The latest smartwatch is not only the wearer’s smart assistant, but also their personal training coach. Through recording environmental and health data, the Huawei Watch GT Runner can formulate scientific and effective training plan, providing users with comprehensive and professional fitness experience.
The Huawei Watch GT Runner is compatible with Huawei devices as well as other Android and iOS devices. The Huawei Watch GT Runner will be available in Qatar on 20th January for QR1,299, with a Huawei FreeLace earphones gift valued at QR299 on Huawei’s official website and select retailers and exclusively at Sports Corner Store in Qatar.

Built for sports
The Huawei GT Runner is a professional runner watch that was built for sports. It features the new HUAWEI TruSeenTM 5.0+ heart rate monitoring technology , bringing a newly upgraded heart rate module, 8 PDs in a circular arrangement, enhanced dynamic heart rate monitoring, more signal input, and an overall improved heart rate monitoring accuracy.
In the development process of the new Huawei TruSeen 5.0+, Huawei is dedicated to offering a more accurate heart rate monitoring experience. Thanks to the new PPG 5.0 module, the accuracy of heart rate monitoring is greatly improved compared to the previous generation. The deviation of 10 bpm in most scenarios can reach more than 97% , which is as accurate as a heart rate belt. The Huawei TruSeen 5.0+’s powerful anti-interference and noise reduction design can better cope with the motion noise caused by irregular movement, and improves the accuracy of heart rate measurement when working out, including during HIIT, yoga, aerobics, skipping rope, etc.
Huawei Watch GT Runner has great performance in a small watch body and features five major satellite systems: GPS + Beidou + GLONASS + Galileo + QZSS. In addition, it also has a built-in Dual-Band Five-System GNSS positioning chip with a suspended hidden antenna that hides the positioning antenna in the lugs made of polymer fibre material. This reduces the interference of positioning signal caused by metal material. The innovative design improves the performance of the GPS antenna by 135% compared with the traditional design, which solves the pain points of balancing positioning accuracy and compact design, and further realises marathon track-level precise positioning without trajectory drift.
Huawei Watch GT Runner focuses on the runners’ circle and gains insight into the in-depth running data. While ensuring the watch body is light and wear-resistant, it also gives the watch an artistic design. Drawing inspiration from the supercar’s air intake grille, Huawei Watch GT Runner delivers a stylish design that represents speed and passion. Moreover, the hollowed-out watch lug increases the contact area with the air when running, so that it is sweat resistant and breathable, which results in a more comfortable wearing experience.
Huawei Watch GT Runner adopts lightweight materials such as the high-strength polymer fibre body, which is light and comfortable. The weight of the entire watch body is as light as 38.5g , which means runners can barely notice it as they run. The antibacterial silicone watchstrap that comes with the smartwatch has good water-resistance, so runners do not need to worry about sweat and dirt contacting the strap during training. The Huawei Watch GT Runner comes with an exclusive data watch face that shows data including training load, RAI, recovery time and weather, and users can customise according to their needs.
Up to 2-weeks long battery life
Huawei Watch GT Runner inherits the powerful battery life of Huawei’s wearable family, delivering 14-day battery life in smart mode under typical usage scenarios and offers 8-day of long battery life in heavy usage scenario.
All-day health management

The Huawei Watch GT Runner sports the Huawei TruSleep 2.0 sleep monitoring technology which can perform sleep stage monitoring, real-time heart rate monitoring, sleep breathing monitoring, and provide you with assessment of sleep quality without disturbing your sleep. The Huawei Watch GT Runner is also a stress management assistant. This sports watch monitors your stress 24/7 and it will even notify you if your stress levels are high and even help you out with breathing guidance to help relieve some of the stress off you.
