Named after grand tourers, a performance and luxury car capable of high speed and long-distance driving, the HUAWEI WATCH GT uses an innovative dual-engine and smart power-saving architecture that enables it to switch between performance and efficiency modes depending on an individual’s activity to maximize battery life. HUAWEI WATCH GT features two-week battery life with typical use including: all day wear and heart rate function activated, scientific sleeping function activated at night, 90 minutes of exercise per week and message notification. Used without exercise tracking in a more traditional watch scenario, the HUAWEI WATCH GT can stay charged for up to 30 days. In a Marathon scenario with GPS, heart rate monitoring and running mode activated, the average battery life is up to 22 hours.

Beautifully designed, the HUAWEI WATCH GT is also resilient with a ceramic bezel design, stainless steel shell and DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) coating. The ceramic bezel undergoes a 23-step process that creates a hardness 6 times that of stainless steel and makes it resistant to scratches under the most extreme environments. Measuring a mere 10.6 mm in thickness and featuring a 1.39” 454 x 454 AMOLED high-resolution display with double crowns, the HUAWEI WATCH GT is vibrant and slim. Available with an Italian cowhide leather strap in Saddle Brown or a sporty Graphite Black silicone strap on the outside and skin-friendly elastomer silicone rubber material on the inside, the HUAWEI WATCH GT is breathable, sweat resistant and comfortable.

In addition to the ultra-long battery life, the HUAWEI WATCH GT features industry-leading fitness and wellness tracking capabilities to inform a healthy lifestyle.

The HUAWEI Watch GT supports a range of indoor and outdoor fitness activities including: indoor exercises, outdoor running, mountain climbing, cycling and open water swimming. Featuring three of the major satellite positioning systems – GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO – and a tracking algorithm, the HUAWEI WATCH GT provides comprehensive, precise positioning for distance tracking. It also comes with a fitness coach built-in with a scientific training system that includes introductory to advanced running courses and FirstBeat powered training effect analyses such as VO2max Fitness Level, Training Effect (Aerobic), Training Load, Training Status, Recovery Time Advisor, Personalized Plans (Running), Calories Burned, and Race Time Predictor.

By analyzing the heart rate with scientific algorithms ensures individuals are exercising safely. The HUAWEI TruSeen 3.0 heart rate monitoring technology tracks active and resting heart rates. Combining innovative PPG optical and hardware design and AI algorithms, the solution can monitor the heart rate of users in real time with high precision. In Sport mode, the HUAWEI WATCH GT can be set up to notify individuals to adjust the intensity of their workout based on a pre-set target heart rate interval. In rest mode, the smart watch automatically monitors and records the resting heart rate of users.

The HUAWEI WATCH GT can also track deep sleep, light sleep, REM sleep, awake, and naps with HUAWEI TruSleep™. Developed in collaboration with Harvard Medical School’s CDB Center, HUAWEI TruSleep™ helps identify the six most common sleep-related issues, and recommends potential solutions to help you sleep better.

Available for pre-order beginning Feb. 12 at Amazon and Newegg, the HUAWEI WATCH GT is available in two color and material options, the sporty Graphite Black with a silicone strap for $199.99 or a sophisticated leather/silicone strap in Saddle Brown for $229.99. Both will be available at additional retailers in late February.
