Huawei has launched its new range of wearables at this OEM's own Developer Conference (HDC 2020). Its flagship is unarguably the Watch GT 2 Pro, which has titanium and ceramic in its casing, as well as a "sapphire" display crystal. It is rated for up to 2 weeks' worth of battery life and comes in Sport or Classic SKUs.

After quite a lot of leaks and anticipation, Huawei has revealed the Watch GT 2 Pro in full detail. Its maker describes it as having a "rugged" design; despite this, it is apparently composed of high-end materials such as "skin-friendly" ceramic and titanium. The OEM also claims that its display-protection is enhanced with sapphire, as is that of its all-new heart-rate monitor: something that may have us wishing it luck in durability tests.

This crystal covers a 1.64-inch AMOLED screen that can show up to 100 sports modes and 200 watch-faces. Huawei also notes that it can be simply tapped against a mobile device to set a gallery photo as a face, although this will only apply to own-brand phones running EMUI 11 or later.

The Watch GT 2 Pro can also track the position of the sun and moon as well as tides and severe weather warnings, so as to suit users interested in outdoor activities or extreme sports. It is also now touted as a "pro-grade" health-tracking wearable, thanks to its in-house TruSeen 4.0+ heart rate monitor. 

This sensor incorporates a "6-in-1 LED lens" for "more accurate" read-outs. It also does this in real-time and 24/7, in addition to blood oxygen monitoring; stress detection; sleep tracking; abnormal events and heart-rate tracking in the contexts of various work-outs. The Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro comes in Sport and Classic Editions, although they only differ in terms of their color: night black or nebula gray respectively. 

They do vary in price, however: that of the Sport Edition has been set at €329 (~US$389), whereas the Classic is €349 (~$413). These choice will be available from September 2020.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
