Take $60 off the Huawei Watch 2, $102 off the Huawei Watch 2 Classic via Amazon
Amazon has a couple of Android Wear powered smartwatches on sale for a limited time only. The Huawei Watch 2 is now priced at $239, a savings of $60.99 or 20% from the online retailer's normal price. The Huawei Watch 2 Classic is $267.21, a savings of $102.78 or 28% from Amazon's everyday price. Both watches are powered by Android Wear 2 and will be updated to Android Wear Oreo. Their specs are mostly identical with both carrying a 1.2-inch circular AMOLED display and the Snapdragon Wear 2100 platform. Both run on a 420mAh battery and have an IP68 certification rating. That means that both timepieces can be submerged in up to nearly 5-feet of water for up to 30 minutes, and emerge unscathed.

Both watches have built-in GPS and will monitor your heart rate without pairing to your phone. You will need to download the Android Wear app from the Google Play Store to sync with your handset, and Google Assistant is your digital helper on both models. While exercising, a virtual workout coach provides real-time guidance. And both timepieces will play music offline, so you won't need to schlep your phone with you when you run. Those purchasing either Huawei Watch 2 model will receive 10-weeks of Google Play Music for free. Shipping is also on the house.

Just the other day, we told you that Google will soon be rolling out an update to the Android Wear phone app. Version 2.9 of the app includes a new notification complication that allows you to view previews of your messages. Another change adds "improved glanceability in notification cards with longer titles." And a notification dot/counter alerts you to notifications that you haven't read.
