Huawei’s next wearable, which is a smartwatch has been extensively leaked and we now know very well about it. Huawei’s last smartwatch was launched almost a year and a half back and nothing was expected this time as well. But several leaks have already revealed that a new smartwatch which would be known as Watch GT is already in works and may launch soon.
Thanks to the FCC listing, we already know that the Watch GT from Huawei will include a 410mAH battery and support 5W charging via the charging pad, which itself uses a USB Type-C port. It will include a GPS, a number of fitness-focused features, and NFC support as well. The last feature will help in making contactless payments via the Google Pay, Huawei Pay, or any other alternatives. Now, more specifications of the device have been leaked.
According to WiseBuy, the Watch GT will arrive with a circular 1.4-inch AMOLED display with 454x454 pixels resolution. It has a total diameter of 46.5mm and the thickness sits at 10.4mm. Apart from the aforementioned features, the Watch GT will also include a heart rate sensor and it could include the water resistance property. Also, sleep tracking will be there, thanks to Huawei’s TruSleep.
In some leaked marketing materials, the Huawei Watch GT is also referred to as Fortuna, which could be its codename. The Watch is said to have 14 days of battery life in “watch mode with all features on,” 7 days in “watch mode with the screen always on,” and 20 hours in “GPS mode.” One of the stuff also revealed that the watch is going to have multi-sport modes, like running, biking, swimming, mountaineering, hiking, trail running, and so on.
Alongside this watch, the site also makes revelations of a fitness bracelet codenamed Huawei Terra that could launch with a 0.95-inch AMOLED display. It will also include heart rate monitor, GPS, and have water-resistant property.
The two wearables are said to be announced at Huawei’s Mate 20 launch event which will commence on October 16th.
