Early Huawei Watch GT listing details specs, fitness-focused features
The leaks just do not stop. Some of its specs were confirmed by a report two weeks ago. Then, it was revealed that a proprietary OS would be included rather than Wear OS. And earlier today it was rendered alongside the Mate 20 series. Now, though, in what is the biggest leak so far, the Watch GT has shown up on Huawei’s own website.

Starting off with some exterior characteristics, a circular 1.39-inch AMOLED display complete with a resolution of 454 x 454p is present and will be encompassed by a new ceramic bezel. Also, the remaining portion of the body will be carved out of aluminum. Another thing worth noting is the thickness which sits at 10.6mm, this is 0.1mm thinner than the Apple Watch Series 4. In regards to battery life, a 420mAh cell is included. This will permit a whopping 30 days of continuous use in the more traditional watch mode, while heavy use will still guarantee two weeks. Alternatively, if users wish to activate the GPS, battery life drops to 22 hours.

Moving on to features, the watch includes a new heart rate monitor combined with “TruSeen 3.0” technology. This will effectively pair the sensor with AI in order to better improve accuracy. It should also permit sleep tracking and blood pressure detecting. Speaking of which, if it gets too high, the wearable will recommend activities to lower it. One other feature related to fitness comes in the form of a built-in personal running trainer. However, if running’s not your thing, the Watch GT will support other activities such as swimming, riding, hiking, cross-country, and more.

Presently, it’s unclear how much this smartphone will cost. However, in the small print of the website, it’s claimed that the Watch GT will only be compatible with Huawei/Honor devices running EMUI 9.0. What remains to be seen is if other Android 9 Pie devices will be compatible also.

Its a watch for hikers, travelers .(Sports watch type) Still , I think the concept of Smart watch is pointless.

I want this watch to replace my current Huawei watch 1 but if it is only be compatible with Huawei/Honor devices running EMUI 9.0 ? Then it is not for me anymore forever as I won't buy a watch no future proof due to I change phone every year and use any brand that interested me. Compatible to all android phone is my minimum required.

This looks like a pretty nice device, but I will never understand how the Huawei Watch 1 that was released 3 years ago has smaller bezels than this.

I wish this were Wear OS as well! Honestly, I think like Wear OS and love the apps, especially designing watch faces. Why a smart watch? I'm a big runner and the ability to do stuff, reply to texts, track my running, control my music, is super helpful when I don't need to pull out my phone. But... Looks like I'll be waiting for another watch...

Two weeks of heavy use ? This alone would worth switching from WearOS to a "Huawei OS". However, I think there is a mistake. With a 420mAh battery you could maybe get like 4-5 days of use out of it, but it's still good, nonetheless comparing with Apple's "still the same great 18 hours of use" :)
