Huawei has expanded its Canadian product offerings with two new wearables, two new wireless earbud options, and a Wi-Fi 6 router. The new products are geared towards bringing a more cohesive connected experience to customers across Huawei devices.
“This launch marks another milestone for HUAWEI Canada as we now offer all six of our key product categories to Canadian consumers: Smartphones, Tablets, Wearables, Audio, PC, and now IoT. Globally, HUAWEI is the second-largest player in Smartphones and Smart Watches, third in Tablets, and first in IoT – and we are thrilled to offer Canadians our latest tech across all these groups.”Radek Krasny, Director of Marketing, Huawei Canada Consumer Business Group
Starting on the smartwatch front, the two new Huawei Wearables are the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro and the Huawei Watch Fit. With premium sapphire glass, titanium, and ceramic construction, the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro offers two-week battery life, wireless charging, and a bevy of smartwatch features.
Health tracking features are at their most advanced yet with the upgraded HUAWEI TruSeen™ 4.0+ providing more accurate heart rate readings, in addition to monitoring SpO2, sleep, and stress levels throughout the day. Huawei has introduced new workout modes including Skiing and Golf. These join the existing range of over 100 Sport Modes to provide users with real-time performance tracking, scientific workout guidance, and professional data analysis for professional sports.Huawei press release

With a 1.64-inch display, the Watch Fit is 10.7mm thin, weighs only 34 grams, and lasts up to 10 days on a single charge. It is powered by the Huawei TruSeen 4.0 heart rate technology to provide more accurate 24-hour heart monitoring, blood oxygen levels, sleep, and stress levels.
