Reports of the arrival of Huawei Watch GT2 in India have been doing the rounds of the internet for quite some time now. But no official word around a tentative launch date was available so far. Huawei India just updated its official website with the ‘Notify Me’ button for the Watch GT2 earlier today. The link opens a pop-up window leading to the launch page on Amazon and Flipkart.
It is hardly surprising that Huawei plans to launch the Huawei Watch GT2 here in India, considering the first-generation Watch GT is among the best-selling smartwatches in the country. Huawei Watch GT2 will be available on both Flipkart and Amazon India. The smartwatch was first unveiled during the IFA 2019 tech exhibition in Berlin, Germany in September.

The Huawei Watch GT2 is available in two variants, 42 mm and 46 mm. While the 42 mm variant features a 1.2-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 390 x 390 pixels. The 46 mm variant sports a 1.39-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 454 x 454 pixels. The GT2 draws power from a Kirin A1 chipset, which is the world’s first dual-mode BT/BLE Bluetooth 5.1 SoC with Huawei’s patented BT-UHD protocol, capable of transmission speeds of up to 6.5MBps. It is based on Huawei’s in-house Isochronous Dual Channel transmission technology for low power consumption and low latency and 365 MHz audio processing for quick and stable Bluetooth connectivity along with accurate video and audio synchronization. The smartwatch is waterproof up to 50 meters.
Connectivity options include Bluetooth 5.1 BR/BLE/EDR, GPS, and features a range of sensors including optical heart rate sensor, geomagnetic sensor, gyroscopic sensor, accelerometer sensor, ambient light sensor, and air pressure sensor. The Watch GT2 has dedicated power and function buttons. The device draws power from a 455 mAh battery and runs on Google’s Wear OS-based Lite OS. While the 46mm variant offers 14 days of continuous backup on a single charge, the battery on the 42mm lasts for seven days.
