Huawei Watch GT first look: Trying desperately not to look techie

 

Huawei Watch GT first look: price, release date, features and first look at the Lite OS powered smartwatch from Huawei with a focus on fitness.

Pretty design ; Great battery life ; Solid fitness tracking

Lacks smart functionality ; Doesn't work with some popular fitness apps

The Huawei Watch GT is a competent running watch, but its smart functionality needs work.

Huawei Watch GT review

 

A smart watch with a sharp, bright screen and a long battery life... Is it too good to be true?

Superb battery life ; Smart looks ; Great run tracking

It’s begging for music support ; No extra apps ; Baked-in watch faces only ; Huawei app needs either more depth or fun

The ultimate watch for those who think most of what smartwatches try to do is a waste of time. But it isn’t that smart

Huawei Watch GT review: Battery brilliance comes with some compromise

 

Huawei has departed from using Google's Wear OS, instead opting for its own, but has the Chinese company succeeded with its long-lasting Watch GT?

Long battery life ; Great screen ; Information is well organised ; Great all-round performance

Lacking in features ; Screen doesn't have always-on mode ; Low refresh rate makes animations stutter ; Needs more apps and third-party support

The Watch GT has so much potential. With its fantastic OLED display and all the hardware you could need to track virtually any activity, it's an ideal modern fitness partner. However, low frame-rate and no always-on display are limiting factors as a...

Hands on: Huawei Watch GT review

 

Huawei's latest smartwatch doesn't come with Wear OS

Great battery life estimates ; Strong fitness tech

Limited software ; No mobile payments

The Huawei Watch GT doesn't look to be the most accomplished smartwatch, but that's not what the company intends with this device. If fitness and battery life are the most important things for you, the Watch GT may be worth it if the price is right.

Huawei Watch GT review: Now just £140

 

The Huawei Watch GT comes with a proprietary OS and promises unprecedented battery life

Amazing battery life ; Comfortable and stylish ; Has GPS and heart rate monitor

Limited third-party service support ; Sleep tracking is patchy

Still, that’s understandable this early on in the lifespan of a new OS – and the Huawei Watch GT gets an awful lot right straight off the bat. Hopefully, niggles like wayward sleep tracking and limited notification support will be dealt with as time...

Huawei Watch GT ditches Wear OS for longer battery life

 

Two weeks on a charge

Huawei Watch GT review

 

The Huawei Watch GT shows what Huawei can do when it ditches Google's Wear OS and comes up with its own smartwatch operating system. The result is a stylish watch with amazing battery life, and some strong fitness tracking features, but with some...

Excellent battery life ; Stylish, wearable design ; Strong fitness tracking features ; Works with Android and iOS

Not available in the U.S. ; Software needs refinement ; No music streaming or Bluetooth headphone connection

Huawei so nearly gets the Watch GT exactly right. The battery life is right in the sweet spot, the design is solid, and the fitness tracking will appeal to most casual gym-goers. But we’re disappointed there’s no music features at all, and the software...

Huawei Watch GT

 

Huawei's Watch GT is a decent fitness tracker disguised as a smartwatch. While its size isn't suitable for all wrists, its GPS, durability, and long battery life make it a good companion for outdoor workouts.

Sleek design. Excellent battery life. Solid fitness tracking.

No third-party apps. Big for small wrists. Lacks NFC and Wi-Fi.

The Huawei Watch GT is a smartwatch in name only. It tracks fitness metrics like heart rate, activity, and sleep, and also provides detailed insight on the physical state of your body, making it a solid choice if you're looking for the features of a...
