Two new Honor smartwatches : Honor Watch ES and Honor Watch GS Pro
In addition to laptops and tablets , Honor has also unveiled two new smartwatches as part of its IFA 2020 showcase, the light and stylish Honor Watch ES and the more robust Honor Watch GS Pro.
With the effects of the list of US entities continually weighing on Huawei (and by association with Honor) it makes sense that this year’s IFA company announcements were light on phones, with Honor opting instead to offer new ones. clothing items in the form of the ES Watch and GS Pro, in order to attract a wider audience.
Huawei fans might recognize the Honor Watch ES as it bears more than a passing resemblance to the Huawei Watch Fit, which recently launched in China and the United Arab Emirates. The Honor Watch GS Pro, for its part, seems to resemble the Polar Grit X; with its MIL-STD-810G certification, dual satellite positioning systems and long battery life.

The most obvious feature of the ES Watch is its 1.67-inch rectangular AMOLED display. It’s practically a lifting feature of the Huawei Watch Fit, with support for six always-on watch faces, water resistance up to 5ATM (making it swim-proof), support for 95 training modes (including automatic training detection for six selected activities) and the promise of a 10-day battery life.
This portrait display also lends itself to the watch’s animated training courses: 12 workouts made up of 44 animated movements that the watch shows you while you exercise.
This feature also works offline, and the exercises are designed to be easily digestible so that you can adapt them to your daily routine without interruption. Courses include three-minute exercises to relieve shoulder pain, a fat-burning routine, and even an abs workout.
As for the rest of the hardware , the Watch ES features SpO2 blood oxygen saturation level tracking, a menstrual cycle tracker (when paired with Android devices), sleep, stress, and rate monitoring. cardiac, all wrapped in a 21 gram casing that comes in three colors.
The Watch ES will launch in Europe from September 7 and will cost around 99 euros, although we are still waiting for the UK price.
Honor Watch GS Pro
The Honor Watch GS Pro has a reinforced stainless steel and polycarbonate case, around a 1.39-inch circular AMOLED display. The aforementioned MIL-STD-810G protection means that it has been tested to withstand extreme temperatures, shocks, and water resistance and what’s more, it is capable of monitoring heart rate while swimming (in up to 50 meters of water).
Built for the outdoors, Honor sees GS Pro users on hiking or cross-country ski trails (both of which it is capable of tracking) and if you go off-trail, it comes with a dual satellite positioning system. which you can use as part of your Route Back feature to leave a breadcrumb trail of GPS markers that you can follow again if you find yourself lost. It will even alert you when the GPS strength is weak, just to be safe.
Additionally, features such as sunrise and sunset tracking, tidal monitoring, and bad weather alerts are designed to help those who like to venture out into the wild be as prepared as possible.
The icing on the cake is probably the GS Pro’s promised 25-day battery life, which can be extended to 100 days in power saving mode.
Like the ES watch, the GS Pro arrives from September 7, but costs a bit more, 249 euros.
In addition to the two new apparel, Honor also announced the global launch of its Pad 6 and Pad X6 tablets, along with the MagicBook Pro and updated versions of the MagicBook 14 and 15 with Ryzen 4000 processors.
