Real-world Usage Review:
We have thoroughly tested a unit of the Huawei Watch GT2 and after analyzing the results, we came up with the following verdict:
Performance Quality And Hand Feel:
The KIRIN A1 processor from Huawei has truly proven to be a beast because it smoothly handles all the functions of the watch without any stutter or lag.
The native hand belt that comes with the watch does not feel irritating to the hand skin.
In fact, the hand feel for this watch was very comfortable and it left no noticeable mark on the hand even after using it for an extended period of time.
Display And Battery:
The AMOLED display was sharp enough to be completely visible even in direct sunlight.
The user can also easily see the time and other visual signs in the display even at midday. That’s cool!
Plus, the battery is as good as it promises to be, because one full charge of the battery lasted for more than 13 days, which exceeded our expectation.
Software And Storage:
As the device runs on Lite OS, it can’t run third-party apps. But, Huawei was kind enough to provide all the pre-installed apps and functions that an average user would need.
Although that watch has 4 GB of internal storage, you can only use about 2.2 GB to store your music.
Protection And Water-resistance :
The device is encased in a stainless steel frame. So, it is protected from low to mid-level drops.
Additionally, we tested it by wearing it on all sorts of activities such as working out, jogging, or swimming. And, it could handle all those environments with an amazing ease.
The water resistance was satisfactory too. Even during swimming, it was well protected from water. That’s awesome!
Although there are certain cons such as NFC not working outside China, at a $200 price point, we think this watch packs enough features to satisfy anyone.
Above all, we are happy to see Huawei doing well in the smartwatch market.
