Huawei has today announced the availability of its next-gen smartwatch. The Huawei GT3 Watch is powered by Harmony OS 2.1, making it the first Harmony OS device in the market. There are two models that will be available:
- A smaller 42mm version and
- A bigger 46mm version.
Huawei Mobile Kenya has said that the watch will be retailing from KES 32,999 and will be available across all its retail stores in the country.
The 46mm version, Huawei says, supports a 14-day battery life in typical usage, while the 42mm version offers 7-day of long battery life in typical usage. The longer battery life ensures users can wear it all day and use it continuously, even during sleep.
The Watch supports Huawei’s TruSeenTM 5.0+ heart rate monitoring technology, Dual-Band Five-System GNSS positioning, continuous, real-time, and accurate SpO2, sleep, stress, and menstrual cycle monitoring, and 100 workout modes.
