Users Jackob wrote “Have it since Christmas 2020, it’s working flawlessly, no degradation in display, battery after every-day use for 2 years. I miss some functionality, and the watch face market is not great, but it’s a nice watch after all. Not worth the 150 I bought it for though…”
Stefan wrote “I have a GT2 Pro, only thing that annoys me is that all my calls get put to the watch if I have a bluetooth headset connected even if I turn off calls for the watch. Have to manually put the call to my headset every time. Had this problem both on my Oneplus 9 and Samsung s22+”
Brancatus wrote “Very disappointed that the heart rate monitor and workout data are not accessible by third party apps. For this reason alone will not be buying another Huawei. Otherwise all is fine after 2+ years apart from the gold finish that is peeling off.”
Carlos: “My gt2 does not respond when touching the screen.”
Brian: “Watch face came away from the bezel as I was washing my hands??”
Gabriel Pelin: “Just replaced the battery and the motherboard for second time,hope that from now on will work properly.”
James Muia: “My Huawei GT 2 watch has never let me down.”
HendricoVW: “Been using the @Huawei GT 2 Classic for more than two years now and it still running perfect. This is really a great watch but could do with an update, maybe add some features like assistant, message replies, and an option to add more tiles perhaps. #Huawei #WatchGT2 #Smartwatch”
Einwod: “Everything worked fine for 18 months, then when I’m at sea level, it tells me in 2480m high. Apart from that, this is a fantastic watch. I now have Watch 3 active and the battery life on it sucks.”
Adam Bullied: “Bought for my wife for xmas 2020 for her to track her sleep. It wasn’t very good at that & she didn’t use it. I started wearing it and it’s been on my wrist since. I’ve taken it into the backcountry, tracked my workouts, and it’s my speakerphone of daily use. It’s a great watch.”
Zai Mykaels: “Lasted four months before constantly getting hot and charging to a max of 22%. Battery is a nightmare to get replaced.”
Frappedieros: “Watch is fine, but how about giving us a lap timer function and custom workouts ?”
Naseer Ahmed: “I have a gt 2e and working perfectly.”
Theo77: “I wished they uploaded the HR broadcasting option for gym equipment. There were rumors but it never happened.”
Rich Glover: “Being able to answer calls on my wrist is so much easier than pulling my phone out of my pocket. I have a voice recording of my late father’s voice downloaded to my GT2, which is a comfort to carry with me.”
ioannisgnk: “It’s not a good watch, always having issues with sensor, most of times I need to shake hard for it to open, and it’s not smart at all, it does what a fitband do with the only extra calling and playing music. Okay, it wasn’t that expensive like other watches but still..”
Nkosinathi Khumalo: “I loved this watch. So sad to see it do this… Until the battery dies.”

SpyV: “I have the gt2 pro from July 21 and still works flawlessly. Fantastic battery life, built quality and durability, no scratches.”
visage: “Still nice for everyday use. I’m still impressed by the battery duration comparing to an apple watch which costs tonnes of money. The disappointment comes from the fact that the watch screen somehow keeps some previous displayed image and on the watch face there’s a mixture.”
Danny: “My GT2 Pro is just excellent. Only thing is that last update was 6 months ago and it doesn’t seem to be scheduled for more. I hope Huawei won’t abandon this model and updates will keep coming.”
darko kmet: “Gave my away and got watch 3 pro. It was missing alot features so I wasnt really pleased with it… Everything was tageted only for gt2 pro…”

Mark Watson: “The vibration motor stopped working a year after purchase. Fixed under warranty. I’m a bit disappointed that 3rd app support never came to this watch. I find replying to messages very useful on my new pixel watch which you could never do with GT2. Still a nice design and screen”
alex wong: “Been use GT2 since 2020, free gift came along with Huawei Matebook 14 (during launch). Now battery still pretty good, no issue so far. One of best bang for bucks smartwatch in market, even now latest iteration often offer very good price value. Problem is won’t work well in GMS.”

The band broke once due to heavy use, but it got replaced very quickly”

Huawei FreeBuds 5 using BES2700 chipset
Huawei FreeBuds 5 comes with a seamless surface design and the company is using the BES2700 series chipset to enable various features on this smart wearable device, says its supplier Hengxuan Technology.
The BES2700 chip for Huawei FreeBuds 5 uses a high-performance core, which provides dynamic original sound. It reduces the power consumption of the earphones, the longest battery life is 30 hours, and can comfortably reduce noise, and the quietness is just right.
BES2700 series chip was also used in Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2. It is an ultra-low-power Bluetooth wearable platform. The chip mainly comes in use for TWS, hybrid ANC, and AI voice applications. These processors have the capability of intelligently processing the localized data with the minimum amount of power requirement.
In 2022, the volume of BES2700 series smartwatch chips increased rapidly. During the reporting period, Hengxuan Technology achieved a watch chip revenue of 290 million yuan, accounting for 19% of revenue. Bluetooth audio chip revenue of 1.09 billion yuan accounts for 74%.
Huawei FreeBuds 5:
Huawei FreeBuds 5 earphones adopt an innovative full-surface streamlined design, which looks like a water drop, full of trendy attributes. The earphones can show a different curve trend at every viewing angle, which is very artistic and vital.
The ear stem has a perfect curve, the thickness gradient is just right, and it is easy to hold. The ear stem is in the shape of a drop of water, with super high resolution.
Huawei FreeBuds 5 not only launched two classic colors of ceramic white and frost silver but also created a unique color – coral orange. The design of the charging box is sleek and compact, and the earphones are displayed in a jewelry-like display box. It makes the earphones easy to pick up and the opening of the box is full of fun.
In addition to appearance and performance, wearing comfort has gradually become a part of the user experience. Huawei FreeBuds 5 not only continues the tradition of semi-in-ear headphones design but also breaks through the wearing comfort.
In the process of building Huawei FreeBuds 5, Huawei engineers combined real human ear samples from 10,000+ people around the world. It carried out Micron-level size optimization and after EMI model changes, the effect of zero pressure, no feeling, and long-term wearing without fatigue was finally achieved.
Huawei Watch 3 gets March 2023 update with new security patch
Huawei Watch 3 series is the first to grab HarmonyOS 3 software and the company is pushing March 2023 update for this smartwatch with a new security patch.
According to the changelog, Huawei Watch 3 series is getting March 2023 update tagged with build version 188.8.131.52. While users will have to download 258 megabytes of package size to get this new improvement onboard.
However, there’s something special about this release and that is related to the security patch. The new firmware has February 2023 security patch. With HarmonyOS 2, Huawei never fetched the Huawei Watch 3 series with a new security patch. Not specifically in the changelog.
Interestingly, this is the first time, we’re witnessing such improvement in the OTA upgrade changelog. But it is the only improvement that the smartwatch is getting for the time being.
HarmonyOS February 2023 security patches for smartwatch fix several issues and vulnerabilities in framework, system and third-party applications, stability, and network areas. Therefore, you should get this software as soon as it appears.
We also recommend Huawei Watch 3 series users check for a new upgrade to HarmonyOS 3. You can get it via Huawei Health and tap on your smartwatch, followed by the “Software updates” section.
There are various reasons to install HarmonyOS 3 on your Huawei Watch 3 including the new health and data integration with third-party devices. The cross-device connection is also improved, allowing you to connect the smartwatch for easy interaction.
Natively, you can also enjoy the new kaleidoscopic watch face, which brings in a whole new watch personalization option. Finally, HarmonyOS 3 for smartwatches also boosts the performance of the entire smartwatch. This helps you to get the best out of the LTE-enabled Watch 3 series.
So, it’s the right time to hop on the HarmonyOS 3 train and get all of these features on your wrist.

Huawei Watch D2 blood pressure smartwatch is coming this year
Huawei Watch D2 blood pressure measurement smartwatch could launch later this year, says a tipster. As we look forward to the next version of the Watch D health-oriented smart wearable.
According to the information coming from a Weibo tipster, Huawei is preparing to launch a new blood pressure measurement smartwatch and it will come in the second half of this year.
The tipster didn’t reveal any further details about this upcoming device. But there’s only one Huawei smartwatch that has identical traits and it is the Huawei Watch D.
For now, Huawei has not announced the details of the Huawei Watch D2. However, we can look into the current version to get a better understanding of what we’re actually talking about.
Huawei Watch D:
Huawei Watch D is made with new intricate blood pressure components in that wrist-size compact device. It has 2.5D curved glass along with a durable aluminum alloy frame. Also, there are two buttons for the home screen and the health features.
The main functionality of this device is derived from the high-precision pressure sensor, meticulous pressure feedback controls, and less air resistance.
This smartwatch brings a macromolecular tensile strap, ergonomically-arced airbag, and butterfly clasp. This makes the watch stable during inflation, to enhance the precision of impromptu blood pressure readings.
The Watch D takes care of all of the reading using the Huawei TruBP blood pressure algorithm, which is based on a cascade model. It also has different blood pressure patterns, which include smart measurement assistance, abnormal posture detection, and other important functionalities.
It also has customizable smart blood pressure reminders. These allow you to set custom measurement plans, then the watch will remind you to conduct a measurement on the scheduled timeline.
There are other important check-ins for example an insight into all of the blood pressure-related issues, exercise, and weight. These insights help you to improve your diet and health care.
Another powerful capability of this smartwatch comes with ECG Analysis. The Huawei Watch D not only measures BP but also has a high-performance ECG sensor to provide single-lead ECG measurement.
Huawei Watch D is filled with a lot of other healthy features and we’re excited about Huawei Watch D2 for what it will bring to the consumers.
