Huawei recently announced a September 14 event in Barcelona, teasing what appeared to be two watches. That seems to be all but confirmed now that images of the upcoming Watch GT4 series have popped up online.
Not much technical data is currently available regarding the Watch GT4, but the source does note that there will be two size models – 41mm and 46mm with vastly different designs. The smaller one looks cleaner and more elegant, definitely targeting a more feminine aesthetic.
The larger 46mm, on the other hand, features a large timing outer bezel and what seems like a very distinct and rather striking body design with protruding geometrical edges on both sides.
Apparently, there will be a total of nine variants of the Watch GT4, depending on the combination of materials for the body and strap. The most expensive models should feature a stainless steel body and matching strap. You can also expect to see other editions with simpler metal cases and textile or plastic straps.
Reported pricing for the GT4 series ranges from €249 to €399. As expected, the GT4 line is less expensive and less feature-rich than the premium Huawei Watch 4 and 4 Pro announced back in May. Those models run on Harmony OS 3.0, whereas the Watch GT4 series is expected to pack a lot fewer “smarts” and be more akin to a smart band than a full-featured smartwatch. That being said, the source does mention that the Watch GT4 will offer an extended range of fitness tracking functions and around two weeks of battery life thanks to efficient OLED panels and a Cortex-M processor.
