Huawei Watch 2 release date set for MWC 2017

It’s not only the smartphone segment that Huawei is targeting at the MWC 2017, but it has set its eyes on other areas as well. One of them being the smartwatch segment. The company has officially announced to launch the second generation Huawei Watch with Android Wear 2.0 out-of-the-box, during the event.

The announcement was made by Richard Yu, Huawei’s CEO via a Weibo post. The post, alongwith the announcement, carried a photo of a man in sports gear looking at a watch on his wrist. This leads us to surmise that Huawei Watch 2 will focus much more on fitness activity.
