Huawei Launches the Watch GT 2 With Kirin A1 Chipset

Huawei

Huawei launched the much-anticipated Mate 30 line today and, alongside it, the Vision TV and also the Watch GT2 smartwatch.

The smaller and lighter 42mm smartwatch has a 1.2 inch OLED display with a 390 x 390 resolution and a 20mm strap. The 46mm smartwatch on the other hand has a 1.39 inch OLED display with a 454 x 454 resolution and a 22mm strap, much like the 2018 watch GT. 

Both smartwatches run on the Kirin A1 processor -which Huawei introduced to us during IFA- and feature Bluetooth 5.1, GPS and optical heart rate sensors. 

They have a 5ATM water resistance rating which means they will do just fine at depths of 50 meters for up to 10 minutes at a time. 

If your watch rests 150 meters away from your phone you will now be able to take calls from your wrist thanks to the Watch GT 2’s integrated microphone and speaker. While that might impact your battery quite a bit, if you don’t make the calls a habit, you will be able to stretch out the battery to up to 14 days. With GPS mode on, you’ll get 30 hours while music playback rests at 24. 

In sports mode, the Watch GT 2 can be used to track 15 types of sporting activities, including eight outdoor activities (running, walking, hiking, trail running, cycling, swimming, triathlon) and seven indoor sports (walking, running, cycling, swimming in the pool, body training and using an elliptical and rowing machine). For these sports the smart watch offers complete monitoring of more than 190 data types.

The new smartwatches will arrive with a price tag of €229 (around $253)  for the 42mm model and €249 (~$275) for the 46mm model.
