Huawei Watch GT 2 leaks with smaller bezels, bigger battery

Vlad, 02 September 2019

The Huawei Watch GT made its debut last October alongside the Mate 20 series, and it looks like this year the Chinese company is preparing a follow-up that will most likely be unveiled on September 19 at the Mate 30 event - that is, if it doesn't see the light of day at a separate IFA presentation this week.

It boasts a slightly larger screen and smaller bezels, and it's thinner and more compact overall. It's also got a larger battery, at 445 mAh (up from 420 mAh). The Watch GT 2 will employ a mic and speaker as well, which means you might be able to make calls directly on it - and that makes us wonder whether it has a version with some sort of cellular connectivity.

GPS is still built-in, as is the optical heart rate monitor, and as you can see from the pictures you will get a choice of two styles. The Huawei Watch GT 2 Sport is the all-black model with the sporty rubber band, while the Watch GT 2 Classic is the black/silver one with the brown leather strap. Powering both of these is Huawei's proprietary wearable platform, no trace of Wear OS by Google here.

i would say its 10:08 on friday the 18th October
