Huawei brings HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro to Australia
Huawei Consumer Business Group announced its latest smartwatch, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro. This new launch marks the latest addition to Huawei’s award-winning WATCH GT 2 Series, one of the world’s best-selling smartwatches. With a rugged yet premium design, advanced sports tracking, professional health monitoring, two-week battery life and wireless charging, the new HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro effortlessly combines sports and style.
Professional design that is built to last
At its core, the new HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro is designed to help users explore more. Whether discovering the world around them, learning new skills, or exploring the limits of their fitness potential, the Huawei WATCH GT 2 Pro is the perfect companion.
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro is a minimalistic, comfortable yet robust smartwatch. The watch face is made of sapphire glass and has a harder, more durable, and textured exterior which is scratch-resistant. The watch frame is made from titanium and is so durable that users can feel confident taking it on the most adventurous excursions. To reach a perfect balance in look and feel, the Watch GT 2 Pro features a ceramic rear case which is smooth to touch, comfortable to wear and more wear-resistant.
With over 200 watch face options to choose from, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro gives users many customisation options. Huawei Share OneHop Watch Face lets users tap their HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro to their smartphone to transfer images from their photo gallery, allowing them to truly personalise the watch face. Users can choose different layouts showing tide times, constellation, and moon phases to master the elements as they explore the outdoors.
“HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro is the most ambitious representative of the Watch GT series,” commented Larking Huang, Managing Director of Huawei Consumer Business Group in Australia. “Every aspect of the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro was designed and programmed with the highest level of care. The highly advanced health modes enable users to track their heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, sleep quality and stress levels. Australians can feel assured that the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro is the best smartwatch for the job”.
Perform like a pro
Whether users are getting into new sports or looking to push their performance to the next level, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro offers over 100 workout modes to choose from. This includes new sports modes such as skiing, cross country skiing, snowboarding and golf driving range. The skiing modes monitor users’ average speed, distance, trajectory, cumulative descent, maximum slope, heart rate, blood oxygen saturation and more, with voice reminders to ensure safety. Golf driving range mode is ideal for golfing perfectionists as it analyses the user’s swing tempo and speed, even acting as a private trainer providing visual swing demonstrations on the watch face.
In addition to the new sports modes, Huawei continues to cater for a diverse range of extreme sports, leisure activities, water sports, ball games and snow sports on the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro. Huawei also offers automatic workout detection for six workout modes, delivering a seamless experience.
No matter what sport users are practising, the outdoor safety guidance ensures they are ready to face the elements. Users can track the sunrise, sunset, moon phase, tide times and severe weather alerts. This is particularly useful for outdoor enthusiasts.
Many consumers have spent a lot of time working out alone recently, leading to high demand for virtual personal training sessions. The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro comes pre-installed with over ten running courses offering a guided service to keep users motivated.
Professional health tracking
Huawei has evolved its health tracking capabilities on the new HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro. Heart rate tracking is at its most advanced, as the upgraded HUAWEI TruSeen™ 4.0+ heart rate monitoring technology combines with a 6-in-1 LED lens and sapphire glass back to provide more accurate readings. The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro also supports real-time heart rate monitoring, whether running, swimming, or practising another sport, it monitors real-time heart rate, workout heart rate, high heart rate alert, highest oxygen uptake, recovery time and more. The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro supports 24-hour heart rate monitoring, resting heart rate monitoring, abnormal heart rate notifications, scientific sleep tracking, all-day stress monitoring and blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) detection.
