Recently there had been many leaks about the Huawei Watch GT 2, the successor to popular Watch GT. Finally Huawei unveiled it at an event in Munich thus bringing an end to all the rumors and leaks.
There will be two models available for Watch GT 2, a 46mm model with 1.39-inch display and a smaller 42mm model with 1.2-inch display. The AMOLED displays of both the models have 454 x 454 and 390 x 390 pixel resolution respectively. Huawei claims that the new full round ‘”3D glass design” allows a wider look and feel.
Both of these smartwatches will be powered by new Kirin A1 chip and will have Huawei’s latest HarmonyOS at heart. Health and sports tracking has also became better in GT 2 compared to the previous model. The watch comes with up to 50 meters water-resistance and packs an improved heart rate sensor. The sensor now has serious health tracking abilities to help monitor heart failure and bradycardia. It is able to track your activity 24/7 including sleep and stress monitoring.
For sports tracking GT 2 has got 15 sports tracking modes including various walking and hiking options, running, swimming in open water or pools and more. On this you can use companion apps to guide you on the basis of your performance. The watch comes with 2GB of storage which can store 500 mp3 files and can take Bluetooth calls up to 150 meters away from your phone to let you untether from your phone. All thanks to the speaker and microphone combo that Huawei has added to this watch.
Watch GT 2 has got a highly impressive battery life which is better than its predecessor. The larger version can last up to two weeks with heart rate monitoring and notifications on and 30 hours of GPS tracking while the smaller version offers one week battery life and 15 hours of GPS tracking. Both these versions are very different in design too. As far as the price is concerned, the 46mm model of Watch GT 2 costs $275 and the 42mm model will cost you $250. They are very reasonably priced like Watch GT and will be available from October.
