The Huawei Watch GT 2 has 2-week battery life and comes in 2 sizes
Huawei has been busy announcing new products this morning with the Mate 30 series as the headliner. The company also announced a successor to the Huawei Watch GT, which was launched earlier this year. The Watch GT series features Huawei’s own LiteOS instead of Wear OS. The Huawei Watch GT 2 builds upon the original and offers more design options to choose from.
We previously saw the Huawei Watch GT 2 in a leaked image and learned about some of the specifications. Huawei has indeed created two different sizes this time around: 42mm and 46mm. The 46mm model is similar in size to the original Watch GT and it has a 1.39-inch AMOLED display with 454 x 454 resolution. The smaller 42mm model has a 1.2-inch AMOLED display with 390 x 390 resolution.
Just like the original, Huawei is saying the Huawei Watch GT 2 can give you 2-weeks of battery while using features such as GPS and heart rate monitoring every 10 minutes. A new feature for the second generation watch is Bluetooth calling, which allows you to takes calls from up to 150m away from your phone. You can get 10 hours of battery life with Bluetooth calling.
The Huawei Watch GT 2 has 2GB of storage, which is enough to store up to 500 songs for offline listening. Speaking of which, the watch has a built-in speaker. Offline music is great for workouts and Huawei has included 15 sports for fitness tracking. Running, walking, hiking, biking, and more for outdoor enthusiasts, and treadmill runs, cycling, swimming, elliptical training, and more for indoors.
As mentioned, the Huawei Watch GT 2 is running LiteOS, which is a pretty minimal watch OS. It recently gained the ability to add custom watch faces. Powering the device is the Kirin A1 processor, which Huawei says should provide more stable Bluetooth connections. Pricing and availability were not shared at the event, however, the original launched starting at $199. We expect similarly competitive pricing.
