Huawei watch GT smart watch review: a fitness tracker and smart watch with excellent battery performance

Huawei Watch GT is divided into two styles: sports edition and fashion edition.
We can see from the appearance that the sport style is black and the wristband is made of black silica gel, which effectively prevents sweating and damaging the wristband during exercise. The black appearance and silicone wristband perfectly express the word "sport". Through the appearance, we can see the full sense of sport, which can be said to be very vigorous and youthful. This one is very suitable for students who are still in school or other lively young people.
The fashion style is a steel and brown leather wristband with strong business flavor. Compared with the sports version, this style is more "quiet" and more in line with the definition of "fashion". This style looks more like a real quartz watch, so it has to be said that the designer spends a lot of time on it.
There are no shortcomings of the two styles in terms of appearance alone.
Huawei Watch GT has a screen resolution of 454 * 454, and an AMOLED retina screen of 1.39 inches, which makes it possible to wear it on your hand and still bring a constant feeling of visual experience, clear and bright. Not only does it feel like this on the screen, it also uses the classic double crown stainless steel body and ceramic watch rings, plus DLC drill carbon coating, which is durable and durable. The 10.6mm slim body, with lightweight comfortable double-color silicone strap and elegant durable leather strap, can be easily controlled in any occasion.
It has to be said that Huawei Watch GT has really made a great breakthrough in battery life. As we all know, battery life is a common problem in smart watches. In this respect, Huawei has surpassed most of its competitors.
When we use it, we wear it all day, turn off the GPS, turn off the heart rate and only turn on the message notification. In this case, Huawei Watch GT can stand by for 30 days.
When in use, wear it all day, turn on heart rate monitoring, and turn on message notification. Under such circumstances, the battery can last up to two weeks.
When in use, the battery can run for up to 22 hours by turning on motion, recording GPS per second, monitoring heart rate and body data.
Huawei Watch GT runs its own operating system Lite OS. This wearable device operating system looks a little like Wear OS and Samsung Tizen, but it's not that beautiful, and it can't run third-party applications. Huawei seems to have no intention of letting Lite OS support third-party applications.
This product is mainly embodied in sports and fitness. The heart rate sensor GPS is on the back of the body. It also has abundant motion tracking function. The powerful waterproof function enables you to take it to dive in the water up to 50 meters deep. Besides, it also has support for automatic recognition of swimming posture, automatic recognition of stroke times, automatic calculation of SWOLF swimming efficiency index, and distance/time. Intercalorie/stroke frequency/speed and other data statistics. I have to say, it looks like a high-end fitness bracelet.
In addition to the above functions, HUAWEI Watch GT also supports mobile payment, Alipay scan code and NFC bus payment. This function is very practical and convenient. When you take a bus, you only need to brush it with your watch. The Alipay payment only needs to move your wrist.
Huawei abandoned Wear OS system and dedicated its own Lite OS system. This change made it slow and unfluent in the first use. We would treat it with suspicion. After all, this is a very early version of software, but it performed much better in the second use than before. We also saw its progress and development as we wished. Although there are still some shortcomings, it is really very gratifying.
Overall, Huawei has performed very well in all aspects of smart watch products. Including the design of appearance and the diversity of functions. Compared with other smart watches, Huawei Watch GT is more like a watch and more natural and comfortable to wear. In terms of function, especially battery life, there has been a qualitative breakthrough, which makes many fans very happy.
But Watch GT's software didn't leave us a good first impression. If we have to interact with the watch through touch operation, then it needs to provide a pleasant experience. If the experience is painful, we don't want to use it. We never thought about using Lite OS again. That's not good news. We expect Lite OS to improve substantially when Watch GT is launched, and the price is as reasonable as promised.
