Alongside today’s Huawei P50 series announcement, Huawei has introduced two new wearables with the Band 6 Pro and Watch GT 2 Pro ECG (via GSMArena). These are both successors to previously-existing wearables in the Watch GT 2 Pro and Band 6.
From a design perspective, the Watch GT 2 Pro ECG is practically the same as the Watch GT 2 Pro with its 1.39-inch AMOLED display and titanium frame. With the new watch, you’ll have access to heart-rate and blood oxygen (SpO2) monitoring, along with keeping track of your sleep and your stress levels. As the name suggests, this new smartwatches biggest upgrade is with the new electrocardiogram sensor that is built-in and can provide readings.
Huawei is also including more than 100 different workout modes that can be tracked with this new smartwatch. Surprisingly, Huawei opted to use Lite OS instead of HarmonyOS 2 which made its debut with the Huawei Watch 3. Pricing for the GT 2 Pro ECG starts at CNY 3,088 and will launch in China on August 12.
As for the Huawei Band 6 Pro, it includes many of the same features offered by the new GT 2 Pro ECG. This includes heart rate and blood oxygen monitoring, and other health tracking features. The Band 6 Pro also gains a body temperature sensor, in lieu of the electrocardiogram sensor.
The AMOLED display measures in at 1.47-inches, and battery life is rated for up to two weeks with “moderate usage”. You’ll also be able to track quite a few different workouts, as Huawei states there are 96 different modes available with the Band 6 Pro.
Huawei confirmed that the Band 6 Pro will go on sale starting on August 20, and is priced at CNY 449 ($70).
