    From the moment I sat my eyes on this watch I have really fallen in love. It's brown leather strap on black face looks stylish and elegant. To get the watch up and running I had to download the health app which was a simple registration and pairing of the watch to the phone. I love how there is a wide option of customisation available like changing the look of the face display. You can choose what you would like to get notifications on. The music quality is amazing and I love the whole tracking on my fitness, including heart rate and stress levels. There are still many functions this beautiful time piece has to offer and I am yet to explore and test like the sleep quality function which sends you tailored advice and tips upon tracking your sleeping pattern! So far I'm very impressed with this watch.

    I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review

    Firstly I’ll tell you all the things I loved about it The first and obvious thing is how good this watch looks, it’s a very sleek and elegant design and the one piece of 3D glass as the watch face is absolutely gorgeous, it has a bit of weight which makes it feel very premium as well.

    The watch came with a really nice pebble brown leather strap, I don’t like plastic straps so this was a breath of fresh air and again just added to premium look of this watch.

    Now onto how the watch performs on a day to day basis. Firstly I think it’s important to say that this is really a fitness device rather than a smart watch and I have reviewed it on that basic as well.

    The GT2 uses Huawei’s own watch OS, I found it to be pretty straight forward and easy to use, and is fairly basic compared to some other watch operating systems, And the battery is outstanding, only needing charged once a week with all the settings turned on

    This is an outstanding fitness/health watch and I would absolutely recommend this to anyone

    A good smartwatch, but I think it's more like a fitness watch. Very beautiful, stylish classic design. The watch is perfect for any clothing and any occasion, it comes with two types of straps: silicone and leather. There are many training programs available. There are add-ons such as calling and listening to music, and it also has a notification. There are a speaker and a microphone, but you can't call the voice assistant. Access to contacts and the ability to call from your watch only to a limited number of contacts that you add to your favorites from the Huawei-health app. They sit on your hand very comfortably. Excellent AMOLED display with a bright screen and "always-on display" function. Autonomy at the highest level-like promise up to 2 weeks! I spend 7-9% of the fare per day, taking into account the fact that I periodically answer calls from them. Now, by the middle of the 3rd day of use, the remaining charge is 80%. You can't respond to messages (not critical, but in any case, this is more important to me than the lack of NFC). You can't download third-party apps yet. I hope that all this will be added in time. My friends like them very much.

    Very impressed by the Huawei GT 2, has a very professional look and love the simplicity in the watch itself. The fitness tracker is outstanding and reacts very quickly to exercises without any lag.
    In the time I have been using the watch I have charged it very rarely and the most I have got out of it with full use is over 4 days which frankly is outstanding!
    It is value for money and would give other companies something to think about as it can stand up to its competitors and sets a high example of what you can achieve.
    The heart rate monitor is very precise and accurate which is helpful when looking for trends and keeping track of everything.
    I am very fond of the breathing exercises as it has helped me to control my heart rate and be more aware of the stress, I am putting my body through. This also allows me to be able to implement positive changes and control stress levels in the future. There are many exercises to choose from and the GT2 monitors them very well and also prompts you to work harder or notify you to take it easy. It practically as If I have a personal trainer but without all the hassle and headache.
    I would suggest that it is worth the money in my opinion as its looks very slick and professional and does all the necessities without a problem, the battery is truly outstanding and will keep you going without the need to worry about constantly charging it.

    I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review. The Huawei Watch GT2 is the second smartwatch that I have owned, and will be the only smartwatch on my wrist for a long time. Upon unboxing the Huawei Watch GT2, you are greeted with a very well presented box where the watch takes pride and place. My biggest gripe with many smartwatches is that they look far too unnatural compared to a non smartwatch, the Huawei Watch GT2 looks very much like a normal designer watch at first glance, it's not too big and the brown leather strap makes it look classy. When you turn the watch on the first thing you notice is how good the screen is, it's bright and vivid and easy to read even in bright sunlight. To pair the watch to your phone and set it up you have to download the Huawei Health app, this is very straightforward and after following the instructions I had the watch set up and ready to go in a matter of minutes. The Huawei Watch GT2 is fairly limited in its functionality compared to some other smartwatches, this is a positive for me because I am not the sort of person that likes all the bells and whistles on a smartwatch. Its main strengths are fitness and health tracking and notification alerts. The watch can also be used to take phone calls and track your sleep patterns. The Huawei Watch GT2 is an excellent fitness companion as I have discovered when going about my daily life, it tracks all your steps and can be used to monitor workouts and sports activities. All the information from the watch is synced to the Huawei Health app on your phone where you can set yourself targets and monitor all your exercises in an easy to understand layout. One of the biggest advantages of having limited functionality is battery life. The battery life on the Huawei Watch GT2 is phenomenal. I have been using the watch for nearly a month now and I have only charged the watch twice in that time. Battery life can be reduced if you use the always on display option but even then you can easily get a week's use between charges, this was a welcome change for me after previously having a smartwatch which had to be charged every single night. So to conclude, if you are after a stylish smartwatch that is a great fitness companion with fantastic battery life, then the Huawei Watch GT2 would be a great purchase. However, if you are after a smartwatch with a bit more functionality, it might be worth looking elsewhere.

    I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review.

    The Huawei Watch GT2 comes in attractive packaging. On unboxing it struck me as a quality bit of kit. The bevelled glass that curves down to meet the case is very nicely done.

    It's very easy to get it up and running, simply download the Huawei Health app, connect via bluetooth and away you go.

    I've been using the watch for a while now, wearing it almost constantly, including in the shower. There are no marks on the face or case and the strap is holding up very well.

    I was worried the watch would be too big for me as I have quite small wrists. It is bigger than any other watch I've worn previously although it is quite light so doesn't feel as cumbersome as you might expect. I would still prefer it to be slightly smaller but it's perfectly comfortable as it is.

    I am incredibly impressed with the battery life of this watch. My main issue with other smartwatches I've tried is that you have to take them off every night to charge for the following day. This is inconvenient and also makes things like sleep tracking harder to get any value out of. There is no such worry with this watch! I don't know how they've managed it but I wore it for almost 2 weeks before my first recharge. I find this quite amazing since it's always tracking your heart rate and monitoring steps.

    Notifications work well although I would like to be able to reply to messages direct from the watch. Taking phone calls on the watch works perfectly. I've always been able to hear the caller easily and nobody has noticed I've not been taking the call on my phone.

    I've found the weather function useful and the heart rate, activity tracking and sleep tracking have made me pay more attention to trying to be active and sleep better.

    I don't have an Android phone so can't listen to music and I believe there is slightly more customisation available to Android users but they aren't things I particularly miss. The main feature I would like that's missing is NFC for payments which can be useful although it's not a major omission.

    I think strictly speaking the Watch GT2 is more of an activity tracker than a full blown smartwatch but for me its more than adequate and better than any other smartwatch I've tried. I'd thoroughly recommend it!

    I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review.

    As soon as you open the box you notice that this watch is an absolute beaut. I have the Pebble Brown version and I really like the looks of it.

    Setup will most likely be straightforward for most people, but for some reason Huawei Mobile Services (which is required to set the watch up) kept crashing over and over again for me. I had to install it from the Huawei app store rather than Google Play. This may have been fixed with an updated version of the app to the Play store by now so unlikely to affect others. Apart from that setup was very easy. I found the standard watch face a little busy but it's simple to change to another one.

    I have not found a way to change date formats from MM/YY to YY/MM which is a little frustrating.

    Everything (steps, activity, heart rate, sleep) is tracked in the Huawei Health app. The app has a nice, simple, layout with a couple of tiles on the home screen which give a nice overview.

    Notifications come through reasonably consistently but unfortunately it does not support responding to them like some other smartwatches do.

    The battery life is miles ahead of all the other smartwatches I've used and lasts well over a week for me, probably closer to two. Most smartwatches I've used needed charging every night so this is a huge improvement.

    On the rare occasions that it needs charging it unfortunately uses a proprietary connector. This should really be Qi (or USB-C) as I don't want to be carrying around a bespoke charger.

    Overall, a great smartwatch with some missing features but an incredible battery life.

    I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review.

    The watch comes in a compact box with the watch, USB charging cable connected to a puk which aligns with the back of the watch using pins, and the nice addition of the black rubber strap to use (which is ideal for exercising as I doubt the leather one would hold up too well over time with sweat)

    The watch starts up quickly and can be connected to your phone via the Huawei Health app. Once you’ve confirmed the Bluetooth code your connected.

    The health app is used to manage the watch, and where you’ll find a record of your data, heartrate, stress levels, sleep tracking and notification settings.

    The watch supports a number of workouts, which tracks heart rate, distance, calories burned etc and has a voice coach built in to support you in your routines. It tracks indoor & outdoor runs, swimming, walking, and more.

    Sleep tracking is an interesting one, it seems to detect it well based on movement, and heart-rate changes, however I do wake during the night (thanks to a new-born) however this doesn’t always show so I wouldn’t rely on it 100% Notifications from your apps on your phone can be displayed on the watch (messages, Facebook, WhatsApp, etc) however these can only be read on the watch, you have to use your phone to reply. You can however take calls on the device; the speaker is nice and loud to hear the caller on. The watch can control your music on your phone, or if you want to leave your phone behind you can transfer some music from your phone to the watch, this is quite slow though, but once done it there until you update.

    There is no app store, and a limited amount of watch faces to download and choose from. When EMUI 10 arrives and the new version of the Health app there is rumoured to be a watch face designer to create your own.

    Battery is nothing short of amazing. I’ve been wearing it non-stop for 7 days and the battery is still on 65%, so the advertised 2 weeks battery time is well deserved.

    Overall a great fitness tracker and watch, so long as you’re aware you can’t interact with the phone notifications before you buy you won’t go wrong. Highly recommended.

    From the minute I recieved this watch it felt like a high quality product. Set into a stylish box which contained the watch, a warranty, quick start instruction manual, a spare strap and a magnetic charching cable for a USB plug, (which is not included). I took about 10 minutes to fully charge after unpacking and then it was ready to go. You have to operate Huawei operating app and Huawei health app before you can start using the watch. There are a whole range of health , workout and other options to this great device. It is constantly tacking your heart rate , sleep patterns and overall activity records. It has a full range of workout functions that range from indoor and outdoor run, swim ,cycle to hiking ,swimming,triathlon,rowing and so on. This really is a quality peice of tech which can recieve and make calls , play music tell you the weather and a whole host of other useful functions. I really rate this watch and at the price it is at the moment , it is an absolute bargain.

    I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review.
    My initial thoughts are - The watch looks great, setup was simple after downloading 2 different apps onto my android phone. The watch itself had an update immediately, 15 minutes later I was up and running, the following day I had another update but carried out quicker. Now this watch looks great, the downside to me is for the price I would prefer to go for a better brand that will let you control your mobile (this one doesn’t) and syncs contacts with your phone. 5 full days test and with moderate use the battery is down to 40%, I expect it will last another 2 days at a push so a week and a half not 2 weeks battery life for me. I have notifications from my email, if I don’t get to them quick enough it will duplicate my notification which I don’t expect. I would also love if the music I already had on my phone would be available without having to add it into the Huawei app separately.. The fitness tracking is great, and also the sleep tracking, its very interesting to see how well I am sleeping and I feel its fairly accurate. I did recommend this product but given the recent issue with tracking sleep and it's now 4 days since it occurred then I would not recommend as the software has obviously not been tested properly and it's to long for a fix on one of the selling points of the watch. I will be returning this at the end as that service is not good enough..
    since then I have an issue where the watch doesn't track my stress levels sometimes, get 4 hours or so at a time where it is blank so not sure what's up.. also 2 week battery life is not feasible, a week and it will need charged tonight..

    First impressions
    WOW I have to say I’m impressed with how premium the Watch GT2 looks, everything from the packaging and presentation to wearing it. I’ve even had heads turning in the office questioning what it is.

    Look and feel
    The 3D glass doesn’t have a single mark on it and isn’t the fingerprint magnet I was expecting it to be. I’ve also managed to unintentionally catch the watch on various objects with no marks or scratches to show.

    The display is bright and punchy even in the winter sun its extremely easy to read and navigate.

    On first wear the Watch GT2 felt large, this is because I went from a fitness band to this but got used to it quickly. A week of using the Watch GT2 and wouldn’t ever go back to the fitness band

    Features and Functionality
    The watch menus are extremely easy to navigate as the watch screen is fast and responsive, It took no longer than a couple of minutes to feel familiar with the watch

    The sleep tracking is an amazing function on the Watch GT2, the amount of detail you get is unbelievable giving you information on deep, light and rem sleep

    Battery life is one of the best on any smart watch I have ever used. After 5 days use I still have 72% remaining, with other watches I would start feeling anxious about charging it by now…

    Sports and fitness modes are in abundance, you have everything from hiking to triathlons so far, I’ve only used this whist spinning and the amount of information is excellent and extremely useful to me.

    Room for improvement
    The brown leather strap doesn’t feel as premium as the rest of the watch. This is only a small negative for me and by no means a deal breaker for as the straps are easily swapped with any 22mm strap.

    Overall an extremely premium watch that I enjoy wearing and couldn’t be happier with. Excellent work Huawei.

    Before I give my review I need to mention that I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review.

    I have owned a (smaller) smartwatch from another company for the last 2-3 years, which worked really well. I mostly used it for tracking my heart rate when exercising and vibration alarm to wake me in the mornings. However the one big issue I had with that was the battery life only lasted 2 days which was a pain as I would usually forget to charge it and end up trying to get in a quick 30 mins charge before bed.

    So I was glad to receive an invite to review the GT2 watch with the promised 2 week battery life. Sounded impressive. I have now had this watch for 6 days and the battery life is only down to 71% with display off, and only turned on via button not wrist action. Massive plus so far. I was worried about the size of the watch itself as it is larger than my last but actually it doesn't look chunky at all as it is slimmer. The screen is also pretty amazing too, very clear and bright, easy to read.

    The heart rate and sleep tracking are also much better than previously, showing more information with better increments. I like that the sleep tracking can show which parts of the sleep were deep or light.

    Vibrations for notifications and alarms seems to be on par with my last smart watch, and you can have up to 5 alarms set which is fine for my morning wake up! I do have some negatives, but not deal breakers for me.

    Notifications come through, but you cannot read a full email or message, you only see the subject.

    I also find the list of apps on the phone difficult to navigate as they are not in a useful order. I would also like to be able to put more apps on the swipe right selection but cannot see a way.

    Overall I am very happy with this watch, and would recommend it to anyone look for something more focused on health than on showing all sorts of news/messages etc.

    I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review”. First of all let’s start with the looks – this is an amazing looking smartwatch. The best I have worn, and I have tried smartwatches from all manufactures. The stainless bezel and leather strap, show class and high quality engineering. This feels like a high end watch. When unboxing I was surprised and delighted to find an additional strap in the box (I bought the leather variant, but they also include a black silicone strap – which makes sense as the watch is primarily a fitness tracker, and the leather strap would suffer in sweaty conditions or the pool) The screen is bright and crisp, the battery life so far is epic – (with always on display and continuous heart rate it has dropped 13% in 2 days!). This is slightly better than the original GT. I have compared to my fruit based smart watch () and the GPS and heart rate tracking during exercise is as good or better. I love the continuous all day heart rate tracking, something some of my other watches cannot do. The sleep tracking is perfect. Really accurate. The messaging is basic. It allows you to read, but not reply. I previously owned the Huawei Watch 2 and the GT, and have to say this is a real improvement over the GT. I like the upgrade to include onboard storage of music and Bluetooth connection for headphones (although was disappointed to see this is not available yet with an apple phone (just android). The connection to my wireless earbuds performed without issue on a 5 mile run, and throughout a 1hr gym session. It is also worth noting as well as music, the stress tracking does not work with apple phones either. I love the upgrade to be able to make and receive calls on the watch. This is really handy, and the speaker is loud and clear. The microphone also works well, and callers have said I am clear. No NFC for payment is a bit disappointing. The watch faces that come with the watch offer everything I need. If you are extremely techy, there is also a beta app available unofficially where you can load custom watchfaces, but this is not for the fainthearted. If you can live without NFC, and without additional apps, this is the best smartwatch/fitness tracker I have tried (with an android phone). However if you are an apple phone user, please consider that the onboard storage and stress tracking will not work for you (although I guess Huawei could enable this with a software update.

    I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review. And oh boy, am I happy to have been asked to do it. I’ve been buying smartwatches since they started popping up on the market, and it always feels the same, great excitement up to the purchase, you open the box, and the hassle starts. Complex interface, shoddy build quality, and looks that scream cheap and nasty. This is definitely not the case on the Huawei Watch GT2. The small box is neat, and when you pop the lid, it looks like a proper watch. It comes with an additional rubber strap, a charging puck (and its usb C cable), and the usual manual and warranty card.
    I went for the Classic version (stainless steel and black ceramic bezel, with a brown leather strap), and it is splendid, great quality of finish. It’s dead easy to swap, and I’ve bought a few extra bands and straps to change its style daily, which is a brilliant feature as it allows you to really keep the watch with you without it being too heavy a sartorial dissonance.
    Setup was straightforward, after downloading the app, I just paired the watch, and ten seconds later I was looking at a vast, but well arranged, array of options.
    I decided on the face( you can make your own, and of course, I picked my cat...), set up the notification access and off I went.
    You do get all of the possible things you’d ever want, from sport modes and tracking, to notifications, music control (another great thing is that you can load up your own music onto the watch, and pair it to your headphones)
    What really impressed me, past the looks and the interface, is the battery life.I played with the GT2 all day yesterday (you know that feeling when you get a new gadget and can’t help touching and exploring it), and the battery didn’t even lose 10 percent. and that with every bell and whistle turned on.
    To conclude, that watch is a definite keeper

    I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review.

    I was hoping the Huawei Watch GT2 would be more capable when it came to competing in the smartwatch arena. Having previously owned a first generation smartwatch, from another manufacturer, I don’t feel there has been much progress in the smart features.

    As a smartwatch is has a few issues, notifications have caused the device to notify me multiple times for the same notification. There is no Wi-Fi or LTE so as soon as you leave Bluetooth range all smart features are lost.

    That said, as a fitness tracker I believe the Huawei Watch GT2 is a very capable device. Sporting a battery life of on average 8-9 days, with the active heart rate monitoring enabled and wearing the device 24 hours a day (aside from in the shower), receiving notifications, and generally using it as a watch. I find the heart rate monitoring to be reasonably accurate, however the sleep monitor has proven to not be 100% reliable with it missing me waking up in the night a couple of times.

    The design of the device is very visually pleasing, and the materials used are premium in quality. There are a selection of watch faces and I found that there are options which I would say match each watch and strap combination.

    In conclusion if you’re looking for a stylish fitness tracker which you can wear to dinner, drinks, or something formal this is the device for you.

    I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review”. I received this a week back. The initial reaction when I opened the box was a wowzer, all the things from the weight of the watch to the design are reminiscent of quality over cheapness and that goes further in the UI as well which is uncluttered and gets you to the right place at the tap of your fingers. I quickly paired it to my 11 pro max and might I add that the pairing was a breeze, no need of any manual or instructions, just tap-tap-tap connect. (Download the Huawei health app, connect to the watch by Bluetooth in the settings, open the app again and click the pair option) phewwwww that easy ; ) Soon after there was an update of about 11MB which took another 15 minutes in total to download and install on the watch, tensions are running high you see. The display is phenomenally big and resembles a normal wristwatch, the brightness is adjustable in the settings and maxes out at 5 which is readable in sunlight. It has 14 watch faces which The strap that comes with the watch is another elegant feature that makes the watch stand out from the competition and is user-replaceable with just a flick of a tiny hatch built in the strap's connectors. Surprisingly this came with an additional silicone strap which is sweat resistant and also comfortable to wear. The one I ordered was the leather strap version, I’m not a leather person so don’t know if the provided strap is genuine leather or not. The caveats are as follows: The back of the watch is made of plastic material and doesn’t give that luxurious feeling on your wrist which last time I checked is the place where the watch rests. Find my phone on iOS works 85% of the time. The speaker on the watch tends to get muffled when the wrist is pressed upon the watch. Tap to wake is not an option, you have to click the physical crown button to initiate and action. Notifications are not readable on the watch 50% of the time It doesn't have a dedicated app store for 3rd party apps. No NFC payment option. The touch sensitivity is not that great, it still lags and is not smooth in transitions. The positives as below: The speaker is amazingly loud. The display is bright, vivid and colorful. Sleep tracking. Stress tracking currently only available for Android. Battery life is amazing. The design and the strap.

    A great challenger in the smart watch market

    From the moment I took the watch out of the box, I was very much in love with the design, look and feel of the watch. Even the box had a luxury feel to it. The brown strap feels good quality and there was a bonus of a black strap inside the box, which I was not expecting. the screen is bright and well organised for each of the functions and i didn't need the manual at all during set up. It charged up quickly and the set up was simple to complete. I downloaded the app onto my Huawei P20 smart phone and it was very quick and easy to pair off. I applied the latest update to the watch which was quick and efficient, so I was ready to put it to the test. So off I went walk about. It kept my details well and the app was simple to use. The user interface was very intuitive and very easy to use. I enjoyed changing the various different faces available on the watch. The battery lasted much better than I expected, and the magnetic charger was a nice touch for ensuring a simple connection to charge. The GPS worked well and was very accurate. The watch is almost good enough to be used as an entity in it’s own right, and the mobile connection as a tracker add on. I have certainly used the watch more than the app so far. Overall I think this is an excellent product for a very reasonable price. I give it 5 out of 5 stars
