Features of Huawei smartwatch GT 2
Lets start with discussing the best features of this smart watch.
1.39-inch AMOLED color screen
One of the highlights of this watch is the crisp AMOLED display. LED screens have still not achieved the deep black levels of an AMOLED. Display is really crisp and has no competition in its price range.
WATCH GT 2 offers a highly accurate touch response. Huawei has Adopted a 3D glass screen in a smartwatch which is a new step in the industry. This adds to the visual appeal of this watch
Normally having a high-resolution AMOLED impacts battery life. But In this case, Huawei has managed to provide a great battery which we will discuss next.
Super long battery life
Huawei has claimed that this watch will last for weeks on a single charge. Even though this claim is a bit exaggerated, GT2 still has a very good battery backup.
On A single charge you can easily use it for a week. If you use it properly, you can even go for two weeks.
Sleep Tracker & Heart Rate Tracker
Heart rate sensor and sleep tracker are very accurate on this watch. In addition to sleep tracker it has a sedentary reminder which will remind you if you are still for very long.
You can check your sleep and heart rate data directly on the watch. Alternatively, you can sync the data to your phone and track it there.
Oxygen Saturation Detection
Blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) is one of the sign that shows the oxygen supply of the body. GT 2 supportsSpO2 level measuring. Very few watches and trackers have this as of now. Moreover you will hardly get this feature in this price range.
Apart from the features that we have already discussed this watch has many other features. We are clubbing these together as they are available in most of the smartwatches.
First is Bluetooth. This will help you in connecting your earphones for music which can be controlled directly from watch. In addition this will also help in connecting with your phone so that you can receive calls directly from the watch.
Another Feature is GPS tracking which is very accurate. With this you can see your trail after a hike or long run.
This watch supports notifications from SMS messages, Email, Calendar, and other social media apps. Along with this, you can also use other features like the Weather, Alarm, Timer, Stopwatch, Flashlight and Find My Phone.
Drawbacks of Huawei smartwatch GT 2
While Huawei GT2 has many great features, not every thing is perfect in this watch. There are some weak points also which we will discuss next.
Google’s wearOS and Apple watchOS are the best OS in the market for smartwatches. Unfortunately, Huawei has chosen its own OS. Currently, the app availability is very limited. Although it supports notifications from most popular apps, still some of your favorite apps may be missing.
The ability to use themes and faces is one strong point for smartwatches compared to normal watches. In these watches, faces are limited to 14. Due to OS, you won’t be able to use custom faces apart from what is already provided.
