It almost feels like they took a page out of the Meta wearable’s design.
Meet Huawei’s most ambitious smartwatch yet. Designed with a circular face, the watch features a detachable dial that pops right out of the strap, allowing you to swap outer body designs in under minutes. Sort of taking a page from Apple’s book, the smartwatch comes with a wide host of straps that give the smartwatch a classy, premium, minimalist, or sporty demeanor. Unlike the Apple Watch, however, these interchangeable straps come with the bezel built-in, giving the watch an entire makeover.
The watch comes with a large 1.32-inch AMOLED display that supports both touch and gesture inputs. The smartwatch is rated to be water-resistant up to 5 ATM, and has been tested to meet 16 military standards, ensuring that it can withstand changes in pressure, temperature, and solar radiation. The Huawei Watch GT Cyber allows you to log your workout with a variety of 100+ sports modes, and GPS tracking lets you keep tabs on your route. Additionally, it offers heart rate and SpO2 sensors for monitoring health, sleep quality, and stress levels. As is with most smartwatches, you can also enjoy music playback, Bluetooth calling, and voice assistant functions.
The swap-out bezel/strap design, however, is the Huawei Watch GT Cyber’s most compelling design detail. Huawei offers three kinds of shells; the Urban Pioneer and Fashion shells, crafted from a combination of nanocrystalline ceramic and stainless steel, as well as the Sports shell, which is made from reinforced composite fiber.
The Huawei Watch GT Cyber is touted as being compatible with both Android and iOS devices. Huawei claims that the watch’s battery can last up to seven days when used sparingly and four days with more frequent use. Furthermore, it also has a built-in NFC chip for contactless payments, and supports Qi-enabled wireless charging.
Although the Huawei Watch GT Cyber was announced as early as October, it begins its global rollout starting with Mexico. The current price is MEX$ 3,699 (US$196), but it will go up to MEX$ 3,999 (~US$212) after February 13. To secure the discounted rate, customers must make a deposit of MEX$100 (~US$5). This new wearable boasts an impressive seven days of battery life and comes with a watch case/strap that can be purchased separately in four colors: black, grey, yellow, and gold.
