Published: Last Updated on

Huawei Watch GT is the Chinese company’s most recent smart wearable technology. It is not like other smartwatches on the market that are aimed at outperforming the Apple Watch. Huawei prioritized fitness and health over smartwatch features in the Watch GT. It is a sports smartwatch that can keep track of your heart rate, sleep, exercise plan, and routines. It provides up to 50m water resistance for less than $300 MSRP. As a result, you can swim in open water or a pool while tracking your fitness.

Huawei Watch GT Review: Smartwatch or Fitness Tracker?

Watch GT is a fitness tracker with the appearance of a smartwatch that keeps a record of your health. It’s worth checking out my Watch GT review:

Huawei Watch GT Price and release date

The Huawei Watch GT is priced at $230, while a more refined version will cost around $290. Pre-orders are now open in the UK, but I’m not sure if they’ll be available in the US. While we’re discussing Watch GT try these smartwatches to measure blood pressure.

Huawei Watch GT Display and design

In terms of design, the Watch GT is quite impressive. I don’t wear watches, but having a watch on my wrist that keeps track of my time looks and feels great. The fake Chronometer appears to be excellent and provides the classic look that we see on most men’s watches. The overall design of the Huawei Watch GT is not so unique that I would say there is no such smartwatch on the market. However, the features it offers at this price point are impressive.

The Watch GT’s build quality is solid, and despite its 10.6mm thickness and large 46mm watch face, it fits comfortably on your wrist. Despite its high build quality and large face, it weighs only 42g without straps.

The touchscreen on the GT works flawlessly with fingers and even gloves. On the right side, there are two buttons that help you navigate through the options and menu.

The top button opens the menu, while the bottom menu allows you to set custom tasks. The upper button serves as the primary controller, while the lower one can be used to create custom shortcuts.

Huawei Watch GT Software

Although the OS on the Watch GT is limited, the user experience with the available features is quite impressive. I am satisfied with what they offer, but they could add support for third-party apps. There is a significant difference between Watch GT and its competitors; you cannot modify the OS and must use what they provide. My favorite feature is the sleep monitor, which provides useful resources to help me improve my sleeping routine.

Basic Features that Huawei Watch GT has are:

Sleep monitor | Workout tracker | Heart monitor | Barometer | Compass | Weather | Stopwatch | Timer | Alarm | Flashlight

There are only 11 watch faces available, and new faces will be available only when the company sends a software update. It has a few features like notifications, an interactive menu, and an exercise routine section, which is great, but it could have a lot more. If they allow users to install third-party Android Wear software and apps, it could improve their overall experience with their Huawei Watch GT.

Huawei Watch GT Battery Life

The battery is the Huawei Watch GT’s main selling point, and you’ll be surprised at how long it can last. According to the company, it will last two weeks with a two-hour workout routine check and continuous heart rate and sleep monitoring. With over 13.9KM of exercise and continuous heart rate and steps monitoring, the battery dropped from 100% to 70% in my test. If you don’t plan a Watch GT workout routine, it can last a month.

You might be wondering how long it takes to charge the Watch GT. It took 15 minutes to go from 50% to 100%. That means it only takes 30 minutes to charge Watch GT and it can last nearly a week if you track your heart rate, sleep routine, and exercise on a daily basis.
