Huawei has historically dedicated itself to the relentless pursuit of providing consumers with innovative technological devices. The launch of the new HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 proved that this unwavering commitment does not only apply to their smartphones, but to their wearable devices too. The multi-sports watch, which was launched in South Africa last week, has come with some of the most groundbreaking advancements in the wearable technologies industry. The device effortlessly integrates itself into the daily routines of consumers, making a resounding impact on their quality of life.
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 is powered by the firm’s proprietary Kirin A1 chip and supported by the smart battery-saving algorithm 2.0 mode. This combination ensures an upgraded user experience and unrivalled battery life, as it intelligently identifies users’ actions and adjusts energy usage accordingly, achieving a flawless balance between performance and energy consumption.
The smart fitness watch also boasts some of the most effective sporting features, making it a sought-after fitness companion, irrespective of whether your sport is swimming, mountaineering, cycling or running. The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 is accompanied by three training, sleeping and relaxation features – Huawei’s Tru technologies – that are ideal for fitness fundis or those just wanting to follow a healthier lifestyle.
- Precise heart rate monitoring
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 comes built in with the all-new TruSeen™ 3.5. This ingenious heart rate monitoring technology can accurately monitor your heart rate in real-time, 24 hours day, and even goes further by analysing your sleep quality to improve energy levels.
This feature carries some salient perks for professional and amateur swimmers, as it provides support for oxygen saturation and precise heart rate monitoring, be it in an open water setting or swimming pool. In addition, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 has the ability to automatically recognise the user’s stroke count and style and measure swimming efficiency data such as distance, time, calories and stroke frequency. This clearly positions the device as a must-have for those who often find themselves in aquatic environments.
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2’s heart rate monitor also operates in a variety of other sport settings, working conjointly with the 3D distance compass and insightful altitude, height and barometric pressure data, ideal for all cross-country and mountaineering fans. With over 10 pre-installed running courses, voice guidance and a comprehensive post-training report, athletes using this multi-sports watch can effectively avoid injuries while precisely monitoring their real-time heart rate.
- Detailed sleep monitoring
A fundamental part of any physical exercise is ensuring that you get enough rest, allowing your body to get enough time for muscle repair and growth. The HUAWEI TruSleep™ 2.0 monitors sleep quality, heart rate and sleep breathing quality.
Combine this with Huawei AI technology, and the device is able to accurately identify six typical sleeping problems such as difficulty falling asleep and shallow sleep. The feature also provides hundreds of sleep improvement suggestions and personalised sleep services, such as deep sleep guidance exercises and quick relaxation guidance exercises. Additionally, 8 sleep reports are provided:
ü nighttime sleep duration;
ü deep sleep ratio;
ü shallow sleep ratio;
ü rapid eye movement ratio;
ü deep sleep continuity;
ü awake times;
ü respiratory quality;
ü comprehensive sleep monitoring analysis;
These reports provide solutions in the form of sleep recommendations, which help both sports professionals and amateurs improve their sleep quality and thereby enhance their athletic performance.
- Accurate physical wellbeing monitoring
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 also comes with HUAWEI TruRelax™ technology, which helps users relieve stress by recording HRV (heart rate variability) values and providing feedback on the user’s stress index. In addition, it also has a sedentary alert, which reminds the user to stand up and move around after a certain period of time. You can also record the number of steps you take each day, the calories you burn, and the number of times you stand up.
