The wearable has Huawei’s Kirin A1 chipset under the hood. It is the company’s first SoC for wearable devices, which we’ve seen in the regular Watch GT 2 and Honor MagicWatch 2. Huawei claims the chip can offer high performance without taking a toll on battery life. The chipset is said to optimize the performance automatically for better battery endurance. It also has 4GB internal storage onboard for you to store your favorite music.

The smartwatch offers a total of 100 workout modes, out of which 15 are for professional sports such as swimming, cycling, and rock triathlon. The rest are custom workout models that include rock climbing, street dancing, skateboarding, and even parkour. It also has an IR sensor dedicated to SpO2 monitoring which will help to keep track of your blood oxygen saturation level.
