The watch might launch with the Mate 20 and cost around 199-229 EUR.
Huawei’s previous smartwatch, the Huawei Watch 2, was a fine wearable that ultimately failed to capture a big audience due to an uninspired design and poor construction. To hopefully make up for its predecessor and bring back the greatness of the original Huawei Watch, a new leak has provided us with a lot of details on the Huawei Watch GT.
The render shown above is apparently the Huawei Watch GT Classic / Style. Along with it, there will be another model called the Huawei Watch Sport with a different bezel and watch band. The model we’re seeing here has a large 1.39-inch OLED display, two physical buttons on the right, and a metal casing with a leather + silicone band.
A large 420 mAh battery is reportedly inside the Huawei Watch GT, and thanks to that and a special power saving mode, you’ll be able to get up to 14-days of use before needing to throw the watch on the charger.
Built-in GPS, NFC, and a "swimproof" design have all been confirmed, but it’s still unclear if there will be a heart-rate sensor or what processor will be used. Also, while it’s likely that the Watch GT will be powered by Wear OS, it’s worth noting that the operating system hasn’t been called out by name just yet.
It’s reported that the Huawei Watch GT will launch with the Mate 20 smartphone on October 16 for around 199 to 229 EUR.
