Today, we probably had Huawei’s biggest event of 2021. The company unveiled the Huawei P50 and P50 Pro after many delays. The devices come with Snapdragon 888 and Kirin 9000 SoCs and will be available worldwide. The only drawback is the lack of 5G connectivity. However, the whole package may justify since the devices bring unique design, gorgeous OLED displays, and Leica-branded cameras. In addition to the new smartphones, the Chinese firm also introduced new wearables like the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro ECG and Huawei Band 6 Pro. These devices are incremental upgrades over the standard versions. The notable ones include electrocardiogram for the Wath GT and body temperature measurements for the Huawei Band 6 Pro.
Huawei Watch 2 Pro
The Huawei Watch 2 Pro ECG is identical in size and features to the regular Watch GT 2 Pro. The wearable comes with a round dial with a 1.39-inch AMOLED display. The notable point is that it comes with Sapphire Crystal-infused glass protection and a titanium frame. So, it stands as one of the most durable wearables in the market. In terms of features, the wearable packs some neat features such as Blood Oxygen Monitoring (SpO2 sensor). This has been one of the most requested features since the pandemic. Moreover, the device comes with sleep and stress measurements. It runs Huawei Lite OS and comes with over 100 sports modes.

The wearable is priced at CNY 3,088 which can be converted to $478. The first sales will be open on August 12. If you’re a fan of vivid colors, the wearable will disappoint you. After all, it only comes in a single colorway.
Huawei Band 6 Pro
The Huawei Band 6 Pro comes with a bigger 1.47-inch AMOLED display. It also comes with a SpO2 sensor offering blood oxygen readings, the device also has sleep and stress tracking. The wearable also packs the body temperature tracker as well as 96 sports modes, four less than the smartwatch. The company is confident that the device’s battery will be enough for two weeks of moderate usage. The band will be available on August 20 and the price is set at CNY 499 ($70) which is surprisingly cheap for everything that it has to offer.
These devices will join the myriad of other good devices in the Chinese market. For now, we’re curious to see if Huawei will bring them to global markets and when this will happen. There is a strong chance since the company is bringing the duo of flagship smartphones very soon. What is easier to launch? A pair of smartphones, or a pair of smartwatches?
