The new Huawei Watch GT 2 can be considered a huge step forward compared to its predecessor. The main improvements with the Watch GT 2 is the performance, stability, health tracking, and battery life. The GT 2 isn’t a massive upgrade from the GT but the improvements that have been made are enough to be recommended.
The design for the Huawei Watch GT 2 is inspired by the aesthetic design of minimalism that integrates a higher quality 3D glass face for the bezel-less vision. The design and the build quality are captured in the details of the watch case with its classic design style.
There are two variants for the watch, the 46 mm version and the 42 mm variant for those who want something smaller on their wrist. The design of the Watch GT 2 with the bezel-less design is slick and leans outwards without an extra edge.
There are two buttons on the side, with the top one which gives you instant access to the menu, and the bottom which programmable that you can set it to activate the activity tracker by a single press, for example. The 22-mm rubber straps are standard and easily interchangeable.
Huawei also offers Classic or Elite editions with leather or steel straps for a more formal look.
Huawei Watch GT 2 series explores the limits of smartwatch battery life. With Huawei’s Kirin A1 self-developed wearable chip, the dual-chip design and the intelligent power-saving tech, it serves you day and night for up to 2 weeks.
It has all the basic stuff covered like the heart rate sensor, activity tracker, it also calculates stress levels and VO2Max and over a dozen sports activities with running courses for good measure.
There is no Wi-Fi or LTE capability, meaning you have to link it with the Huawei Health app, which means it connects instantly with Huawei devices like the Mate 30 Pro or the Huawei FreeBuds 3, but everything else needs the application for proper initial setup.
Huawei Watch GT 2 supports features like Bluetooth calling, in-device Music, Message Notification, TruSleep 2.0 sleep tracking and TruRelax pressure monitoring among other great features to make your everyday life easier. Users will live an efficient life with GT 2 specially designed for the users.
A new breakthrough for the GT series is in personal training. The Huawei Watch GT 2 tracks the user’s workouts with precise positioning systems and will monitor their heart rates with the accurate TruSeen 3.5. It is a professional companion for both indoor and outdoor activities.
The Huawei Watch GT 2 is sure to last 24 hours with the monitors and sensors such as the heart rate sensor and sleep tracking constantly activated. When a more powerful sensor such as GPS is constantly activated, it will last about 1 and ½ to 2 hours per week. Even with the always-on feature, it lasts quite long.
It charges via a USB port and it will take up to 2 hours to get fully charged but unfortunately there is no wireless charging feature available.
