Yesterday the official Huawei Fans' Club posted on Weibo the official answers to the eight questions consumers most wanted to ask about the Huawei Watch GT 2e.
1. What is the difference between Huawei Watch GT 2e and GT2?
In terms of positioning, the "e" of the GT2e stands for "energy" and is more focused on the young people of the "Generation Z" who are pursuing a cool lifestyle.
Design-wise, it has an integrated design, refined textures, dynamic dials and more.
Meanwhile the GT 2e also debuts as the first of many trendy sports, and these features are also heavily optimized in terms of algorithms.
On the health front, Huawei has also partnered with 301 Hospital to make many breakthroughs on the GT 2e, including sleep apnea research, heart health research and more.
2. what design breakthroughs did the Huawei Watch GT 2e make in terms of appearance? How did the designers come up with these inspirations?
The design breakthroughs are reflected in the integrated design of the watch body and strap, support for quick release and compatibility with the 22mm standard interface strap.
A bold attempt was made in the casting process and the powder was sintered at 1400°C to create the 316L stainless steel body. The watch face is designed with a ray texture that emits a shine when the wrist is raised.
1.39-inch AMOLED touch color screen, 454*454 retina high resolution, better visual experience.
The design is inspired by Huawei's professional user research team, ID design team and CMF surface treatment team, while at the same time, a lot of research has been carried out in conjunction with user needs, experience, etc. to balance appearance and functionality.
3. Huawei Watch GT 2e supports 100 sports modes, do you mean 100 sports? What does the sports mode do?
The 100 sports include 15 professional sports such as walking, running, hiking, and cycling; 85 custom sports, covering trendy sports such as rollerblading, surfing, and parkour.
Huawei Watch GT 2e provides real-time motion data including GPS and Beidou dual-satellite positioning to accurately record the motion trajectory according to different modes of scientific detection.
4. how accurate is the Huawei Watch GT 2e in determining if someone is asleep? Can't even fake sleep fool it?
Some brands have a rough collection plan, which is not accurate and scientific, and only judges sleep by the size of the movements during sleep.
For data accuracy, Huawei has joined forces with a number of medical schools, based on extensive heart rate data and sleep posture data.
In terms of algorithm and data analysis, Huawei has done algorithm optimization and data de-weighting to more accurately judge human sleep and improve the accuracy of sleep monitoring in GT 2e.
5. what are the main stories about the bumpy journey behind the development of the Huawei Watch GT 2e, and can you share them with consumers?
Share the story of the team's development of the oxygen saturation test function. In order to cover various usage scenarios and to make the oxygen saturation data more accurate, the testing team conducted extensive testing and data collection in a variety of field environments, including normoxia, hypoxia, hypothermia, high altitude, patient data comparison, color differences, etc.
The test team simulated various oxygen concentrations in the environment, covering as much of the oxygen as possible to ensure accuracy in life scenarios.
The test team also went to Taibai Mountain, more than 3,700 meters above sea level, to measure blood oxygen in the field, Taibai Mountain temperature is very different, the foot of the mountain still wears short sleeves, to the top of the mountain has to wear down suits, even some engineers sunburn, peeling skin.
For special people, Huawei cooperates with hospitals to collect and analyze blood oxygen data in hospitals; for different skin colors, Huawei also does data collection and analysis for different skin color tests.
6. Does Huawei Watch GT 2e not support Beidou navigation?
The Huawei Watch GT 2e is GPS+BeiDou double star positioning mode, the watch will be automatically positioned when outdoor sports are turned on, and the track record will be generated after the sports are completed.
7. Is there an exercise heart rate and oxygen saturation alert?
The exercise heart rate reminder feature is supported in the GT 2e. Consumers can first set the heart rate limit in Huawei's "Sports Health" app, and the watch will vibrate to alert if the heart rate exceeds the set limit during exercise.
The watch also supports blood oxygen saturation testing. At present, it supports single real-time measurement of blood oxygen saturation, which needs to observe the trend of its own blood oxygen saturation measurement over a continuous period of time, and blood oxygen saturation in daily life is generally ≥90%.
8. Can Huawei Watch GT 2e be linked with Bluetooth headphones for running and listening to songs?
Yes, the GT 2e supports syncing music stored on the phone to the watch, which can store about 500 MP3 songs, and can also manage the songs synced to the watch by category.
