As part of the Huawei Mate 40 presentation last week, the company also released the new Porsche Design Huawei Watch GT 2 smartwatch. Consider it a high-end addition to the current Huawei smart watch range.
Partnering supercar design and technology, the body of the watch is built of titanium and the bezel has the iconic Porsche Design logo integrated. It is a 46mm case with a 1.39-inch AMOLED circular display.
Fitted on a titanium strap that has been sandblasted to offer a matte finish. On the side of the circular watch are two digital crowns, one of which has Porsche Design’s iconic red circle – letting users explore the various settings and configurations. It has a two week battery meaning you can also wear it over night for it sleep tracking abilities.
Even though it is a fashionable smartwatch, one that can be worn everyday to work it supports data tracking for more than 100 different type of workout, including indoor and outdoor sports such as hitting the driving range, skiing and mountain climbing amongst others. If swimming is more your thing, the watch is water resistant up to 50m. During these intense workouts, you can keep an eye on your SpO2 level and heart rate thanks to the 6-in-1 LED lens embedded in the ceramic back of the watch.
The watch comes with a wireless charger, cable and a Fluoroelastomer strap and while stocks last, Huawei will throw in a pair of FreeBuds 3 worth £150 for free, which may soften the blow on the total cost as the watch comes in at £629.
