Honor MagicWatch 2 review: Everything you get with Huawei Watch GT 2, except the price tag

Honor made a big song and dance about the design and feature set included in the MagicWatch 2 ahead of its launch. Once you’ve waded through the marketing jargon, you’ll discover the new device is essentially a re-badged Huawei Watch GT 2 with a lower price tag.

That’s certainly not a criticism of the device – we reviewed the Huawei Watch GT 2 back in October and were hugely impressed with its array of fitness features, outstanding battery life, and build quality. The MagicWatch 2 matches the GT 2 in every regard but has one advantage: price.


Instead of taking on the same £159.99 price tag as the GT 2, the MagicWatch 2 starts at £149.99 (for the 42mm sizes of each, anyway). That means unless you’re particularly excited about having a Huawei logo on aluminium clasp of your wearable, the MagicWatch 2 is a no-brainer.

The price disparity between the two watches also exists on the beefier 46mm edition. Huawei’s GT 2 comes in at £179.99 while the MagicWatch 2 undercuts it at £159.99, although it’s currently on sale for £139.99 until February 16.

So are there any differences between the MagicWatch 2 and the Huawei Watch GT 2?
