What are The Differences?

Features compared







  1. Design
  2. The major differences between the watch 2 and watch 2 classic can be found in the design of the two smartwatches. The watch 2 has a sporty look while the watch 2 classic going by its name has a classic look.

    The watch 2 is lighter, weighs only 40 grams making it perfect for sports activities. This can be attributed to the casing material which is a thermoplastic while the classic is heavier weighing 46grams, the body is made of thermoplastic/stainless steel.

    On the other hand the classic has a longer 22mm strap size compared to the watch 2 which has a silicon 20mm strap size which also adds to its sporty appearance.

  3. Battery
  4. Obviously, the battery life of the watch 2 classic is longer than that of the watch 2 due to it’s 4G network capability, but only a slight difference in battery life between the two devices. However that little additional battery life could be the game changer.

  5. Cellular Technology
  6. Another factor separating the watch 2 from the classic is the 4G cellular network capability that can be found on the watch 2 but not on the watch 2 classic. This makes the watch 2 a standalone device, you can make calls directly from the watch 2 unlike the classic.

    Which Should You Buy

    Depending on what your needs are, the watch 2 is best for sporting activities because of the silicon strap that comes with it whereas the classic just like the name sounds will be great for official outings, but nothing has changed though because you can easily change the strap with a 20mm or 22mm for either the watch 2 or watch 2 classic respectively.

    On the other hand if you are more concerned about a standalone device then the Watch 2 will be a great choice.

    In all both devices are great choices, the difference only lies in the weight, casing materials, strap and the 4G cellular network capability of the watch 2.

    Our Pick

    We will go for the Huawei watch 2 considering the fact that you can easily change the strap to your preferred choice plus its lighter and even more has a 4G network capability. It is the more comprehensive of the two smartwatches.
