There is no doubt that the Huawei Watch was one of the best smartwatches to have ever been launched with respect to Android Wear.
The watch was launched back in 2015 as you probably know by now, it was powered by the first version of Android Wear, but it is eligible for an upgrade to the latest Android Wear 2.0. As noted, the Huawei Watch was loved by many thanks to its classic design that included a round screen of a typical watch. With Huawei having confirmed that it will be attending the Mobile World Congress 2017 show in Barcelona, the company’s CEO Richard Yu has highlighted on what to expect at the event.
Apparently, the Huawei P10 will not be the only device to highlight the show, rather, the Chinese OEM has plans to unveil the 2nd-gen Huawei Watch 2 at the same event, which only but confirms previous rumors that the smartwatch will indeed be launched in a couple of weeks.

Despite confirming the launch date of the Huawei Watch 2, Yu doesn’t go into the details of the watch, however, he mentions that the Android Wear 2.0 device will come with a massive 1000mAh (although the post says 10,000mAh) battery unit, which is more than three times the 300mAh battery of the current Huawei Watch. This is a huge improvement that should make someone who has owned the first-gen smartwatch since 2015 want to make the shift immediately.
Given the expected small size of the Huawei Watch 2, it will also be interesting to see how the company creates room for this huge battery unit. However, considering the monstrous size, the Watch 2 battery will also come with support fast charging technology. Impressive huh! Huawei could also be targeting the sports industry with the new watch as the teaser shows off a man in sports attire donning the watch.
