Huawei‘s latest smartwatch is ready to roll out in India. Dubbed as Watch GT 2, this gadget is expected to hit the stores on December 5. The company has teamed up with the football star Baichung Bhutia to post teasers for the upcoming watch on Twitter. The Chinese company is hinting at a two-week battery life on a single charge, which obviously means it is not based on Google’s resource-hungry Android Wear platform. The Watch GT 2 runs Huawei’s in-house LiteOS. This power-efficient platform is built especially for wearables and other IoT (Internet of Thing) devices. The smartwatch has a contemporary radial dial. The Watch GT 2 comes in two sizes. The Sport Edition comes in both 42 mm and 46 mm, while Classic Edition and Elite Edition are only available in 46 mm.
Despite adding water and dust resistant, Huawei has managed to keep the thickness at around 1 cm. The smaller variant weighs in at 29 gram, while the bigger model tips the scales at 41 gram. Huawei offers a variant of strap options in metal, leather, and PVC. While we do not have information regarding its price, you can check out its detailed specs after the break.
Huawei Watch GT 2 Specifications
The 42 mm model sports a 1.2-inch AMOLED display with 390×390 resolution. The other model flaunts a larger 1.4-inch display with 454×454 pixels. It is a touchscreen panel with support for gesture-based input. In addition to the operating system, the kirin A1 chip powering the Watch GT 2 is developed in-house by Huawei. It is the same silicon found in the Huawei FreeBuds 3. However, this won’t help in the case of American sanctions as Huawei still has to rely on ARM’s architecture.
The Watch GT 2 covers all the essential features such as GPS, Bluetooth 5.1, accelerometer, gyroscope, geomagnetic sensor, and air pressure sensor. To auto adjust the brightness, it equipped with an ambient light sensor. And there’s a heart rate sensor to monitor your health. Huawei hasn’t revealed the battery capacity, but the company claims that the 42 mm model will last up to seven days for “typical use”. The 46 mm variant may clock in over 14 days on a single charge. The watch will ship with a charging cradle. Owing to its 2 GB storage, the smartwatch can hold hundreds of tracks.
The on-board software is compatible with Android and iOS devices. It comes with fitness monitoring programs for workouts such as running, swimming, and elliptical.
