After making its debut at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain earlier this year, the Huawei Watch 2 is now available in Malaysia.
Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 1.1 GHz processor, the Watch 2 has a 4GB ROM internal storage (approximately 2.3GB for user storage) and a 768MB RAM. It runs on Android Wear 2.0, supports nano SIM card, 4G LTE and has a built-in GPS.
Interestingly, it can be paired with both Android (Android 4.3 and above) and iOS (iOS 8.2 and above) smartphones.
The 1.2in circular Amoled display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. The smartwatch has a 420mAh battery and can last up to eight hours in training mode (when using 4G LTE, GPS and real-time heart rate monitor). When used without a SIM card, the battery can last up to 2 days.
The Watch 2 is also a fitness device with built-in smart sensors that record the user’s activities, including distance, steps, heart rate and more. Users can also add music to their workouts through the Google Play Music app or Spotify.
The Watch 2 is water and dust resistant, and is currently only available in Carbon Black.
Available exclusively via Maxis Zerolution, users can sign up for the MaxisOne plan 158 or 188, and get a Huawei P10 or Mate 9 together with the Watch 2.
Under the MaxisOne plan 158, users have to pay an additional RM93 for P10, or RM148 for Mate 9; while under the MaxisOne plan 188 users need to pay an additional RM78 for P10 or RM133 for Mate 9.
“We have partnered with Maxis because it is currently the only telco in Malaysia that allows a one-number-multi-SIM service,” said Huawei Malaysia consumer business group trainer Patrick Chew.
“Users can leave their smartphones at home and head out while staying connected with Watch 2. They can answer calls and reply messages using just the smartwatch.”
There are plans to make Watch 2 available on Vmall, Huawei’s official online store, though Chew could not confirm when.
