If you’ve been on the hunt for a smartwatch that offers good looks and a surfeit of solid fitness tracking, you’ll likely have had an eye on the Huawei Watch GT 2 which was announced in Berlin at their global launch and at the Malaysia launch alongside the Mate 30 Pro. Well, good news for you lot as the Huawei Watch GT 2 46mm variant is now available nationwide starting today.
The Huawei Watch GT 2 46mm version refers to the size of its watch case which in this case sports a 1.39-inch round AMOLED display sheathed in 3D glass with 454 x 454 pixel resolution. A smaller 42mm version also exists of the Watch GT 2 that is functionally identical save for a smaller display and case.
In terms of style, the Huawei Watch GT 2 46mm veers on the sportier side of the spectrum with a slick and clean metal finish, stopwatch-style buttons are located at the 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock positions and robust water resistance to a depth of 50 meters in the drink.

Under the hood, the Huawei Watch GT 2 46mm comes with a power-efficient Kirin A1 processor, Bluetooth connectivity to pair to your phone for notifications and the like and it has enough built-in storage for about 500 MP3s or so.

Swimming is also naturally part of the workouts that the watch tracks. It also helps track your sleep quality, your stress levels and your heart rate via an underside heart track sensor.
In terms of battery life, the Huawei Watch GT 2 is rated for about 2 weeks of normal use which translates to 24 hours of non-stop music playback or ten hours of nattering away via Bluetooth which is plenty by any measure of the word.
