Huawei Watch 2 vs Watch GT 2

Besides the Huawei Watch GT 2* there is also the Huawei Watch 2*. The two devices are not identical. The Huawei Watch 2 offers you among other things LTE. This means that the watch can be used independently of the smartphone.

Huawei Watch GT 42mm vs 46mm

Both generations, Huawei Watch GT and Huawei Watch GT 2, are available in two versions. This is the 46mm series and the 42mm series.

The differences here refer to optics, size, weight and also the battery life. The functions are identical in both versions.

Size and weight

The larger versions are logically heavier for both generations. The Huawei Watch GT 2 is significantly more compact in both cases. Not only the actual size is smaller. Also the optics are made to make the Huawei Watch GT 2 look smaller. The specifications here refer to the weight of the watch without bracelet:

Huawei Watch GT 42mm* 36,2 g 42,8 x 42,8 x 42,8 mm

Huawei Watch GT 46mm* 46,0 g 46,5 x 46,5 x 46,5 mm
Huawei Watch GT 2 46mm* 41,0 g 45,9 x 4,9 x 10,7 mm

Display

The display does not differ between the generations. Only between the 42mm and 46mm version there are differences:

Differences between Huawei Watch GT and Huawei Watch GT 2

The difference between the generations relates much more to the technical data. First and foremost on the sensors installed.

Bluetooth

For the Huawei Watch GT 2 there is an upgrade in the Bluetooth version. The new generation has Bluetooth 5.1 installed. The Huawei Watch GT has only Bluetooth version 4.2.

But there is another difference. Because the Huawei Watch GT 2 supports Bluetooth phone calls.

Internal memory and music

Compared to the Huawei Watch GT, the Huawei Watch GT 2 has a much larger internal memory of 4 GB. The watch also allows you to play music directly through the wrist band. The predecessor has only 128 MB built-in.

In addition to the memory, the Huawei Watch GT 2 also has 32 GB of RAM, twice as much as the Huawei Watch GT. There the main memory is thus 16 GB. Overall, the performance of the Huawei Watch GT 2 is also better.

More functions - sports and fitness

All in all Huawei has given the WatchGT2 a few more functions. You have more possibilities to record your sports and activities. This includes a larger selection of sports as well as TruSleep 2.0 (sleep measurement) and TruRelax (stress measurement).

Of course, the Huawei Watch GT 2 also offers you notifications of messages and calls.

Mobile payment

It's more a hint than a difference. Despite NFC, Huawei Watch GT 2 does not offer you the possibility of mobile payment. This is unfortunately the case with many devices from Asia. One reason for this is that American companies like Google do not work with China. This of course leads to problems with Google Pay or Apple Pay. In Asia it may well be possible to pay with the Huawei Watch GT 2. This was also the case with the Mi Band 4, for example.

Similarities of Huawei Watch GT and Huawei Watch GT 2

Briefly a few important similarities, which you get with both models:
 
  • Built-in GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO
  • Waterproof to 50 meters (5 ATM)
  • Battery life:
    • 42 mm up to 7 days
    • 46 mm up to 14 days

Which Huawei Watch GT is better for you?

The Huawei Watch GT 2* is definitely the better choice. You get much better hardware and more features. Even if the watch is more expensive, I recommend the purchase of the Huawei Watch GT 2*.

You get 4 GB internal memory, the possibility to make phone calls via Bluetooth, better performance due to the hardware and more functions on the watch itself.

The Huawei Watch GT* is not a bad choice, but in comparison the predecessor comes off worse. The advantage of the older generation is of course the price.

Whether you choose the Huawei Watch GT 2 in 42mm* or in 46mm* depends on your preferences. The only difference between the two variants is the size. The functions and hardware of both clocks are identical.
