Introduced along the Mate 20 sequence in October 2018, the Huawei Watch GT used to be the primary wearable from the Chinese language smartphone producer to recreation a homegrown running device (LiteOS).
If leaked photographs posted on German newsletter WinFuture are the rest to move by means of, it looks as if historical past is ready to copy itself, with Huawei perhaps debuting an up to date model of the smartwatch later this month.
From the renders it is transparent that the impending smartwatch will resemble the unique Watch GT, however the show appears to be marginally higher, with slimmer bezels and a thinner frame. Another way the design maintains the spherical face, two-button glance of the unique.
In step with WinFuture, the impending Watch GT 2 gets a 445mAh battery – a step up from the 420mAh possibility within the predecessor which gave it as much as 14 days of use.
Different new options within the Watch GT 2 are stated to be a mic and speaker which the unique lacked, suggesting customers will be capable to make and take calls proper from their wrist, however whether or not an LTE fashion may well be incoming is unclear.
The leaked renders blow their own horns two other fashions – one ‘sports activities’ possibility whilst the opposite has a extra vintage glance with a leather-based strap. The smartwatch is claimed to have a heavy center of attention on health, with the center price track from the primary iteration making a return, along improve for monitoring more than one actions, together with mountaineering, swimming, biking and working.
Will it harmonize?
The unique Watch GT used to be the primary Huawei wearable to step clear of Google’s Put on OS – being powered by means of LiteOS. And it kind of feels most likely that the fashion will proceed, with the Watch GT 2 carrying an up to date model of LiteOS.
On the other hand, TechRadar lately learnt that Huawei has used parts of LiteOS all through the early phases of constructing HarmonyOS – the Chinese language producer’s new choice to the Android cellular running device – and used to be designed for use on gadgets already to be had in the marketplace, just like the Watch GT.
If Huawei does use HarmonyOS within the upcoming wearable, it is going to restrict the selection of apps customers have get admission to to, as used to be the case with its predecessor.
We’re anticipating the Watch GT 2 to release along the Mate 30 sequence on September 19, however hypothesis is rife that Huawei would possibly select to unencumber the wearable previous – in all probability all through IFA 2019 – because it isn’t depending on any tool from Google.
