the occurrence of having to whip out a smartphone every minute. But is it worth breaking the bank for?
Huawei has made their latest technological offering's price more palatable by offering a freebie. The Shenzhen-headquartered company doles out a 10-week free trial of Google Play Music. But that is only for a limited time, Engadget writes. With that bundled perk, a user can try out the Bluetooth connection of the Huawei Watch 2 to a pair of supported audio device earphones.
The Google Play Music is also a great way of letting people get accustomed to listening to their music from a device on their wrist. But the Huawei Watch 2 is more than just a music player. Its Fitness app can accurately map with its GPS, monitor the user's heart rate, record steps and more. Tom's Guide says Watch 2 is not as robust as fitness-dedicated smartwatches but it does a good job in that regard.
Aside from that aspect, the Huawei Watch 2 battery can also stand the test of time. It can last 10 hours with both the GPS and the heart rate monitor turned on, the Chinese company claims. Furthermore, its charger is not as bulky as others of its kind. Its USB charger is a company exclusive but it is simple to use and can just be clipped on.
So, is the Huawei Watch 2 a buy? While it has good fitness features and a long battery life, it is not a smartwatch to spend $300 on.
