There’s no relief from the repercussions of a tightened US trade ban, but amid the odds being stacked against it, Huawei keeps putting a strong foot forward. The Chinese OEM is now releasing new generations of its iconic wearables at Huawei Developer Conference 2020 in the form of the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro and the Huawei FreeBuds Pro TWS.
The next addition to the Watch series is the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro, which carries on duties following the Watch GT 2 and Watch GT 2e. The Watch has a 1.39′′ circular OLED display with a resolution of 454 x 454 and a finish with Sapphire Glass. The Watch GT 2 operates 46 mm straps, and the body is made of Titanium while the back is made of Ceramic. The Watch GT 2 runs on LiteOS from Huawei, which is not really a bad thing as Android Wear isn’t exactly the best option for a wearable.
The fact that it supports proper wireless charging is what makes the Watch GT 2 Pro very interesting. This ensures you don’t have to fiddle with proprietary finicky chargers to actually charge the watch. With wireless charging gaining popularity over the years, and the fact that many high-end flagships can also reverse wireless charging, you should have less cases where your watch dies on you and you have no access to the watch’s charger. Huawei also reports 14 days of use and up to 30 hours of GPS use, so the Watch GT 2 Pro looks pretty sorted, at least on paper.
The Watch GT 2 Pro may of course control heart rate and SpO2, as well as monitoring fitness activities. Huawei reports over 100 modes of exercise on the Watch, including dedicated golf and skiing modes. There’s also an offline navigator which will be useful for trekking and other runs when paired with the Watch GT 2 Pro’s GPS. You are also directed by the outside assistant on the Watch with sunrise and sunset hours, moon phases, tide timings and irregular weather warnings.
Information on pricing and availability for the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro have not yet been released.
Colors Ceramic White, Silver Ice, Carbon Black
The FreeBuds Pro from Huawei takes over duties from the FreeBuds 3. The FreeBuds 3 is Huawei’s first to feature Active Noise Cancelation (ANC), and the FreeBuds Pro coupled this with a design that, thanks to the ear tips, promises improved noise isolation. Huawei reports a noise cancelation depth of up to 40dB, compared to the 38dB depth on the Sony WF-1000XM3, which means you will have an even better experience. The FreeBuds Pro will however be available in the colors Carbon Black, Ceramic White and Silver Frost.
