Huawei’s second-generation Android Wear smartwatch is now available for purchase in the US. The Huawei Watch 2 comes in black or gray and sells for $299.99. A slightly different model, the Huawei Watch 2 Classic, will soon be available for $369.99.

Huawei’s focus for this watch is notably different from the polished, fashion-forward approach for its first version. The new watch is much chunkier and larger than the prior model, but has a distinct focus on fitness-tracking features. As a result, it includes dedicated GPS for tracking runs and comes with extra software for tracking workouts. The Huawei Watch 2 also includes NFC for Android Pay.

The US release does not include the LTE-equipped version of the Watch 2 that Huawei demonstrated at Mobile World Congress earlier this year, but the company says it is currently in talks with carriers about releasing the connected version here.

The Huawei Watch 2 works with both iOS and Android and can be purchased at Best Buy, Amazon, and other retailers.
