Alongside the Mate 30 Pro flagship smartphone, Huawei has unveiled a new smartwatch successor to its beloved Watch GT. Here’s what you need to know about the Huawei Watch GT 2.
The Watch GT 2 includes a greater focus on fitness and health-tracking features, with GPS for sports tracking, support for 8 outdoor workouts(running, walking, climbing, hiking, trail running, cycling, open water, triathlon), and 7 different indoor workouts (walking, running, cycling, swimming pool, free training, elliptical machine, rowing machine).
The Watch GT 2 will come in two variations: a 46mm version (similar to the original Watch GT, with a 1.39-inch 454 x 454 AMOLED display) and a 42mm edition (with a more minimalist design and a 1.2-inch 390 x 399 AMOLED screen).
