The Huawei Watch 2 boasts a sportier look whereas the Watch 2 Classic, as the name suggests, has a classic look. The Watch 2 comes with silicone strap whereas the Watch 2 Classic sports a leather strap. Also, another difference between both these smartwatches is that the Watch 2 comes with LTE connection but the Watch 2 Classic doesn’t.

Both these smartwatches run Android Wear 2.0 which was announced earlier this month. This means that the Watch 2 smartwatches will let you make payments through Android Pay.
