Imagine a smartwatch that can track your breathing, your sleep cycle, your heart rate and possible arrhythmia — and for ladies, even your fertility and menstruation cycles.

That’s a smart watch.

Now imagine it can run up to 14 days on a single charge, and seamlessly pair with both iOS and Android devices.

That’s a double wow.

And imagine it takes the Huawei Watch family even further into innovation, with a fashion-forward series that makes it even more expertly tailored to your personality.

You’re gonna want one.

Last week, Huawei Philippines announced pre-orders for its highly anticipated Huawei Watch GT 4, offering media guests a sneak peek at the premium fashion smartwatch features at a special gala launch held at Blackbird restaurant.

The location was symbolic: the Makati location was once home to the Philippines first airport: a leap into flight was a theme of the evening, as well as high-powered driving, which is why the Huawei watch is named after the Grand Tourer (GT) racing car, which combines luxury and endurance.

Along with its tech-forward features, The Huawei GT 4 is its most fashion-forward yet. The Huawei Watch GT 4 in 46mm has a striking Octagonal Dial design and comes with a strong and sturdy exterior, while the Huawei Watch GT 4 in 41mm has a sleek and pristine Pendant design, fashioned to resemble statement jewelry pieces.

Huawei Philippines Consumer Business Group CEO Peter Peng revealed the health features and price points of the GT 4 series.

You can personalize it with dozens of strap options, hundreds of setting options for home screen, and thousands of digital face design choices. Yet it’s remarkably thin.

“Our wearable strategy is to be ‘Fashion Forward,’ which means we’ve been innovating our wearables to be able to provide Filipinos access to a more stylish, healthy and smart lifestyle,” said Peter Peng, country head for Huawei Philippines Consumer Business Group. “With the Huawei Watch GT 4, consumers can enjoy a stylish watch that can also help them improve their lifestyle with different health management and smart features to achieve an elevated life.”

Those features were outlined by Huawei Consumer Business Group public relations manager Paulina Alberto as a host of models and celebrities touted the new features. One fan is fashion icon Jericho Rosales: “The Huawei Watch GT 4 is the perfect watch for people who like functionality, style and fun,” he says. “The heart rate monitor and the exercise courses are my favorite features. Plus I can get notified about important things like my messages and weather without checking my phone; it’s like a buddy on my wrist. Not to mention the battery life lasts for days without charging and you can choose hundreds of watch faces for it in the Huawei Health App.”

The GT 4 series boasts an impressive battery life of up to 14 days of usage on the 46mm and seven days on the 41mm, outperforming similar devices in the market.

Some other cool options: with the Huawei MatePad 11” device (also demonstrated), you can dream up your own designs and make them the face of your GT 4.

They even launched a gold Huawei Ultimate Watch that was a conversation piece of the evening.(Huawei’s Peter Peng sported it throughout the program.)

All in the wrist

With its 46mm Octagonal and 41mm Pendant designs and seven distinctive colorways, users can make their GT 4 very personal. For the 46mm, choose from the Grey Stainless Steel Strap, Green Woven Strap, Brown Leather Strap and Black Fluoroelastomer Strap; for the sophisticated 41mm, there’s Silver with Two-tone Piano Key Bracelet, White Leather Strap and Black Fluoroelastomer Strap.(I personally like the Green Woven strap, made from recycled polyester and nylon.)

Get even more expressive with 12 new watch face designs as well as access to over 25,000 official and third-party watch faces on the Huawei Watch Face Store.

Healthwise, three major new features — PPG Arrhythmia Analysis,Menstrual Cycle Management 3.0, and Sleep Breathing Awareness — allow you to personalize and maximize your activity goals.

Pulse Wave Arrhythmia Analysis uses trademark TruSeen 5.5+ tech and algorithm optimization to alert users of any irregular heartbeats detected, using the smartwatch’s LED sensors to measure changes in blood volume through light absorption and a photodetector at the surface of skin, capturing vital data on the user’s heart rate, rhythm and irregular patterns.

The watch also adds upgraded Menstrual Cycle Management 3.0 to intelligently analyze the user’s physiological indicators, such as heart rate during sleep, body temperature and breathing rate to predict menstrual periods; Sleep Breathing Awareness detects your optimum sleep cycles and nap times.

The improved Activity Rings display daily fitness statistics (calories burnt, exercise duration, activity while standing) at a glance. You can choose from up to 100 Sports modes to tailor your health monitoring to your favorite activity.

All of it in a very sleek, chic package. The smartwatch market is indeed growing here, and Huawei’s GT 4 makes it all the more irresistible to pair smart tech with smart,stylish features.
