Tech review: Huawei Watch GT is affordable and good-looking

At a time when many thought Huawei has given up on the wearables market, the Chinese company launched its latest smartwatch, Watch GT Measuring at only 10.6mm thick, the Watch GT has a round 1.39-inch Amoled touchscreen display with a resolution of 454 x 454 pixels and is available in two models - Classic and Sport The Watch GT comes with a barometer, altimeter, accelerometer and a built-in heart rate monitor that provides all-day tracking of your heart rate as well as built-in GPS to track your runs.

Huawei is not allowing third-party support for Lite OS Interestingly, you have to use the Huawei Health app to pair with the Watch GT It makes me wonder if the Watch GT is a smartwatch or a fitness tracker.

For tracking steps, the Watch GT's readings were only 3 per cent off from the readings of my calibrated Apple Watch Series 4 For sleep tracking, the Watch GT is as accurate as Fitbit which - in my opinion - is the leading sleep tracker for fitness trackers In this review with the Watch GT paired to an Android smartphone all the time, I found the smartwatch to have 50 per cent battery life on the sixth day after a full charge.

Verdict: The Huawei Watch GT is more of a fitness tracker that looks like a smartwatch, at a very affordable price. . More
