The HUAWEI Watch GT also had a 42mm model, but the 42mm model of GT 2 has a simpler and smarter impression.
The round type case is the same as the previous model, but unlike the previous model, which was designed to make the bezel stand out, the GT 2 has an integrated windshield. It's not a reduced version of the 46mm model, it seems to be a completely different device.
▲ 46mm model
The look is very similar to Galaxy Watch Active 2.
▲ Thickness is thinner than Galaxy Watch Active 2, 9.4mm
There are two buttons on the side. Various menus are displayed on the upper side, and functions can be assigned to the lower side.
There is only one color for each model, the sport is black, the classic is silver, and the elegant is rose gold.
I purchased a classic model with a leather strap as standard. For classic and elegant, a black fluoroelastomer strap is also included.
▲ Analog dial always lit. Digital display can also be selected
Of course, you can also receive notifications from your smartphone and check emails. However, only the sender and subject can be confirmed by e-mail.

The best thing about the GT 2 is its good battery life. Instead, compared to other smartwatches, there are some functions that are limited, such as not being able to automatically measure workouts, displaying email text, and not being able to reply.
Some people may feel that the function is not enough, but if you don't mind watching the title, the function as a watch, notifications, and emails, you should be free from daily charging and use it comfortably. Such an author fits perfectly into this use case.
Activity and sleep logs are taken on a separate device, and if you know only the title for notifications, you can decide whether you need to watch it immediately or later. If you are on a business trip or 2-3 days, you do not need to carry a charger. For those who want to give priority to battery life above all while having the minimum functionality as a smartwatch, this is just one recommendation.
