When it comes to a casual wear, the Watch GT does not fall flat. It’s elegant design is perfect for all occasion.

The stainless steel is water resistant up to five atmospheres, while being accented with plastic and ceramic on the back part. On the other hand, the band  sports silicone on the skin-facing side to protect the leather from sweat.

This move is deemed to be very smart and strategic. And that is what the Huawei Watch GT design stand out from other smart watches.

Huawei definitely settle for anything less. The Watch GT boasts a 1.39-inch AMOLED display with rich colors and high pixel density.

And the display also is what gives the Huawei Watch GT the smartphone impression. The watch also has a simple user-interface that would not be a problem for any type of users.

You can easily scroll through several watch faces and simply swipe in for settings and apps. You will also receive notifications from your connected smartphones.

Huawei Lite OS

It may look like the typical smartwatch, but Huawei did not opt for Google’s Android Wear. Instead, Huawei created its own – Lite OS.

The thing about the Lite OS is that you can’t download apps on your Watch GT other than the built-in app by Huawei. You can only hope that Huawei will be adding more apps in the coming update.
