Huawei releases Huawei Watch GT 2
The latest smart wearable from Huawei focuses on health.
Huawei has unveiled its next generation smartwatch, Huawei Watch GT 2 46mm and 42mm series, powered by the firm’s proprietary Kirin A1 chip.
The previous generation was well loved by users because of its impressive battery life. The watch goes in further, being equipped with Huawei’s proprietary Kirin A1 chipset to further improve on battery life.
The Kirin A1 chipset integrates an advanced Bluetooth processing unit, a powerful audio processing unit, an ultra-low power consumption application processor and a separate power management unit.
The application processor uses the Cortex-M7 processor to achieve ultra-low power consumption of 10uA/MHz. In daily use, the 46mm series can operate continuously for up to two weeks, with both the intelligent heart rate monitor and call notification functions on and weekly usage of up to 30 minutes of Bluetooth calls; up to 30 minutes of music playback; up to 90 minutes of exercise and using the scientific sleep mode at night.
In the classic mode, the 42mm series can operate continuously for up to one week. Both series of watches have greatly improved battery life in the GPS tracked sports mode. The 46mm series achieves battery life of 30 hours under the GPS tracked sports mode, while the 42mm series reaches 15 hours.
All-in-one 3D glass design
It is also Huawei’s first smartwatch with an all-in-one 3D glass screen. The dial of the 46mm series adopts beveled sculpting and gemstone processing techniques to create 3D curved glass and applies individual carving to create concave spots on the dial for a more vivid look. Treated with multiple processes, the curved dial of the 42mm series is only 9.4mm thin and decorated with an extremely thin, fashionable metal frame.
It's also equipped with a 1.39-inch AMOLED HD precision touch screen with display resolution of 454 x 454 pixels, wider color gamut, and ultra-thin design, achieving fuller screen color and higher contrast.
New professional sports monitoring
Sports enthusiasts ask for professional sports data monitoring and all-around experience from their smartwatches. The watch connects with Huawei mobile phone Bluetooth and supports Bluetooth calls at up to 150 meters. The watch also supports phonebook functionality so you can save friends’ contact information on your watch and easily look them up. At the same time, the watch comes with large storage capacity, housing up to 500 mp3 songs. You can easily manage and enjoy music while exercising.
In the sports mode, the watch is compatible with 15 sports, including eight outdoor sports (running, walking, climbing, hiking, trail running, cycling, open water, triathlon) and seven indoor sports (walking, running, cycling, swimming pool, free training, elliptical machine, rowing machine).
In terms of heart rate monitoring, the watch helps monitor bradycardia and heart failure. Unless in the sports mode, the user will be notified if heart rate is above 100 bpm or below 50 bpm for more than 10 minutes. Users can also view the data in the Huawei Sports and Health App to keep an eye on your health in real time.
Huawei TruSleep 2.0 monitors sleep quality, real-time heart rate, sleep breathing quality and uses big data analysis to rate sleep quality. It combines Huawei AI technology to accurately analyze sleep problems and provides sleep improvement suggestions, as well as personalized sleep services and reports to help users improve sleep quality.
It also comes with self-developed HUAWEI TruRelax technology, which helps users relieve stress by recording HRV (heart rate variability) values and providing feedback on the user's stress index. In addition, it also has a sedentary alert, which reminds the user to stand up and move around after a certain period of time.
You can also record the number of steps you take each day, calories burned, and the number of times you stand up.
The Huawei Watch GT 2 is priced at 249 EUR for 46mm series and 229 EUR for 42mm series.
