Huawei Watch GT review

 

The Huawei Watch GT shows what Huawei can do when it ditches Google's Wear OS and comes up with its own smartwatch operating system. The result is a stylish watch with amazing battery life, and some strong fitness tracking features, but with some...

Excellent battery life ; Stylish, wearable design ; Strong fitness tracking features ; Works with Android and iOS

Not available in the U.S. ; Software needs refinement ; No music streaming or Bluetooth headphone connection

Huawei so nearly gets the Watch GT exactly right. The battery life is right in the sweet spot, the design is solid, and the fitness tracking will appeal to most casual gym-goers. But we’re disappointed there’s no music features at all, and the software...

Huawei Watch GT

 

Huawei's Watch GT is a decent fitness tracker disguised as a smartwatch. While its size isn't suitable for all wrists, its GPS, durability, and long battery life make it a good companion for outdoor workouts.

Sleek design. Excellent battery life. Solid fitness tracking.

No third-party apps. Big for small wrists. Lacks NFC and Wi-Fi.

The Huawei Watch GT is a smartwatch in name only. It tracks fitness metrics like heart rate, activity, and sleep, and also provides detailed insight on the physical state of your body, making it a solid choice if you're looking for the features of a...

Huawei Watch GT 2 Review: Similar experience, bigger battery

 

The Huawei Watch GT 2 is a smartwatch that runs the company's own mobile operating system Lite OS. It does not run Google's Wear OS, and it's not exactly like what Samsung has with their smartwatches running Tizen. This watch looks a lot like most...

Huawei Watch GT Review

 

The Huawei Watch GT is a refreshing device; it looks like a classic smart watch but it's by no means trying to replace your phone. Instead, it aims to be a complement, with a focus primarily on fitness tracking...

Good looks with a solid construction + 5ATM water resistance; Near-two-week battery life; Simple, effective OS makes tracking and reviewing info quick and easy; Straight-forward companion app offers plenty of sleep insight and exercise statistics

Consistently stuttery animations navigating through OS; No music storage or playback control; Very limited third-party app support

Huawei Watch GT review: Advanced sleep tracking, GPS, and long battery life in a traditional watch form factor Review | ZDNet

 

While it's not really a smartwatch, the Huawei Watch GT is a gorgeous 24/7 life tracker with GPS and advanced heart rate tracking. It lasts a couple of weeks and over 22 hours when using the GPS tracking capability.

Lovely high quality design ; Bright and clear display ; Lightweight and comfortable for 24/7 wear ; Long battery life ; Detailed sleep and heart rate data ; GPS for run tracking ; Decent price for activity capability

No ecosystem to challenge friends and family ; Very limited smartphone notifications ; No 3rd party app support

Huawei Watch GT review: A fitness tracker in smartwatch clothing

 

The Huawei Watch GT is not a watch for everyone, but it wasn't designed to be. To those it is targeted at, it will likely be appreciated. To others, it will seem woefully inadequate. Despite its astounding battery life, it does have some shortcomings...

Laggy and janky UI ; Limited watch face options ; Some notification problems ; Missing advanced features ; Can't add more apps
