The Huawei Watch GT 2 looks like any normal watch. A mix of stainless steel and ceramic, it features a 1.39 OLED screen with a diamond coating and is compatible with all standard 46mm watch bands. That’s bigger than the 1.2-inch Huawei Watch 2, but the overall package is slightly smaller and thinner than the Wear OS model .
Huawei is using its TruSeen heart-rate monitor for advanced exercise and sleep tracking, as well as built-in GPS and multi-mode swim tracking thanks to 5 ATM water resistance. So as you can see, it’s big. Huawei says the watch is built for “urban explorers,” but it’s still very much geared toward big wrists. It felt more comfortable on my wrist than the Huawei Watch 2 when I wore it for short while during my hands-on, but the Watch GT 2 is still a masculine watch. Driving that point home: there’s enough space for two digital crowns on the side for some reason.
Huawei’s own wearable operating system. The world probably doesn’t need another smartwatch operating system, what with Apple’s watchOS, OS, Wear OS, and Samsung’s Tizen OS all battling for a piece of your wrist, but Huawei thinks Lite OS will solve one of the biggest problems plaguing wearables: battery life.
Huawei says that with normal heart rate monitoring and 90 minutes of exercise a week the Watch GT 2 will last two weeks. With continuous heart-rate and tri-GPS tracking, it will last about 22 hours. And with everything but the heart-rate monitor and notifications switched off, it’ll last a full month between charges. That’s an impressive feat that bests even the longest-lasting without completely undermining the point of wearing a smartwatch.
The Watch GT is compatible with iOS and Android via the Huawei Health app,
