Today Huawei rolled out a couple of new wearable devices: one for your wrist and one for your ears.
One major new feature that the GT 2 Pro gets, though, is wireless charging support. Huawei touts that you can get 10 hours of battery life with just 5 minutes of wireless quick charging. The battery on the watch is expected to last two weeks on a single charge.
The display on the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro is a 1.39-inch 454x454 AMOLED touchscreen, just like the larger of the regular GT 2 models. It's powered by a Kirin A1 processor and includes 2GB of storage so you can listen to music directly on your watch.
A major focus of Huawei's new GT 2 Pro watch is activity tracking. There are more than 100 workout modes included, such as a Golf Mode that can analyze your swing and a mode for skiing and snowboarding that can give you data related to the slope, sliding distance, and your average speed. There are modes for running, walking, elliptical, and rowing, too, and the watch itself includes 5ATM water resistance to stand up to your swims.
Sleep tracking is included as well, as the watch can monitor your heart rate while you sleep, analyze your breathing, and give you a score on your overall sleep quality when you wake up.
The Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro runs Lite OS and is compatible with Android and iOS smartphones. You can do things like answer calls on your watch when it's paired with a phone, and Android users can use the GT 2 Pro as a remote shutter for their phone's camera.
The Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro will launch later this month at a starting price of €329 ($392 USD) for the Sport model and €349 ($415 USD) for the Classic version.
Also announced today are the new Huawei FreeBuds Pro. These truly wireless earbuds include active noise cancellation, including a feature Huawei calls Intelligent Dynamic ANC that allows the FreeBuds Pro to recognize the sounds going on around you and automatically set the noise cancellation to one of three modes: Ultra, Cozy, or General.
Huawei has also included a Natural Awareness Mode that uses the dual microphones on the FreeBuds Pro to let you hear what's going on around you.
The stalks of the Huawei FreeBuds Pro have a Force Sensor that you can pinch to turn active noise cancellation on or off, and you can slide your finger up and down them to adjust the volume of whatever you're listening to.
When it comes to battery life, Huawei says the FreeBuds Pro can get you 4.5 hours of music playback with noise cancellation on or 7 hours with the noise cancellation turned off. When you add in the battery power of the charging case, you can get up to 30 hours of use with the FreeBuds Pro before you have to recharge.
Huawei's FreeBuds Pro will launch in October for €199 ($237 USD).
