We saw Huawei launching the Huawei Watch GT2 in September along with the Mate 30 Series. And recently, it was confirmed that the Huawei Watch GT2 will be launched in India on December 5. So, the wait is over. Huawei Watch GT2 has been launched in India.
It is currently available in two sizes in India – 42mm and 46mm. The 42mm variant is available in only one colour option – Night Black which is priced at ₹14,990. On the other hand, the 46mm variant is being offered in three colour options – Matte Black, Pebble Brown and Titanium Grey which costs ₹15,990, ₹17,990 and ₹21,990 respectively.
At its heart, the Huawei Watch GT2 has Kirin A1 chipset. As of now, I haven’t tried any watches with that chipset. So, can’t comment about the performance yet. If and when I try it, I’ll let you know how I feel about the chipset as well as the Watch.
The 42mm variant sports a 1.2-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 390×390 while the 46mm variant comes with a larger 1.39-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 454×454. The smaller variant has a claimed battery life of up to 7 days while the larger one has claimed battery life of 14 days. If it reaches anywhere near those claims, it’ll be great.
The smaller variant has 16MB RAM while the larger variant has 32MB RAM. But both of them are equipped with the same amount of storage – 2GB. It can work with any smartphone – Android or iOS and will have several features like heart rate monitoring, sleep monitoring (my favourite in any watch) as well as fitness tracking. It’s also equipped with GPS and Bluetooth 5.1 for better accuracy and connectivity. It’s also water resistant up to 50 metres.
The 46mm is the one which will go on sale first and will be available through Amazon.in, Flipkart and offline stores in India from December 19. But if you are willing to pre-book it between December 12 and December 19, then you’ll also get the Huawei Freelace Bluetooth earphones worth ₹6,999 at no extra cost. It’s still unknown when the smaller 42mm variant will go on sale in India. But as soon as it is known, I’ll make sure to update you about the same.
