Huawei Consumer Business Group, India today announced the launch of its latest wearable and expansion of its product portfolio in the market, with the launch of Huawei Watch GT, a revolutionary long-battery life smartwatch. Witnessing a remarkable growth globally and forming a greater competitiveness in the field of smart wearables, Huawei Watch GT offers novel and sophisticated ways for consumers to track their activities and receive fitness coaching that is based on scientific research.
Featuring the classic wristwatch design, ultra-high battery life, low power consumption, sophisticated activity tracking and fitness coaching features, Huawei Watch GT is one of the most anticipated wearables of the year. It has got inspiration from the inherent DNA of GT, and brought the valuable essence to the gene of this watch, enhancing the users’ spiritual cognition. The smartwatch bears the GT name to call attention to its high performance and reliability—just as Grand Tourers, or high performance automobiles, are trusted for their prowess.
Commenting on the launch, Tornado Pan, Country Manager (Huawei Brand), Consumer Business Group, Huawei India said, “With continuous investment in technology and meaningful innovation, our constant endeavor has been to create products that tackle the real pain points of consumers. We have received an overwhelming response on our current lineup of products and are now looking at expanding our portfolio, and providing the complete Huawei ecosystem experience to our customers here. At Huawei, we want to introduce our consumers to breakthrough technological innovations, creating a true differentiation in the market.”
“Wearable devices complement the feature sets of today’s handsets to help consumers get more out of their devices. Designed for today’s urban explorers, the Huawei Watch GT addresses one of the most common pain points of wearables: battery life, and breaks boundaries of traditional cognition, and brought the valuable essence to the gene of this watch, enhancing the users’ spiritual cognition. The launch of Huawei Watch GT is a step in this direction and we are confident that our consumers would be able to differentiate us in the market and would like to enjoy superior technology and a power-packed device that is a pinnacle of innovation”, He further added.
With classic wristwatch design aesthetics integrated, Huawei Watch GT integrates the functional specifications in a 10.6mm thick compact body to the maximum extent. The 1.39-inch, 454×454 AMOLED high resolution display presents information cleanly on the wrist. The smart watch body incorporates a dual-crown design with stainless steel and ceramic bezels, and is treated with a DLC diamond carbon coating to provide users with durability that will last for decades. It features a jade-like and fantastic texture, as well as unique and elegant design which is compatible with two band options—a dual-color silicone band and an elegant leather-rubber band—giving users more choices to customize their Huawei Watch GT for any occasion.
Designed for today’s urban explorers, the Huawei Watch GT addresses one of the most common pain points of wearables: battery life. The Huawei Watch GT uses an innovative smart power-saving algorithm that enables the watch to enter normal mode if it identifies “dynamic scenario” or low-power consumption model if it identifies “static scenario”. Depending on user activity, this algorithm brings it long endurance and allows the smart watch to stay powered for up to two weeks for frequent use mode. Furthermore, the dual-core architecture of the Huawei Watch GT lets the wearable user enjoy the best of both worlds—it is simultaneously a powerful and highly efficient smart watch.
Huawei Watch GT applies GPS chip which is superior to the industry brand and capable of supporting the simultaneous positioning of three satellite systems for rapid and accurate positioning. It can simultaneously tap into GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO, thus obtaining more accurate and comprehensive positioning and offer more reliable exercise records. The watch also adopts accurate track optimization algorithm for one-to-one track optimization under complex scenarios
Huawei Watch GT supports rich sports modes such as hiking, trail run, outdoor walking, running, cycling, swimming and free training. It supports all-round sports data tracking in the context of cooperation with professional sports organizations, such as time, distance, heart rate, stride frequency, step count, stride, matching speed, aerobic and anaerobic training effect, training status, training load, recovery time suggestion and VO2max. It brings the users scientific training system under professional and smart exercise mode, with the focus placed on heart rate-based guidance for running like basic knowledge, fat loss, endurance improvement, cardio training, among others.
The TruSeen™ 3.0 heart rate monitoring technology tracks the user’s active and resting heart rate. Combining innovative PPG optical and hardware design and AI algorithms, the solution can monitor the heart rate of users in real time with high precision. It can achieve heart rate monitoring under exercise heart rate, rest heart rate and other modes. In the exercise heart rate mode, the user can preset the running template of the heart rate interval, and can directly select the corresponding template to run without defining the heart rate interval. The matched vibrating reminder function helps the users control their speed to increase or decrease the heart rate. In the resting heart rate mode, the watch will automatically record the user’s resting heart rate as long as the user keeps wearing the watch, thus better safeguarding their health.
The Huawei Watch GT supports 24-hour continuous smart heart rate monitoring, and can detect the user’s exercise status before entering the exercise mode and intelligently adjust the detection frequency of the heart rate according to the exercise status, thus ensuring accurate heart rate tracking and resting heart rate measuring. In addition, the watch also features faster single-measurement heart rate value, alarm of heart rate rise, continuous pressure monitoring and early warning (not supported by overseas edition) and moderate to high-intensity exercise.
Huawei Watch GT would be available on Amazon.in starting 19th March, 2019 at INR 16990 for Classic Edition & INR 15,990 for Sports Edition. Early bird customers would get Huawei Sport BT AM61 Earphones worth INR 2999 free along with the Huawei Watch GT. The Huawei Watch GT will be available with a No-cost EMI of 3 months, 6 months & 9 months on a majority of leading banks in India.
