Rumour has it that Huawei will unveil the Watch GT 2 Pro alongside the Mate 40 series. The smartwatch has recently been certified by multiple regulatory bodies, confirming the presence of a 455 mAh battery that will charge wirelessly at up to 10 W.

It has been a few weeks since @RODENT950 and @Sudhanshu1414 spotted a device Watch GT 2 Pro at the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), prompting speculation that Huawei is planning to release a successor to last year's Watch GT 2. Now the smartwatch has been certified by the FCC and SIRIM, which have affirmed that the device carries the model number VID-B19.

Additionally, the Watch GT 2 Pro has a 455 mAh battery, which is the same capacity as the one in the Watch GT 2 Pro. However, it seems that Huawei has switched away from the pogo pin charger that it paired with the Watch GT 2. The charger for the Watch GT 2 Pro retains the puck design of its predecessor, but it appears to support wireless charging. Certification documents list this charger as supporting wireless charging, which would be one improvement that the Watch GT 2 Pro has over the Watch GT 2.

Other information about the Watch GT 2 Pro remains sparse at this stage. Gizchina expects Huawei to unveil the smartwatch alongside the Mate 40 series, which is rumoured to be arriving in October. However, this assertion appears to be based on the fact that Huawei dovetailed the announcement of the Mate 30 series with the Watch GT 2 in September 2019.
