Last Saturday, Huawei officially launched their newest smart wearables—the Watch GT 2, Band 4, and Band 4e—with an active afternoon to have us burn off the lunch that was served. With various workout stations like treadmills, stationary bikes, a basketball area, and others including a zumba session, Huawei’s fitness day encouraged the community to try out the smart wearables and push themselves to be more active.

The Watch GT 2 (46 and 42mm)

I’ll hold off my gushing about the Watch GT 2 for now, but I’ll tell you that it’s great. It looks sleek and polished with its 1.39-inch AMOLED screen that is customizable (so it can look dressy or sporty depending on what you’re doing). Huawei boasts of its 2-week battery life, various sports training functions, heart rate monitoring, sleep monitoring, and stress monitoring. It can also play music in itself and take calls. The Watch GT 2 is also waterproof up to 5ATM (50 meters) so you can take it for a dip in the pool.

Watch GT 2 46mm in Pebble Brown

The Watch GT 2 46mm retails at P10,990 for the sporty Matte Black (fluoroelastomer strap) variant and P13,990 for the classy Pebble Brown (leather) variant.

It also comes in a smaller 42mm version that has lighter features (shorter battery life, no mic and speaker, and a 1.2-inch screen) that retails at P9,990 for the night black variant and P13,990 for the Refined Gold variant.

The straps of the Watch GT 2 are also interchangeable from leather, to fluoroelastomer, to a Milanese strap (for the 42mm).

The Band 4 and 4e

Huawei’s subsidiary Honor released the Band 5 recently and now Huawei has brought a rebranded version of it with the Band 4. It’s pretty much the same thing except for the button—in which Honor’s is rounded while the Huawei one is pill-shaped. It sports a 0.96-inch TFT color screen with customizable watch faces (the Honor band 5 has a 0.95 AMOLED screen) and has Huawei’s host of health-monitoring features such as TruSeen 3.5, TruSleep 2.0 which monitor heart rate and sleep, respectively. It also comes with 9 different exercise modes to choose from and is waterproof for up to 5ATM. The Band 4 retails at P1,890.

Basketball tracker of the Band 4e

The main selling point of the Band 4e, on the other hand (the ‘e’ stands for ‘extension’ by the way) is that it is a basketball tracker. It features a soft, stretchy strap made of recycled material (great, if you’re not really into the usual rubber straps, like me) and can be attached to your shoe. Ideally used along with the Band 4, most of its distinct features are used while it is strapped onto your shoe. It can measure the height of your leaps while playing basketball and give you an in-depth analysis on your overall game performance. It is also a good running companion with its 6-axis motion sensor which can help you accurately track your footfalls, speed, and distance per run. The Band 4e is also waterproof for up to 5ATM (50 meters) and retails at P1,390.
