Huawei’s flagship product launch event took place earlier today where we saw the global debut of the Mate Xs 2 foldable phone as well as three smartwatches and a smartband. Watch GT 3 Pro is the flagship offering with a premium design and a boatload of health and activity tracking features.
Watch Fit 2 is a more affordable entry with a long-lasting battery and sleek looks. Watch D places health tracking first with its blood pressure and ECG trackers while Band 7 is the most affordable entry with a thin and light design and two weeks battery life.
