Huawei Watch GT hands-on review: an excellent smart watch for both your sports and work

By  Bing Hastings 2019-12-28 2563 6

With the rapid development of mobile Internet, the rise of intelligent wearable devices has become an inevitable trend. Smartwatch can also be small and delicate enough under the core of integrated powerful functionality, which makes smartwatch a new way to balance the two, so smartwatch has become a new choice for more people. On April 11, Huawei launched the Huawei Watch GT Active Edition and Elegant Edition in Shanghai. I was lucky to get the HUAWEI WATCH GT Elegant Edition. After nearly a week of use, the HUAWEI WATCH GT Elegant Edition made me experience a two-sided life.

 

Under the elegant appearance is the rich connotation

When I first got the Huawei Watch GT Elegant Edition, the author was attracted by its exquisite appearance. Huawei Watch GT Elegant Edition uses ceramic material to create a bezel, which goes through 23 processes and takes 12 days to produce such a work of art. Ceramics have a lubricated jade-like touch, shining in the sun dazzling luster, which is incomparable to glass. And ceramic has 6 times the hardness of stainless steel, leaving no scratches at the same time, the prominent bezel can also play the role of protecting the screen.

The Huawei Watch GT screen uses a 1.2-inch AMOLED color round screen with a resolution of 390mm 390pm and a PPI of 326, providing a clear and delicate display. The Huawei Watch GT model uses a 1.39in AMOLED color round screen with a resolution of 454 to 454.

It is made of austenitic stainless steel 316L, which has good strength and corrosion resistance and can resist daily sweat. Huawei Watch GT Elegant Edition has two different straps, of which the white leather strap is made of high-quality Italian cowhide, which brings an excellent feeling of wearing after 39 craftsmanship. In addition, the watch is also equipped with a fluororubber strap made of skin-friendly elastomer fluoroelastomer. The author uses a leather strap for office work and will be replaced with a fluoroelastomer strap when exercising.

But beneath the elegant exterior, the, Huawei Watch GT is positioned as an "outdoor smartwatch" for urban explorers, which is the origin of the watch's name GT. What is GT? This is an extension of the word from the automobile, especially refers to the high-performance luxury station wagon, Bentley Continental GT is the representative of it. The two words GT in Huawei Watch GT symbolize that Huawei Watch GT will have excellent performance in terms of battery life, high performance and high reliability.

This is also why smartwatches have an incomparable advantage over traditional watches, that is, smartwatches are equipped with a rich list of sensors and functions at the same size and volume, making it easy to switch scenes and allow users to work in both ways. Huawei Watch GT also uses the industry's first twin-engine architecture to achieve 1/6 of the power consumption of similar products in low-speed engine mode and AMOLED screen display in high-speed engine mode, so that Huawei Watch GT not only ensures high-performance operation, but also has perfect energy consumption control.

As I have measured, Huawei Watch GT Elegant Edition style is fully charged, turn on the heart rate, use scientific sleep and message reminders at night, and still have 38% power after five days of use. This is in line with the official claim that it can be used for up to a week. As a text worker, sitting for a long time has become the author's daily, Huawei Watch GT also has a full scene intelligent recognition function. Whenever the author sits for more than an hour, I will receive a sedentary reminder from my watch to remind me that it is time to get up and do activities. This function also enables the author to get the working state of the collection of work and rest in the intense work.

Work + Sports: experience double-sided Life

Huawei Watch GT as a "revolutionary long-lasting outdoor smartwatch", I naturally take it with me during the Qingming Festival holiday. Although I didn't do too much exercise, Huawei Watch GT helped me a lot.

Is first of all a call reminder and a message reminder, which enables the author to view the content of the message without having to take out his mobile phone in the crowded crowd while not missing the news. In addition, it is to find the mobile phone function, after using this function on the watch side, the mobile phone will send out a tone to help the author find the phone quickly. Although it is a bit shameful to use this feature in public, it is very useful for people who have lost three or four stars.

In addition to the above functions, the most frequently used functions in the past five days are Alipay and mobile NFC bus payment function. Using a watch for daily commuting and travel is really much more convenient than a mobile phone. As long as you raise your wrist, you can pay by card, while using the Alipay QR code in the watch eliminates the trouble of taking out your mobile phone.

 
Huawei Watch GT Elegant Edition experience

The author, as a senior fat house, has never been particularly sensitive to sports functions. But Huawei Watch GT intuitively presets running courses, outdoor sports, indoor running, outdoor walking, mountaineering, outdoor cycling, indoor cycling, swimming pool swimming, open water and free training for users to choose freely.

During exercise, Huawei Watch GT's GPS Samsung positioning and outdoor exercise track function, coupled with various sensors built in the watch, can meet the needs of users during outdoor exercise and travel, such as real-time positioning, route planning, monitoring heart rate status, heart rate rise reminder, non-visible heart rate at night, and real-time monitoring of their own movement status during exercise. And the training effect reminder can also act as the user's sports assistant in the exercise, give the user professional guidance, and let the user exercise more scientifically.

After the exercise, the watch will generate this exercise report, including exercise time, exercise distance, steps, heart rate map and other data, so that users can keep track of their own exercise status and physical condition in real time, and use these data to adjust your exercise plan and amount of exercise. And Huawei Watch GT also has a built-in barometer and compass to provide data such as 3D distance (only supported by mountaineering mode) / altitude / altitude / climbing, providing complete and comprehensive records for outdoor enthusiasts.

The author measured that the road map generated after the exercise is very accurate, and every small turn and pause can be visually displayed in the road map and the generated data sheet. The accurate roadmap stems from the fact that Huawei Watch GT supports three satellite positioning systems to locate at the same time, which means that Huawei Watch GT will receive more abundant navigation information, which in turn generates a roadmap with high availability, accuracy, completeness and reliability for users.

 
Location display

After exercise, take a nap to relieve your tired body, Huawei Watch GT uses HUAWEI TruSleep2.0 sleep monitoring technology, can monitor the user's sleep quality throughout the process, through the analysis of the heart rate of the human body, combined with the movement of the wrist to give accurate sleep time detection, sleep structure analysis (deep sleep, light sleep, REM/ sleep stage identification), to provide users with sleep quality scores.

 
Sleep function experience

This is because Huawei Watch GT uses PPG module design and is deeply tuned through multi-sensor fusion + neural network and AI technology, which can take into account functions such as wear monitoring and non-visible light measurement of sleep heart rate, while providing the possibility to expand the monitoring of more health parameters.

In addition, the watch also has pressure monitoring, which can monitor your own pressure in real time. The author's measured data are quite accurate, and the stress index will rise when the work is irritable. When the pressure is high, 56, the watch will start breathing training to help users reduce stress, adjust their mental state in time, and achieve the purpose of decompression and relief. This is much more useful than saying "Don't be angry" ten times.

Bottom line

After the author's several days of actual use experience, Huawei Watch GT is enough to support the author's work and sports life. Message push, call reminder and sedentary reminder enrich the author's work. Pressure monitoring and heart rate monitoring can enable the author to grasp his own state in real time, while a variety of exercise modes built in the watch basically cover the author's daily exercise needs. So Huawei Watch GT this Wenneng office, Wuneng under the sea watch, can let you experience a completely different two-sided life.
