Huawei, one of the top mobile phone producers in the world, is setting the bar high in the present wearable scene with its second-generation Android smartwatch, simply named Watch 2.
Try not to allow the somewhat uncreative name to trick you, however — pre-stacked with Android Wear 2.0, this gadget additionally packs additional highlights like NFC, independent GPS, an implicit speaker, and pulse screen.
We should investigate the Huawei Watch 2 Sport, and check whether it’s the correct embellishment for the present mobile phone-driven way of life.
Huawei Watch 2 has Moderate Esthetic Design
For anybody that was expecting a follow-up to the first Huawei Watch, this may be a shaking change. Gone is the gold and silver on the watch’s body, and it is the lively plastic form. Huawei Smartwatch 2 Inspired by the stylish plan of moderation, HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 incorporates a great 3D glass face to make the bezel-less vision. The fine craftsmanship is caught in the subtleties of the watch case and its exemplary plan style.
Huawei Watch 2 Battery life
- The Huawei Watch GT 2 arrives with an in-house Kirin A1 chipset, and that does wonders for the battery life…
- The Huawei Watch 2 has a special low-power mode that can display the time and track steps for nearly two weeks on a single charge.
- The usage involved 24 hours wearing with constant heart rate enabled, sleep tracking, and about one and a half to two hours per week of running with the GPS on.
- Speaking of charging, it’s somewhat disappointing that you can’t charge the Watch GT 2 wirelessly. You have to use the dedicated circular pad that aligns magnetically with the pogo pins on the back.
The new Huawei Watch is similar to the LG Watch Sport, but it looks like the better Android Wear 2.0 sports watch. It feels more comfortable and has nearly the same feature set.
The Huawei Watch GT 2 doesn’t just tell the time, it is supposed to be your daily assistant. However, we found the user interface a bit dull and stripped of features compared to other smartwatches.
Don’t get us wrong – it has all the key stuff covered – heart rate sensor, activity tracker, it also calculates stress levels and VO2Max, over a dozen sports activities with running courses for good measure. But that’s basically where it ends.
So that leaves the in-house application as the software to use when you want a proper read of the collected data. It is easy to work with and with plenty of visual queues. The Health tab offers a customizable home screen where the essential stuff like heart rate and exercise records are available. Then there is an Exercise tab that can start an activity right away, instead of bothering with the touch screen on the Watch GT 2 – make sure you are outside, so the GPS connects instantly.
