Did anyone have successfully pairing with cadence tracker. Please help me to share list, thank you

The GT runner's data screens in a run decreased in size after a new update, its much harder to see my time during a run now

Kk, 26 Mar 2022Yes, it now can connect to polar h10 perfectly. I am using oneThank you for the info friend.
Did you compare the polar h10 with the watch sensor? For your activities does it have a difference? Thanks again.

Some say that with latest firmware the watch is able to pair with polar h10 chest trap? Can anybody confirm this? Thank you.

The GT Runner is not worth the surcharge. Currently (HarmonyOS 184.108.40.206) no footpod support, no running power meter support, no general HR chest strap support. Heart rate sampling is still 5 seconds - unusable. A-GPS support is crappy. Huawei Health track export feature does not yet include heart rate data (neither iOS nor Android).
The GNSS track wasn’t convincing either, compared to my Garmin FR745.

Compare i... moreThe only thing that is almost true in comparing these two devices is the price difference between gt2e and gt runner. It's not 3x, it's 2.8x but ok, almost. And I can say that is big price difference, little to much. Everything else you need to except and realize. First, it's hard to compare because gt runner is watch specialy made for runners, and everything is about that, with some normal smart watch features. But here is the deal: gt ruuner is lighter than gt2e, have polymer fiber material, and very stylish look for runners watch. Gt runner have much more accurate GPS than GT2e, due to 5 satelite system, and bigger antena. GT runner have new and accurate HR sensor. Gt runner have external sensor support(speed/cadence, HRstrap, footpod...), GT2e doesn't. Gt runner is more customizable for running, have much more stats for runners needs(predicted times,running coach, more programs, ability index..). Gt runner have microphone, GT2e doesn't. GT runner have better batery, not by much, but it's better. Also, much newer and better watchfaces is available for GT runner than GT2e. At the and, GT runner is new device, and as always, prices are high at start.
For me, as a runner, price difference is reasonable. Maybe a little to much, but it's ok. Everyone have their favorite watch and favorite specs. But it isn't nice of you to citicize without real facts. Ok, the watch is not for you, and you think is expensive, but you need to be realistic.

yalim, 19 Nov 2021this watch is dead due to €300 price. it must be below €230... moreHR sensor on the GT Runner and the GT3 are found to be among the most accurate on the market now. Battery life is superior and among the best on the market. The Runner edition is extremely light (~38.5 g) due to the light polymer fibers used to make its case. It's an excellent choice for runners.

On the GT2 family you got interpolated (obviously fake) GNSS track, you got heart rate data with 5s sample rate. There is no external sensor support (e.g. HR chest strap, footpod, speed/cadence sensor, power meter, etc.), there is no web portal. I wouldn’t call it top notch running and fitness analytics.
I hope GT3 and GT Runner will be different, based on their thick price tag. For that amount of money you can easily buy a mid range Coros/Suunto/Polar/Wahoo/Garmin watch.

tsaic, 19 Nov 2021From my personal experience, hawing Huawei Watch GT2 Pro, I... moreYou must have faulty device. I'm an amateur runner and have the same watch for 9 months, no problem whatsoever, battery is simply great especially having in mind AMOLED screen. GT2 Pro is with titanium case, sapphire glass and ceramic back. You can buy new one for 200€, and how much is cheapest Garmin with such materials? A small fortune I guess.
Also GT2 Pro uses First Beat algorithms. Garmin uses the same, as a matter of fact Garmin bought First Beat recently, so GT2 Pro has top notch running and fitness analytics.
All in all I'm very happy Huawei watch user and am looking forward to see how GT Runner is preforming.

The heart rate has eight photodiodes (compared to The crappy apple watch series 6 only has 4 photodiodes). The material is made of special durable polymer-fibre for light weight. Check it again mate. Note, it's made for running. GPS/Heart rate/weight are the critical components that we need.

Huawei, please Smart companion or training assistance for cyclist beside running will be very appreciated.

Huawei watches are the best period

So I bought GT 2e, last year - for like 100 EUR. Compare it to this side by side - I can find absolutely no reason this GT RUNNER costs 3x as much. It even has a plastic frame LOL!. Unbelievable - who is gonna buy this? Huawei lost their mind and think they can become the next apple in prices and sheep buying their stuff. Ridiculous. I already decided not to buy their phones anymore - not to their fault, but no official google support. And the same goes with their other hardware. After this watch dies - I am buying something else that's for sure

:D no that not right I just has 2 promotion cashbacks from them and im in UK, you must fill in wrong info .

I brought the GT2 smart watch at £120 and what they don't tell you is that the so called metal that is directly at the back of the watch which measures everything for the watch is made out of Nickel....in which I was allergic to and gave me a very red sore and then blisters. They need to state what the whole watch is made from as I'm not the only one this has happened too I'm sure! They didn't want to know when I complained. Shocking!!!!!!
