Huawei Watch GT 2 (46mm) vs GT (46mm): Which is Better?

Although, each of these two look very stylish in their respective classic appearance, but the GT 2 looks more stunning with a finely curved bezel which leaves it with a classier appearance.

Moreover, the GT 2 now features 4GB onboard storage capacity which allows you to take your favorite tracks with you unlike its predecessor. It also has microphone alongside loudspeaker which enables Bluetooth calling. It isn’t a standalone smartwatch, but certainly brings convenience which the GT lacks.

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

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: Although both watches are superb choices, but the Huawei Watch GT 2 being more stylish and having more features in addition to being a more comprehensive activity tracker with advance chip is clearly a better choice.
