Technology has introduced many benefits to the modern world, but it has also led to a sedentary lifestyle. The pace and demands of modern times are always increasing, causing many people to neglect their wellbeing and health. Many people just don’t have the time to make sure they are as healthy as they could be. This is one of the drivers of high rates of cardiovascular disease throughout the world.

The new HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 42mm takes on the burden of health monitoring with a discrete and elegant wearable that constantly keeps track of a range of health variables. This gives the user peace of mind to continue with their day in the knowledge that their wellbeing is in safe hands. The new generation HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 builds upon the previous version with advanced AI and sensors that provide insightful analytics for everything from heart rate to stress levels.

Too high, too low heart rate warning

Based on the previous generation, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 has the all-new self-developed TruSeen™ 3.5 heart rate monitoring technology. This can accurately monitor the heart rates of people with different skin colours through innovative light path results. The device can monitor user heart rate in real-time 24 hours a day, as well as check sleep quality to improve mental state and energy levels. For the first time, Huawei has also implemented a discrete non-visible light monitoring method.

The heart rate monitoring capabilities of the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 is designed to help users track their heart rate. If the heart rate is higher than 100 bpm or lower than 50 bpm for more than 10 minutes in its inactive state, the user will receive a notification (these values can both be adjusted).  

Sleep scientifically recorded to promote a restful night

Getting a good night’s sleep on a regular basis is essential in helping us to bring the body and mind back into balance. Unfortunately, today we often work late or stay up to binge-watch series, meaning we get little of the deep sleep we need to wake up full of energy the next morning.

The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 addresses these issues with its TruSleep™ 2.0 feature. This monitors sleep quality, provides real-time heart rate monitoring, sleep breathing quality, and big data analysis to score sleep quality. Combined with Huawei AI technology, the sportswatch accurately identifies six typical sleep problems: difficulty falling asleep, shallow sleep, light sleeping during the night and early waking. It also provides hundreds of sleep improvement suggestions and personalised sleep services, such as meditation, deep sleep guidance exercises and quick relaxation guidance exercises. In addition, 8 sleep reports are created, including shallow sleep ratio, deep sleep continuity and sleep recommendations. All of this helps you improve the quality of your sleep.

Take a deep breath for less pressure and a joyful body and mind

These days, many people are used to sitting in front of a computer for long hours. The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 can helpfully remind the sedentary wearer to get up and exercise at regular intervals, emitting a tone that encourages the user to stand up and move if he or she has been inactive for a certain amount of time. This function can be turned off under special circumstances. 

The fitness device can also record your daily step count, number of calories burned, as well as the number of times you stand. Office workers, for example, are then given tools to help them adjust their schedule at work to incorporate more movement so they can keep energised.

The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 also comes with HUAWEI TruRelax™ technology, which helps users relieve stress by recording heart rate variability values and providing feedback on the user's stress index.

Finally, the classic and feminine design of the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 42mm means it will stay in style and is the ideal accessory, no matter the setting or occasion. The all-in-one 3D glass surface with a full screen and borderless design is equally at home during a business meeting as it is during a workout at the gym.

As the pressures of life continue to increase it is no surprise many of us ignore our health to keep pace with the demands of modern life. The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 42mm is a convenient and powerful virtual health adviser that uses advanced technology and sensors to make sure you continue to be at your best.

The elegant HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 42mm is available at a RRP of R4 499 and can be purchased at the Huawei online store (www.huaweistore.co.za), Sportsman’s Warehouse, Cape Union Mart and Totalsports.
