Honor unveils a rugged Apple Watch rival with 25-day battery life

Honor unveils a rugged Apple Watch rival with 25-day battery life”

Earlier this week, Huawei introduced the Watch Fit smartwatch with a tall display, but the company is gearing up to announce one more smartwatch, dubbed Huawei Watch GT2 Pro.

While AMD has been lagging behind Intel in the past, the company's newer Ryzen processors have been gaining popularity over the past couple of years, namely due to its price to performance ratio, so it doesn't come as a surprise that Honor would choose to use their processors over that of Intel. The MagicBook Pro features a 16.1-inch Full HD+ display with ultra-thin bezels. The GS Pro can last up to 25 days on a single charge, and it boasts navigation capabilities including enhanced Global Positioning System and weather alerts, making it ideal for when you're out in the wilderness on that long-distance, multiday trek you've been meaning to take. The smartwatch will be available in Charcoal Black, Marl White and Camo Blue. It also offers 24/7 heart-rate, blood oxygen, sleep, and stress monitoring features. These sleek yet powerful laptops offer several premium features such as a 16.1-inch Full HD+ display, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, 512 GB NVMe SSD, etc.

While the ES model is a more traditional wearable, the Watch GS Pro comes to meet a demanding and "radical" audience. It'll also offer menstrual cycle tracking, albeit only for people who use an Android phone with their new timepiece.

As for other specifications, the MagicBook Pro comes with a fingerprint scanner and a pop-up web camera. It runs on the Ryzen 5 4500U processor, which suggests around 33.7% performance improvement in multi-core speed over its predecessor. These variants launched at IFA Berlin in September feature 512GB NVMe SSD storage.

Huawei has launched the Honor MagicBook 2020 refreshed editions but with only AMD Ryzen 5 APUs from the AMD Renoir Ryzen 4000 Series processors. It incorporates the same I/O offerings as the MagicBook 15, which includes 1x USB Type-C port, 2x USB Type-A ports, and a 3.5mm audio jack.

The Honor Watch ES comes in black, pink and white colours and is priced at €100 (Rs 8,700 approx.).

As for availability, both smartwatches will be available starting September 7 in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain. These will be available in Europe within the next month at 750 euros for the MagicBook 14 and 700 euros for the MagicBook 15.
