Huawei debuted their wearable devices segment on Friday (16) with the sports watch Huawei Watch GT. It features GPS to record outdoor exercise, monitors heart rate and promises long battery life with up to 14 days of autonomy.
Watch GT runs LiteOS’s own operating system, which shows notifications from Android and iPhone phones, but doesn’t yet allow third-party apps to be installed. The 46mm version, which will be sold in the country, has water resistance up to 5 metres and 1.39 inch circular AMOLED screen with a resolution of 454 × 454 pixels.
The body of the Watch GT has ceramic bezel and stainless steel casing. The Active Edition bracelet is made of rubber and can be found in orange and green colors – it can be replaced quickly without any tools. And the style of the dial can be selected through the Huawei Health app, which also concentrates all your health data.
Highlights are the fitness features: It can suggest beginner to advanced running training; supports three satellite positioning systems (GPS, Glonass and Galileo); and has a triathlon mode, which records swimming, cycling and running activities, including transitions. In the app, you can query data such as VO2 max, race completion prediction, and rhythm, cadence, and heartbeat graphs.
Sleep monitoring is done automatically. Huawei says TruSleep 2.0 technology “identifies common sleep-related issues and provides more than 200 potential suggestions to help you sleep better.” In addition to showing the duration of sleep, Watch GT identifies how much time you spent in each phase (light sleep, heavy sleep, REM and awake sleep) and gives a score for your night.
Huawei Watch GT will initially be sold in green, in the Active edition, with a suggested price of R $ 1,499, in Huawei kiosks in São Paulo, Campinas, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia, in addition to B2W (Americanas) online stores., Shoptime and Submarino ), Magazine Luiza and Via Varejo (Casas Bahia, Extra and Ponto Frio). The watch will also be available at Fast Shop and Via Varejo’s physical stores starting next week.
In addition to the Huawei Watch GT Active Edition, the company may launch other wearables soon. Anatel has already approved other 46mm versions of the watch, in addition to the Elegant Edition, which features a 42mm case for smaller wrists and promises a battery of up to seven days. The Huawei Band 3 fitness bracelet should also arrive here. Prices have not yet been officially released.
