GT Pro 2

As the world continues to change, so, too, do our standards and expectations for technology. 2020 was an awakening when it came to the reliance on (and subsequent performance of) our various devices. With their sleek designs and intuitive specs, the latest audio and wearable technology from HUAWEI are must-haves to get your new year off on the right foot so you can perform your best, whether for work or your health.



The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro pushes the boundaries on what’s possible from a wearable device. Its classic round face is contrasted by the very modern technology beneath its surface. 

So long are the days of a single design, the GT 2 Pro can not only match your personality but your mood. With countless face options, from beautiful analog fronts to vibrant digital designs, let your watch be a reflection of yourself.

As an everyday accessory, you can feel confident in its durable and sleek wear-resistant sapphire dial and titanium frame. Combined with its ceramic back, the GT 2 Pro blends the best of style and functionality for a lightweight feel.

While smartwatches are not new, the concept is elevated by the capabilities of the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro, which separates it from the rest of its category counterparts. Active users are kept top of mind with the upgraded HUAWEI TruSeen 4.0+, allowing you to track your all-day health through more accurate readings for your heart rate, blood oxygen saturation levels, sleep monitoring, and stress levels. For those who prefer to be active outside, the GT2 Pro also proves to be an effective tool with over 100 Sport Modes (including new workout modes for skiing and golf), which provide real-time performance tracking, data analysis, and guidance for those looking to up their game and crush their 2021 goals.

In addition to its sporty specs, features like the built-in barometer and a GPS tracking system mean that no matter your adventure, with the GT 2 Pro, you’re prepared.

Best of all? Even with all of the specs included, the battery life remains uncompromised. When charged, with typical use, the GT 2 Pro will last for two weeks. It also has a five-minute fast charge that allows up to 10 hours of use.

This year, don’t watch your life go by. Get the best out of every moment with the GT 2 Pro.



For those of you looking for the best training partner that you can wear on your wrist, look no further than the HUAWEI WATCH FIT. Unlike the GT Pro 2, the WATCH FIT takes a rectangular approach that lies slimmer on the wrist.

The 1.64″ rectangle AMOLED display allows for an ultra-clear and wide viewing experience with auto-brightness so you never miss an update. With the ability to set a pre-designed always-on screen or the use of your own favourite picture, your WATCH FIT becomes an extension of yourself.

While the screen itself is impressive, the technology underneath is just as special. With 96 workout modes and an animated personal trainer that displays workouts on the screen, the WATCH FIT is a must-have for any fitness enthusiast. Its ease of use and convenient workout plans, makes the WATCH FIT perfect for those who had “get fit” on their new year’s resolutions.

Once you’re done your workout, you can view your metrics, progress, and scientific guidance with the HUAWEI Health App. Smart detection can sense when a workout begins, so you’ll never miss your performance data.

For the times when you’re not actively working out, the 24-hour monitoring still allows you to track your personal health. Like the GT Pro 2, its accurate heart rate, blood oxygen saturation levels, sleep, and stress monitoring throughout the day, means you can ensure that your overall wellbeing stays a priority this year.

Lightweight, functional, and stylish, when combined with its 10-day battery life, the WATCH FIT is a perfect addition to your everyday wear to take control of your everyday life. If you forget to charge your WATCH FIT, have no fear, the five-minute charge allows for all-day use. 

Put your health first this year, with the HUAWEI WATCH FIT.

Drown out the noise with the HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro.

Designed for an immersive experience, the FreeBuds Pro features inward-facing and outward-facing microphones that detect surrounding noise levels to create the clearest sound possible and achieve up to a 40dB noise cancellation.

With intelligent noise-recognizing technology, the FreeBuds Pro adapts to your surroundings to ensure their output is best suited for your circumstances. In addition to modes like Cozy and Ultra, Voice mode allows for distinct human voices to stand out so that you never miss your boarding call or a friend calling out.

Despite their small size, the FreeBuds Pro delivers larger-than-life performance. In addition to its sonic capabilities, motions for answering and ending a call, changing the volume, and flipping through songs means that control remains at the tip of your fingers.

While commute times may be more or less nonexistent, taking calls and listening to your favourite playlists and podcasts remain more prominent than ever. No matter what your use is, the 30 hours of battery life when coupled with the FreeBuds Pro charging case means that you can stay listening. On the off chance you’re left with no battery, the reverse-charge allows you to steal some battery from your phone so you’re never left without sound. Needless to say, you can leave dead earphones in 2020.

Our favourite feature? The FreeBuds Pro can simultaneously connect to two devices at once, so you can transition from your phone to your laptop without struggle. Never say, “Sorry, I just have to connect my headphones!” again.

Available with three sizes of silicone covers to ensure the best fit and in two sleek colours (Ceramic White, Silver Frost), the FreeBud Pros combine the best of style and sound.
