Huawei has presented the Watch GT Cyber, a smartwatch unlike any other. Built around a 1.32-inch AMOLED display, the Watch GT Cyber has a unique design that allows people to swap the watch shell out for another when needed. Launching in China before other markets, the Watch GT Cyber retails for CNY 1,288 (~US$177) in Huawei's home market, with its replacement shells priced at CNY 199 (~US$27).

Huawei has unveiled the Watch GT Cyber, the latest member in the Watch GT series. Only presented in China so far, the Watch GT Cyber comes in three variants and two sizes. Specifically, while the 'Urban pioneer' and 'Sporty model' have 47.4 mm cases, the 'Stylish and elegant' edition measures 45.6 mm across. Additionally, the latter comes with a smaller watch band than its siblings, although it is only a difference of 130-200 mm and 140-210 mm. Incidentally, all variants should last up to seven days between charges, or for four days if you use the Watch GT Cyber heavily.

Likewise, the 'Stylish and elegant' edition weighs less than other Watch GT Cyber variants. With that said, all models have the same AMOLED display, which measures 1.32-inches across and operates natively at 466 x 466 pixels with a 352 PPI. Functionally, the trio are identical, with a digital crown, an optical heart rate sensor and wireless charging all included. As far as we can tell, the Watch GT Cyber carries over many health monitoring features from the Watch GT 3 series, albeit without the ability to take an ECG or measure blood pressure like the Watch D.

Arguably the most exciting element of the Watch GT Cyber is its replaceable case. Rather than relying on removable watch straps, Huawei has designed the Watch GT Cyber for it to be removed from its watch shell, as its marketing images highlight. Seemingly, Huawei has taken this route to sell replacement shells, which it has priced at CNY 199 (~US$27). By contrast, the Watch GT Cyber itself costs CNY 1,288 (~US$177). Typically, Huawei takes a few months before it releases new products outside China, as has been the case with the Watch D. Hence, the company will probably wait until early 2023 before it brings its latest HarmonyOS 3-based smartwatch to global audiences.
