We have reviewed the design, features and functionality of HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e to assess its performance. Let’s see what makes the GT 2e one of the best Huawei watches in 2020.
The build material of Huawei GT 2e is a mix of durable plastic and sturdy stainless steel. Of course, the face is roofed with round-shape glass that provides an overall unified look. The marking around its rim is more aesthetic as compared to the previous model i.e. Huawei GT 2.
At a glance, the GT 2e looks different than its previous model, thanks to its modern style. The round crown has been changed by Huawei, while the watch also features two tapered-edged flat buttons. The most prominent change that we noticed was its straps that remind of Apple Watch.
The straps on Huawei GT 2e are integrated into the body which makes it more snuggly. This is a modish and trendy design that is aimed at the younger generation. You can get it in four colours: Icy White, Graphite Black, Mint Green and Lava Red, and the pin mechanism makes it easy to replace the straps.
Huawei Watch GT 2e comes with an AMOLED HD touchscreen that offers a crisp resolution of 454 x 454. This is a 1.39-inch screen that offers bright, and highly responsive display and responds well to gestures. The always-on display feature can keep the watch awake, this would soak a lot of battery, though.
Huawei GT 2e smartwatch is a perfect gadget that can not only measure work intensity but also keep an eye on your health. The watch tacks number of steps takes, heart rate, daily stress levels, sleep patterns and other health activities. Another unique feature is that you can keep track of the oxygen level in the body, thanks to its SpO2 sensor.
What is the use of a smartwatch if t cannot help you track your fitness activities, right? Huawei GT 2e accurately measures the six major fitness activities: indoor/outdoor running, elliptical, rowing and indoor/outdoor walking. Furthermore, Huawei ensures that it can work below water up to 50 meters, thanks to its 5 ATM water-resistance rating.
Surprisingly, the GT 2e goes head to head with Apple Watch when it comes to fitness tracking. It can measure several conventional and unconventional activities, including running, swimming, cycling, parkour, skateboarding and even belly dancing. What’s more interesting is that you can view an in-depth summary of your activities and the watch also allows you to share on social media.
Huawei has used its own operating system and chip in the GT 2e. The watch comes with the Kirin A1 chip that Huawei has built for small smart devices and it runs on the LiteOS. The 1.39-inch AMOLED is impressively responding and makes an incredible touchscreen. Then there is a 4GB storage and 16GB RAM which not only offers smooth performance but also offers enough space to download and save your playlist.
We evaluated its performance by performing both indoor and outdoor activities. We found it to be an agile and sturdy gadget that offers accurate GPS navigation and lets you take full advantage of its features. You can do swimming, running and cycling while listening to music using a Bluetooth hands-free. Overall, the Huawei Watch GT 2e lived up to its expectations in our performance test.
The GT 2e smartwatch features 455mAh battery that Huawei claims can last for up to 2 weeks. This is a bold claim considering the smartwatch standards and even its own performance. However, even at its maximum usability with GPS and heart-rate monitoring, continuous music playback and always-on display, you can get 6 to 8 days of battery life.
Huawei GT 2e is a modern device by all means keeping in mind its performance and plethora of features. It offers more than 15 workout modes that cover almost every kind of sport and physical activity. On the other hand, it only monitors the O2 level and your heart rate but also keeps track of your sleep patterns and stress levels.
