Honor has officially unveiled two new smartwatches as part of its IFA 2020 catalog: Honor Watch GS Pro and Honor Watch ES. The first one is a rugged smartwatch aimed at those who love to go on adventurous trips. The second one is more like a casual watch with a focus on lifestyle and fashion.
The Honor Watch GS Pro has a design that one would expect from a rugged smartwatch. It boasts MIL-STD-810G certification for thermal, shock, and water resistance. It is made up of polycarbonate material and stainless steel bezels that should offer more durability. It is claimed to be able to withstand high temperatures, low temperatures, rain, humidity, and low pressures at altitude.
For outdoor activity lovers, the watch can track activities like hiking, skiing, swimming, and snowboarding. There is a SpO2 sensor, heart rate sensor, sleep tracking, automatic workout detection, and a barometer for hikers. The watch comes loaded with over 100 workout modes.
In terms of technical specs, the Watch GS Pro sports a 1.39-inch AMOLED round display with 454 x 454 pixels resolution. There is support for various watch faces for those who love customization. It is claimed to last for up to 25 days under typical usage and up to 48 hours in the GPS performance mode. If it is used with both GPS and power-saving mode, the battery is said to last for about 100 hours.
The Honor Watch GS Pro will cost you EUR 249 and you will be able to choose from Charcoal Black, Marl White, and Camo Blue colors.
The Honor Watch ES features a square-shaped dial that you usually find on modern smartwatches. It sports a 1.64-inch AMOLED display with 456 x 280 pixels resolution and Always-on display mode support. It is capable of detecting up to 95 workout modes and offers animated guides for 44 different exercises. The watch also comes with 12 full animated workout courses.
