Huawei has introduced two new premium versions of its flagship smartwatch, the Huawei Watch GT 4, in South Africa, offering enhanced design elements and the same advanced technology features that have defined the series.
The Grey version, available in a 46mm size, showcases a contemporary and sophisticated design. It features a stainless-steel case and an integrated stainless-steel strap, a design choice that deviates from the traditional lug and strap format. This integration allows the strap to appear as a seamless extension of the case, providing a snug and secure fit on the wrist.
The watch undergoes over a dozen precision manufacturing processes, including fine grinding and sandblasting, resulting in a durable and corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel body with a ceramic texture. Huawei says this model is designed for those who appreciate fine craftsmanship and seek a watch that makes a bold statement.
The Silver version comes in a smaller, sleeker 41mm form factor. As the name suggests, it features a silver-coloured stainless steel body with gold accents, reminiscent of a two-tone piano key. The intricate link bracelet strap blends silver and gold elements, which the company says adds a timeless charm to the watch.
This model is notable for being the first in Huawei’s smartwatch range to employ intricate handcrafted gold-alloyed techniques, involving over 17 complex processes.
Advanced features maintained
Despite the focus on design, these new models retain all the technological functionalities of the Watch GT 4 series. They boast an impressive battery life of up to 14 days for the 46mm model and up to 7 days for the 41mm. The watches are equipped with the upgraded TruSeen™ 5.5+ heart rate monitoring technology, offering enhanced precision in heart rate and workout tracking.
Additionally, users will find the popular Stay Fit app for managing weight and calories, and the Sleep Breathing Awareness feature, among other functions. The watches maintain their versatility with call, message, notification handling, music playback control, and compatibility with Huawei, Android, and iOS devices.
Availability and promotional offer
The Huawei Watch GT 4 Grey and Silver versions are now available for purchase in South Africa. Priced at R9,999, these watches can be bought from the Huawei online store and any Huawei Experience Store. Customers will also receive a complimentary Huawei Freebuds 2 SE and the Huawei Refresher Service, which includes software updates, watch cleaning, UV disinfection, and strap cleaning.
