It has features galore: waterproofing, GPS and on-wrist mobile payments, plus new watch faces and a growing app store.

Wrist payments don’t work with as many banks as Apple Pay and Android Pay. On-wrist music is hard to set up and use. Software and apps sometimes feel buggy.

Huawei Watch 2, It’s got everything you would expect from smartwatches, including cellular connectivity. If smartwatches are your things. The Watch 2 looks similar to Samsung’s Gear S3 but without the rotating bezels: classic, traditional-looking round sports watch. While it’s too bulky for my personal tastes, Smartwatches are coming along, but they’ve yet to deliver on their promise and become a truly essential piece of technology.
