Huawei has unveiled a brand new smartwatch, the Huawei Watch GT 2e, alongside its Huawei P40 series of flagship smartphones.
Because the identify suggests, this is not precisely a significant re-invention of the Huawei Watch GT 2, so we would not think about it as a lot a ‘Watch GT 3’, as a lot as a barely tweaked model of its namesake. And it is rather, very comparable.
The Huawei Watch GT 2e differs from its predecessor principally by way of design, whereas the software program is strictly the identical. There are a number of extra sports activities modes although, together with climbing and skateboarding – Huawei says there are actually 100.
The brand new watch is designed to look extra ‘dynamic’ based on Huawei. It is acquired a ‘hid crown design’ so the crowns are loads smaller and squarish, the band has loads of perforations making it fairly breathable, and the bezel has radial patterns. The physique is constructed into the strap, so you’ll be able to’t swap out the strap for a special one.
A number of the options are the identical as on the Watch GT 2 although, with two-week battery life, 50m water resistance and a Sp02 monitor for monitoring your blood oxygen ranges. Auto detection for workouts is new although.
We do not but know when the Huawei Watch GT 2e will probably be launched, whereas the one official pricing we have been informed is €199, which is roughly $220 / £180 / AU$360, which suggests the Watch GT 2e may have an analogous launch worth to the Watch GT 2, which got here out for £179 (roughly $230 / AU$340). That gadget is barely older now although, so the worth has gone down just a little.
It is value stating Huawei successfully already has a Watch GT 2 imitator, within the form of the Magic Watch 2 made by sub-brand Honor, however this new wearable could be helpful for sporty individuals who need a watch with a extra streamlined design.
