Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) recently introduced a new addition to its popular Huawei Watch GT 2 Series, the GT 2e. Designed to inspire an active lifestyle, the new smartwatch features 100 workout modes ranging from traditional sports to more trendy forms of exercise.
Huawei has added a blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) monitoring feature to the GT 2e. Supported by a two-week long battery life, the device is engineered to bring a scientific, yet sporty concept to global consumers’ everyday life. The new smartwatch also supports precise heart rate monitoring, abnormal heart rate reminders, pressure level monitoring and sleep monitoring features that allow users to understand their health status in real time.
The device has concealed crown that matches the watch body to add an extra flourish. New and refreshing colour variants have also been introduced, with Mint Green and Lava Red giving consumers a simple yet stylish look. The GT 2e is equipped with a 1.39-inch AMOLED high precision touch display supporting a Retina-grade resolution. With this vibrant display, users are always just one tap away from information, even if they are outside on a bright summer’s day.
“Like the previous HUAWEI WATCH GT products, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e will continue to bring reliable fitness and health management experiences to consumers.” Said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei CBG, “Huawei places huge importance on fitness and health functions. Since we are upgrading the All-scenario Seamless AI Life strategy in 2020, fitness and health will become an essential user scenario.”
Instead of following traditional designs where the watch face is separated from its strap, it possesses a classic round dial with an integrated strap for a streamlined, modern look – a refreshing take on the future of smartwatches. Its stainless steel body complements the concealed, crown design that blends in with the watch’s curved silhouette. The watch comes in four new colours, Graphite Black, Lava Red, Mint Green and Icy White, with a strap made of a soft and comfortable fluororubber.
The dual-colour, breathable TPU material completes a flawless unibody design. All of these features not only highlight how comfortable GT 2e is to wear, but also underline its durability. Even during intense exercise, fitness and health monitoring is still accurate. It comes equipped with a 1.39-inch AMOLED high precision touch display which is crisp and colourful, allowing users to see the details clearly even in strong sunlight.
Huawei’s latest smartwatch also spices things up with its new watch faces. By introducing new motion watch faces, which complement fluidity and action when the user is on the move, Huawei is offering even more customisation. Additionally, the new dual time zone theme helps users to stay connected with friends, family and colleagues around the world.

The GT 2e supports 15 professional workout modes including eight outdoor activities (running, walking, mountain climbing, hiking, trail running, cycling, open water swimming, triathlon) and seven indoor activities (walking, running, cycling, pool swimming, free training, elliptical machine, rower).

Internal storage that can store around 500 mp3 songs. With Huawei Music and Bluetooth headphones, users can enjoy their custom exercise playlist during their training.
Based on a high-performance heart rate sensor, Huawei’s self-developed Truseen™ 3.5 heart rate monitoring technology, TruRelex™ stress management technology, and Trusleep™ 2.0 technology, HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e allows users to monitor heart rate, stress level and sleep quality in real time, so they can have a full understanding of their health status.
When a user’s heart rate is too high or too low, the watch will send a notification. The GT 2e is equipped with Huawei’s proprietary Kirin A1 chip to provide a two-week battery life, assisting users to perform fitness and health management actively and comprehensively.
Huawei also announced the new Frosty White and Chestnut Red variants with a menstrual management feature.
