The draining water features allow you to eject excess water, which enters the speaker of the smartwatch while you’re in the water or swimming pool.

Aside from this, the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro ECG version is now available for purchase in China. It sports a 1.39-inch display touch screen display with sapphire glass, 32MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, Sp02 monitoring, 100+ workout modes, and more.

The ECG mode can record your heartbeat and rhythm using the electrical heart sensor built on the smartwatch and checks these pulses to get your heart rate and see if the upper and lower chambers of your heart are in rhythm. If they’re out of rhythm, that could be AFib.
