If your Huawei Watch is on the latest developer preview, then you'll likely be able to install Android Wear 2.0 right now. Those who are on the stable branch of Android Wear 1.5 are not getting the update yet.
Google has posted another update in regards to rollout timing for Android Wear 2.0. For devices that haven't received it yet, such as the Huawei Watch, Moto 360 Gen 2, and others, Google says to expect updates to arrive at some point before the end of May.
The original Huawei Watch is available on Amazon for $165. That's half off the original retail price of the smartwatch. While the watch hasn't received the Android Wear 2.0 update yet, it is one of the devices that will be updated in the future.

Despite initial reports claiming that Huawei was discontinuing the Huawei Watch Elegant and Jewel, Huawei has confirmed that the company is in the process of replenishing inventory "after a busy holiday season".
