Design And Display

The new Huawei Watch GT 2 is available is available in three editions – Sport, Classical and Elite. The specs across all three editions are identical, but they have different finishes and straps, from fluorine rubber to leather, to metal.

Huawei Watch GT 2 integrates a high quality 3D glass face to create the bezel-less vision. The right-hand edge of the device has two buttons for interacting with the device, but most of the time you’ll likely find yourself using the touchscreen, which feels smooth under the finger. Huawei Watch GT 2 has lots of specially designed watch faces for you to select and customise. You can choose from traditional or modern digital watch faces and find one that suits your style.

Around the back of the Huawei Watch GT 2 is a slightly raised heart rate monitor, bookended by two POGO pin connectors for charging. There’s a proprietary charging disc that ships with the watch as well as a USB-A to USB-C cable.

There are now two sizes in the range. Last year’s model was a 46 mm diameter watch (with a 22 mm strap) and this year’s offers the same size but a second version scales things down a bit, with a 42 mm option available, too (20 mm strap).

The 46 mm model has a 1.39-inch AMOLED display, with a resolution of 454 x 454, while the 42 mm cuts things back slightly – it’s a 1.2-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 390 x 390.. They’re incredibly crisp.

Huawei used its own wearable processor for the Watch GT 2, the Kirin A1, which also to be found in the new Free Buds 3 true wireless earphones that Huawei launched at IFA 2019 a few weeks back. And there’s also Bluetooth 5.1 on board as well as GPS of course.

You can now receive calls on the watch itself instead of just being able to answer and reject calls on your phone and there’s an integrated speaker and microphone. There are no SIM on board the watch, everything is still done via your phone. Of course, you get all the notifications you want from your phone when it’s connected.

In terms of battery life, The 46 mm model has 455 mAh Battery and it’ll give you 2 weeks of Battery life, and the 42 mm model has 215 mAh Battery and it’ll give you 1 weeks of Battery life.

There’s a proprietary charger as you might expect, but it connects to the actual charger via USB-C so it’s easy to charge the watch from another USB-C device, for example.

The interface, Huawei’s Lite OS is also light and very easy to navigate around. One aspect of using its own operating system is that – the clue’s in the name – it doesn’t need a lot of RAM to operate. In fact, the Huawei Watch GT 2 only have 16 MB (42 mm) or 32 MB of RAM (46 mm). That’s not a typo, we really do mean MB. And clearly it’s frugal on battery, too.

From a health-tracking point of view, Huawei has also included stress monitoring to the mix, as well as a barometer to measure air pressure and detailed sleep tracking too. That’s to compliment the 15 sports tracking modes that don’t seem to throw up anything new on the tracking front. If you like running, cycling or even after something to track your triathlons, you’re going to be covered here.

Music playback is also supported as you’d expect and there is space for 500 songs in total (4GB) and naturally you can connect headphones directly to the watch if you want to go phone-free. The welcome always-on screen mode is not a default and, of course, there will be a knock-on effect on battery life if you enable it.

Fitbit Inspire HR Review | A Fitness Tracker With Heart Rate Monitor




Fitbit Inspire HR

Fitbit offers three fitness bands; the latest and least expensive the Fitbit Inspire HR, debuted earlier this summer. The beauty of the Fitbit Inspire HR is that, in essence, it combines the best of its pricier siblings — the aesthetics of the Alta HR and the guts of the Charge 3 — making it ideal for those who are new to Fitbits as well as seasoned wearers who think it’s time for an update.

Here are all the details of Fitbit Inspire HR Fitness Tracker.

Fitbit Inspire HR Features:

  • Touchscreen OLED display With touchscreen
  • Interchangeable straps
  • Slim and slender design
  • Customize with clock face options
  • Swimproof and swim tracking
  • HR, VO2 Max, Connected GPS
  • Real-Time Pace & Distance
  • 24/7 Heart rate, Activity and advanced sleep tracking
  • 15+ Goal-based exercise modes
  • Automatic Exercise Recognition
  • Smartphone on-Screen Notifications
  • Five-day battery life
  • Special charger
  • Fitbit app
  • iOS and Android

The Fitbit Inspire HR is small but you can pair it with jewelry without feeling like your wrist is overcrowded.The Fitbit Inspire HR has a slim design, with a curved touchscreen display dominating. The plastic case that houses the tracker is shaped similarly to the Charge 3, with a concave back, but the heart rate sensor, Charging pins and a Fitbit logo sits below makes it a little thick toward the bottom. Despite this, the Inspire HR is super lightweight and comfortable to wear all day. On the right side of the case is a button that turns the display on and off and takes you back to the previous screen. A long press brings you to battery percentage and shortcuts to turn screen wake and notifications on or off.

With 128-by-72-pixel resolution, the Inspire HR’s monochrome OLED display is sharp enough and bright. But measuring 0.72 inches diagonally, it could be bigger for the size of the case. Instead, the display is surrounded by a pretty thick bezel on all sides. That means you’re only able to view one tile of information at a time, and will have to scroll a few times to read through long text messages.

The OLED touchscreen itself is crisp and clear too. A quick tap and metrics appear at the bottom of the main clock display, plus it’s bright enough when worn outside too.

Like all other Fitbit devices, though, the Fitbit Inspire HR features interchangeable straps. There’s a silicone strap as standard – which we actually really like as it’s easy to keep clean and it’s comfortable too – while several other official options, including leather and metal, are available for purchase. The mechanism for changing the straps has changed for the Inspire devices, with both models offering quick-release pins for a more refined look.

The Fitbit Inspire HR features 5 ATM of water resistance, so you can also wear it in the pool and in the shower without damaging it. All-day activity and sleep tracking are available on the Inspire HR, while Fitbit’s Smart Track feature offers automatic exercise recognition.

The Fitbit Inspire HR also offers 24/7 continuous heart-rate tracking, Connected GPS, VO 2 Max and 15 goal-based exercises, which include running, cycling and swimming – all of which the standard Inspire model doesn’t have. The goal-based exercise feature launched on the Charge 3 and allows you to choose a specific goal for those exercises, such as duration or calories. Female health tracking is also on board – a feature that launched in 2018 on the Fitbit Versa – which is also available on the Fitbit Inspire too.

the Inspire HR offers more advanced sleep tracking than the standard model. The Inspire HR has sleep stages like the Charge 3, meaning users will get time awake, time in REM, time in light sleep and time in deep sleep.

In terms of battery life, the Fitbit promises Inspire HR can last up to five days life per charge. In terms of charging, The Inspire HR use a small cable included in the box, with a specific charging dock. The pins on the underside of the HR will need to be lined up to the pins on the charging dock for charging to take place.

Fitbit software is available for iOS and Android users. In terms of Fitbit app, Everything is simple to access and the app has a great layout, offering all the data and stats you could want in an easy-to-understand format. If you are already a Fitbit user, switching over to the Inspire HR is a piece of cake. All you’ll need to do is setup the new device and all your past data will still be visible, while you start collecting new data on the new device.
