Smartwatches always were different from traditional classic watches, be it terms of design or functionality. However, there have been attempts by either segments to try and merge together. Huawei’s latest high-end smartwatch, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro Moonphase collection, brings all of this together, taking the next step of smartwatch evolution, aiming to give its users a premium look and feel with smart and powerful technology to keep them on their toes. The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro impresses on all fronts, here is how.
The Moon Phase Collection and premium design ID
A premium feature seen more on high-end classic watches, a Moon Phase Collection is usually tied to luxury classic watches. Simply put, a moon phase is essentially the lighted part of the moon visible in the night sky. In earlier days, this was primarily related to navigation and travelling, however, today it has become one with elegant and luxurious design. Huawei has implemented the moon phase collection into its new HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro to align with its premium and high-end design. Additionally, with the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro Moon Phase Collection, users can easily observe tide times, astronomy and moon phase on their wrists, aiding in easier exploration. The watch face will also display the time of sunrise and sunset every day, along with 8 moon phases.
The luxury elements of the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro does not end there, thanks to its premium design which is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also contributes to the durability of the smartwatch. This is mainly attributed to its titanium body and ceramic back shell, which adds a luxury touch to the smartwatch and further enhances durability. This is further complemented by the scratch resistant sapphire glass for the 1.39inch AMOLED display. The display can be further customized with a wide range of watch faces to choose from. However, if you want to a more personal touch, you can use the One Hop Watch Face feature* which allows for seamless setting of any image from your Huawei smartphone as the watch face with a single tap.
2 Week Battery
Huawei products are known for their battery life, a trend that is seen from its smartphones onwards and even to all iterations of its WATCH GT series. The new HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro Moon Phase Collection continues in this trend, packing in a 2 week long battery on a single charge. Users can also wirelessly charge the smartwatch, where a five-minute charge gives it up to 10 hours of use. The smartwatch also supports reverse wireless charging with compatible Huawei smartphones.
Intelligent Health Management
Huawei’s smartwatch series have always packed a wide range of health management features and the new HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro Moon Phase Collection is no different, albeit with a few upgrades. This is mainly in the HUAWEI TruSeen ™ 4.0+ heart rate monitoring technology, which accurately monitors the users’ heart rate through innovative light path results. This is made possible by a 6-in-1 LED lens to better converge light, allowing the light to penetrate through blood, which when paired with AI smart heart rate algorithms, brings continuous, rapid and accurate heart rate monitoring results in real time, or even 24 hours a day. The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro is also capable of monitoring blood oxygen levels (SpO2) which allows users to better understand their physical condition. The health management features extend to sleep monitoring with the HUAWEI TruSleep™2.0 which tracks sleep stages, real-time heart rate, breathing during sleep, as well as analyzing sleep quality while offering more than two hundred tips for sleep quality improvement. It also keeps an eye on the users’ stress levels with the help of the HUAWEI TruRelax™ technology.
Professional fitness tracking
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro Moon Phase Collection is also a stellar sports companion, mainly attributed to its fitness tracking and training features. Although the series in general is great when it comes to this aspect, Huawei’s latest iteration steps it up a notch with the addition of new professional workout modes, covering almost all sports scenes and providing professional and accurate sports data. The new smartwatch comes with Golf and Skiing tracking modes, which help the user improve their performance overall. It also comes with more than a 100 workout modes along with 10 pre-installed runner training courses. The running courses include an introduction course, a fat burning running course, endurance-boosting course and more, each suited for different types of users. In addition to this, the smartwatch can also automatically detect workouts such as outdoor running, outdoor walking, indoor walking, indoor running, elliptical and rower and provide accurate data on the entire activity.
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro Moon Phase Collection is also water resistant up to 5ATM*, which means users can take it for a swim or even enjoy water sports without having to worry about ruining their smartwatch.
Handy Assistant features for everyday use
A smartwatch is only as good as how smart it is, and the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro Moon Phase Collection comes with a wide range of smart features to justify it. These include a Bluetooth calling feature, which allows users to answer, reject or even dial back recent calls directly from their smartwatch itself or even control music playback with a few taps. Users can also use the remote shutter for easier photography and even the Find my Phone feature to easily find their connected smartphone.
