Huawei Watch GT to run custom software on an efficient Cortex-M4 CPU

09 October 2018
The watch has a larger screen than the Huawei Watch 2 Pro and promises great battery life. But no Wear OS.

Sort by:

Hope they can last at least a week othervise its another junk like last opieces from apple or Samsung gear.

              I was expecting a successor to the great Huawei Watch gen1, but no Wear OS make me grin. Software updates, apps and app integration with Android cannot be as good as Wear OS's.

                Hopefully, it should not only be IP68 (1.5 m waterproof), but should also be MIL-STD rated as well as be waterproof upto 50 metres like the Samsung Galaxy Watch.

                    custom os = ultimate fail. regardless of specs.

                    you will be locked in their custom os like iOS.. the only diff is.. NO APPzzz.

                    thats why samsung gear or watch suck. forums filled with angry people saying lack of whatsapp, skype or google assistant.

                    Even the most supported taizen samsung watches

                      Nothing can be compared to Apple watch, from any perspective.

                          Hope the OS is a full functional system as Wear OS is a tried and tested product. Details so far are very encouraging

                            dude111, 09 Oct 2018Hmmmm I dont know how slow that thing will be. Those "... moreYeah the M series is for ultra low energy purposes. Either the M4 here are on 7nm with high GHz, or Huwowee's OS for the smartwatch will be featureless

                            That said the E9110 remains the best smartwatch SoC

                              Oflife, 09 Oct 2018Gear S3 still the best. Fast, wireless charging, rotary dia... moreIt's HUAWEI, not wowee. ^^;

                                Hmmmm

                                I dont know how slow that thing will be.
                                Those "M" cores mainly use is as coprocessors.
                                Apple used the M3 on the A9 to enable "always listen", accelerometer and other stuff like that.

                                  Good move form Huawei, they use their own software and newer chips

                                    Gear S3 still the best. Fast, wireless charging, rotary dial, gr8 screen, loud speaker etc. If this Wowee is equal or better and can access Google Voice then we have a winner because one flaw of S3 is lack of Google ecosystem

                                        Custom os = no buy for me.
                                        I was hoping that this will be finally a good upgrade from my G Watch R, well maybe there will be something interesting next year at MWC.
