Huawei Watch GT Hands-On

Huawei is joining the fray with the Watch GT, a familiar-looking smartwatch that, for some inexplicable reason, relies on a proprietary operating system instead of Wear OS. The company is making bold claims about the Watch GT’s 30-day battery life while emphasizing the device’s sports-tracking prowess. Given how much we liked Huawei’s previous watches, I was excited by its latest attempt.

    Using it for about a month. Works great and fast (no lags at all). Battery lasts for about 10 days…great!. Weekly updates, bugs repairs, new skins, watches, etc. I also tried it in more difficult environment, like team sports, etc. No issues. Happy, great watch!

    This os once evolved would be the best operating system for smart watches this watch is great two weeks and still %35 of battery not lagging at all and does what would be expected from a smart watch. I love it and highly recommend it .

    Huawei Watch GT… Najdebilnejšie hodinky. Objednal som si ich z Orange. Už mi neukazujú, kto volá a hlavne, že mi neukazujú, ak ich mám položené na stole. To znamená, že ak mám mobil v bunde a nemám hodinky na ruke, tak ani neviem, že niekto volá. Musím pozrieť na mobil. Tak načo mi sú? … Lebo majú dlhú výdrž batérie… Super. Mám ich teda vypnuté a nenosím ich… Viete, ako mi potom dlho vydržia? Aj viac ako 3.587 dní. Paráda! 🙂
