Huawei Watch 2 Porsche Design edition lands in the UK and Europe

No word on if the device will make it to other territories
Huawei's Porsche Design Watch 2 lands

After entering the Android Wear 2.0 game with its Huawei Watch 2 back in May, those in the UK and Europe can now pick up the Porsche Design edition Huawei teased back at MWC.

As you might expect with this device, it's all about looks, with the Porsche Design name on the chronograph bezel and a leather strap with red stitching. However, as we saw from our brief look at the device in February, it doesn't look all that different from its Sport and Classic siblings.

And in terms of specs, it's a carbon copy of the Watch 2. That means you'll get a 1.2-inch, 390 x 390, AMOLED touchscreen display, built-in GPS, NFC for Android Pay support and fitness features that include real-time coaching and VO2 max training.

Huawei Watch 2 gets the Porsche Design treatment

It will, of course, run on Android Wear 2.0, and includes a special Porsche Edition watch face that you'll be able to customise, thanks to the latest changes in Google's smartwatch operating system.

Again, if you were hoping for something that oozes style, that's not exactly the vibe we got when stood face to face with the watch. Yes, it looks nice and well built, but we've definitely seen more impressive designer collaborations from Apple and Samsung.

Huawei hasn't yet revealed if the device will eventually explore other territories outside of Europe, but we now know the device will cost €795 to pick up - converting to roughly $935. And when compared to the price of the Watch 2, which is $350, it's an awful long way to jump to get that Porsche Design branding.
