Huawei Watch 2, which is a product for those who yearn for the freedom to explore while staying connected, without having to be glued to a smartphone, is set to be introduced in South Africa in April.
The device has independent connectivity, allowing users to send messages or make calls independently of a mobile phone.
With Huawei Watch 2 (4G supported version), users can leave their mobile phone at home and go running, cycling or just exploring while staying connected. Thanks to independent mobile connectivity and a built in GPS chip, users can respond to calls and text messages, use independent apps like Uber, Foursquare and Telegram.
Other supporting elements include the built in GPS that tracks your exercise route. Huawei Watch 2 also allows you to add music to your workout through the Google PlayTM Music app. Users can download songs, stream music and access their playlists.
Beyond just exercise, Huawei Watch 2 promotes healthy living all day. The Daily Tracking App accurately tracks users’ daily steps, record time taken for medium to high-intensity exercises, and detect the number of times you stand up after long sedentary periods.
All this information is reported via progress bars to encourage a healthier and more active life. Continuous heart rate monitoring tracks your heart rate in the background and reports your heart rate of the last six hours in a curved line. Huawei Watch 2 also measures your Resting Heart Rate, which is recorded in the activity monitor app.
With a new smart OS and intuitive controls, the Huawei Watch 2 is a personal assistant that brings convenience without infringing on daily life. Running on the new Android Wear 2.0, the on-watch Google Play Store allows both iOS and Android users to benefit from a vast library of compatible applications.
Touch control, intelligent speech recognition and voice instructions enable users to quickly interact with the Huawei Watch 2 and reply to complex messages. The Android Pay app and NFC technology allows for convenient and secure payments. The battery is smarter too thanks to an optimized battery with greater density and longer life. The battery lasts for up to two days with regular use, up to 10 hours in “training mode” and up to three weeks in “watch mode”.
