    There is only one major flaw about this watch (that is if you do not use watch for call and message answering - why would you complicate your life with that?): Huawei does not support Strava. Everything else is just great. I charge my GT once a month. It supports up to 22 hours in GPS mode (the old watch) or up to 30 hours (GT 2). This is mind blowing result.

  • Teo Sluga

    I have the old watch GT. Practically same watch apart from Bluetooth 5 and storage... Great watch by the way. While samsung active and apple watch owners charge their watches every 2-3 days, I can easily charge my watch every 10-20 days, depending on usage.

  • คนเคยเรียนที่ วสส. ชลบุรี

    Huawei​ Watch GT2​ can receive a direct call, 2 GB of built-in storage capacity. 500 music, with a smartphone installed, you can use the Watch headset to run a workout. Listen to music through Bluetooth comfortable, waterproof sweat.

    Looks like this watch (like the Watch Gt ) also does not have 3-rd party integration (i.e. Starva etc.) as it uses the same Huawei Health app. If you use Strava or sync your activities to 3-rd party services stay away, at least until this issue is resolved, if ever. There is a ongoing petition to add at least gpx export. Here is the whole topic on the forum

    Huawei GT I am using since 4 months. Got two times software updates. One for AOD and dual time zone. 2nd time for stress. All updates are very useful. I keep AOD on from 10 to 16 hours. My battery life 10days after 50 min workout on daily basis. Very accurate HR , Step dount and true sleep data. I used Amazfit GTR for 15 days and sold it. Huawei GT is far far better then amazfit GTR as a true fitness tracker except custom watch faces in India. Watch faces on GT are not allowing custom faces in India. I do not know why? Huawei do not have cloud base services in India for custom watch faces which is big draw back!. But GT has 12 watch faces on GT. Huawei should be very fair while doing business in India. Otherwise as there in no lag in GT and very fluid touch screen but Amazfit GTR is not smooth software and big problem while pairing the watch and does not smooth. I love huawei GT and GT 2 may be better than GT. We need to see the price tag GT 2

      @Teo Sluga I agree as a fitness care and active person.

    • Teo Sluga
      Teo Sluga 18 days ago +1

      No worries for watch faces as there is actually no storage to download them on a watch. You need to stick with the ones installed. This no big deal as samsung users download 200 watch faces but at the end they use no more then 2. There is one major drawback relating to sport: huawei does not support Strava. Major flaw for bikers. Maybe this will change in future.

      I charge my Huawei Watch GT once a month. But is getting better: I can use GT in GPS mode for 22 hours!!! The new version can last up to 30 hours. That is on pair with Garmin Fenix watches that cost 800 eur.

    For those talking about the lag, he said that it only occured when setting up the phone, otherwise he didn't experience any when actually using the watch normally. Excited for this since I'm guessing this is gonna be the pre order/purchase gift for when I *might* upgrade to a P40.
