Huawei Watch GT 2 Porsche Design : the brand’s most exclusive watch
It may be very recently that Huawei launched the Watch GT 2 Pro, but at its event on October 22, in addition to new Mate 40 smartphones , the company presented the new Huawei Watch GT 2 Porsche Design in society.
As the name suggests, this new addition to the family’s GT 2 smartwatch family extends the four-year partnership between Porsche Design and Huawei for the Mate series of smartphones.
During the event, Porsche Design CEO Jan Becker discussed the benefits of the new hyper- premium Mate 40 , but left it to Huawei’s Richard Yu to introduce the watch. It is basically a redesign of the Watch GT 2 Pro with touches of Porsche Design.
Like the GT 2 Pro, it has a sapphire glass front, a titanium case, and a ceramic back, making it incredibly premium . The Porsche Design version also has an exclusive titanium strap.
This material is undoubtedly premium , but it also helps the watch weigh less. Both the strap itself and each individual piece that forms it use a mechanism that makes it easy to unhook.
Porsche Design is also responsible for a number of exclusive dials that appear more subtle than the Mate 40 RS.
But beyond the aesthetics, everything else is the same as the Watch GT 2 Pro: a battery life of up to two weeks, SpO2 measurement, wireless charging, sleep tracking and support for additional sports modes such as the Golf.
The other big difference from the rest of the Watch GT 2 range is the price. The Porsche Design model is more premium , so it is not surprising that it is more expensive: € 695 instead of € 299.
The Huawei Watch GT 2 Porsche Design can be purchased directly from Huawei’s online store as of November 3, although it can be pre-purchased between October 22 and November 2 (you will get free some FreeBuds 3).
