Together with the new Mate, Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro series phones, Huawei presented the second generation of its Huawei Watch GT smartwatch, whose first model was released last year. Huawei Watch GT 2 comes powered by the company's Kirin A1 chip, which promises very low power consumption for longer battery life.
Furthermore, it is the first Huawei smartwatch with 3D glass screen, so it offers a wider display surface. It supports the reception and transmission of calls, as well as the reproduction of music.

An advanced brain and new features
Huawei Watch GT 2, as we have said, has an AMOLED screen with 3D glass that maintains the diagonal of 1.39 inches and the resolution of 454 x 454 pixels of its predecessor. It is available with a 46 and 42 mm case, and the latter has a metal frame around the dial and a thickness of 9.4 mm.
One of the great innovations of this watch is its processor: the Kirin A1, a chip that integrates an advanced Bluetooth processing unit and an energy management unit. With this, it boasts a very low energy consumption, in particular, 10uA / MHz (the company ensures that the average is 30uA / MHz).
This translates into two weeks of autonomy for the 46 mm model with activated heart rate notifications and recording and 30 hours in GPS mode. As for the 42 mm variant, it promises a week of autonomy in the classic mode and 15 hours with GPS activated.
Supports calls and includes more sports
The new Watch GT 2 supports Bluetooth calls up to 150 meters away and allows you to listen to music (can store up to 500 songs in MP3 format). It is also compatible with a total of 15 sports, eight outdoors and seven indoors. All these sports include running, walking, track, cycling, swimming, triathlon, climbing, elliptical...
In the health section, Watch GT 2 includes sleep monitoring and is able to detect cardiac arrhythmias. If you notice a possible alteration (more than 100 beats per second or less than 50 at rest for more than 10 minutes), it issues a notification. All this data is available in the Huawei Sports and Health app.
It can be immersed up to 50 meters deep and includes a torch, a barometer, a compass, and a function to find our phone in case we lost it.

The new Huawei smartwatch will be available starting October with a price starting at 229 euros for the 42mm model and 249 euros for the 46mm variant. It will be marketed in different finishes and with various types of straps.
