With the original models, Huawei opted for introducing its own wearable OS in the smartwatches, instead of using Google’s WearOS, and apparently, the company will repeat this with the newer models. Apart from this, the wearables will support Android and iOS and comes with all the expected features that are present in nowadays wearables. That includes a heart-rate monitor, sleep tracking, pedometer and more features related to workout. The battery should ensure a long endurance in the newer smartwatches, however, this is due to the fact that the OS is kinda limited in comparison to other Watches in the market. As you might expect, the newer models shouldn’t come with support for third-party apps.
According to the report, the GT Active will come in Dark Green and Orange, and the GT Elegant in White and Black. The latter model will retail for about $280, while the former will cost $257.
