Huawei Smartwatch GT 2 Review: Design and Interface

Smartwatch looks quite different and attractive in any other gadget or wearable device. The Watch GT 2 also looks quite good and strong here. This watch offered with circular shape, metal bezel is also very thin. There is also a slight border around the dial but it does not notice much.

Huawei Watch GT 2 uses good quality AMOLED display. The colors in the watch are quite good. The glass on the dial easily withstands scratches in daily use. Apart from this, you can also use the watch for a depth of 50 meters for 30 minutes, which is a good feature for this price point.

You are given 2 buttons in the right side of the watch. In this you can open the main menu with the top button, while any preset watch function can be used with the down button. You can also change the clock face apart from tracking different activities with left and right swipe on the dial.

The watch can easily connect with the Huawei Health application and Huawei Mobile Service on both Android or iOS platforms. There is no problem in downloading both applications and we have easily used it with Realme and Vivo phones. Samsung phones running Android 10 Upper have some problems but Huawei will fix it soon with OTA update.

The user interface is quite good which is also easy in navigation. In the watch you get limited custom face but you can still use the images in the gallery of the phone as a watch face.

We have its Matte Black Variant which is offered with a rubber strap at a price of Rs 15,990. Titanium Gray color option is offered with metal strap and pebble brown leather strap at a price of Rs 21,990. In GT 2 you have to use standard 22mm strap which can be replaced by other straps as well.

All these color options are mentioned for 46mm dial size. At the launch, Huawei had said that 42mm variant will be launched soon but it is not clear yet when it will be launched this best budget android smartwatch 2020 GT 2. The price of Honor MagicWatch 2 is slightly lower, in which the features are almost the same but the premium does not come as you get in GT 2.

Huawei Smartwatch GT 2 Review: Activity Tracking

In Watch GT 2, you have 13 different running courses, walking mode, besides the support to track activities like cycling, hiking, climbing, eliptical and swimming. Out of these, walking and running remain at the top of almost everyone’s priority list and this is why Watch GT 2 users will love it a lot.

Personally, I was expecting a track-jump count here as well, but it is not available in it. You can use the ‘Ohters’ workout mode for the meds not given in the watch. It will continuously track your heart rate and calorie burn during workouts.

Sleep tracking works quite well in watch. Also, Huawei’s Health Application gives you a very good sleep monitor report.

Huawei Smartwatch GT 2 Review: Smart Features

Apart from activity tracking, you can also do a lot of extras with the Watch GT 2. Before the use of the watch, Bluetooth calling seemed to me a very strange feature which according to me would not work properly but the Watch GT 2 proved it wrong. Calling or receiving with a watch tied to your hand proves to be a very good experience.

Storage is also provided in GT 2, which can be said to be a very good feature for fitness centric devices. With this, you can store songs in your watch and can listen to them easily without your smartphone.

Huawei Smartwatch GT 2 Review: Verdict

The Watch GT 2 has not been launched by the company to compete with the Apple Watch or Samsung Premium Watch. Huawei has made an effort to give you a best budget android smartwatch 2020 at a price of just under Rs. 20,000, which I also see to be successful.

  • Nice design
  • OLED display
