Huawei has unveiled its latest addition to the HUAWEI Watch GT 2 family – The HUAWEI Watch GT 2e smartwatch. Designed to inspire an active lifestyle, the new smartwatch boasts supreme battery life, an enviable design, and features 100 workout modes ranging from traditional sports to more trendy forms of exercise.
A battery life that can last for two weeks
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e smartwatch is powered by Huawei’s first self-developed wearable chipset, the Kirin A1. The chip provides for low-power computing and long-lasting battery life for workout tracking, heart rate detection, sleep monitoring and other features.
Another highlight of the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e smartwatch is Smart Power Saving 2.0, which strikes a perfect balance of performance and power consumption, effectively allowing for a sustained battery life. This feature can intelligently detect user scenarios so as to allocate battery power reasonably, whether it is worn during workouts or in idle status. For everyday use, it will intelligently switch to low-power mode for the dual-mode Bluetooth connection, to increase battery life by about 20 per cent. For heart rate monitoring in typical scenarios, battery life is increased by about 15 per cent.
Unlock a new lifestyle through 100 trendy sports
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e smartwatch supports smart tracking for more than 100 sports, including 15 professional sport modes, eight of which are outdoor sports (running, walking, climbing, hiking, cross-country running, cycling, open water swimming and triathlon), while the other seven are indoor sports (walking, running, cycling, swimming in a pool, free training, elliptical machine and rowing machine).
In addition to 15 default sport modes, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e smartwatch can track another 85 sports, including hip-hop, rock climbing, skateboarding, surfing, tennis, baseball. It also tracks other extreme-, leisure-, fitness-, aquatics-, and ball- sports. What’s more, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e smartwatch can automatically detect six different workouts – outdoor running, outdoor walking, indoor walking, indoor running, elliptical and rower. In this way, users have more reasons to try more sports.
Unibody design crafted with personalisation in mind
These days it’s all about expressing your individuality. This is precisely why the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e smartwatch features an all-new customisable fluororubber strap and dual-colour TPU straps. The dual-colour design gives out a more youthful vibe, while the soft TPU material makes for more comfortable wearing without interfering with perspiration. Modern and sporty, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e perfectly complements its target audience’s boldness and adventurous spirit.
This smartwatch refutes the notion of a traditional design, and instead boasts nearly 200 watch faces for users to choose from in the Huawei Health App.
TruSeen™ 3.5 for heart rate accuracy
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 smartwatch offers smart tracking for users with bradycardia and heart failure. While in an idle status, if the user’s heart rate is greater than 100BPM or lower than 50BPM, lasting more than 10 minutes, a notification will be sent to the user. At the same time, the user can use Huawei’s Health App to check all heart rate alerts and duration, to observe physical health status in real time.
TruSleep™ 2.0 scientific sleep monitoring
The HUAWEI TruSleep™2.0 supports sleep quality monitoring, real-time heart rate tracking, breathing during sleep and big data analytics. With the help of Huawei’s AI technology, it can accurately measure deep sleep, as well as track six typical sleep problems – insomnia, light sleep, mid-sleep awakenings, waking up too early, dreaminess and irregular bedtime. This smartwatch also provides hundreds of sleep improvement suggestions and personalised practices.
TruRelax™ pressure monitoring
Tapping into the HUAWEI TruRelax™ technology, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e smartwatch provides 24/7 pressure monitoring for users, keeping an eye on their mental health status. Users can also relieve stress and feel refreshed by doing breathing exercises, to have a positive state of mind.
Individual single blood oxygen (SpO2) monitoring
A great new feature of this new version of the HUAWEI Watch GT 2 smartwatch series is its single blood oxygen monitoring. This can help users improve their health by learning more about their SpO2 status. The average person’s SpO2 should be 94 percent or higher; SpO2 below 94 percent is considered as insufficient oxygen. The HUAWEI Watch GT 2e therefore lets users know when they should be resting while exercising. This is a particularly useful function in a time when respiratory health is of the ultimate importance.
