Tech giants HUAWEI have released their new flagship smartwatch – the WATCH GT 4.

On detailed inspection of this new creation, FACT found it to be HUAWEI’s best-looking and most health-conscious smartwatch offering to date.

Look & Feel

The HUAWEI GT 4 has deviated from the design language that defined previous generations by introducing inventive new elements. Coming in two sizes, the 41mm and the 46mm, these new devices look and feel like classic premium watches, unlike the many easily recognisable smartwatches available on the market.

We appreciated the octagonal design of the 46mm option’s stainless-steel bezel that includes 24-hour indicators. This model boasts a 1.43-inch AMOLED colour screen with a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels and a density of 326PPI. The 41mm version adopts a pendant-like design that exudes an air of grace and sophistication. It features a 1.32-inch AMOLED colour screen with a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels and a density of 352PPI.

The GT 4 comes with a range of options, colours and finishes, enabling the owner to personalise the watch’s appearance. The face itself has plenty of customisations, many of which we effortlessly downloaded via the HUAWEI app. Our model also featured a high-quality green composite rubber and cloth strap that was easily removable, making it simple to swap out for other options. Although solid in design, the 10.9mm thick device is light and comfortable while retaining the feel of a genuine, quality watch. We wore it for hours without really noticing it was there.

Functionality & Connectivity

We discovered the functionality of the smartwatch to be both fast and smooth. Besides the now-standard Bluetooth calls and reminders such as emails and social media messages, it supports effortless compatibility and connectivity with both Android and iOS-powered devices.

Health & Workouts

HUAWEI’s classy new generation offering debuts the all-new Stay Fit app and upgraded GNSS tracking, all made better with the new TruSeen 5.5+ that brings AI-powered accuracy to health measurement. All this empowers and motivates the owner to achieve a better, fitter self.

By utilising the smartwatch’s LED sensors, PPG measures changes in blood volume and alerts users of irregular heartbeats using Pulse Wave Arrhythmia Analysis. The gadget also supports more than 100 sports modes and workout types and even monitors calorie consumption.

Battery Life

One of our top-rated features was the exceptional battery life. The battery can last up to 14 days on the 46mm and up to seven on the 41mm with essential use only. This length of time decreases to around two to four days with excessive usage. A wireless charging cradle is included in the package, allowing you to charge on the go.

Our Verdict

HUAWEI has outdone itself with the new WATCH GT 4. We strongly recommend anyone in the market looking for a highly functional, beautifully designed smartwatch, with a classic watch look and feel, to take a closer look. ✤
