Huawei intros Watch GT Active and Elegant smartwatches, promises long battery life5
You can expect the same 2-week battery life that Huawei Watch GT offers, but if you plan to get the Elegant model, keep in mind that this one offers just 7 days of battery life on a charge. The Huawei Watch GT Active features a bigger 46mm case, while the Watch GT Elegant comes in a smaller 42mm casing.
Both smartwatches include GPS, Bluetooth, accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, optical heart rate sensor, ambient light sensor, and a barometer. They also feature 5ATM water resistance.
In order to obtain the advertised 2-week battery life, you'll have to turn on heart-rate monitoring for just 90 minutes each week, otherwise, you'll have to charge the Huawei Watch GT Active on a weekly basis or even more often than that.
If you plan to buy one of Huawei's new smartwatches, you'll have to come up with €249 for the Watch GT Active or €229 for the Watch GT Elegant. They should be available on the market in the coming weeks and will work with all phone running Android 4.4 or later, and iOS 9 or newer.
