Huawei's latest accessories include a Watch GT 2 Porsche Design
Huawei launched a new SKU of the Watch GT 2 Pro to match its new Mate 40 RS, a new flagship developed with Porsche Design with the extra-large octagonal rear camera hump that, as it turns out, is reserved exclusively for this variant. Interested consumers with the spending power to match its epic price-tag might also consider its co-branded smartwatch counterpart.
This Huawei Watch GT 2 Porsche Design has a ceramic base and an upper case made of light-gray titanium. It has many features in common with this OEM's latest flagship smartwatch, such as TruSeen version 4 heart-rate monitoring and TruSleep analysis. It also supports "all-day" blood-oxygen tracking, whereas this up-to-date spec often needs to be activated in the UI of other wearables for each measurement.
This new deployment of the technology may be more convenient, but may also have an effect on battery life. The new sportscar-inspired smartwatch also has a new style of bezel and a custom watch-face not seen in the 'regular' variant. However, it comes at a new price as well: €695 (~US$822).
Huawei also announced new additions to its GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear II series: the Smart Myma and Lang sunglasses, and the Smart Kubo and Havana clear-lensed variants. These new smart glasses have a larger diaphragm for their in-built speakers and touch-sensitive ear-pieces for intuitive gesture controls. They will be priced at €299 (~$343) on their (unspecified) release.
The OEM also had new accessories compatible with its new Mate 40 series. They include an innovative new case with an in-built ring-light that can flip up and illuminate the user for selfies (or general visibility) on demand.
It derives power for this through reverse charging via the phone on which it has been installed. There is also a new M Pen 2, compatible with new Mate-series devices and tablets. They are priced at €69 (~$82) and €99 (~$117) respectively.
