Huawei Watch 2 Classic (with stainless steel body and leather band) out now in the US
Several weeks after Huawei released its plastic and ceramic-made Watch 2 in the US, today, the company started selling a classier version of the device - aptly called Huawei Watch 2 Classic.

The Huawei Watch 2 Classic has a stainless steel body, and comes with nicer wrist bands that are made out of leather (on the regular Watch 2, you're only getting plastic straps). 

For the reasons mentioned above, the Watch 2 Classic is a bit more expensive, being sold for $369.99 - that's $70 over the price of the regular variant of the smartwatch.

Feature-wise, the Huawei Watch 2 Classic resembles its less elegant brethren, so it's offering a 1.2-inch, 390 x 390 pixels circular display, built-in GPS, NFC, heart rate sensor, 4 GB of internal memory, and a 420 mAh battery. The smartwatch is dust- and water-resistant, and runs Android Wear 2.0, thus being compatible with both Android, and iOS devices. There's no LTE or any other kind of cellular connectivity on board, but Huawei plans to offer an LTE version of the Watch 2 sometime soon.

You can order the Huawei Watch 2 Classic online via Best Buy, Newegg, or Amazon - check out the source links below. For a limited time, buyers of the new smartwatch are getting 10 weeks of free access to Google Play Music. Interested?

Pass. Don't know how Huawei managed to go from the most beautiful Android watch to this thing. Anyone have a new near bezel-less smartwatch yet?
