For those unaware, the Huawei Watch GT comes with a 1.39-inch AMOLED touchscreen display and a tri-GPS system that includes GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo / Beidou tracking. Moreover, the device features Truseen 3.0 heart rate monitoring, which has a self-learning algorithm to provide more insightful data, and identifies different type of exercises like running, hiking, walking, and cycling.
