Huawei is going to be present at the Mobile World Congress 2017 later this month to unveil two new smartphones that many have been looking forward to. The Huawei P10 and P10 Plus are due to be unveiled at MWC 2017 but we now know that there’s going to be another product on the roster. Huawei CEO Richard Yu has confirmed via Weibo today that the Huawei Watch 2.0 is also going to be launched at this event.

It has been a while since Huawei launched a new smartwatch so the company’s fans will certainly be interested to see what it has created. There aren’t a lot of details available about this wearable device right now so it can’t be said for sure what specifications it’s going to tout and what it’s going to look like.

All that can be said with certainty is that it’s going to be powered by Android Wear 2.0 right out of the box. Richard Yu didn’t reveal any details about the Huawei Watch 2 on Weibo. His post included a teaser image of a man running and looking at his smartwatch.

The teaser carries the slogan “Made for free spirits,” which suggests that this might be focused towards customers who live an active lifestyle. Previous rumors have suggested that the Huawei Watch 2 may have eSIM and mobile connectivity support but that’s not confirmed at this point in time. We’ll only know for sure once Huawei makes the official announcement at MWC 2017 in the final week of this month.
