Let’s now know about the Huawei Watch GT 2 review.

Huawei Watch GT 2 Review, 2020

Huawei Watch GT 2 comes in a total of 2 sizes. 42mm and 46mm respectively.

Let me tell you one thing that the design of 42mm Huawei Watch GT 2 and the design of 46mm size is slightly different.

If we talk about the 42mm size Huawei Watch GT 2, then it looks like Samsung Galaxy Watch Active with a plain cover.

Now let’s talk about the 46mm size so there are markings around the bezel which gives a sports look.

There are two buttons on the right side of the Huawei Watch GT 2 smartwatch.

It is a little out of the way but it is very easy to touch and press experience.

The upper button in the Huawei Watch GT 2 will help you to get back into the UI. While the lower button will help in assigning any features to your smartwatch.

There is a speaker grille in between these two buttons which you will not be able to spot easily.

Huawei Watch GT 2 comes with a 1.39-inch AMOLED display with 454 × 454 pixels which is bigger than the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 which we recently compared.

Auto brightness is present which changes according to the changing lights so that you will not have the trouble of seeing on the display.

The Huawei Watch GT 2 uses 22mm straps. You can also add a 22mm strap of your choice by replacing it.

The watch GT 2 also comes with a black Fluoroelastomer strap which makes you feel comfortable.

The backside heart rate sensor of the Watch GT 2 is also present along with the charging mechanism.

Like the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2, the Huawei Watch GT 2 does not support wireless charging.

Uses pogo pins with magnetic dock instead of wireless charging.

The magnets on the charger help securely place the Watch GT 2 on it.

Huawei is using a charger of the USB Type-C port. If Type-C port is present with your smartphone then you will have to carry a cable-less.

The Huawei Watch GT 2 is powered by the company’s Kirin A1 processor.

And Huawei has made this chip for special wearables and wireless headphones.

If we talk about compatibility then it competes with Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC. And it is more used in WearOS devices.

You will get support for Bluetooth 5.1 and GPS in Huawei Watch GT 2 which you can use to track outdoor runs.

Huawei Watch GT 2 is water-resistant up to 5 ATM.

Many people will have a question that what is the meaning of this 5 ATM?

[ This means that when the water is stable at a distance of 50 meters below the surface of the water, its pressure does not affect the device.]

So you can swim by wearing the Huawei Watch GT 2.

Apart from this, you can also retrieve calls over Bluetooth.

Huawei runs its own software on the Watch GT 2 which competes with Android 4.4 or later version and iOS 9 or later version.

You can do step and distance tracking in Watch GT 2 like other smartwatches also have this option. It also has its own GPS that will track you.

Options such as sleep monitoring, heart-rate monitoring, and stress monitoring are also available.

To sync the Watch GT2 with a smartphone, you must download the Huawei Health App.

But Stress tracking needs to be manually enabled through this Health application on Android smartphones.

If we talk about the display of Huawei Watch GT 2, then we can also see in direct sunlight.

By the way, after using Huawei Watch GT 2, you can keep the display on for 20 minutes. The display will wake up as soon as you raise your hand.

This Watch GT 2 is slower when scrolling through the UI than the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2.

If you do a quick swipe, again and again, the last one will miss. Sometimes the submenu also delays opening. If you are in a hurry at such a time, then obviously you will get angry.

You can also set the intensity of the vibration for incoming notifications. 

But one thing should clear you if you get any WhatsApp message notification and you think that you will reply to them by clicking immediately, then you are thinking wrong. You will be disappointed

There is not such a clear sound coming from the speaker while talking on the call. You have to be taken near your ears. So that you will be able to hear a clear voice.

I did a 1-kilometer walking tracking test in which the Watch GT 2 showed a record of 1.03km which according to me is acceptable.  

I also tested steps counting in which I had done 1000 steps. The Watch GT 2 showed 995 steps which are also acceptable.

When I did sleep track, bedtime was also a very close record. So overall tracking is accurate.

The charging experience is quite fast. Fully charge the battery in about 1 hour. The charger is also compact and you can carry it easily.

Conclusion on Huawei Watch GT 2 Review: Should you buy or not?

I hope that you must have cleared your mind now whether you should buy it or not.

According to the price, this Watch GT 2 is right in its place. But you should take it according to your budget and your choice.

Hope you like this article of mine.

Thank you all for your valuable time.

Thank You.
