In October 2018, Huawei launched its Watch GT for the first time along with Huawei Mate 20 smartphones. However, the company did not launch the smartwatch in the Indian markets. After months, Huawei has now confirmed that it will be launching its Watch GT in India on March 12, 2019. The company sent out invites for its Huawei Watch GT confirming its arrival in India. Additionally, the smartwatch will make its debut in a launch event scheduled in New Delhi. Watch GT will be up for sale on Amazon India.

The upcoming smartwatch will sport a 1.39-inch OLED touch screen display with a screen resolution of 454 x 454 pixels and a pixel density of 326ppi. On the design end, the smartwatch features a round dial along with an interchangeable strap. Furthermore, it is one of the water resistant smartwatches that can easily be dunked in 50 meters of water without any damage. Some of the features on the Watch GT will include a heart rate monitor and exercise tracker for logging 90 minutes of activity every week.
