The Pitch

There are days where it feels like Huawei is the tech brand for those who live for the drama. There are also days where it feels like the Chinese company could well end up becoming the next Samsung. Although the climate is looking increasingly-tenuous for Huawei’s enterprise and B2B telecommunications business, their consumer division continues to be hard at work. And if you’re going to be the next Samsung, logic says you need your own smartwatch.

The Huawei Watch GT isn’t the company’s first effort at cracking the space but it is, in many ways, their most interesting. At least on paper. In practice, the Huawei Watch GT is a little bit boring. It ticks most of the boxes and it sets a new benchmark for battery life but it doesn’t feel as impressive or exciting as it ought to.

If you’re a person who lives and dies by the numbers, you might well find what you’re looking for in the Watch GT. However, beyond the battery life, there’s little to love here.
