At the Huawei AI Life Product launch today in Europe, the Chinese giant announced two new watches. The first is the luxury Watch GT 2 Pro which boasts some significant upgrades over its predecessors and there is the Watch Fit that was announced in the Middle East a few weeks ago.
Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro
The Watch GT 2 Pro is a premium watch and that shows in the type of materials used. The 1.39-inch 454 x454 AMOLED display is covered in scratch-resistant sapphire glass, the body is made from titanium, and the underside is ceramic.
While there are multiple watch faces to choose from, there are some notable ones such as the Starry Sky Watch Face that show the moon phase. Another feature Huawei announced for the watch is OneHop Watch Face. This feature allows you to take a picture with your phone and use it as a watch face just by touching the phone (Huawei models with NFC and running EMUI 11+) against the dial of the watch and you have a new watch face.
The Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro is available in two variants – Classic and Sport. There are more than 100 workout modes including professional ones such as Golf Driving Range mode and Skiing and Snowboarding mode that show info such as slope and elevation.
Another feature is an offline navigator with a route back mode. Health isn’t left out either as the watch has a stress monitor, sleep tracking, SpO2 monitor, and a heart rate monitor that alerts you when it detects an abnormal heart rate.
The Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro boasts a 14-day battery life in typical usage. It will last 30 hours with GPS enabled and can also provide up to 24 hours of playback on a single charge. One of the major additions to the watch is support for wireless charge and a 5-minute charge will provide up to 10 hours of usage.
The new smartwatch also has support for smart watch apps that bring additional features. There is less than 4GB of storage available, so we don’t expect the watch to be able to take more than a few apps. You can also accept calls with the watch when paired with your phone as it has a built-in microphone and speaker.
The Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro will go on sale this month. The Sport version will sell for €329 while the Classic version will sell for €349. You will be able to choose between Night Black and Nebula Gray color options.
Huawei Watch Fit
The Huawei Watch Fit which was announced a few weeks ago in the Middle East has also received a launch in Europe. The watch which has a 10-day battery life and has built-in animated workouts will sell for €129 and will go on sale later this month.
