As a brand that devotes itself to technological innovations based on consumer demands, Huawei has recently released its next generation device, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2. This multi-sports watch comes jam packed with some of the latest technological advancements, putting Huawei ahead of the rest, as it continues on its path of transcending the boundaries of what you’d expect from a wearable.

The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 has unrivalled battery life due to the Kirin A1 chip’s ultra-low power consumption capability. It is also Huawei’s first sportswatch with an all-in-one 3D glass screen –creating a wider, boundless display – and has Bluetooth calling and music playback functionalities. Moreover, this new multi-sports fitness device delivers more sports modes with richer programmes and better monitoring, making it ideal for people who love sport and the pursuit of quality of life.

1.       The Huawei Kirin A1: impressive power that’s energy efficient

The new HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 comes built in with the world’s first BT 5.1 & BLE 5.1 wearable chip, which boasts simultaneous support of the HUAWEI TWS headsets and wearable devices. It holds an advanced Bluetooth processing unit, a powerful audio processing unit, an ultra-low power application processor and an independent power management unit, all within a mere 4.3mm*4.4mm. The Huawei Kirin A1’s ultra-energy efficient Cortex-M7 processor has achieved a maximum consumption rate of 10uA/MHz – which sits well below the industry’s 30uA/MHZ power consumption level. This enables the device to achieve the perfect combination of advanced performance and ultra-energy efficiency.

2.       Smart battery saving algorithm 2.0

The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 has also been upgraded from its predecessor in terms of software, with an all-new smart power-saving algorithm 2.0 mode. It can intelligently identify the user’s actions in different situations, such as standing, wearing, or sport scenarios, and adjusts energy usage for a perfect balance between performance and energy consumption. During standard daily use, endurance increases by 20% with dual Bluetooth smart energy saver mode. Similarly, battery life improves by 15% during smart heart rate monitoring. This enables the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 46mm series to last two weeks when:

Ø  Worn 24 hours a day with heart rate monitoring enabled;

Ø  HUAWEI TruSleep™ 2.0 is enabled;

Ø  Working out for 90 minutes every week (GPS enabled);

Ø  Screen is turned on 200 times a day

Ø  Calling for 30 minutes every week

Ø  Playing music for 30 minutes every week

3.       A precise, high definition touch screen for crystal-clear clarity

With its 1.39-inch precise HD touch screen, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 46mm reaches up to 454×454 resolution, delivering a crystal clear image. This wearable also uses an AMOLED HD screen, which provides a wider gamut, richer chromaticity and brighter colour, boasting contrast and colour vibrancy that surpasses what’s typically seen on a TV. This improves colour display and provides users with the ultimate visual experience.

4.       A professional sports device: up to 15 professional sports modes

The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 boasts an impressive 15 sporting modes, including 7 types of outdoor activities – like hiking, running and cross country – and 7 indoor activities, including the elliptical machine, rowing machine and treadmill. The device tracks your activity from all of the listed sports, and uploads it onto the Huawei Health App. Both Android and iOS users can easily download this app to sync with the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 and begin saving and retrieving their fitness data.

5.       Dual satellite system for accurate GPS tracking

Employing the use of a confidently precise GPS, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 uses a dual satellite system for accurate and clear positioning. The device is able to search for a large number of satellites, providing complete accuracy in location data.  The GPS adopts a precise trajectory algorithm, enabling one-to-one trajectory optimisation in complex terrains and locations. 

6.       Advanced heart rate monitoring capabilities

Combine the Cortex-M7’s powerful multi-sensors with the capacitive sensor, optical heart rate sensor and an range of others – like the accelerometer sensor and six axis sensor – and it is becomes easy to understand why the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 is able to provide users with the most accurate body recognition and monitoring capabilities. Because of this, the device completely transcends the status quo of the wearable devices industry.

7.        Sleep monitoring and improvement

The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 goes further than just tracking your physical activities and movements during sports and strenuous exercises. It also comes built in with the Huawei TruSleep™ 2.0, a useful feature that allows you to monitor sleep quality, real-time heart rate and sleep breathing quality. It also provides big data analysis to analyse sleep problems and provide professional suggestions to improve sleeping patterns.
