Android Wear keeps stalling as Apple Watch keeps on taking the lead in software. Apple Watch still remains on the top as the highest sold watch ever. TagHeur ranks next. Google is setting its foot in this domain in the upcoming fall. The revamped WearOS might add value to Pixel SmartWatch. Huawei Watch 2 is still struggling to mark its value in this domain.
The Huawei Watch 2 (2017) was a revolutionary product in engineering product design, still, it lacks in performance and design. The plastic and stainless steel body made the device look stunning. The AMOLED display of the Huawei Watch 2 might remain same. Huawei Watch 2 had the Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 that added to its design and performance still the WearOS being not on par with Apple Watch 2.
This is the reason they are working closely with different manufacturers to develop the perfect product.
What we know about the new Huawei Watch 2
The Huawei Watch 2 2017 had a complete design and processing changeover. This made Huawei’s users happy and made many smartwatch users switch. Famous leakster Evan Blass comments about the upcoming device which will have no peculiar differences in itself apart from the fact of having an eSim. eSim support is increasing rapidly in the western countries and manufacturers are looking at investing in it.
*The only significant difference between the Huawei Watch 2 2018 and the original, is the addition of eSIM support. All other specs and the design remain unchanged.

Huawei Watch 2 is rumored not to use the new Qualcomm chipset. Instead, use the Snapdragon 2100 (a prior Snapdragon 210) with 768 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage – as that of the Watch 2.
Huawei will stick with the 1.2” AMOLED display (390 x 390 px), same battery, same wireless connectivity (including the e-SIM) and same sensors.
As for the price and release date, it’s too early to tell. It will stay in the neighborhood for sure. Peace.
