Tech companies are banking on mobile devices meant to be worn on the user's wrist. These devices, which do more than tell time, are called smartwatches. Now, two smartwatches are being watched on by the industry and tech enthusiasts.
The first one is the second generation of one of the best-looking smartwatches, the Huawei Watch. Huawei Watch 2, which will be unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) that is set to happen in Barcelona at the end of February, according to a Weibo post from Huawei Technologies Consumer Business CEO, Richard Yu. The other one is the LG Watch Sport, which is the product of a Google and LG partnership. Here is a comparison of the prestigious models.
The LG Watch is perfect for users who would like to don a more sporty-looking gear. It also has a band that unfortunately cannot be replaced. However, the TPU straps are designed for sweat that could potentially gather in the user's wrist. The Huawei Watch 2 will also get a sportier look yet classy feel and will also offer both leather and stainless steel straps.
Performance And Capability
Huawei Watch 2, which has a 1.4-inch display, is interesting because it allows users to make phone calls. As reported, the next generation of the Huawei Watch actually has cellular connectivity complete with a variant that has a built-in SIM. What's more is that the device can have Internet access and users won't even need to connect to a phone.
The LG Watch Sport, on the other hand, is 14.5 mm in size and will also provide 3G and LTE connectivity. It was also noted to have an IP68 certification rating. The LG Watch Sport also boasts a rotating side button (RSB), big enough that users can use two fingers to spin it. It is essentially the Digital Crown found in the Apple Watch.
