Until then, Huawei fans are not giving up hope: is a new Huawei smartphone planned? No, not a new Huawei smartphone. Instead, the company is focusing on wearables. Huawei customers will have to settle for headphones and watches in fall 2020.
Anyone who thinks Huawei is declining because of the strict US embargo will be surprised to see so many product announcements from the Chinese giant. In addition to laptops and true wireless and sports headphones, Huawei also presented two new smartwatch models at its HDC developer conference.
Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro focuses on endurance and many sport modes
Two weeks of autonomy, yes, that’s it. Huawei promises no less with the new Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro range. During the briefing preceding the official presentation, William Tian (Huawei manager for Germany) answered questions from around fifty journalists and announced Huawei’s new wearables.
The Watch GT 2 Pro features a 1.39 inch OLED display consisting of a sapphire crystal, ceramic dial and a titanium alloy case. Huawei highlights the more than 100 sport modes available that buyers of the watch will find.
Golf and skiing are also among the disciplines available. Golfers should be able to improve their shot using the watch. Because the Watch GT 2 Pro analyzes the swing posture during your swings.
During the pre-briefing we also found the highlighted feature interesting for foreign hikers, who can also use the watch offline to reverse their routes so that they have the return route available at all times.
Huawei’s new smartwatch will also offer up to two weeks of battery life, which will be of great interest to some users. The built-in Kirin A1 processor offers fast charging, which should allow the smartwatch to get ten hours of use with just five minutes of charging.
Reverse charging also allows charging via compatible Huawei smartphones. The Huawei watch can also measure the oxygen saturation of the blood thanks to the SpO2 sensor. A heart rate monitor is also a feature of the Watch GT 2 Pro.
The new Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro arrives on the market with a GPS and in the colors Graphite Black, Mint Green, Cantaloupe Orange and Sakura Pink, that is to say in black, green, orange and pink for a retail price. advised of 299 euros.
Huawei Watch Fit: For those who prefer angular watches
Another novelty is the Huawei Watch Fit. The lightweight smartwatch weighs just 21 grams and offers up to ten days of battery life. GPS is integrated, as is the flagship’s SpO2 sensor. Both watches can also measure sleep and stress level. The less expensive Watch Fit will be marketed in colors identical to those of the Watch GT 2 Pro, priced at 129 euros.
My first impression: the two smartwatches could be very successful
Although with the new headphones from Huawei, I don’t see the rationale for the suffix “Pro”, I can well imagine that the Watch GT 2 Pro, in particular, can be an attractive gadget for professional or amateur athletes. . In the many dedicated modes, athletes will surely find what they are looking for and the autonomy of the two watches is convincing on paper. Apple Watch owners know what I’m talking about. A sensor to measure the level of oxygen in the blood, as well as the modes of sleep and stress are in great demand for smartwatches in 2020. A complete test of connected watches will allow us to make final judgments.
