For these smartwatches, Huawei has dropped the smaller 42mm model. As a result, this is the only solution present. It’s not the most convenient thing to put on, weighing about 52 grams without the strap. Still, before we get started on the wrong foot, I’d like to point out that this is purely a personal preference, and anyone else might easily adapt to the Watch GT 2 Pro.

Starting with the build quality, Huawei has made the most improvements in comparison to the regular Watch GT 2. The 3D glass has been replaced with sapphire glass, and the acrylic back and stainless steel shell have been replaced with ceramic backs and titanium cases, respectively. This is without a doubt one of the most high-end smartwatches ever used on a wrist.
For these smartwatches, Huawei has dropped the smaller 42mm model. As a result, the only other option—the 46mm—is a little too big for my side. It’s not the most convenient thing to put on, weighing about 52 grams without the strap. Still, before we get started on the wrong foot, I’d like to point out that this is purely a personal view, and anyone else might easily adapt to it.
Night Black and Nebula Gray The latter is our Huawei GT 2 Pro evaluation unit. The business also includes two watch bands in the case, and although I initially preferred the leather band, I found the fluoroelastomer to be more secure.
- Sapphire glass on a 1.39-inch AMOLED display
- 200+ watch faces, 454 x 454 pixels
The monitor is the same 1.39″ Always-on AMOLED screen with 454 x 454 resolution as the non-Pro version. However, as I previously said, the company has switched from the 3D glass material used on the Watch GT 2 to sapphire here, resulting in a very robust panel.
Moving on, Huawei offers over 200 watch faces to select from. Thankfully, the majority of them are well-designed and complement the GT 2 Pro’s aesthetics.
Huawei’s Kirin A1 chipset and Lite OS are at the heart of the system. In our critique of the Honor MagicWatch 2, we bemoaned its ineptness (which is the exact same as Huawei Watch GT 2). Unfortunately, the criticism has been carried over to the Watch GT 2 Pro.
The foregoing sluggishness in the user interface/user experience This should never have been a concern in the first place, given its high status. It looks almost amateurish in comparison to the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3.
With 32MB of RAM and 4GB of capacity, the Watch GT 2 Pro is unfortunately unable to contend in terms of results with the best of the best. It also doesn’t help any third-party applications, which is a major disappointment.
Over 100 fitness models are included in the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro. This smartwatch, according to the brand, will automatically detect six workouts, including walking, running, elliptical, and so on. However, I had trouble activating it on many occasions. The automated fitness recognition algorithm in GT 2 Pro doesn’t like slow-paced runs.
Rowing, sailing, skiing, and even golfing are among the 100+ fitness modes available. Aside from that, it monitors blood oxygen, continuous heart rate, stress, and sleep. Despite Huawei promising continuous SpO2 tracking with a firmware upgrade, it has yet to arrive, which is yet another frustration.
With the same 455mAh battery as the Watch GT 2, the company claims a battery life of up to 14 days. That’s a great number for a smartwatch, particularly given how Apple’s and Samsung’s best smartwatches will only last two days before needing to be charged.
