I picked one up from Noels this weekend after a lot of researching of smartwatches and fitness trackers. For $149 this is a steal. 46mm - a very nice watch with a sharp AMOLED display, always-on mode, notifications, heaps of workout modes. Can be loaded with mp3s and linked with bluetooth headphones. GPS/GLONAS for run tracking. Works on Android and IOS (with slightly limited functionality on iOS).
It runs its own Huawei OS so there aren't any apps like WatchOS or Wear. However, it's getting pretty regular updates since release. The GT2 is $349 and the only difference is a slightly different strap design and the inbuilt speaker/mic.
A great option if you don't want to splash out for a Galaxy or Apple Watch
My Huawei Watch GT2e arrived today and I'm very impressed as I also have a Samsung Galaxy Watch 46mm and for a third of the cost of the Samsung this watch is definitely a steal.
Warning for whoever wants to buy it:
On non-Huawei phone requires Huawei Mobile Services which pretty much requires full access to your phone.
And HMS on Play Store is out of date so you're required to download and install latest apk manually.
Thanks for the tip/warning. I use iOS and the app is fairly simple (no extra hoops) but it doesn't have the 'store' for watch faces or allow for music upload and control.
Now that people are staying away from Huawei could this be other way that the company is trying to read the consumer data?
when it wants access to stuff it doesn't need, id say so
So the bottom line, if you don't have a Huawei phone its a lot of hoops to jump through to get it on a normal android phone(I own a redmi)?
Pity, looks a good watch. Huawei have been hurt with the google ban.
The ban is good though slows down the CCP, I don't want to live in a world where the CCP controls everything.
Do you even know CCP? did you do any research or just know what you have been told?
Do you? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uj_pcpN9iL4&t=2s
It will be a matter of time until a Chinese company comes up with its own OS, it won't be flash to begin with but the same was said about Chinese made phones when they first came out. At least when Google was allowed to work with Huawei, there was no reason for them to have their own OS.
It not the operating system its actually the security of the apps,like banking apps,financial apps and health apps etc,and the Chinese access to the android security code.
What do you mean by Android Security Code? Sounds like a made up word.
To protect user data privacy, security, and safeguard the overall experience, the Google Play Store, Google Play Protect, and Google’s core apps (including Gmail, YouTube, Maps, and others) are only available on Play Protect certified devices
Should have said acces to Android app code
Still doesn't make sense. Android source code is open source. Huawei app's source code is readily accessible for them.
@bonanton: Just because you have an android operating system doesn't give you access to Google play .For example android TV,Networking systems Security systems and printers do not have access to the Google play store.Google's mobile 0S is not open source it's a licensed operating system.For example you can download Google Chrome OS onto your windows laptop but you cannot access the play store.The banning of Huawei seems to be political anyway as other Chinese manufactured mobile phones are either directly or indirectly involved with Huawei and have still kept their license .
On iOS I didn’t have to sign up to anything or setup any accounts with Huawei. Just install the Huawei Health app and everything works. It even syncs to Apple Health.
its only 46mm? I got one but is probably too big for me =(
I used Huawei phones in the last 10 years, and I'm still using. Never have to worry.
