Huawei recently revealed the latest installment to the HUAWEI Watch GT 2 series, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e which is aimed at those with a more active lifestyle with a two week battery life, an upgraded design and a wide range of new sports tracking modes.
In the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e, the ‘e’ stands for energy and vitality of its active consumers. This is further represented in its sleek and stylish design and a wide range of features making it the ideal and stylish companion for an active minded user. We got out hands on Huawei’s latest and it blew our minds with its long battery life, performance and health features. Here is why.
A battery life up to two weeks
The first thing we noticed and were absolutely impressed by was the battery life on the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e. A whooping two weeks! Even under normal use with all major functions running!
This is possible because of the Kirin A1 chip, Huawei’s first self-developed chipset for wearable products. This low-power wearable chipset, uses advanced architecture and low-power computing to maintain long lasting battery life for workout tracking, heart rate detection, sleep monitoring and other features.
The gorgeous design
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e is epitome of sports smartwatch design. A bold choice in design resulted in the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e to have a 316L grade stainless steel which is both minimalistic and robust complete with a sandblasted surface for a better finish. Unlike its predecessor, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e has implemented a unibody design integrating the 1.39-inch AMOLED dial of the smartwatch into the strap for a more refined and streamlined look. This also makes the smartwatch comfortable to wear, especially during workout sessions, while also allowing for more accurate tracking data.
Comprehensive Fitness Tracking
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e comes with support for smart tracking for up to 100 sports, including 15 professional workout modes, eight of which are outdoor sports (running, walking, climbing, hiking, trail running, cycling, open water swimming and triathlon), while the other seven are indoor sports (walking, running, cycling, pool swimming, free training, elliptical machine and rowing machine). It can track another 85 types of sports in six categories, including extreme, leisure, aquatics, fitness, ball games, winter sports, rock climbing, parkour, skateboarding, surfing, tennis, baseball and even aerobic exercise as a part of hip-hop dancing. It also detects six different workouts, including outdoor running, outdoor walking, indoor walking, indoor running, elliptical and rower automatically, tracking all the data on its own, while precise satellite tracking allows for accurate GPS and GLONASS tracking if you go for a run outside.
We tried this out with a few free training exercises at home along with dancing, treadmills and whatever equipment we had at home, resulting in accurate tracking of calories, heart rate, steps and a lot more.
Accurate Health tracking
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e is also capable of monitoring and tracking accurate real-time data. Featuring the new self-developed TruSeenTM 3.5 heart rate monitoring technology, accurate heart rate is tracked and combined with AI smart heart rate algorithm, making the monitoring much more faster and accurate. The heart monitoring works in real-time 24 hours a day and even alerts when the heart rate is too high or two low more than 10 minutes.
Meanwhile the HUAWEI TruSleepTM 2.0 technology helps in measuring sleep quality as well which includes real-time heart rate tracking, breathing during sleep and big data analytics. This data is then compiled into eight sleep quality reports with item analysis, including sleep duration at night, deep sleep proportion, light sleep proportion, rapid eye movement sleep, deep sleep duration, number of awakenings, breathing quality, comprehensive sleep monitoring and analysis and also provides suggestions about improving sleep quality. The HUAWEI TruRelaxTM technology also provides 24/7 pressure monitoring, which allows to maintain a relaxed state of mind at all times.
In addition to this, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e is also capable of monitoring blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), which is the concentration of oxygen in your blood and an important physiological indicator for the health of your respiratory system.
Trendy and Musical for everyday life
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e is capable of storing up to 500 songs and even connects seamlessly with other Bluetooth earphones, making it easy to enjoy music on the go. If you don’t have a pair of headsets on you, you can also enjoy music playback from the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e itself. The smartwatch also supports music control, allowing for switching between songs, adjusting the volume and even selecting a playback mode, such as Play in order, Shuffle, Repeat the current song, and Repeat list.
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e also packs some interesting features that make everyday life more convenient. One example of this is the Remote Shutter feature, which when paired with a smartphone will allow users to remotely take pictures through by tapping the smartwatch. It also supports notification alerts from a wide range of apps, has a flashlight option and can even make your phone ring in case you were looking for it.
With a more sporty design and housing powerful features such as a two-week battery life, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e is your ideal fitness and health companion, which also looks stunning. Capable of tracking accurate data for your health, we say this is a must have for fitness enthusiasts and watch-lovers alike.
