The original Huawei Watch was launched in 2015 and other than the women's version of the watch, we haven't seen any upgrades. Now, the company has unveiled two new versions of the watch - the Huawei Watch 2 and Huawei Watch 2 Classic.

The Huawei Watch 2 has a sporty design while the Classic version is a bit fancier. Both watches are running the recently-introduced Android 2.0, and they have Google Assistant on board.

The 420 mAh batteries allow up to two days of life, but Huawei claims that a new low-power mode will allow the watches to last up to 25 days.
