The second version of one of the popular fitness-focused smartwatches, the Huawei Watch GT 2 Series has already gained a tremendous following in the fitness community. The GT 2 provides a lot of advanced technology at a very affordable price point compared to some of the other options out there right now.
With fantastic battery life, beautiful design, and some of the most flexible fitness tracking capabilities available in any smartwatch, there’s a lot to like when it comes to the Huawei Watch GT 2 Series.
For starters, the battery life has been improved by more than four hours compared to the previous version. That’s going to give you plenty enough charge to use this watch for days on end without having to throw it back on the charger, even if you are using it pretty regularly for fitness tracking and GPS.
From a design standpoint, everything about this watch is jaw-dropping. It has the same kind of style and aesthetics you’d expect from a luxury chronograph but with a 3D glass display system that allows for a 100% bezel-free design that looks great (and feels great on your wrist, too).
Much of the power operations of the Huawei Watch GT 2 Series are going to be controlled by the smartphone that you pair with (Android and iOS capabilities are built right in). But there are physical controls on the watch that allow you to take advantage of some of these features if you do not have your smartphone handy.
The internal hardware provides fitness tracking capabilities you’d expect from a lot of the other competing options out there including a heart rate monitor, stress level monitor, time and temperature, music, and other fitness tools you’ll find easy to use.
The lack of NFC support is a little bit discouraging it would have been nice if there were more third-party applications you could use with this watch. As it sits right now the Huawei Watch GT 2 Series is an excellent alternative for those that do not want to spend a mountain of money on more expensive options that don’t offer all that much more as far as features and functionality are concerned.
