Holiday Gift Idea 10: Track your workouts with the Huawei Watch GT 2

Huawei Watch GT 2

A smartwatch doesn’t have the same prestige as the Rolexes and Omegas out there, but there’s no denying that it has a lot of features that enhance or even aid in yours and loved ones’ daily lifestyle. Like the Huawei Watch GT 2.

The Huawei Watch GT 2 come in two sizes: 46mm and 42mm with different designs, with the former being the more premium version featuring a 3D curved glass surface created with bevelled sculpting and gemstone processing techniques. Underneath it is a 1.39-inch AMOLED HD (454 x 454 pixels) touch screen.

The 42mm version, on the other hand, looks more feminine with a svelte frame at just 9.4mm thin and a bezel-less design that visually sets it apart from the 46mm companion. This also means it has slightly smaller 1.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen with a resolution of 390 x 390 pixels.

Huawei claims that the Watch GT 2 46mm has roughly 2-weeks battery life, with both intelligent heart rate monitor and notification functions turned on, scientific sleep tracking enabled and typical daily usage. But that goes down to 30 hours when GPS Sports Tracking is enabled. The 42mm version is rated for 1-week of battery life and 15 hours in the same respective scenarios.

And in 42mm.

Sports enthusiasts will be happy to know that the Huawei Watch GT 2 can track up and monitor 190 types of data for 15 compatible sports, providing comprehensive data analysis with a built-in coach function. It will also monitor bradycardia and other heart failure conditions, providing notifications if your heart rate spikes above 100bpm outside of sports or falling below 50bpm for more than 10 minutes.

The Watch GT 2 also features TruSleep 2.0 and TruRelax functions for sleep and daily stress analysis. Besides just monitoring, TruSleep and TruRelax will offer feedback and suggestions that you can act on. To check out how these features work and more, here's our how you can put the Huawei Watch GT2 into good use:-

The Huawei Watch GT 2 (46mm and 42mm) is available from S$268 at VivoCity, all Huawei Concept Stores as well as their official LazMall store.
