Huawei releases more wearables - Watch GT2 Pro, FreeBuds Pro, Watch Fit

I've been all about my wearables this past summer.  I've gotten so used to wearing my watch, and a set of earbuds are never far from me to crank out the tunes.

Huawei seems to get that - sensing the room that a lot of people got way more active these days and are looking for some wearable tech and released 3 new devices today:

Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro - I'm curious about this as I'm thinking it's time to replace the watch (WearOS seems to be all but forgotten by Android)

Huawei Watch Fit - maybe I don't need a full WearOS watch, I did like the MiBand, maybe this is all I need now (without YouTubeMusic support...)

Huawei FreeBuds Pro - loved the ones I used - hopefully these fix some of what I was missing.

Huawei expands all-scenario product portfolio with new audio and wearable products

HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro, HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro, and HUAWEI WATCH FIT coming to Canada this October

MARKHAM, ON—10 September 2020—Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG) today hosted the Huawei Seamless AI Life New Products Global Launch event, where the company announced six new products[1] that further enrich the 1+8+N all-scenario ecosystem.

Some of the new products revealed during today’s keynote include: HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro, a new pro-variant of the highly acclaimed audio products featuring improved Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), new designs and user-centric features; and HUAWEI WATCH GT2 Pro and HUAWEI WATCH FIT, the latest entries to Huawei’s wearable product line-up with striking aesthetics, new fitness data tracking features and workout mode.

During the keynote, Huawei also reaffirmed its commitment to the All-scenario Seamless AI Life Strategy and working with partners to nurture the 1+8+N ecosystem. The products launched today are all designed to bring a more cohesive connected experience to consumers in their everyday lives, in scenarios ranging from work, health and fitness to audio entertainment, echoing Huawei’s mission to build a better connected world.

Richard Yu, Executive Director and CEO of Huawei Consumer BG, said: “Great user experiences are always founded on innovation, but our journey of innovation always begins and ends with consumers. In future, we will continue working with our valued partners to offer more smart and high-quality experiences to consumers worldwide.”

HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro: ANC and immersive audio on demand

HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro are the world’s first true wireless stereo (TWS) earphones to support intelligent dynamic noise cancellation. Featuring a hardware and software integrated solution, the new TWS earphones intelligently identify the type of ambient noise based on the user’s immediate surroundings and switch between three profiles – General, Cosy and Ultimate – to offer the optimal noise cancelling performance. Further, HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro delivers the best noise cancelling performance yet on a Huawei audio product with an industry-leading noise cancellation rating of 40dB[2]. Dual Connection with Android, iOS and Windows smart systems means users can seamlessly switch between devices without being tied to one brand, and the new gesture control enables users to easily take control of the earphones by performing a swipe or a pinch on the cubic earphone stem.

HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro & HUAWEI WATCH FIT: practical pro-grade features for everyday use

Huawei continues to expand the HUAWEI WATCH family with new products that are steeped in innovations that add scientific flair to make keeping fit and healthy easy.

The new HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro not only come with features that consumers have come to love on the HUAWEI WATCH GT Series, the elegantly modern smartwatch also offers up to two weeks of battery life, more than 100 workout modes, plus pro-grade fitness data tracking features.

Health tracking features are at their most advanced yet with the upgraded HUAWEI TruSeen™ 4.0+ providing more accurate heart rate readings. Huawei has introduced new workout modes including Skiing, Cross Country Skiing, Snowboarding and Golf Driving Range. These join the existing range to provide users with real-time performance tracking and analyses for professional sports.

The new flagship smartwatch launches with a rugged design featuring premium materials, including a sapphire watch crystal, titanium case and skin-friendly ceramic case back that combines with another sapphire glass black to enhance monitoring accuracy and wearing comfort. Additionally, HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro supports apps to provide a convenient means for users to get even more features. Huawei also plans to further augment the smart experience on offer in the future.

Launched alongside the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro, HUAWEI WATCH FIT is the first Huawei sports smartwatch to feature a rounded rectangular watch face design. The smartwatch combines a dazzling 1.64-inch AMOLED display, which lends itself to displaying more content and a better interaction experience.

At 34g, the HUAWEI WATCH FIT feels as light as a sports wristband. The watch features newly upgraded HUAWEI TruSeen™ 4.0 heart rate technology, which leverages Huawei’s own multi-sensor AI neural network algorithm and advanced PPG components to provide more accurate, 24-hour heart monitoring to track changes in blood oxygen, sleep and stress conditions. All the data is also analysed to generate fitness advice that helps users lead better, healthier lives.

HUAWEI WATCH FIT is the first Huawei smartwatch to support Quick-workout Animations[3]. By combining 44 standard fitness routines (including fat burn, shoulder muscle relief, body sculpting and other routines) into 12 animations, this feature provides a quick and easy way for users to work out at a moment’s notice. HUAWEI WATCH FIT offers 13 running classes that are specifically tailored for jogging enthusiasts. Running pace is analysed scientifically with results provided in real time to help users optimise their workout. Further, as the ideal outdoor companion, the smartwatch comes with 96 workout modes, built-in GPS and 5ATM water resistance.

While compact, the smartphone supports up to 10-day battery in typical scenarios[4]. HUAWEI WATCH FIT also supports Huawei’s fast charging technology. Five minutes of charging can provide enough charge to sustain the smartwatch for an entire day of typical use[5].
