Software and Battery life
The GT2 is powered by Kirin A1 chipset and has 2 GB of RAM and 4GB of storage options. It uses Bluetooth 5.1 for faster connectivity and has built-in GPS along with Glonass and Galileo for more precise positioning. The watch does not offer NFC support and it does not support Wi-Fi or VoWi-Fi. GT2 smartwatch works on Lite OS from Huawei which is limited to customization and third-party applications. It can share data with Google fit and works well for sensing every reading. The home screen is divided into 4 tabs. The first tab shows the reading, second shows exercise modes, third contains connectivity features and fourth is for the settings.
The 455 mAh battery life is well-tuned to provide a battery back up to 2 weeks on 46 mm variant and 1 week on 42 mm variants. Anyways it all depends on the apps which you are using and for how long. If you use the battery economically then it could last for more days rather than just simply monitoring each and every step or heartbeats. If used continuously both variant’s battery may get over in just 2 days.
