At first glance, the Watch GT looks like your typical Wear OS smartwatch. Instead, the Watch GT runs Huawei”s in-house LiteOS. True to its name, LiteOS is a lightweight smartwatch platform that includes custom watch faces, exercise tracking, and notifications.
The watch itself features a 1.39-inch circular AMOLED touchscreen with a 454 x 454 resolution, GPS, heart rate monitor, an altimeter, double chipset architecture, AI that automatically switches between the two cores, 5ATM waterproofing, and a 420mAh battery.
Huawei’s goal with the Watch GT is to deliver great battery life. To that end, the company told us the watch will last up to 22 hours on a single charge with continuous exercise tracking, GPS, heart rate monitoring, and the screen turned on at all times. The battery life jumps to two weeks with heart rate monitoring and 90 minutes of exercise tracking each week.
Battery life jumps even further to 30 days if you just use the Watch GT for notifications and calls.
If you want a smartwatch and want to try something a bit different, you can grab the Watch GT Sport for $199.99 at the link below. There’s also a Watch GT Classic that’s available for $$229.99. Both are currently listed as sold out on Amazon, but you can still pick them up and have them delivered when they’re available.
