Huawei Watch GT design, fitness focus, and battery stats revealed in leaked promo images

Huawei Watch GT design, fitness focus, and battery stats revealed in leaked promo images
Just like LG, Huawei is sure taking its time preparing a sequel for an Android Wear smartwatch released in early 2017. Unlike the LG Watch W7, which only made its rumor mill comeback earlier today, a prospective Huawei Watch GT has been making headlines for a few weeks now.

Most recently certified by the Federal Communications Commission, this appears to show off its design for the first time today in a trio of leaked promotional materials. One of the three slides refers to the Wear OS timepiece as the “Fortuna”, which is likely just an internal codename.

The Huawei Watch GT moniker still seems like a safe bet for the official branding of the impending wearable device, along with an even cooler-sounding Huawei Watch X.

 

“Outstanding” battery life is one of the key features revealed in these newly leaked images, although we obviously can’t be sure of their veracity. If they’re legit, the Huawei Watch “Fortuna” could be able to keep the lights on for up to 14 days in “watch mode with all features on”, 7 days in “watch mode with screen always on”, and 20 hours in “GPS mode.”

Those are some pretty outstanding numbers indeed, considering the Huawei Watch 2 currently offers “up to 2 days” of autonomy with “normal usage.” Since the Huawei Watch GT is expected to pack an ever so slightly smaller battery than its forerunner, this endurance upgrade essentially guarantees a jump in processing power from the Snapdragon Wear 2100 to the hot new 3100.


Fitness fanatics should also be happy to hear the Huawei Watch GT, which appears to cosmetically resemble the Watch 2 Sport, will support “real-time coaching” and “training effect analysis”, distinguishing between many types of athletic activities, from running to biking, swimming, hiking, and mountaineering.

This watch should be a hit. The new Qualcomm 3100 processor, is what is giving it the amazing improvements in battery life.. Looking forward to test it out. :)

I'm hoping that they release a sport watch and a clean, classy watch like the HW1
