Under the name of Honor Watch ES and Honor Watch GS Pro we find two devices full of interesting functions for sports monitoring and encouraging users to lead a healthy and active life.
Honor Watch ES: urban, dynamic and carefree
The Honor Watch ES is the new smartwatch that targets a young, urban audience who cares about their fitness and wants to improve it.
Honor Watch ES specs
It features a 1.64-inch rectangular AMOLED touchscreen built with a 456×280 resolution. The shape of the watch gives it a certain similarity to a sports bracelet, but its monitoring functions look great for sports activity.
For example, it allows you to guide the user when doing stretching and a series of 12 exercise programs through animations on the screen, thus minimizing the risk of adopting incorrect postures when executing the recommended exercises.

In addition, it allows monitoring up to 95 different sports activities, among which there are not only “traditional” sports but we also find dance, fitness, yoga, etc., as well as exercises to prevent the effects of sedentary lifestyle such as stretching to avoid joint pain in the office.
Of course, its sensors allow you to automatically record the steps, calories and distance traveled during your workouts, but also monitor other constants such as blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), sleep stages and even track the cycle menstrual.
Regarding its autonomy, the new urban smartwatch from Honor offers an autonomy of up to 10 days of use and fast charging with which, in just 30 minutes, it manages to recover 70% of its charge.
The Honor Watch ES is very light with only 21 grams and it has 5 ATM water resistance that will allow you to swim in pools or in fresh waters without any problems.
In addition, thanks to its connectivity, it allows you to control the smartphone camera remotely, control music playback or show notifications or reject calls from the smartwatch. This is especially interesting when, for example, you are swimming and can take the call.

The Honor Watch ES will be available from the Honor online store starting from September 21 for a $99 price tag.
Honor Watch GS Pro for urban adventures
The Honor Watch GS Pro has a more adventurous character, it is designed for those who love sports.
Honor Watch GS Pro specs
Its appearance already reveals a greater robustness that has passed up to 14 resistance tests necessary to obtain the MIL-STD-810G military resistance certificate granted by the US Army.
It has a 1.39-inch AMOLED touch screen with 454×454 pixel resolution with 5 ATM water resistance and it supports for GPS and GLONASS positioning .
These features are clearly oriented to use in large open spaces in which the positioning, the calculation of heights and distances take on special relevance so as not to get lost on the route, making it possible to create a return route by following your own steps or issuing alerts when you go out of the established route.
In a natural environment, it is not always possible to access a power outlet, so the Honor Watch GS Pro offers an incredible autonomy of up to 25 days of use, or 48 hours of use with GPS activated. It will full recharge in 2 hours.
For those who practice mountain and adventure sports, the Honor Watch GS Pro allows recording up to 100 sports activities, including skiing, snowboarding, climbing, cross country or cross country, as well as monitoring constants during training such as heart rate, rhythm, steps, calories burned, etc.
The new Honor smartwatch also monitors other important parameters to maintain a healthy lifestyle such as sleep routines and stress or the level of oxygen saturation in the blood .
