What’s the Difference?

The main difference between the Huawei Watch GT 2 (46mm) and GT (46mm) is that the former is now sleeker and classier, comes with 4GB onboard storage and Bluetooth calling, all of which the later lacks, and is now more equipped to track your active life.

Huawei Watch GT (46mm) vs GT 2 (46mm) Features Compared

  1. Huawei Watch GT (46mm) vs GT 2 (46mm): Design

  2. Just like its predecessor, the GT, the GT 2 comes in a very remarkable classic design. But this time, it has a more sophisticated design than the GT. Its more compact, weighs slightly less and slimmer than the GT which leaves it with a classier and sleeker appearance that defines a true premium smartwatch.

    The near-flat ceramic bezel of the GT 2 is a beauty to behold, it’s top-notch design and finish that certainly makes it a finer and more prestigious smartwatch than its predecessor.

  3. Huawei Watch GT (46mm) vs GT 2 (46mm): Storage

  4. The Watch GT lacks onboard storage capacity which is now present on the GT 2. It comes with 4GB onboard storage capacity that lets take your favorite tracks with you. A great way to stay motivated while working out.

    In addition, the GT 2 features a microphone and loudspeaker which the GT lacks. Thus supports the new Bluetooth calling function built into the GT 2 (46mm) which brings it close to being a standalone smartwatch that allow you make and receive calls directly from this device (watch must be connected to phone Bluetooth).

  5. Huawei Watch GT (46mm) vs GT 2 (46mm): Fitness Tracking

  6. Just like the GT, the new GT 2 is also fitness-focused, both are well equipped to track your active life. These two feature training effect, training load, recovery time – all training analysis tools to help you manage your fitness goals effortlessly, with inbuilt GPS that enables outdoor activity tracking. Although, the GT 2 features more activity tracking features which include improved heart rate tracking and swimming heart rate tracking.

    The Huawei TruSeen technology introduced to the GT has been upgraded to enable more efficient and accurate tracking of your heart rate. As well as the presence of Huawei TruSleep technology that tracks your complete sleep cycle in deep, light and rem stages and TruRelax pressure monitoring.

    Also new on the GT 2 is swimming heart rate tracking that tracks your heart rate while you swim which can help you manage your training intensity effortlessly. A great deal for Pro swimmers.

  7. Huawei Watch GT (46mm) vs GT 2 (46mm): Battery Life

Both the GT and the GT 2 have got very impressive long battery life. Each of these two has been tested to last up to 2 weeks which is great especially for individuals engaging in extreme workout activities.

However, the new Huawei self-developed wearable Kirin A1 dual-chip design and intelligent power saving technology improves performance on the GT 2 significantly and will see it last a bit longer than its predecessor.

Huawei Watch GT (46mm) vs GT 2 (46mm): Which is Better?

No doubt, both the GT and GT 2 are fantastic smartwatches that standout with stunning design, long battery life while also being comprehensive fitness trackers.

But the GT 2 with a more sophisticated design, more fitness tracking features, onboard music storage, Bluetooth calling and a slight longer battery life is clearly a better choice than the GT. It’ll cost you a little more at about $275 compared to the $200 GT, but it certainly gives more value for money.

Should you upgrade? Yes, it’s worth it. However, if you’re low on budget, then the GT is still a great choice.

Our Pick

The Huawei Watch GT 2 (46mm) with sophisticated design befitting of a true premium smartwatch is more compact and sleeker with onboard music storage, Bluetooth calling while also being a more comprehensive activity tracker. It’s our preferred choice.
