The Huawei Watch GT 2 46mm and 42mm models are all about style, usability, but most importantly, fitness. In today’s fast-paced world, owning a fitness tracker that can keep up with your lifestyle is so important to your health.
Luckily, you don’t need to look far for one. The Huawei Watch GT 2 is the device you’ve been searching for.
Why, you ask? Here are five fitness and health-orientated features that makes choosing the Watch GT 2 as your wearable of choice an easy decision.
1. Detailed sleep tracking
Huawei’s TruSleep technology stays up all night even when you’re fast asleep.
It monitors the quality of your rest, and in the morning breaks down your sleep stages in minute detail. It compares the amount of deep, light, and REM sleep you experienced throughout the night to the expected amount of sleep suggested by academics.
Unlike other sleep tracking bands, the Huawei Watch GT 2, via the Huawei Health app, also explains why you may feel more refreshed or tired than the night before.
If you ever wanted to improve your rest to boost your energy during the day, the Huawei Watch GT 2 is the sleep tracker for you.
2. Automatic stress tracking
Stress is a word we’re all too familiar with, especially as the end of the year draws ever closer. With deadlines piling up, it’s easy to forget the important things in life and succumb to panicked thoughts.
But the Huawei Watch GT 2 tracks stress too, and recognises when those tension levels grow too high.
How does it do this? The Watch GT 2 finds your baseline stress levels by asking you ten questions about your life. These have been developed in conjunction with academics. Using your resting heart rate as a base, it then monitors the non-exercise related increases throughout the day, and therefore your stress levels.
If the world gets too much, the Watch GT 2 will ask you to take a step back and breathe.
3. Realtime heart-rate monitoring
Monitoring your heart-rate is an important metric for in gauging your overall health, and the Huawei Watch GT 2 does this exceptionally well too.
It monitors your heart beats while you’re sleeping, when you wake up, during exercise, and as you get on with your day without you probably noticing at all.
In the Huawei Health app, you can then view the deviations, your minimum, maximum, and average heart rate across the day too.
More importantly, you can also view the resting heart rate that day, which is a true indicator of your actual health.
4. Detailed workout tracking
The Huawei Watch GT 2 also tracks your workouts, while you’re on the road, in the gym, or in the pool.
A built-in GPS tracks your route, while the watch also keeps tabs on your effort exerted by monitoring your maximum heart-rate.
It will also suggest how long you should take to recover from your workout, as well as the impact your latest exercises have had on your health.
With 13 running courses, and the ability to track a number of other workouts, including hiking, swimming, rowing and the elliptical, the Watch GT 2 is an excellent workout partner.
5. Breathing exercises
Health isn’t all about working up a sweat though. Focusing on your breathing is also key to improving your mood and well-being.
The Huawei Watch GT 2 also features a number of exercises to remind you that inhaling and exhaling is just as important as other fitness metrics.
On the Watch GT 2, select “Breathing Exercises” to get started. You can select your rhythm, the duration of the exercise, and then hit begin.
The Watch GT 2 will then guide you through a relaxing session of mindfulness and calm.
