News of the second generation of HUAWEI WATCH GT

On the second day of the developer conference, Zhang Wei, president of Huawei's consumer smart wear and sports health product line, gave an interview with the media to discuss Huawei's products and strategies in smart wear and sports health. It also revealed to the media the news of the second generation of HUAWEI WATCH GT watches.

Last fall, Huawei released the HUAWEI WATCH GT smartwatch, which features a sports watch with a two-chip architecture while maintaining a long run. Since the launch, it has attracted a lot of consumer attention and has exceeded Huawei's expectations several times. On June 21 this year, global shipments of HUAWEI WATCH GT smartwatches exceeded 2 million units, while, WATCH GT led Huawei to increase its wearable shipments by 282.2% in the first quarter compared with the same period last year, making it the third largest increase in the world.

In an interview, Zhang Wei revealed the news of the second generation of WATCH GT smartwatch. Zhang Wei said that Huawei has achieved the function of smartwatch through an innovative dual-chip architecture while maintaining a long battery life, and will continue to adhere to this direction in the future. Keep the watch functional and long-lasting, and will do better with the WATCH GT series, which will soon be available to consumers. The cellular version is also planned, but it may take a little longer.

Zhang Wei did not disclose the exact release date of the second generation of WATCH GT smartwatch, but it is speculated that the second generation of, WATCH GT is expected to make a simultaneous debut at the Mate 30 series launch in the second half of this year. Earlier, it was reported that the Mate 30 series launch was scheduled for September this year.

In response to WATCH GT's dial market problems, Huawei will provide a themed operations team to operate the dial free of charge and in various forms, and developers can also benefit from the dial. Consumers can get more third-party and designer-designed watches that can be downloaded to the GT or even included in the new bracelet.

In the interview, Zhang Wei stressed that Huawei is committed to creating a full-scene intelligent life experience for consumers, including five major scenarios: sports health, intelligent travel, audio-visual entertainment, smart home, and mobile office. Intelligent wearable device is not only the core terminal device to carry sports health scene, but also an important component of other scenarios. The five major scenarios complement each other and have a positive and positive impact on each other. At the same time, they also include mutual promotion and promotion in sales.

Huawei Band 4e released

It is worth mentioning that on the day of the interview, Huawei also launched the Huawei bracelet 4e basketball spirit specifically for the Basketball World Cup at the end of August, which is a new bracelet for basketball enthusiasts, which can be worn on their hands. You can also wear some parameter data and evaluation recommendations to record basketball movements on your shoes. The product will go on sale on Aug. 22 at a price of 129RMB.

Zhang Wei believes that smartwatches will partly replace traditional watches in the future. At the same time, for female users, Huawei will also have more female product models and styles, including metal, weaving, more environmentally friendly, more skin-friendly material strap, so that the wearing experience is getting better and better. Huawei will also have new watches and bracelets in the second half of the year, Zhang said. Later, you will see that we continue to launch products that experience better, and I believe our share will continue to increase in the future.
