Huawei Watch GT 2 Series — Smartwatches with Style for Health-Conscious Aussies

Huawei has unveiled its next generation women’s and men’s smartwatches, the Huawei Watch GT 2 Series — available in 46mm and 42mm versions. Powered by Huawei’s Kirin A1 chip, the new collection supports Bluetooth calling (46mm version), up to two weeks of battery life1 (46mm version), enhanced sport and health management features, and aesthetics to match any style.

Driven by Huawei’s renowned battery capabilities, active Aussies can stay on the move for days alongside the Watch GT 2. The 46mm versions can function continuously for up to two weeks on a single charge, with both the heartrate monitor and notifications enabled. The 42mm options can operate continuously for up to one week in classic mode.

Watch GT 2 Series offers full-scale monitoring of up-to 190 data sources, including location, heartrate and movement, and provides data analysis before, during and after exercise, acting as a wrist-based personal trainer. Aussies can easily boost their fitness motivation in the run-up to summer with tailored analyses and tracking of 15 sports, ranging from swimming to triathlons.

Larking Huang, Managing Director of Huawei Consumer Business Group Australia said, “We’re excited for Aussies to get their hands on the Watch GT 2, which will impress on functionality and style.  The new range offers health benefits across all aspects of people’s lives, from daily activities, to exercise and even sleep. Importantly, our approach goes beyond physical fitness to include mental health tools too. Huawei understands that each customer is unique, and this is reflected in the diverse Watch GT 2 designs that cater to different personalities. The powerful, practical features, combined with a choice of aesthetics, means the Watch GT 2 Series has everything Aussies could need from their smartwatch.

“The original Huawei Watch GT saw over 2 million global shipments, making it the most popular product Huawei has ever made. The exciting features that come with the second generation mean the Watch GT 2 has even more potential to impress.”

Huawei Watch GT 2 Series also supports the mind as well as the body. Huawei TruSleep™ 2.0 scientifically tracks and diagnoses six common types of sleep issues, and Huawei TruRelax™ offers all-day stress monitoring and calming breathing techniques.

Building upon the previous generation, the Huawei Watch GT 2 Series features full AMOLED HD screens that achieve stunning levels of colour and contrast, and a sleek borderless design. The 46mm variants are crafted with an all-in-one 3D glass surface that offers a wider look and feel, while the 42mm variants suit those looking for a more compact device.

Available in Sport, Classic, Elite and Elegant models, spanning fluoroelastomer plastic, leather and metallic straps, the Huawei Watch GT 2 Series suits any lifestyle.
