After Huawei launched its more exciting flagship duo, they also added two new smartwatches to their Huawei Watch GT family. Dubbed the Watch GT Active and the Watch GT Elegant, both have the same impressive battery life. The design was the major changed factor for the two. This should help them capture a wider audience – for those who didn’t really like their old offerings. They have sold over a million units since its introduction last year, and this should only but add to their bragging rights.
Huawei Watch GT Active
The Watch GT Active edition comes with a 1.39-inch 454×454 resolution AMOLED display. Its watch face measures in at 46mm, while the battery life is quoted at 2 weeks. Well, 2 weeks of “typical use” includes using the watch daily with the continuous heart rate scanner and “scientific sleeping function” every night. Huawei also claims, apart from these functions, they accounted for 90 minutes of exercise per week alongside all your notifications. Strap options for this one include Orange and Dark-green.
Huawei Watch GT Elegant edition
As for the Elegant version, as long as battery life is concerned, you will have to charge your watch once a week. And that is also under the circumstances we mentioned earlier. Huawei adds you can extend your charging intervals to a month. Given you only use it as a timekeeper and turn off all those extra modes. The Watch GT Elegant has a smaller 42mm watch face with a 1.2-inch 390×390 AMOLED panel.
The Elegant edition is available in Magic Pearl White and Tahitian Magic Black pearl alongside a ceramic bezel option. As for straps, you can get it in White or Black. This watch, in general, looks a lot different and should succeed in capturing a wider range of audience. As the name suggests elegant, this could be a favorite among people who barely considered a smartwatch in the past.
These new smartwatches also get an all-new Triathlon mode. Basically, this is an exercise mode that includes open water swimming, outdoor cycling, and outdoor running. The watches will record all your said activities from start to finish including your transition times. The Watch GT Classic and Sports will also get this feature through a software update in the near future.
Finally, features like Bluetooth, GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope, ambient light sensor, optical heart rate sensor, barometer, and magnetometer come built into these tiny devices. Protecting those internal is the 5 ATM water resistance protection. As for supported devices, they will run on Android 4.4 and up or anything above iOS 9.
Pricing starts at around $280 for the Watch GT Active and $260 for the Elegant edition.
