Huawei has today launched its latest flagship smartwatch in India after originally unveiling it at the Mate 30 launch event in Munich, Germany, back in September. Called the Huawei Watch GT 2, it’s a successor to the company’s Huawei Watch GT smartwatch and brings a number of new software and hardware upgrades over its predecessor.
Huawei Watch GT 2 Features and Specifications
The Huawei Watch GT 2 comes in two sizes, including with a 42mm variant with a 1.2-inch AMOLED display (390 x 390 resolution) and a 46mm variant with a 1.39-inch AMOLED display (454 x 454 resolution), with a 3D glass uni-piece crystal-bezel design and always-on mode. The rest of the tech specs remain identical, including a Kirin A1 chip, 4 GB built-in storage (~2GB usable) and 5ATM water-resistance.
The smartwatch also packs GPS, a heart rate sensor and support for the new Bluetooth v5.1 (BLE) standard, offering 2x better range the Apple Watch Series 4. The watch runs on Huawei’s own LiteOS instead of Google’s WearOS and sports a battery of unspecified capacity that the company says will last around 30 hours in GPS mode, 24 hours of music playback and 10 hours of Bluetooth calling.
Sensors include an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a geomagnetic sensor, an optical heart rate sensor, an ambient light sensor, an air pressure sensor and a capacitive sensor. Like the recently-launched Honor MagicWatch 2, the GT 2 also supports 15 sports modes and has an integrated microphone and speaker for voice calling.
