Huawei Watch GT features and specifications
Huawei Watch GT comes with many interchangeable strap options, a round dial, a slim 10.6mm thickness, and a 1.39-inch OLED precise touchscreen (454×454 pixels) display with 326ppi.
The headline feature is its 2-week battery life with a varied usage of heart-rate monitoring and 90 minutes of exercise per week.
Furthermore, Huawei claims the standby at 30 days if the heart rate monitoring is off and the watch is used only for receiving messages and calls.
If the GPS, heart-rate monitoring, and exercise monitoring are kept on continuously, the smartwatch will last for 22 hours.
The increase in battery life has been achieved due to a dual-chip architecture that achieves 80% power consumption saving, Huawei claims.
The Watch GT integrates TruSeen 3.0 heart rate monitoring technology that is focused to provide a more efficient and accurate real-time personal heart-rate measurement.
The Huawei Watch GT is water-resistant up to 50 meters, hosts a barometer, compass, and altimeter.
