Company CEO Richard Yu took to Chinese social networking site Weibo to share the news, while also debuting the teaser above that unfortunately doesn't show us the watch.

What the image does show us is that the emphasis on fitness and a "sportier" look, first tipped by Evan Blass some weeks back, appears to be accurate. The promo shot also features the tagline "made for free spirits", just in case you needed any more evidence.
And since it appears Blass' sporty tip looks set to come in, it's also worth noting he detailed the watch to feature a 42mm case, 1.4-inch display and leather and stainless steel straps. Prospective users will also apparently be given the option of cellular connectivity and the choice of a model which offers a built-in SIM card.
It's still unconfirmed whether the watch will run on Android Wear 2.0, as expected, or make the surprise leap across to another OS like Tizen. Given the timing, seeing a continued collaboration with Android seems like the logical bet.

We really liked the design of the first Huawei Watch, so it will be interesting to see if we feel the same with a sportier design. Hopefully the price will be a bit more reasonable, too, when all the details are spilled at the Barcelona conference in two weeks time.
