Huawei announced the waterproof Watch GT smart wearable back in October 2018 and released it on various markets one month later. However, bringing it to the US took a while, but now the Huawei Watch GT can be finally acquired from Amazon for a full retail price of US$199.99.

While this wearable lacks cellular connectivity, it comes with built-in GPS connectivity and is fully compatible with iOS and Android handsets. The Watch GT features a 1.39-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display with 454 x 454 pixels, 16 GB of memory, 128 GB internal storage, all driven by an ARM Cortex-M4 processor. According to Huawei, the 420 mAh non-removable lithium-ion battery can deliver no less than 14 days of typical use.

Unlike most of its competitors, the Huawei Watch GT runs LiteOS, which is a lightweight operating system for wearables made by Huawei. This piece of code includes custom watch faces, notifications, and sleep/exercise tracking.

Those eager to place their orders can choose between the black/black strap and stainless/brown strap color combinations, both priced at US$199.99. Amazon will start shipments on February 19.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
