Huawei Huawei Watch GT 2e vs GT 2 (46mm) vs (42mm) Features Compared

  1. Design

  2. The design of the GT 2e looks almost similar to the GT 2 except that the former has a bigger case and is slightly thicker than the later. AMOLED also powers the display on all three with touchscreen supported and 2 physical buttons respectively for effortless navigation. The case material of all three is stainless steel and thermoplastic while straps come in fluoroelastomer and TPU. However, while the GT 2 has a more sophisticated design with ceramics bezel, the GT 2e has a stainless steel frame that extends to the bezel. On the other hand, the GT 2 (42mm) has a 3D glass that leaves it with a bezeless design. Moreover, the GT 2 and 2e have 1.39-inch display size respectively that allows you to see more at a glance compared to the 42mm with 1.2 inches. Although, the 42mm which is the most compact weighs less than both the GT 2 and 2e. This makes it the most comfortable to wear.

  3. Activity Tracking
  4. Each of these three is well equipped to track your active life by leveraging the Huawei fitness tracking technologies which include sleep monitoring (TruSleep), continuous heart rate tracking (TruSeen), fitness level, personal onscreen coach, steps, calories, location, and routes. Although unlike the GT 2 42mm and 46mm with 15 preloaded workout modes, the new GT 2e has 85 preloaded custom workout modes that give you more options to choose your favorite moves.

  5. Battery Life

The GT 2 46mm and 2e have about the same battery life of two weeks with mixed usage which is longer than the 42mm with about 7 days long battery life with mixed usage. This is impressive and should see you through those extreme workout events, all thanks to the Kirin AI Dual-chip that improves performance significantly.

Verdict

No doubt, each of these stands out with a decent design, long battery life and lots of fitness tracking features. However, the GT 2 has the most sophisticated design that leaves it with a premium appearance. Moreover, with more features such as a speaker, microphone and NFC, it’s a more comprehensive smartwatch.

On the other hand, the GT 2e with a longer battery life, bigger display, and more preloaded sport modes is a better deal than the GT 2 42mm.
