The much expected Honor Watch Magic 2 has been announced and is set to be released later in December. It succeeds the Honor Watch Magic released last year, and is available in two sizes; 42mm and 46mm. The main difference between these two is that the 46mm has a microphone and loudspeaker which enables voice command and Bluetooth calling features that are not present on the 42mm. Finally, the 46mm has a longer battery life than the 42mm model.
The more stylish and elegant Magic 2 ships with the Kirin AI chip under the hood which promises better performance and overall enhanced user experience, while also being more equipped with Huawei TruSleep, Truseen and Trurelax to proactively track your active life. Swim-heart rate tracking has also been added.
