Unboxing the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro & Initial Impressions

The Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro was built on the success of the Huawei Watch GT Series. From the first GT series smartwatch, to the GT 2 and now the GT 2 Pro. Huawei has got the watch features and specs right on its previous release, this time they add more and focused on the premium look and feel of their GT 2 Pro version.

Titanium case with sapphire glass and a ceramic back. Now those are just some that we don't get to see much in a smartwatch. But before we get down to the specs, let's unbox the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro.

Inside you will get some manuals the type-C charging cable and also the wireless charging dock of the watch.

Focusing on the watch, you can really see the quality and thought that was put into this smartwatch. The titanium case has that brush finish that give a really nice premium feel to it. The substle curve to its lugs and on to the rubber straps compliments the whole look of the watch. The sapphire glass was necessary for its finish and durability. It has a 47mm oversized case with a bright 454 x 454 AMOLED display.

On the side you can see two buttons on the two and four position. Here you can access the menu and work out modes. The buttons also has some nice texture to that that adds to the sophistication of the design.

The ceramic base is where it houses its multiple sensors. 
  • SP02 Meaures the level of oxygen in the blood
  • Heart Rate monitor,
  • Activity meter,
  • Sleep quality analyzer,
  • Level determination,
  • Barometer,
  • Altimeter, &
  • Compass
The Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro is also equipped with a GPS receiver which is very useful in tracking physical activity.

One cool thing here is you can use different watch faces. With over 200 watch faces to choose from, the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro gives so so many customization options. Choose from different layouts, time, constellation, moon and so much more. In other countries, its is also called as the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro Moon Phase Collection, it brings 8 moon phases, tide times, constellations and more all in one dial.
Another new feature here is you can use photos you have and make it your watch face. Do it in just a quick tap with the Huawei Share OneHop Watch Face. Just tap your phone to your watch and you got it. It's as easy as that. This is all part of HUAWEI's seamless AI Life, where it integrates multiple devices to create a harmony of connectivy between you and your devices.

The Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro actually has more that 100+ workout modes. With precise data tracking on a lot of workout mode like climbing, outdoor running, rowing, surfing, tennis, etc. There are also more than 10 running courses with throughout voice guidance to give you more suggestions for better training. 
Two things that are also highlighted on the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro is the Snowboard mode and Golf. For snowboard, it notifies the user of the incline of the slode or the average speed of descent. For gold, user gets an advanced mode showing the speed and pace of the swing of the golf club. 
The straps are also easy to remove  and replace with your preferred strap as long as it has the same width. To remove the original strap, you just have to pull down the lock and remove the strap.

Other features that I like with the Huawei Watch GT 2 that I use regularly are the following:
  • Microphone - Answering calls on my watch is more convenient that I thought. Especially when driving. I don't have to grab my phone to answer, I can just talk to my wrist and be like James Bond.
  • Timer/Alarm- Very useful for a lot of reasons. Cooking, exercise or as a reminder. I always use the timer as my guide to better track time.
  • Stress & Breathing exercise - Knowing my stress level and doing some breathing exercises helps me manage myself better.
  • Sleep Monitoring - Tracking my sleep now is easier and much better. The date provided will help me better understand if I am getting enough good sleep.
  • Find My Phone - This feature saves me a lot of time. Everytime I misplace my phone somewhere in the office or house, I can easily set this alarm off and my phone would this. This helps me to find my phone faster
Another thing I love with the Huawei Watch GT 2 is its battery life. In true Huawei GT fashion, this pro version will not be left out. It can last you up to 2 weeks of battery life on a typical use. That is way more that other premium smartwatch in this category. Imaging having to charge your smartwatch twice or thrice a month, amazing right?  The GT 2 Pro is powered by the Lite OS - Kirin A1 giving users great battery efficiency.

This Huawei Watch GT 2 comes with a wireless charger dock. It can also be charged with other Qi wireless chargers as well. Ran out of juice and forgot charge at home? All you have to do is place your watch to any phone or tablet that supports reverse wireless charge and you are ready to go.
So if you're in the market for a smartwatch that has better fitness-focused features than others in the market right now, then I highly recommend you guys checking out the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro. The design, good build quality, useful features and a  lot of sports mode, this will surely be a very useful wearable gadget for anyone. From the office to the gym or sports to an adventure, this sure is a smartwatch to beat this 2020.
