The Huawei Watch GT a fitness-focused wearable that's more like an advanced fitness tracker than smartwatch, has arrived in the US. Starting at $ 1
First introduced in October of last year, the Huawei Watch GT is really an advanced fitness tracker. It has a big beautiful 1.39-inch AMOLED touch screen in a 46mm case made of metal, ceramic, and plastic. It features 5ATM water resistance, GPS, optical heart rate sensor, Bluetooth 4.2, and 14-day battery life. It'll track your sleep, your workouts, and then some. A typical charge should be through all-day wear, sleep tracking, and up to 90 minutes of exercise. Huawei says.
Why did I take shots at a smartwatch? They were not shots it's just that they made smartwatches that smartwatch things. Smart stuff happen, is not a smartwatch. Huawei even refers to it as a "smart wearable," so we are clear.
For smarts, all of this really does not look as if they come in. They pop up on the watch in a basic UI, don Very happy from phone to watch and back again. Just be aware of that. This watch is for full-on fitness and sleep tracking, not a smartwatch companion. And that's OK!
I was a Huawei Watch GT for a few days a week and thought it was a fitness tracker. So it looks really nice and wears well, even if it is a tad large. Still, it's slimmer and trimmer than my Garmin Fenix 5, the device Huawei wants to compete against, and is less than dollars. I think this could be a great fitness tracker for most people.
The Huawei Watch GT comes in two options: Graphite Black and Saddle Brown. The black model is $ 199.99, while the Brown version is $ 229.99. Pre-orders open today and Huawei did not tell us when they'll ship.
