Just like the original, Huawei is saying the Huawei Watch GT 2 can give you 2-weeks of battery while using features such as GPS and heart rate monitoring every 10 minutes. A new feature for the second generation watch is Bluetooth calling, which allows you to takes calls from up to 150m away from your phone. You can get 10 hours of battery life with Bluetooth calling. The Huawei Watch GT 2 can also monitor the wearer’s heart rate, daily sleep cycles, and various other attributes.
The battery life is seriously usable (for me anything over 1 week is good) but the caution from my perspective is the non-Wear OS which means you lose out on a big known ecosystem of watch apps. LiteOS does now allow custom watch faces but the question is what is available if Watchmaker does not support it (WAtchmaker supports Wear OS, iOS, Tizen). It could mean you are dependent on how many people are designing for LiteOS faces. In addition to that, I would consider what app notifications I need to interact with on my watch.
I love the round face but for any new watch purchase anyone wants to make, I'd suggest drawing up a list of specific features the watch is expected to have and eliminate for them there. We are not yet where we need to be for expensive smartwatches and most of the shortcomings lie around the battery life in terms of charge capacity but also longevity. These smartwatches do not seem to be designed for drop-in battery replacement like the mechanical watches were.
#smartwatch The Huawei Watch GT 2 has 2-week battery life and comes in 2 sizes
The Huawei Watch GT 2 builds upon the original and offers more design options to choose from. It still brings 2 weeks of battery life to your wrist.
