Along with the P40 and P40 Pro smartphones, Huawei today has unveiled its latest wearable that joins its smartwatch family, the Huawei Watch GT 2e. This isn’t technically an upgrade to the Huawei Watch GT 2, but more of a refresh with some differences. The GT 2e is targeted more towards fitness enthusiasts and people who work out a lot.
The Huawei Watch GT 2e has a 1.4-inch AMOLED display to interact with. There are up to fifteen outdoor sports modes along with seven indoor sports modes. Along with this, you also get about 100 different activity and work out based modes that cover everything you would need if you exercise on a regular basis. The GT 2e, along with measuring and keeping track of your heart rate can also record your blood oxygen levels, more commonly referred to as SpO2 levels which is a first for a smartwatch from Huawei.
Running the watch is Huawei’s homegrown Kirin A1 chip which gives high battery efficiency and lower latency levels. Huawei claims that you can store up to 500 songs directly on the watch, so you don’t have to carry your phone along to listen to music while you’re at the gym. As stated earlier, the Kirin A1 chip is very efficient and as per Huawei’s claims, the watch can last up to two days on a single charge which is indeed good for a smartwatch.
The Huawei Watch GT 2e comes in three colors – Graphite Black, Lava Red, Icy White, and Mint Green. Huawei has paid a lot of attention to the design of the Watch GT 2e and has even worked on a digital crown that stays concealed by looking just like the watch body. The Huawei Watch GT 2e will retail for a starting price of 199 Euros. There’s no information about availability or as to when the watch will go on sale.
