Three materials and a simple style
Huawei maintains the design with the case, with shared genetics between the two previous Watch GT 2s but they use even more refined physical buttons with the new design. The case combines three materials, Huawei seeks to obtain both comfort and robustness, opting for sapphire crystal, titanium for the body and ceramic back. This way, it is presented as a resistant smartwatch. Nebula Gray and Night Black colors are available too.
The screen has a 1.39-inch AMOLED panel. There are also two models available with different straps you can choose from. One made of more sporty and waterproof plastic and a more classic one, made of leather (which should not get wet).
There are more than 100 activity modes. The newest feature is “Driving Range” for golf players, which gives information about the swing. And there’s a mod for skiing, which includes various styles for better data tracking. It’s similar to what we saw recently in its cousin, HONOR Watch GS Pro.
