By  Gwenni Haller 2020-01-06 2071 1

On September 26th, Huawei officially launched Huawei Watch GT 2 in Shanghai. I was lucky to get the fashion model of Huawei Watch GT 2 in advance. After using it for a period of time, I would like to share the review about this product. No one can judge a product only from the appearance, and the inherent product properties need to be carefully tasted by the user. only in this way can we discover the sudden brilliance of the designer at the beginning of the design.

 
Huawei Watch GT 2

Huawei Watch GT 2, as the second generation GT product launched by Huawei, has been further innovated on the basis of the first generation, introducing more powerful health functions and appearance design, and has been loved by many consumers. Take several friends around me, for example, originally had nothing to do with Huawei Watch GT 2, but a press conference, one after another began to discuss this product, and "threatened" to start. And this is not just what happened around the author, in many people, it is very likely that they have also had such an experience.

Next, let's get close to Huawei Watch GT 2.

Interpretation of minimalism in Integrated Design

No matter what the product is, the design can often influence people's first impression of it, if the appearance is not good-looking, then a considerable number of people may eliminate the idea that they want to try it. Especially for watches, which are often linked to their own identity and temperament, and have their own facade symbol.

Huawei Watch GT 2 inherits the classic design of the previous generation, and uses the design method of integrated 3D glass surface to make the whole surface vision bigger, realizing the design of similar comprehensive screen. The 3D curved glass made by gem processing technology, combined with the sculpture technology of bevel cutting, can highlight the character of perseverance and wear it on the wrist, which can be well integrated with users and create an integrated matching experience. On the oblique section of the mirror, the orderly timing also implies that you should have a sense of time and not be a procrastinator.

As the first window for Huawei Watch GT 2 to interact with users, the screen plays an important visual role. Huawei Watch GT 2 uses a 1.39in AMOLED HD precision touch screen with a screen resolution of 454 to 454, which gives a clearer display without graininess and a more accurate touch when the user looks at the watch. In addition, this screen also has a wider color gamut and fuller color, which enables it to display a colorful and richly designed dial, giving users a pleasing experience.

And compared with the previous generation, Huawei Watch GT 2 also added a dial market function, you can choose more styles of dial, as long as you like can be used by yourself. With such a design, then users can make their own choice in the market, partial business style or fashion style, partial card ventilation or partial simple style, users can all decide by themselves, and the playability is very strong.

And on the basis of changing the dial, Huawei Watch GT 2 also supports a touch to set the background of the dial, transmit your favorite photos to the watch via mobile phone, and then set it as the background, which is of great significance. For example, setting your baby as the background, taking a picture of yourself and your lover as the background, and raising your hand, you can see the person you care about most. Through the design of these details, Huawei Watch GT 2 allows technology to show the temperature of love.

Just like the previous generation, why is Huawei Watch GT 2 named after GT? In fact, GT means high-performance luxury station wagon, which represents high performance and high reliability. With the changes of the times, when GT appears on Huawei Watch GT, it means that it will have excellent performance in terms of battery life, performance and reliability. This time, GT 2 will be further upgraded in all aspects, bringing a better experience for users.

The performance of self-developed chip blessing is better

Huawei Watch GT 2 is equipped with Huawei's first self-developed wearable chip Kirin A1, which not only achieves ultra-low power, but also passes the world's first Bluetooth dual-mode 5.1 certification, which has the advantage of faster and more stable connection. At the same time, with intelligent power-saving algorithm 2.0 mode, Huawei 2 can also ensure a strong battery life experience under the work of multi-sensors such as exercise, music, intelligent heart rate, sleep monitoring and so on.

After testing, the battery life of Huawei Watch GT 2 can reach two weeks in a typical usage scenario. After a week of use, the remaining power is about 55%, which can provide users with a more balanced battery life experience. However, in a typical scenario, if you are a sports enthusiast and have more than an hour of running every day, then the battery life will be shortened to some extent, but it can provide us with the most comprehensive functions. Generally speaking, although the total duration does not change much compared with the previous generation, but can use more functions in a specific period of time, isn't this a way to extend the battery life?

In addition to the improvement in power consumption, Kirin A1 also has excellent anti-jamming capability, reducing the year-on-year delay by 30% and increasing the transmission rate by 2.8 times, which can bring lossless HD sound quality, which is also the hardware basis for Huawei Watch GT 2 to support Bluetooth calls and local music playback. With the addition of Bluetooth call and music playback function, we have more scenes of using Huawei Watch GT 2, such as when working out in the gym, even if the mobile phone is not on us, we can make Bluetooth calls through a watch, which is very convenient. When you are tired of training, it is also a good choice to use Huawei Watch GT 2 to play a piece of music you like.

Medically speaking, one of the major causes of these conditions is the lack of blood oxygen saturation.

From the perspective of health, Huawei Watch GT 2's oxygen saturation detection function can provide scientific detection for high-intensity mental workers, people with hypoxia in mountain / plateau environment, elderly people, and snorers, thus reminding users how to change the status quo and make them healthier.
