Huawei Watch GT 2 (42mm) vs GT (42mm): Which is Better?

While the GT 42mm has a classic watch appearance, the GT 2 42mm looks somewhat sporty and geeky, but classier and sleeker which leaves it with a more fascinating design.

In addition, the GT 2 also has the Huawei TruSeen technology introduced to the GT, but has been improved to track your heart rate more accurately, alongside TruSleep, TruRelax that monitors your pressure and can help you manage stress and heart rate tracking while swimming which makes it a more comprehensive activity tracker than its predecessor.

Moreover, the GT 2 comes with 4GB onboard storage capacity which allows you to take your favorite tracks with you on the go. A great way to stay motivated.

The biggest addition comes in the form of the Kirin A1 chip which brings improved performance and elongates the battery life of the GT 2 that will see it last a little longer than the GT.

VERDICT: The GT 2 wins, it has a more prestigious design, while also being a more comprehensive activity tracker with onboard music storage.
