After weeks of speculation, more details about the forthcoming Huawei Watch GT are now accessible. Most of the rumors claim that the Chinese-brand’s new smartwatch will finally ditch WearOS in favor of an in-house operating system. The information was revealed by a pre-emptively posted product page on the official website. Shortly after, it was taken down, but we’ve gathered a bunch of information about the new wearable anyway. So, let’s start and find out more about this device.

We know that bloatware and other unnecessary apps normally eat up a lot of battery as they run on the background. That’s why Huawei chose to abandon Google’s wearable platform and aim for a longer usage time. The 420mAh built-in power source will supposedly deliver up to 30 days of uptime in default watch mode. Turn the GPS system on and smartwatch still promises close to 22 hours location-tracking alongside your activity of choice. This suggests that longevity is the highlight of the new product.

To maintain its premium and stylish design, the branding and logo are strategically on the case back. The Huawei Watch GT parades a 454 x 454-resolution 1.39-inch circular AMOLED display. The official listing likewise confirms that the wearable will include an optical heart rate sensor and sleep-monitoring sensors. Moreover, they also tease a new feature that they refer to as TruRelax atmospheric pressure tracking. We just hope that device lives up to its claims of remarkable battery life.
