Update 1 (14/05/2020 @ 08:45 AM ET): The Huawei Watch GT 2e has launched in India. Scroll to the bottom for more information. The article as published on March 27, 2020, is preserved below.

Following the launch of its latest flagship P40 series, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has now announced a new smartwatch — the Huawei Watch GT 2e. The new smartwatch closely follows the design of the Huawei Watch GT 2 from last year and features a circular dial with a concealed crown that gives it a more minimal, yet sporty look. The smartwatch features the same 1.39-inch AMOLED touch display with a 454x454p resolution, however, the bezels are relatively thicker which makes the GT 2e slightly larger overall.

Along with the changes to the main dial, the Huawei Watch GT 2e also features an integrated TPU wrist band which has perforations to improve breathability. The watch body is crafted with stainless steel and is rated at 5 ATM of water resistance. Much like the Huawei Watch GT 2, the Watch GT 2e is powered by Huawei’s in-house Kirin A1 chipset that claims to offer up to 2 weeks of battery life on a single charge.

In case you use GPS tracking for exercises however, the watch can last a total of 30 hours. Interestingly, you can also use the watch to listen to music over Bluetooth and it has 4GB of onboard storage that will allow you to store about 500 songs, but the feature will further limit the battery life to just 24 hours.

Geared towards sports enthusiasts, the Huawei Watch GT 2e can track over 100 different sports and exercises, including everything from skateboarding to rock climbing. On top of that, the watch also features a SpO2 sensor that will help you calculate your VO2Max. Thanks to this the watch is also capable of monitoring aerobic and anaerobic workouts. The Huawei Watch GT 2e will be available in four color variants, namely Graphite Black, Lava Red, Mint Green, and Icy White, at a price of €200 (~$220). Along with the new sports-centric smartwatch, the company also launched a new color variant for the Huawei Watch GT 2 42mm — Champagne Gold — which has been priced at €230 (~$254). As of now, Huawei has released no information about the availability of the new smartwatches.


Update: Huawei Watch GT 2e launched in India for ₹11,990 (~$158/€147)

Huawei has launched the Huawei Watch GT 2e in India, at a price of ₹11,990 (~$158/€147) om Amazon.in and Flipkart. Curiously, the company’s press release only mentions that the watch will be available for pre-ordering from May 15 to May 28. Further, if you pre-order between May 15 and May 21, customers can get a free AM61 Bluetooth earphone worth ₹3,990 for free. We presume the watch will be available through open sale after May 28, 2020.
